To My Surprise.......................

Dollshouse Hobbyroom Workbench

Being at the cabin, my DHMS was a day late coming to me.
To my surprise and staring at me on pg. 12 in Sept. issue,
was the JH's Kit that I had finished a couple of weeks ago.
My workbench will go in the hobbyroom of my Victorian Dollshouse
 that is yet to be completely finished building. 

I was very impressed with some of the ideas for tools etc. in this kit.

The 1st photo is a close up of the right top. 

The 2nd photo is a close up of the under shelf. 

Finished project.

Micro mini dollshouse with the front and roof removed.

This was a very well planned kit project.
My thanks go to Jane for the pleasures it gave me..

Kit Weather

Rain Showers

This past week has been great indoors weather.
I've been busy making-up some miniature kits
for my 1:48 scale Petite Properties, Bay Tree Manor.

This bedroom furniture is from JH's Kits
as well as the easel and chair below.

The Settle and sq.table and chair are JH's Kits.
The other kitchen funiture and the the madeup bed are made out of card
from the instructions in
PP, Making Dolls House Furniture iin 1:48 scale by Fiona Bradwood.

These projects have been great fun and very good projects to have with me to the cabin.
They don't take up much space in luggage.

Time to be thinking of buying
a new raincoat and splasy rubberboots
if this summer weather keeps up.

bye bye

My First 1:48 Petite Properties Ltd. House

I can now image the finished house.
This house was put together in a group with Torhild Fornes.
There will be 6 finished houses in the end.
Torhild was a very good teacher for the different techniques

I tried a new rusting technique with
Ten Seconds Studios Verday Paint on the dorm-roofs.
TSS site & videos
I also ordered a PP "Lean To" Greenhouse Kit.
Petite Properties Ltd. site

"Deleted Post"
See why I had to redo the stove.
I took the wrong measurements 1st time around.
Learning curve READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS before starting.

See my measurement mistake and the redone kitchen sove.
Some difference!
