I moved the pub over to the other side in its place.
It actually works really well here as the garden area serves as a pub garden!
Babs never photographs well it always looks like a big jumbly mess but it is a very organised mess!
Babs has her counter right at the front now so she can welcome her customers.
I did take out the existing wooden staircase as it took up a lot of room. I really wanted to use my spiral one somewhere before it ended up getting broken as it didn't have a home! It actually works really well in here and looks perfect for the style of shop!
Upstairs are the shoes and accessories....again really hard to get a good photo!
She had to have a door curtain!
Downstairs is the new police station. Its very bare at the mo lots to do in here mostly working out how to make a cell!
Martin the policeman is now very happy he has a place to bring his arrests too! He likes to keep the village crime free! This man has been arrested on suspicion of burglary!
This man was at the pirate party and had a few to many rums so Martin brought him in to sleep it off for a few hours!
Pride of place my lovely hearth and home aga!
I couldn't fit all the kitchen units in but it really only needed 2 so that worked ok!
I had this little barewood table so I painted it to match the units. I just need to varnish the top!
My good friend Deb came up trumps again with her gorgeous knitting! She made me some lovely blankets for my biddies but I stole this one for the cottage just cos I liked the splash of colours it added to the room! (Theres also one on the police station bed!)
It had to have a bit of bunting added!
Another blanket....yep you guessed from Deb! Not quite sure what I would do without her, my village certainly wouldn't be quite the same!
Gladys has bagged this one she liked the bright colours!
A few new things in the rest home! I am loving this project so much its such fun and just makes me smile!!!
Alice (named after my nan cos she looks just like her!) is very pleased her new zimmer has arrived and now theres no stopping her
There's also a guest! Wilbur is just a day visitor to the home as only the ladies are allowed to stay the night! He comes along each day for some afternoon tea and to watch a bit of bargain hunt on the tv and just generally for the ladies company!
There are also a couple of new plaques on the cottages. This one is on the rest home and its so cute!
This one is on the post office....
And finally this one on the sewing shop. All made by Julie Lawton they are fab as always!
