I got Fishermans Rest for a very good price from Ebay! My friend Carol was really helpful and went to all sorts of trouble to get it collected and sent up to me! Its a lovely little house with its little yard.
Fishermans rest fitted so well on the windowsil I decided it needed a mate! Because of it being quite low and the way the roof sits it doesn't block the light which is great!
Julie made me a lovely little matching shop and they sit perfectly together! It came unpainted as its a little cheaper and Julie hates the painting and I don't mind it so its a win win lol!
I decided to go with a soft pinky lilac and make it a nursery shop.
It was unpainted inside and a hole cut for the stairs. A very nice lady from Facebook sent me the stairs for just the postage cost! I also decided to go with carpet rather than the usual wooden floors. It was a cost issue but I actually really like it so I think I will keep it like this!
I am so happy with this little shop! Its moved a few times and when you find the right home you just know it!!
I now have a very long list of things I need from Thimblemins!!
Last but not least is Harbourside Cottage. I had to have this when I saw it as I just loved the exterior stairs and the big display window!!
At the moment Babs Boutique is upstairs but shes not staying! Downstairs will be a proper seaside/icecream shop
I took a few pictures with all the lights on and they came out quite well! That is a lot of bulbs to keep going!!!!
Also I know its not dolls house related but at Easter we lost our beloved Sandy dog :-( She was 13 and had cancer and her loss left us all devastated. She would often sit in Dollyland with me and I miss her terribly!! Losing her hit us all very hard but none more than Bethany. After a few days of seeing her so utterly bereft we decided there really was only one thing to do!!! We did an 8 hour round trip to a breeder in Edinburgh and collected our new baby Daisy. She was 8 weeks old and so tiny!! Shes now 15 weeks and has lifted a very dark cloud from above our house! She adores Bean and they are such great buddies already! We will never forget Sandy but she has def helped heal our broken hearts!!
RIP beautiful Sandy dog we still miss you terribly!! xxxxxxx
