A house in progress!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to my newest follower- Alennka! :D

Here is the Curiosity Shop as it currently stands! The brickwork on the front is finished- I'm aware there's gaps but they're meant to be there- you'll see why soon enough!

Last night I sat and painted all the window frames then realised most Edwardian windows were white...silly me. It made me think though, does my shop have to be Edwardian? I chose that era because it's one I've never really studied before (hence my mistake) but now I'm thinking maybe I'm going to do my house based on the things I love. It's still going to have strong Victorian influences which will lead into Edwardian because I love the Victorian era. The brown frames are born out of inspiration from my grandparents favourite place in the world.

Let me know what you do with your own houses- do you strictly stick to a certain era? Or simply go where the wind takes you?
