I hope you're having a lovely, relaxed Christmas. I just thought I'd share with you all what miniatures I received yesterday.
Everything above is from the Dolls House Emporium. The above items (in case you fancy them, too) are:
1. Letter box (non opening)
2. Door Plates and Knobs x2
3. Blue and White Jardiniere
4. Granny's Washtub
5. Angel Shelf Sitter
6. Queen Victoria Figurine Teapot
7. Sculptured Bust of Queen Victoria
8. Decorative Coal Shuttle
9. Hinges and Pins, 4 pieces
10. Bride and Groom Picture
11. Twelve larder packets
Here are some close ups of my favourite items:
The items are going to be spread between Wentworth Court and The Curiosity Shop. I'm glad I got the details for the shop front door because now I have no excuse to crack on and get it fixed! I'm also particularly glad I received new hinges as I'm afraid to admit I through the original fixtures away in a flash of bad temper! If anyone can recommend an easier way to do the hinges- please do!
I also received some wallpapers which I shall use in the bathroom and bedroom of the Curiosity Shop. For some reason, on the photos they appear textured- I can state that they are not. The wallpapers are 'Pink Victorian Cameo Wallpaper' and 'Blue Rose Pattern Wallpaper'. I have a huge affinity to the Victorian era for reasons unknown so I simply had to include nods to that era in the Curiosity Shop since Wentworth Court (Georgian era) couldn't possibly allow me to indulge!
This is called 'Victoriana Cut-Out Sheet'.
Have a lovely new year!
