I didn't get much work done on the dollhouse over Thanksgiving. Yesterday I started back to work. I had to move things around back to the living room work area from the office. I did more work on the fireplace and finished the first floor wood installation. The tile in the kitchen turned out to be too fine and exact for my mat knife so I extended the wood floor. The fireplace is not going to sit in the middle of the room, I just wanted you to be able to see it. Still much to be done but I put some of the furnishings in to impress the family on thanksgiving.
|Outside still needs windows, trim and shutters.|
|Roof on and first floor finished.|
|Small lantern on table to left was specially made by Mike. He is making a bigger one to hang from the ceiling.|
The quilt on the bed still needs to be quilted. The table is from my father's English Leather aftershave long, long ago.
|One of my granddaughters claimed this as her bed and added an acorn for a pillow.|
|The granddaughter also saw some tissue paper on my desk, tore some off and showed me how it |
would make a good fire in the fireplace. Still need to finish the inside and the hearth.
|Attic wallpaper = mini-newspapers, and another aftershave table and some future pie pans.|
