This has been my project during the past month, Paul and I bought this dolls house for daughter Jan when she was about 3 years of age that makes it 51 years ago, some of the original furniture had survived and the rest was from the second era for the house when about 22 years later we repainted and refurnished the house for Jan's daughters .At that time a sixth room was added by making it possible to open the roof and put the attic space to use. We wallpapered the rooms added carpets and some "Sylvanian family"furniture. Now Rachel and Caitlin have decided to pass the house on to their small cousin, We have seen photos of Eve at playgroup enjoying the dolls house there, I am sure she is going to love having one of her own.
The master bedroom and the lounge there was very little to do in these two rooms. I have only re upholstered the lounge suit.
When these arrived I realised we had more animals than beds so a new set of twin beds had to be added to the attic.
The guild challenge was to dress a peg doll for display at the Christmas party here are the ones I have not been able to show till now. This is my favourite "The Lady" Her dress has bulluion stitch roses down the front and the hem is edged with buttonhole loops. The cloak is cream silk lined with deeop red silk and has a stiffened Elizabethan style collar and the headgear is from even early period in history.
