Anyway I was wandering to the Post Office on Monday and popped into a 'local shop' (I think that we both know the type I am talking about) - saw this for the grand sum of ten of our Kingdom's pounds. As it happens I bought a smaller version of this dolls house about four years ago for two of our Kingdom's pounds (and it had lot of furniture) so I was not sure if this purchase was a good buy. However this one is bigger, better condition and has a balcony!!!
Detail preserved for posterity....
The poor home was in a bit of a sorry state and needed a clean up - so it was all hands on deck for a 60 minute makeover!!!
The furniture all comes from other dolls houses that we have (oh dear that awful cough again...) - the little cushions I made (after a fashion) for Maille a few years ago. I hear that Draylon is making a comeback!
Bronte was chuffed to find that the bath could hold water so put bubbles in to celebrate!
I am fed up of telling the children to close the fridge door.....
We decided to set our hair in rollers for the evening
...and we are very pleased with our new 'phone
All in all we were very pleased with our ten pounds worth of fun.
It was a shame that my big head got in stage right (or left depending upon your perspective!). This kept us entertained for hours and we then got the other dolls houses out....anyway the point is that you don't need to spend a fortune.
Vintage - the gift that keeps on giving, ho, ho!
