This is Mrs B, she is the cook/housekeeper. As you can see she is waiting for the hairdresser to come. Wigging is soooo hard. I am on my fourth try! Keeping my fingers crossed that when the glue is dry and I start to style her hair that the hairline is neat and in the right place. Second try was the closest, her hair went into a nice bun and then I realised that her hair started a third of the way up the back of her head.

These are my first attempts to decorate masks. Pretty basic but they were incredibly fiddly! I have another set and someday I will try to be more adventurous.

My first (and only) room box - very purple. I made the desk from a kit especially for this room but it takes up so much room, I would like to add ballgown on a model but I don't think it will fit!! I think I will have to go back to the drawing board.

Just finished this chair. My dog Holly who sits and watches the bunnies out the window while I work ate all the scraps of leather that I put in the rubbish bin, apparently they were too yummy to throw out. Her picture is my blog picture. She is sitting with Teddy - he is the one who tells her what to do and gets into trouble all the time!!

This is my maid's attic bedroom, the quilt and the chest that is beside the bed are the first miniatures that I made.

The quilt is made from scraps of material left over from the one I made for my bed. (It took me 10 years to finish - my house was started 10 years ago and only half finished!)

I have just finished the bed. I must thank Casey from Casey's Minis for the tutorial. She has given my the confidence to try and make a bed of my own!!

My bathroom and my kitchen are the rooms that are mostly complete.
