Nice and snug!!

I have quite a lot of babies, I keep coming across them in different boxes so I thought I had better decorate this pram. It was just a cheap one all black and very plain. I was going to make a cover in velvet but couldn't find a colour that I liked, I will keep looking. I was going to start my Dining Room at the weekend but I didn't get as much done as I would have liked. The power went off early Sunday morning and still wasn't on when I left to have a shower at my daughter's house this morning. When we lose power we have no water as the pump to the bore is electric. Very annoying!! The weather here was very rough we had one tree uprooted and another lost a was a big gum tree and the branch was as big as a tree!!

I have had this chaise for a while and have just got around to decorating it. I had to make the quilt to go over the back because I didn't like the bare expanse of cream. The book and chocolates I bought at a local Doll, Bear & Miniature Fair. The quilt is glued to the wood so it would stay there and not slip off.

Danith now has hair. I have some of Megan's hair (I've kept it for 13 years just for this purpose!) but I couldn't get it to stick, maybe I needed a different glue.

You can tell that I am new to this. I'm sure that you can work out which rooms are which. I can't seem to get the words to correspond with the photos when I have more than one photo. I also have to get the last photo first and work back.....can't find how to do it the other way around.
Here are some photos of my house. I would say that it is an Australian Victorian. My Grandmother had a house like this (only one storey) when I was growing up. I haven't secured the front and side panels yet, I thought it would be easier to decorate if they were separate.

The first floor room that is empty will be the Library, Music, Billiards Room, The ground floor will be the Sitting Room.
The empty room in the centre of the attic will be the Nursery.

This shows the left hand side the kitchen is on the ground floor and the bedroom is above it. The maid's bedroom is in the attic.

Other side open ..The bathroom is on the first floor, the dining room will be under it. The childrens bedroom/playroom will be in the attic.

Side closed.

Holly wanted to know why I was lying on the floor taking photos. As you can see just as I was about to take a photo of her she moved...the story of my life.. she doesn't like to have her photo patience.

Meet Danith, she was a bit easier to dress as I worked out the dress pattern on Mrs B, hopefully it will be easier to wig her. Mrs B's head moves and the elastic made a bump on her scalp.

Here is Mrs B with hair. Not as good as I hoped it would be. I will probably redo her as I get better. She looks at home in her kitchen.
