That's awesome, Knickertwists! If anyone can pull it off, you can!

I started making some wee tiny books for the study in my house. I also added some moss to the roof since I lasted posted some pics. Have a look:



There are a couple of half-finished books on the desk. To the right is a little brain in a jar that a friend made for me. Smiley


Here's the desk as it will be placed in the house.


I also got the little bed halfway finished. It's a bit hard to see, but I painted it gold and glued a little purple mattress to it.


I hope to get several books mostly done tonight. Hooray for progress!

Yay, more Knickertwist magic to witness!
Second hand dollhouses always trigger my imagination. Who played with it, what were they like, where are they now, why did they leave their dollhouse behind?
Good luck with the deadline, I can't wait to see what you do with this new wee house!

Ashgrim, your house is looking great! And the brain in a jar is both fabulous and hilarious!

lol, before I actually read your message, Knickertwist, my brain was spasming a bit because looking at the pics, I knew it wasn't your work, but there the pics were in your post.

I love the visual of your mum and granny snatching this house from impending trashery.

I finished some of my tiny books last night. I'm really pleased with how they came out.


Now only about 20 more to go...

Managed to strip out a fair bit of the inside mess. The room on the top right was a NIGHTMARE. I think they used some sort of alien magic material to install the carpet... I'm sure Voldemort was involved somehow.



Because that floor was in such a mess and I have limited time, I'm going to give the whole place a stone floor. Stone floors don't really make sense on the second floor of a cottage type place but I'm not big on making sense Wink Here's the first step complete. I've got to let that set and dry before moving forward.
