The Bathroom and a tiny cross stich sampler...

Hello crafty friends, this morning I would like to share another couple of photos of my dolls house. Firstly a tiny cross stitch sampler dimensions are 1.5 inches x 2.5inches. I worked it on fine Linen and framed it with narrow edging. It hangs in the master bedroom of the house.

The Victorian Bathroom. Don't you just love that bath !! Tiny towels made from Aida hang on the bath and towel rail. Inside the Linen cupboard are tiny towels made from my Son's old Baby Grows many many years ago, they have the perfect tiny towling needed for a miniature towel. On the wall is an ornate mirror above the inset sink unit. Sorry not a very clear photo.

And of course the Victrian WC complete with wooden seat and high cistern and if you look closely you will see the toilet roll holder on the wall made from jewellery findings.
The table in the corner started life as a chess piece and I added a marble button and a small bead with a flower. You can see it a bit clearer in the pic above.

That's it for today, I hope you enjoyed another little look at the house.  Thanks for popping into Teeny Tiny Toatie

The Kitchen...

 Hello again, the kitchen the heart of the home especially in Victorian times, the cook and the upstairs maid preparing lunch/ dinner for the family. Both dolls are hand made with Fimo, as you can see the tea pot had found it's way to the middle of the Made from Fimo and I knitted the 
Tea Cosy with very fine wool and miniature needles. All the food was made with Fimo and some of the pots and dishes too. Furniture Aga and sink all made with Balsa wood.

 This pic shows the old fashioned Pully and Wringer and the little copper kettle on the Aga one of my favourite things in the house.

I hope you enjoyed looking at the kitchen and all it's contents. I'll be back later with more photo's.

Thanks for popping in

A Victorian Dolls House......

Hello again today I have some pics of my Dolls House, below you can get an idea of the size. It's made to 1/12 scale and that is my Grand Daughter Niamh who will soon be 4. She loves playing with it.

Master bedroom ...everything in this room is hand made
The Parlour......all set for Christmas the doll on the left I bought but the one on the right is hand made, you can see a miniture working clock on the mantle. All the furniture and carpets in this room except the tree is handmade, even the little ornaments are made from old jewellery pieces.

A couple of little sneak peeks from my dolls house which was made for me by my Hubby 25 years ago......time really flies. It now resides in My Mother in Law's house in the hall just at her front door She always loved it and she has more space than me for showing it off.
 All my little Great Nieces and my Grandchildren love to play with it and frequently have it all mixed up inside. These pics were taken at the weekend on a visit to Granny Annie's with our three Grandchildren.
 I sorted it out a little bit before taking the photos. Hubby built the actual house and I furnished it. Most of the furniture I made using Balsa wood and all the rugs were hand made some using Tapestry and other were done with cross stitch.
I'll be back soon with more photo's, until then thanks for popping in
