WooHoo!! They are Coming

They should be here in a few days, the new residents of The Sweeney and Lovett Pie Shop are on their way!!
If you check out my older post I put a photo of the original dolls that Julie made for another customer. These are ALL MINE!!!
Julie Campbell of Bella Belle Dolls so kindly agreed to recreate her Sweeney Todd and Mrs Lovett for me after I saw her original dolls on her website at Christmas. As soon as I saw them i knew I had to have them but unfortunatly they were already spoken for , and out of my budget. So after much sulking and fiddling around with the old savings figures, i contacted Julie again and she so very kindly agreed to remake the dolls in my budget and as she was so busy, it gave me time to start saving the pennies for these fabulous dolls.

She emailed me last week to say they were finished and here are the results. I agree with Julie that Sweeney has actually turned out to be even better than her original, more Johnny Depp looking, which is great with me!!!

So now I will sit each day like a puppy at the postbox waiting for the posty to bring my new homeowners.
Cant wait to get those walls up, my counter by Vicky with all the pies etc in place for them to stand by to take a photo.
Then its time to start saving (or selling another kidney!!! ) to buy the barbers chair I have my eye on!!!
Oh and then its the bit John hates the most, finding a perfect spot for the house to stand pride of place, which means much furniture shuffling, and much groaning by hubby!!!

Lovely Dolls, lucky girl..

Great dolls! I think groaning hubbies are a usual accessory for miniaturists, regardless if said hubby partakes of the hobby himself. ;-)

He He arnt I lucky! Thanks Deb and Marsha,when they arrice ill take a photo of them in situ by the house! Kat, poor john, its just all the houses are getting bigger and bigger, sort of take over the house! Its not like I can just pop this house in a corner , its a major move in as its a big 'un!! His favourite the Potter house looks great in the Dining room. This may have to go in the conservatory, its not for the weak stomached so cant go in the living room!!xx
