Ive had a brain Wave!! New Project coming soon!!!
Well I finally made a desicion to keep the Snow White house as it is but to put it on the garden that came with Kates cottage! I agree with Julie from Bella belle Dolls that it needs a window to have the wicked queen come visiting with her apples and I dont want to start cutting Kates Cottage about so thats now the plan!
The Kates Cottage will offically be my good witch house. I may or may not put it on a base. Or I may just leave it as it is and put the little shed next to it for the witches potting shed.
I want it in homely style, not messy witch style, and would like a nice stove, witches cooking table etc in the downstairs room, and a rustic bedroom upstairs.
I was emailing Michelle yesterday and I am so envious of her fantastic projects and really would love to do a Nanny Mc Phee house of my own but couldnt think what to use.
Then this morning I was browsing the blogs and found Debbie from Tiny Treasures new posting on some lovley 1 24th scale furniture and it got me thinking of my own 1 24th scale house.
This house was another Ebay impulse buy, but as soon as i got it I sort of regretted it as it didnt inspire me at all.
BUT, i was looking through the pics on the computer today and found the ones of the house and it just hit me..............Nanny Mc Phee, its perfect! Check out the already brightly, loud decorated walls. It is already lit too! It did come with furniture but Id like to change it and hunt down some of the Avon things Debbie has, especially for the lounge, they would be perfect if in the right scale.
The poor house was bundled into my wardrobe when it came and has sat there ever since. Some of the trim has broken off in transit so I need to remedy that. But as its only a small house I wont have a problem finding room for it, for a change! it may be tricky getting a 1 24th scale nanny made but Ill cross that bridge when I come to it.
Michelle! exciting eh, and this time we wont be fighting over the same things as mine is in a different scale. Its lovley to meet people with such similar tastes though, so we can bounce ideas off each other, and with Julia ( Bearcabin miniatures) and Old Maid into the same themes too, we will all end up with great houses Im sure!
Have a fun Sunday, Im off to dig around for it, and get fiddling!!
Oh and perfect timing as tomorrow is Lolas 8th birthday and we are off to the cinema to see Nanny Mc Phee and the Big Bang. I also bought her the book so we can read it afterwards. Will let you all know what the film is like.
