In a dark, dark corner of my bedroom... is a street!! :0) For anyone wondering what has happened to my other houses now that I have revamped the ground floor of my real life house... here they are! My wonderful, but very large Victorian Villa has re-located from the dining room to the understairs cupboard and the houses from there, had to move to make some room, so they have gone upstairs in a little corner above the wardrobes. The Wotnot Shop is finished and I will only work on the Little Abbey when it comes down for Christmas, so our Olde Post Office had to be in easy reach for me to finish.
This is the view looking in upstairs, it isn't lit, so sorry for the poor pic quality! I am going to leave the upstairs alone, as it is mainly done, but the post office is all ready for me to start dressing.
We made the the post office some years ago and it is extremely heavy, because the floor has real ceramic tiles. They went down really well and surprisingly stuck with just PVA glue! I have an idea to build shelveing units around the post office counter and either have a sewing shop or a grocers in the post office?
This is my inspiration... it is a shop which has been re-built to size and is in St Fagans, the Museum Of Welsh Life. There, they take down old buildings brick by brick and re-build them in the museum grounds. I love this place and visit at least twice a year, even though its quite a long drive from us.
Welcome To More New Followers, It's lovely to have you here and I hope you will enjoy my mini mutterings :0)
Well, I am off to clean, wash, cook, etc now... all the boring bits :0(
