This little 'vintage' house is set in the early 1920s. From the look of the furniture I think it's been used by several little girls before the present 'occupant' :) The wallpaper was aged by spraying tea on it, especially so above the fireplace as the paper always discolours there because of smoke from the fire. Can you find kitty?
A shot from above to show the quilt. I found the quilt block on the internet, 'pieced' several together to create the quilt, then printed it on fairly fine lawn which gives a slightly faded look to the finished print. The hot water bottle is painted air drying clay.
I'll post more showing the house as a whole when the electrician's been around to install the last light, and the housekeeper (who seems to have gone on an extended holiday) gives the place a jolly good clean and tidy! Oh yes, and the roofer hasn't been around yet either! Luckily we're having a warm dry spell because as well as no roof it's still without a front!!
I'm not sure if I should describe miniatures as a hobby or an obsession, but it's the best escape from the cares of the world that I know - and an opportunity to indulge a love of vintage decor without breaking the bank.
