Even though the house is far from finished yet, I wanted to show you the progress so far.
As I told you, first I will compleet the exterior of the house, before I will start at the interior.
This is the door that allowes access to the first floor and living part of the house. The door needs a doorknob and I like to put a grid for the window with an ornament. I also will place a fence for the stairs for some safetey.
The roof above the door is made from wood and lead.
I have painted the stairs a couple of times before I was satisfied...I like the outcome so far.
Is there living a.....mouse?
This is the door allowes access to the kitchen.
With a layer of tacky glue, I made the window
look old...love it! You can see through but not
clear...the curtain I made from a piece of old
lace Mercedes sent me.
To keep out intruders or just for a breath
of fresh air in the kitchen, without everyone
walking in, this iron fence will be very handy.
It is the same door I used in my little kitchen.
I like this very much, also because it reminded me
of Greece where my grandmothers house also had
these in front of every door.
Have you seen there are more houses in this
Also a memorie of my grandmothers house.....
I could not help myself allready to decorate
a little bit.... The pottery table needs much more stuff, but
somehow I think it will be no problem to fill
it up with bits and pieces.
As you can see the bigger picture, this side
of the house needs still much work. The upper
walls will get some bricked windows. In the earlier
time of this building they placed windows but later
it turned out new residents prevered blind walls.
At the lower part of the wall (near the stairs) there
will be a wall painting. The chimney needs also work,
As the most of you know, I told you My friend Sylvia was so kind to build me one...isn't that just amazing!
Some while ago, we made the plans and drawings for my house and yesterday I went to see Sylvia and my new house.....well as you can imagine I was just blown away by looking at it.
The last weeks I stoped making miniatures, because I wanted to focus me just on this house and I even changed my working space for it.....because the house is huge I needed more space to work on it. When the house is finished I will place it in my living room.
