When thinking about this blog I searched for some old photo's, they were taken in my first year. The main difference to the layout is I have removed two sets of stairs and relocated the fireplaces to the back wall.

The rooms are very basic, I was still on my learning curve, top left hand is my butlers room., I had just brought my dining room furniture and in the process of making my floors.
Below the kitchen was well on it's way, I have a sink at this time and my beautiful light switches, both now removed. But Thomas the cat was in residence.

When I brought my dolls house, I decided I would make a journal and fill it as I did my building, add all the purchases from shows and build a good record. That lasted for 6 months tops, I would forget or be too tired and then I would try and catch up, so it lapsed.
Then I found blogging and wow, just what I wanted, but what happens in years to come when these sites change, so I have started printing all my blogs, I knew it was the correct thing to do when I went into W H Smiths and the clear pouch books and the files were all half price.
So on my shelf are two sets,
white for Somerset House and
purple for Poppy Patchwork,
I highlight each blog with any comments a few days after posting select print, tick the selected box and out it all comes from my printer. On occasions a picture is cut in half, then I copy into a word document , tidy it up and then print. I have found this site which also has suggestions for printing your blog. http://justsomethingimade.blogspot.com/2009/05/printing-my-blog.html
I would like to think sometime in the future someone finds a box in the attic and finds all my notes and they enjoy a coffee, if it is still allowed and reads what Nanna did.

  1. What a fantastic idea. A lot of people are upset because their sites have closed down and it could happen in the future. We spend a lot of time on our blogs and it would be great to save them. Thank you for this great idea. I will looking forward to all your work on your dollhouse. It looks great right now.
