Catching up

I have done nothing to my curtains I was planning to make, feeling tired most of the week I have been doing my cross stitch. I have also been sorting a few cupboards changing items from the dining room to the spare room, it felt as if I had just stuffed things away without thinking of how much I use these items.

Kev and I were sat in our office, the only place we have not decorated, as you will see from the two photo's we have alot of things in this small room. Kev's desk is large without having alot of work space. We have an 8 foot window in here with loads of light. we spoke of buying new desk's mine is tatty, we have come up with a plan to create a bench along the window wall, which would be 9 foot long( 3mtrs), which would give us both more space, move my dolls house to the other side, which gives it more protection, no-one would have to walk past it. This would give us more space in the middle of the room. I quickly did a room plan ( this was a previous job of mine to plan and design office space) and it all fits in well. Kev went on line and found a perfect bench. Our big cupboard would stay, it's metal and the lower drawers are fill of my magazines for stitching and dolls house. So my head is full of plans.

We are busy with wedding plans through out August, but Kev has holiday in September, so fingers crossed, we will get it done and then my house will be better placed for me to work on it.

One small thing I have done is to move my beach hut, it was sat on top of my house, as I have not yet built the attic's. I have moved it to our bedroom, as you walk into the room we have a high free standing storage unit, and I have created the display there, using a tea light light house, which I often use. I have no lights in the hut, I will tidy the beach area and add a few more items.

I would hope to do some mini's but I have wedding things to do for Su, and a couple of hospital appointments this week, and of course cross stitch.


  1. I love your beach house. Is it a kit? What a nice way to display it together with the lighthouse.

  2. It was a kit, I made it on a saturday workshop with our local dollshouse club.........

  3. Your beach house looks lovely! Your office looks a bit like ours - but looking forward to seeing it progress! Good luck with the wedding plans and hospital appointments.

  4. Hello Marlene,
    I couldnt find any place on your blog to email but thought this comment would do. I just love your dollhouse! So much time, effort, thought & love have gone into it.
    I too am into dollhouse & accessories. I have been doing some room changes in my house - trying to make some more needed space. My husband built me 2 large dollhouses that are 5 stories high. I call them my Condo's or Skyscrapers. (but they arent). The tennants lease their apartments. I have been doing mini's for about 14 years. I do some ideas on the exterior colors for those condo's. Maybe you could help me decide on how to fix it up. I just love mini's & cant wait to put them in a room & show you on my blog - remakeremixreuse.blogspot.com.

  5. La casa grande es preciosa y la de la playa tiene su encanto.
    Un saludo
