Attic space and bedrooms...............

 I have sorted furniture for the maids room, many items I have had for ages, the iron bed and the bed cover has been waiting a couple of years for this room to go together, Fliss gave me the wash stand, and the bonnet was purchased a couple of years ago, I have always wanted this bonnet to be on show as the maids most prized possession. The room is made smaller by not having the full depth, I have another fake wall at the back, with a rag rug on the floor, I won't have much more to add here

This is going to be a nursery room with day beds in, but as you can see I have to buy/make alot to go in this room, the beds I want older than 1820, I want these to be from the parents time.
 On the floor below, I have change to daughter's room, I have moved the bed to the other wall and took the drawers from the green room, these fit in the corner, I still need to dress this room, the daughter is grown up and has visited Paris, which she loved.
 I have put both these pieces in here, both made by the same local craftsman, and both correct for the period, I am still looking for a nice hip bath, I am happy to wait until I find a nice enough one, which I can afford. I have a bath with claw foots I put in for now, which is totally incorrect.
 The master green room, I have not done much with, I have put the desk to the back of the room, I love the green bench seat, which now we can see more. I also have the bigger chest of drawers near the door, this is another hand made piece, which should be at the front where we can see it, but I love the sea chest, and that looks better in front.
There is a good show in April, down in The New Forest, I hope to be well enough to go, so now I have a list of things I would like to get, and I can feel a visit to a couple of local shops.

This is my 99th post, so I will have a give away for my followers next time, I have a kit in mind, if you are up for a challenge.

Watch this space.
