A Spot of Miniature Decorating

Today we:
Bought a new pet budgie named Snowy...
And glued him inside a tiny birdcage with a dove for company...
Sat him near a new white ceramic clock and flower painting...
Hung a new chandelier in the bedroom...
Bought a yummy horse shoe cake, grapes and an original mesh covered cake stand...
Decorated the xmas tree with baubles, I wonder if it is bad luck to have it out so early?
The bedroom is the most complete room so far...
The bathroom is awaiting a slate floor, a sink and the mirror to be hung...
We fitted the butler sink in the freestanding kitchen...
Are waiting to hang the flying ducks and added a wooden wall clock...tick tock...
You would think these chocolates are real, well a mouse did! It has eaten the foil from the faux chocolate, bloomin thing!
Items mentioned were purchased today at the 2012 ACTME Miniature Fair and Doll House Show. You can see last years purchases here and our dollhouse progress here, here, here, here and here.

Back soon...we are hitting the car boot tomorrow and have a couple of things to show you from our op shop finds today :) T x

Thanks for the support of my sea creature creations and all your lovely comments, I truly appreciate it as I know that time is precious.

i love it. Coincidentally I have bought two beds for my dolly house today and a chest of draws from the carboot. One of the beds is too big and fills the room but I only paid 20p so its not a problem. Have a look at my post you will see a picture of my doll house I was so pleased to find it in a local charity shop.

I didn't know you had a dolls house - it's fantastic! A mini version of your own dream place surely! I've ordered a dolls house catalogue purely because it's free and has amazing stuff to browse through
