I finally made the brick lining for the kitchen fireplace! It's going to be largely concealed behind ovens and grates and things, but it's done. The hearth is just a piece of peel and stick floor tile which I'll paint to look more rustic, but it's covering up some ugly stuff right now, so I thought I'd just leave it in place for the photo :)
I need to dash out to my local model shop and pick up some more thin balsa strips to finish the panelling in the parlour, then I think I can glue the whole bottom floor together! Woo hoo!
This blog chronicles the adventures of a group of Canadians building a 1:12 scale medieval or Tudor dolls' house or dolls' castle. We're also working on a William and Mary era dollhouse circa 1700, featuring Jacobean, Carolean and Queen Anne furniture. Dollhouse aficionados, those who enjoy making or sharing doll house miniatures, and people who enjoy sharing crafts with children may enjoy the adventures of this group.
I built the background image of this site using some of the fabulous work from Vintage Retro Grunge. The "Green Man" reproduction medieval tile on the bottom right is by Kate Tiler. The other two, the griffon and the happy little creature (possibly a lion with a bagel?), are both by Pataki Tiles.
