Being a new month, I received my next Miss Lydia Pickett 1/2 inch scale dollshouse kit from Judith of 'In Some Small Way'. This month it was two small kits: a bench and two stacking boxes, and a cat bed/dog bed combo. I don't want a cat/dog bed in my 1/2 inch scale scene (call me crazy) and this is the drawback of being in a club because you get stuff you would not necessarily have ordered yourself. However, I decided to make a virtue of it and I turned the cat bed into a breakfast tray by leaving off the front side and gluing the cushion fabric onto the 'tray' surface, and the printie that would have gone onto the front side was glued onto the rear of the tray. I took the dog bed and added some legs, and again glued the cushion fabric onto the flat surface, to create a little writing desk. The legs look slightly unrealistic but my plan is to hide it in a corner of the room where you can't see the legs too well.
We're actually away camping this weekend at a campsite about 8 miles from our house, but it is pouring with rain (as usual when we go camping) so we've come home for the afternoon which has given me a chance to blog! Best wishes all, I love reading your comments.
