Happy New Year!

Finished wiring the Christmas dollshouse today, for (belated) delivery tomorrow. There was too much snow to deliver my Christmas presents. The photo above shows the living room lit only by its own lights.

The framed "God Jul cross stitch" is a photo of one I designed about 15 years ago.

Happy New Year to you too!

Your dollhouse really passes the photo test doesn't it? Everything perfectly to scale! Is it a full house?

Thanks for the compliment re scale - something I'm picky about. Even the scale of the artificial 'pine needles' on the tree was bugging me (decided there was no way it would pass for a real tree, hence the 'artificial tree' box underneath).

Yes, it is a full house, but only a rather cramped 3 room cottage. No bathroom, but the house that inspired it didn't have one either - loo in the barn and a sauna hut. Next year I'll fix up an outside loo to go on the kitchen side of the house (needs a stovepipe chimney there too, plus a mini woodpile).
