Lucky me still has fifteen days annual leave remaining for this year. So I shall be taking the odd day off here and there, work schedule permitting.
Today I have been on annual leave. And guess what I decided to do with my time? I decided to lay wooden effect kitchen flooring and hang traditional delft tile design wallpaper. Before you praise me for my D.I.Y. skills, let me explain it was for my Edwardian style dolls house.
Due to circumstances beyond my control, I do not have my own house any longer, but I do own a rather attractive dolls house which I am enjoying decorating and choosing furniture for. It's like being a mini interior designer, on a budget I can afford! I've always quite fancied being an interior designer, so this is second best from the real thing. And who knows, as I've mentioned on an earlier blog, it would be nice to think that one day there will be a mini female me to admire and cherish this dolls house.
This afternoon, while I was measuring wall paper samples, a nice man visited my mother about a new kitchen. She has gone one step further than me and has ordered a full scale kitchen, with hand painted cupboards. It looks very attractive and homely in the brochure, and should be here in 6- 8 weeks.
As I have been indoors today, I thought I would take pictures of 'our house' to share with everyone.
Pictures of the day:
Welcome to our house.
One of the motto's in our house.
Another house motto.
I wonder what this lot will make of the new kitchen?
I think she needs a break from the kitchen.
Hopefully the teddy's in the lounge won't object to a new kitchen.
