This is what the house used to look like.

It's been quite a few years since I updated my blog. Sorry, life got in the way! I didn't stop making and being passionate about miniatures so I have achieved a considerable amount. I'll try and publish them gradually in case anyone is interested lol. Most recently I have redecorated the entire exterior of my Georgian house and I must say I love it now! After years of not really liking it I bit the bullet and started repainting it. 4 weeks later and after 6 coats of paint on each of the horrible dark green windows and a new exterior colour this is the result.

Frontage of the Umbrella Shop. Totally made from scratch - could not source ready made windows or doors as I wanted them accurate replicas. Have to make full-length glass fronted display cabinets for all 3 internal walls next. The fun part will be to make all the different umbrellas, parasols and walking sticks for the cabinets.
Thought it was about time I updated my blog with what I've been doing the last couple of months. I've been having a break from my Georgian House and a replica of The Old Umbrella Shop, a Victorian Umbrella-makers shop as I became interested in doing a Dutch Baby House Cabinet after several friends started one. Mine was a raw cabinet from Silly Sisters and so far I have done the outside in cream with decals and gold touches and painted the inside white, ready for the wall and floor papers. Next will be the 144th furniture kits which I know will be a real challenge!
