Antique Dollhouse

Bought myself a very old house, 100 years of age, so it makes it antique. It was love at first sight. I did have a long and hard talk with myself that this was the last thing I needed right now, but it didn't help! It just cried out for me. Don't you just love it too? I think it has tons of charm, and I have decided that it will be my showroom house. I painted it white inside, and to begin with I think that's a nice canvas. I will do some work on the outside also but not too much so I ruin the look. Also maybe I could tempt you with some crème brulee. Looks like it's just enough for six...



To the house: "I will take care of you". Played with for a 100 years, that is something. Maybe I will fix the windows and put up some shutters...


The inside. It is really deep, about 65 cm.


I love this stair. Old by itself. Need another coat of white paint on the wall...


Some furntitures on display.


Perfect desert all year round if you ask me..

Åh det er jo kjempenydeligt. Er enig,må ikke gjøre for mye, slik at sjarmen med det forsvinner. Også den trappen da *sukk*
Jeg stopper gjerne innom for litt crème brulee, beste desserten som finnes
Kos deg videre :)

Preciosa, es una antiguedad, tienes razón, dejando que se vea que es antigua, es una joya.
