(You can find her miniatures for sale at http://www.etsy.com/shop/GypsyBoudoirMinis).
Thank you Annie for the lovely gifts... I so wish my Victorian house was finished so that I could show them in it. As you can see from my second photo, it is far from finished. You might be wondering why is it partially painted? Well, from reading other peoples blogs, many people have suggested to paint the wood before you wallpaper so that it adheres better. This was going to be my approach but after reading about other bloggers use of illustration board I might try that first.
On another note I have a question for people with knowledge of miniature shops in the UK and France. My Mum is going to be visiting the UK and France in the next few months and has been wanting for me to find out what shops she could visit in order to bring me back something for the dollhouse. I have mentioned to her before about the great things I find online followed by my disappointment that the seller does not post to Australia (or charges the equivalent of 3 times the item cost to post it). Does anyone have any suggestions for me? I particularly want Victorian themed things.
Thanks to everyone for the positive comments about the Phoenix range. It's in the shed having it's second coat of paint. My boyfriend has been painting up a storm in there! I must be becoming a predictable miniaturist though as his last thing he said to me when I was heading out to the shed was..."If your going in there your not to touch it!" How did he know that I wasn't just going outside to get the clothes out of the dryer?..he he
Have a great day. IndyPoppy
