OK, so don't get all excited two posts in one week I know! So I thought I would show you how the town is progressing... or not!
Looking across the bottom of the town (room) Straight ahead is the Hotel, to the left Hospital (out of view) and two Apartment buildings eight apartments in total.
Along with all the other things I have a bit of a wallpaper fetish!!!!
Looking down on the left side of the room. Two houses on the left are in view directly in front is the hospital. On the right Shopping Mall on the lower two floors then it will be beach and park next floor up is the Airport and top floor will be more shops.
All waiting to move in
More lighting and ahmmm (dis) organized mess!!!
The Night club and restaurant will be on two floors.Below the club at the moment is a load of children's stuff but one day will be Darius's studio department.
Looking down on the right hand side of the room... to the left is the shopping mall etc and on the right apartments, night club, school and hotel. Across the back wall more apartments.
The same side but taken from the other end. You can just see my desk on the right and ahead will be more apartments and houses.
A TON of greenery
Some ladies are heading for Edwards Fashion Emporium
These are actually apartments but they are storing hospital stuff while the hospital is being built.
Looking down on the Mall
One day this will all be gone! Well, maybe not gone but spread around more and these will be two houses in the middle and apartments either side
OK, and now for something else....
The other day I showed you my very pink bar... well not so pink any more!
This will be a Beach Bar
And a delivery from Amber....
Beautiful table and chairs (with rug)
What's the pink thing?
Why a cot of course! No I'm not showing you it in detail or even telling you who it's for... you will just have to wait for The Priors (my doll story) to start up again.
To finish a few more pictures of the bar with a couple of patrons....
Fires can be an interesting addition in a doll room. Barbie, Sindy and Gloria have all made many a fire over the years...
This is a rather fun fireplace originally in red (nice change from PINK). This was one of my first experiments and I hand painted it an off white colour. I will one day give this a bit of an upgrade as I've learnt a lot over the years. Not sure what at the moment hence it still as is!
My dad is a model train enthusiast (OO scale) and I have over the years had a lot of help from him and also been to many a model railway show where I have picked up some interesting items that I can re-purpose. Below is one of those items a railway arch that I have painted (again a long time ago) and I need to add some grouting and maybe a wash?
Below is a Sindy fire , I came in the cream and I repainted it to black. This is one of my favourite fires as it lights up. Unfortunately the bulbs don't work and I need to find replacements. While these fires are easy enough to still find…
I have a little bit of a thing for 'babies' Barbie and co babies that is. I also love prams/buggies/strollers or whatever! For some time I had wanted a mini pram like you see so much in human size these days. Imagine my excitement when I spotted the new Skipper Babysitter Inc pram, it looked (almost) perfect. As soon as I spotted one on Amazon I had to get it AND it was not silly expensive. The pram's come in yellow with a white baby and pink with a black Baby.
(Not my photo's)
For some reason the pink pram is very hard to find in England, but I did find one on Amazon. The height was good too and worked well with the taller IT dolls. As you can see I painted mine
So next the painting thing The base parts come apart pretty easy but the top peace (bucket) can not be taken apart. I wanted to paint the top of the bucket but leave the base grey. All the parts I did NOT want painted I coated with a couple of coats of school PVA glue
