Belated Merry Christmas to All

Hi Everyone,

What is happening to this year? Too late to worry really I suppose but wow!!

Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.

I thought I would quickly pop on to have a quick catch up on what is going on in blog land and show everyone the new shelving I have for my pet shop.

I will show more photos once I have the shelves in place with some stock on them. 

Of course, the next steps then will be returning to the dolls house shop to pick up more shelving and then start working on straightening the upstairs.  It is a tough job but someone has to do it.

Finally, I apologise for my absence, I have needed to take on a second part time job and I have been struggling to adjust to the new times etc.  Unfortunately, this job was only temporary over Christmas and is shortly coming to an end.  On the plus side, at least this means I will have more time for my minis again.

Next Project

This is a picture of my next project

It is a 24th scale basic bedroom.  It has been on my list to do for quite a while but I keep putting it off.

To be honest, other than dressing the bed, I am not sure what I am going to do with the rest of the furniture.  I know that I am not happy with the colour of the wood but I dont know whether they will look better once they are dressed and in place.  Unfortunately, I think the main problem is that the set seems a little fancy for the room.  After all, the cottage is supposed to be a simple place.

That said, I do already have this exact bedroom in place untouched and undressed, so if any changes dont work, I wont have lost anything.

Ah well, time to stop procrastinating and on to the research I think.

Every girl loves shoes...

I saw some BJD shoes on Amazon for an amazing price and just had to get them.  I have to admit, to being a little concerned about the quality, after all, they were only £4  (approx) for the 1/6 scale pair and £5 (approx) for the 1/4 scale pair.

Well, they arrived today and I am so pleased with them. Unfortunately, there is no label on the packaging that gives the makers name, but the seller on Amazon I bought them from is 'Highly One'.

The first pair is the 1/6th size.  As you will see, they are really cute.

I just couldnt resist.  If there is one draw back it would be that at the moment they look a bit clumpy on my hujoo girl.  

That said, I havent finished her outfit yet so, I am not going to show her wearing them yet.  I think they will look better once she is in her dress and socks as well.  She is definitely going to be a girly girl.

The final pair are more rugged.  They are for my Resin Soul Rong.

The flash doesnt show the colour properly, they are in reality a lot darker but, the detail didnt show very well otherwise,  They are so well made, very strong, and I love the details along the with buckle and strap.

When the boots arrived, the strap was inside the boot and is put on and fastened once it has been put on.

Now I cant wait till I have a little more money so I can order some more shoes... perhaps I may even need to purchase I new doll to go with the new shoes? haha.

Well, I had better go again for now, I am hoping to have a quick read of a few blogs before bedtime, I have a busy work week ahead of me.
