Starting work in the parlour

by | Jan 9, 2024

The next room in the dollhouse I started to work on is the parlour. Stage 1 involved laying wall paper and floors with craft sticks, and also building a large fireplace. I made the fireplace from wood and card stock, using Jane’s Harrop’s Edwardian Era: Miniatures in 1:12 Scale as a guide.

It’s been most my challenging task yet! I share vignettes of this stage in my vlog. You can watch it below.

I’m curious, Wonder Weavers, have you done a project from Jane Harrop’s Edwardian Era: Miniatures in 1:12 Scale? And if so, what did you think? Was the project fun and easy to read?

And if you haven’t read the book, Paperback and kindle versions of the book are¬†available from Amazon.
