I thought that it was way past time to create my own blog. This is no easy task, considering that i am a definite technophobic!!!

My children (and theirs) introduced me to the wonderful world of the internet and all that comes with it!! First google, then ebay, internet groups and blogs!! I have met so many wonderful, charming people that i now call friend. Please bear with me while i blunder and bluff my way through this, until i find my way. Which is how i have survived most of the daunting situations that i have landed myself in!!!

On a grey day...

Today its raining! Its cold and very wet.. i had planned to gather up all of the patchwork quilts, that i've made over the years, take them outside.. hang them on the clothesline, and photograph them in the sunshine!!! Not going to happen! The weather has had more of a say in this, than i have.
So i will show you my little grey house with the red roof. I bought it a little while back at a local antique shop. The proprietor of the shop had
no details as he'd bought it at auction and there are no markings or dates on it... I have seen another one, the same (different colour)that sold on australian ebay, since i bought mine. I am thinking that it is commercially made as opposed to home made or kit. I also think that it would be dated around 1930's. For no other reason than a gut feeling, so if anyone has any information on these little houses, please let me know! I was very lucky to find all the pastel furniture inside. I was quite tickled about this as its very sweet. I'm not sure whether to do much to it.. I'll probably just make bedding and add some vintage china and some old mats for the floor. It's important to me not play around too much as its condition is original and very good, except, for some spilt silver frost on the stairs and bottom floor.I'll pick it off with a scalpel, when time permits!
