Thanks for Blogger help!

Thanks Gill and Karin for the advice. After some fiddling, my husband managed to get rid of the box. Maybe I will just leave the design as is for a little while!

On a mini note, I think I've reached the conclusion that it's easier to just toss all my half scale ideas into the bin and just go with quarter scale. I am just so over trying to find half scale furniture and accessories, and there is so much available in quarter scale. I just like how you can still get a good level of detail into half scale without it being too fiddly but it's so much smaller than one inch scale. I think I will need to get really creative and less lazy and design some furniture kits and get someone to manufacture them for me.

Anyway, have a great week everyone.

Need Blogger advice please!!

As you can see, I've finally updated by blog a little but not sure I'll keep it like this. Contemplating prettying it up a bit. But in the meantime, I am hoping someone with more Blogger expertise can tell me how to get rid of the 'this picture or video has been removed' picture. I've tried deleting the background and all, but obviously that didn't work. And I googled for an answer but came up with nothing. Thanks guys!

Kensington Dollshouse Festival

Well, I am a little late in posting this. But being back at work really takes up time! The festival was great. I didn't get any photos, but here is what I bought!

Some tiny perfume bottles from Gerd Felka. My husband and I wondered if the stoppers came out but I was too afraid to try. As it turns out, the do come out!

A needle case with opening lid, a thimble and a baby rattle, all turned from timber. It is mind-boggling that someone can do this.

Some ceramic vases in 1" and 1/2" scales from Poteries Miniatures (Elisabeth Causeret).

A very cute little teddy from Ankinaki A. So so cute and so hard to decide from her gorgeous selection.

A little dollhouse and duck pulling a cart from Veronique Lux. I have wanted Veronique's stuff (all of it!!) for so long, so it was great to finally get some pieces.

There was lots of great stuff. I could've come home with tonnes of stuff, but didn't have that much money. Plus, I did have one big splurge, for my French chateau I will build one day, but will save that for another day. I am awaiting some more pieces that goes with it, so will show you when they arrive!
