Well at last somethings happening with the kitchen.I received the stool,steps,bin and diner set in the mail,just love how they go,but i dont think the stools will fit in here as i bought a whole white american style kitchen from ebay. The kind with appliances and the cupboards up the top,all white with black countertops and a black stove,all for the princely sum of.....$20.51,wweeee i was rapt winning that auction,and will probably put some on the red/white tiles on the splashbacks. The flooring in the kitchen pics is a card of a sample paint from years ago.I took it into Bunnings and its not made anymore,drat,so i will either use the 1 sheet and put the furniture around it,or use the shiny sample cards of another paint i picked up while there,took a few cards to fill in the floor. While not on kitchen but bunnings hardware,i also found some packs of glass tiles,meant for mosaics,bought a pack of mirrors,and some black tiles to make a sink and shower unit,only $6.99 a pack,and 1 dollhouse mirror can cost that. Just everyday painting,some of the parts are getting mould,as its humid but nonstop rain and showers,so getting the undercoat on fast as i can.

Etsy credenza.

This came in the mail yesterday and i am so glad i bought it,it looks great in the house,and is so well made.The doors slide across and its legs are perfect and tiny. I found it on etsy at mini'sX2,at first i thought it was a double one because of the picture of a reflection,then i thought i had paid too much for 1 little thing,now i think its amazing,although i tend to call it a sideboard,not a credenza,anyway its fab.

Spotlight is a chain shop in australia and new zealand,it sells materials,beads,craft and sewing stuff,and is brilliant to have in a medium size country town. The green tinge on the material pics are the top i had on when taking the photos.
I bought 2 scrapbooking sheets there,and two remnants of material,half price,one $3 one $4 ,not sure what to do with any of it but it all jumped out at me,so i bought it,as you do,and i only went in for a paintbrush!!!


Wow went from no-one knowing about the blog,to 1 follower,thanks Susan,to 6,then overnight 16!gee i only have 3 and none on my beading and knitting blogs,thanks everyone,i need the boost right now. Another find,a modern table,modern alright it's fantastic,came in a nice box saying concord mini's,with a label made in taiwan,about $8 i think and looks sleek and cool.

lotus lamps

While on ebay,and in china lol,i came across these described as dollhouse lamps.No sizes.I adore lotus anything but they would only post free to USA,didnt post to any other countries. I emailed her anyway,she said it would be really expensive to post 2 to oz,so asked how much. The lamps were $6.99 US each,so when she got back to me with the huge sum of.......$8.24 i said yes,about $21 for the 2 haha laughing. Ah but she said dollhouse not 1/12th scale lol,way to big to be bedside lamps,ceiling light probably,still glad i got them,i love bargains and bargain hunting.


Found these on ebay and had to nab them for $14 a pair and free postage from china.They arent black,up close they are a dark red colour,not sure where they will go but will look good and arty when they do.

So, looks like a red kitchen!

Browsing on ebay,as you do lol,i typed in red miniatures while waiting for paint to dry,ooohhh baby i hit the motherload on retro! The diner set is an artisan piece ,wweeeee,love the aussie dollar,the stools and bin and chair all go together. I just blew my monthly mini budget,who am i kidding budget with mini's!am thrilled to bits. Not a lot happening on the house,painting,painting ,undercoat for MDF,then white gloss,pink gloss,havent got off the first floor yet,but so many parts are painted and ready to go. Went to a shop in town called jaycar,you can solar light youre house with a small solar panel,and battery,that click off to be put outside in the sun to charge.Will go further on that later. Looks like my ocupants are a couple,trendy,like deco,retro and bright colours,modern streamlined uncluttered house,oh how i wish i could move in when its done,all by myself. So heres the latest buys,used to make all the bits myself,but not this time this a display of my buying,my taste,and fun!!!
