But it is lovely and cosy inside Hollyhock Cottage now that we have 2 working fireplaces. (That is if you ignore the total absence of an entire front wall and half a roof)
To make this a quick post because I won't get to it otherwise, I finally have something I can show off after having been pottering for ages on lots of bits that lead nowhere.
This fire is in the sitting room and has borrowed from another favourite author - LM Montgomery from her 'Anne' series with a set of green spotted Staffordshire dogs "
The bedroom fire is a bit less exciting being lit only by an orange led for a warm glow but it is cosy and still a thrill
All the bits, apart from those mentioned and the sitting room andirons which I bought last year on offer from my beloved Dolls House Emporium (and also on offer this month for 85p!), were made by myself from what I had to hand - cardboard, twigs etc. I enjoyed the challenge of seeing what I could make do with. Next post will be the floor which follows the same recycling theme:
Use it up, wear it out, make do or do without!
Welcome to all my new and invisible followers. One day we will catch up.
Must go - work has bellowed for my presence and this computer is possibly breathing it's last few gasps.
