The Toll House makes it on print on DHMS

Hello everyone,

How are you all? Hope you having a great week. Finally it is officially Summer and yes it is getting hotter. We are getting a few rain showers that we have missed during the winter but nothing big. I am so looking forward for the children's summer break. I love it when they are home. 

Before I started I wanted to welcome a new follower to my blog. Welcome Anita Van dam Louw.  I am also pleased to say that My Miniature World Group on Face Book has reached over 800 members. Thank you so much everyone for joining in. 

I have another big announcement to make. I am proud to say that My Miniature World will be having it's own premises...... Yes it is official! Finally all my dolls houses will be exhibited for the public. So this summer I will be extremely busy making the premises more suitable for all my work.. If I am lucky it will be all done before Christmas! I will keep you updated with the progress of it all.

Also I would like to announce our Winner of the Free Give away. The Miniature Book called Happy Birthday to you by Dr. Seuss goes to Elizabeth MacCullum Stillion. Please send me a private message Elizabeth with your postal details so I can post it over to you.

Like I promised, Here is the article about the Renovation on my Toll House on The Dolls House and Miniature Scene on June's issue.

It gives me great joy to see how this project has started and finally how it turned out to be. It was my first experiment into renovating a dolls house. It was a hard decision but definitely worth it. 

Article on the DHMS

For those who are interested to read it  here is the Article The Toll House Before and After. Sometimes it is good to look at the past projects and look at past photos. When I look at the pictures of how I first built it, I end up asking myself "What on earth was I thinking????" but then again I didn't know any better. 

Here are some pictures of how it was. It wasn't bad and I actually liked it at that time.

But like I always say; time, practice and experience are the keys to perfection. Trial and error are always a benefit to the hobby. Today I am not afraid to make renovations. In fact I am working on my Summer House Sea Shells at the moment. I have to admit though that there will be no extreme renovations like I had made the Toll House.

Here are are a few pictures of the Toll House now. I never tire looking at it..

This is all for today. Hopefully on Saturday, I can share with you some progress on the renovations of Sea Shells so keep tuned for the next post.

Take Care and see you real soon.
