New Arrival to The Tudor Manor

Hello everyone,

Hope you all had a great weekend and that you are well. A big welcome goes to the new followers of the blog too!

I have been adding a few more items to The Tudor Manor; my only vintage dolls house that I have, that goes way back 40 years. The Tudor Manor was built by the Founders of the Dolls House Emporium in 1979.

I have been collecting some vintage pieces for the 1930's style house that I will be sharing with you very soon, but I have quite the announcement to make. The Noble's have a new arrival to their family.  Welcome Baby Gloria!

Baby Gloria was more suitable for the Tudor Manor especially for her size and outfit. The cot looks more fuller now with a bigger baby and her clothing fits more for a 1930's period. 

I have gotten the little sweetheart from the Dolls House Netherland Show in Arnhem, The Netherlands  in March. 

Baby Gloria is a Heidi Ott doll with such a cute face. For some reason she reminds me so much of my own baby Leah. 

What makes this little doll more special is actually the amazing artist who made the whole outfit and booties. Marijke Van Vuuren a Dutch lady, with such a  sweet smile. A talented knitting artist that is beyond any expert. She was taught to knit by her grandmother at a very young age of four during WWII. Even during the difficult times, this artist made the best of it and now you can see it in her work. For some reason I can picture a little girl besides her granny, eager to learn the skill even in such dark times. 

In Arnhem, her stall was packed with tiny little knitted accessories such as tiny booties, tiny purses and bags, blankets, kitchen towels, pretty dresses, sweaters, hats and  whatever you can imagine. The lady totally left me speechless. I can't imagine the gauge of the knitting needles  that she uses to weave such magic. They must be the finest to make such tiny minis and not to mention that the knitted clothes, being a dress, a sweater and even trousers, they all fasten up like the real clothes.  Basically Baby Gloria's clothes can be changed without any difficulty. 

Baby Gloria had a matching twin. Posy had to choose between the two. It was a difficult decision but knowing that Posy is all about pink she chose the one with the pink dress. The other baby is as luck as Baby Gloria, for she has also found a loving home. 

Maybe in a few years,  I will get to meet Marijke Van Vuuren again. I have quite a list of miniature accessories to get from her.

Also don't forget the Give Away of the Folding Dolls House Book,  that will be closing on 13th April 2019. Go to this Link for the details to participate. 

This is all for today, keep tuned for the next updates.

Take Care and See You Soon.
