The Study in The Traditional Dolls House

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all had a great weekend. Here in Malta it's getting really hot, temperatures reaching the 40 degrees Celsius. Thank goodness the kids are off from school. Although it is hot, I wouldn't want it any different. 

This weekend my little Leah and I continued working on The Traditional Dolls House. As she is off on her summer break she tends to follow me wherever I go and by that she enjoys spending her time among the dolls houses. I love her company and the fact that I am doing work on my projects, she enjoys working on her own dolls house. 

For the past few days we have completed the study within the Traditional Dolls House. 

I have to say I think my little Leah enjoys this particular little room. I am constantly seeing her peeking into the Study or as Leah calls it "My Room!" Indeed it is her room because there is quite a lot of her own touches and things that she likes. 

One of the things that makes this more of 'Leah's Style' is the lovely collection of miniature animals that she has. I am sure in the long run there will be more of these tiny cute ceramic animals. I have to say I like the way she has displayed them. The girl loves animals.

Another Leah's touch is the vacuum cleaner. The girl demanded to have a vacuum cleaner just like mummy's. When she was a couple of years younger, while I vacuumed the carpets and she would be around, I would vacuum her home slippers while they were on her feet. I remember she used to laugh a lot when I did that to her. So here is Mr. Hatty to happens to be yellow just like my own vacuum cleaner. Mr. Hatty tends to move all over The Traditional dolls house now and then when Leah is around. 

Saturday morning, Leah came with me to My Miniature World very early and she wanted to take a tour around my own dolls houses. I don't mind it at all. So just like all the tours that we have she started with J.R. Art Gallery. She loved going through the paintings and asked questions about them. Finally she asked me a specific question "Can we have some paintings in my dolls house?" 

Obviously without thinking twice, I agreed. After all, the Traditional Dolls House still needed frames for the walls. I asked her to see if there was anything from the gallery that she wanted. The good girl as she is went through the framed paintings. I knew that this was going to be hard for her to choose from. Besides J.R. Art Gallery didn't hold any paintings that a six year old would go for. 

After a few minutes I heard her exclaim with excitement that she found one. I went back to her again to see what she liked from the gallery. To my surprise she wasn't looking at the gallery but the artist's private quarters. For a second I thought she would go for the 'Unfinished Ballerina' but then I saw her tiny finger pointing at the top of the artist bed and there was the 'Blue Angel' by Marc Chagall. 

Both of us headed to my computer and we googled Marc Chagall and more paintings by the artist popped up. Leah loved them all and she picked a few of her favorite including the Blue Angel. We got to down size a few and printed them to fit the miniature frames.

I showed Leah how to cut and frame the pictures and with a little help she managed to frame seven printed pictures for her dolls house. 

I think she did a great job. And as she calls it, 'The Unicorn!' was placed it in the Study on top of the desk. 

As most kids now a days, Leah loves pretty much computers and music and so these had to be a must in her dolls house. The nice thing about it that on the computer screen Leah still wanted to keep the blog page of Posy called 'Posy the Tiny Bear' I asked if she wanted to change it but she wanted to keep Posy there. After all Leah is another fan of the little bear.

There will definitively be more additions to the room and The Traditional Dolls House is far from ready. I want Leah to take her time to do the house and learn to appreciate it more. I know she loves it very much and that is fine with me. 

Little Leah at work
 This is all for today, I hope you have enjoyed the new update on The Traditional Dolls House. There will be more updates on the house in time so make sure to keep a look out for Leah's progress. In the mean time keep tuned for more updates from me. 

Take Care and See You Soon.
