I love this little model BUT (and boy, do I sound like my 8 year old self here) the inside isn't that well thought out. Your grand front door opens into a wall, the staircase cuts across a window and most annoying of all... the only balcony access, the french window, walks straight into mid air and a one storey drop. I mean that could kill you surely? Needless to say alterations have been made to cheat more space, the staircase to the attic has been swung round and a new floor added to stop any french window mishaps... in cardboard, just like my 8 year old self would have approached it.
Of course, my 8 year old self decided to house a bunch of cute hairy caterpillars in her swish new chalet style wooden dollhouse (whatever happened to that???) and filled it up with grass and flowers for them to munch on. I never told the tall people about my little house guests, who proceeded to turn into moths and ate my bedroom curtains, causing a unilateral ban on livestock in the bedroom. Which was a shame as my new tenants, the snails, were just settling in nicely. I think I'll stick to dolls as occupiers for this one :o)
Alice will be finished today, so saving the sneak peek for tomorrow.
