A few friends have totally embraced the whole dolls house adventure I am currently on and they come up with ideas for the storylines, others are freaked out by it all….tee hee
One of the former came back from lunchbreak to say she had seen some little doll house bits and bobs in the shop Tiger. I went there as soon as possible and this little cutlery set was purchased, along with a gardening set and some copper saucepans. All for a very good price!
So the cutlery set has been the first to feature in a story for the Littletons (that’s the name of the family who reside in the dolls house). The story I used to bring in the cutlery set was that Mr Littleton and his young daughter Victoria had visited Hever Castle in Kent (UK) and met Mr Astor who lived there and who renovated the castle greatly.
After they had enjoyed a lovely day, I said that they returned home with a lovely big gift! When they open the box it’s the cutlery! Generous chap Mr Astor …
So here’s what I did with the cutlery purchased from Tiger:-
It came in a plain little wooden tray with 6 compartments, so with a strong craft knife I cut it in half so I just had three trays.
I coloured the inside red to look fancy! and the rest black and gold.
Then I used the plastic cover it came with (I hope it looks like glass at 1/12th scale and in black and white) again I cut in half and used a little clear tape as a hinge.
I added a blob of gel all around the edge and attached a little brass fastener to make a little opener and voila that’s it. Mrs Littleton loves it very much.
Thanks for looking
Back soon, Rosie
