I haven't always loved dollhouses but when I saw this one out on my neighbor's patio getting rained on, something had to be done! :0) She wasn't sure about actually giving it to me so I said I would take care of it for her for awhile. It's been a year and half so I should call her and see if we can keep it for good. The girls and I would like to take off the old wallpaper, and put up some Victorian prints. Also do something more permanent with the carpet. We made all of the curtains and bedspreads. The pictures are cut out from magazines and framed with lace or ribbon.
So, let me introduce you to the Kent family.
As you can see, they live in a lovely three story home. Every inch of space is put to good use!
Here we see Edward and Lillian spending some time in the livingroom. The children all take lessons on the grand piano. It seems that Elsie, one of the twins is having trouble settling down for the night.
Mrs. Kent loves to sit at her desk and write letters. She has lots of family that live in the next state over. She likes to keep them updated on how the children are doing.
Let's head over to the diningroom. The dinner dishes have been washed and put back on the table. Mrs. Kent enjoys a nice cup of tea, as do all Victorian ladies! :0) She has a lovely teaset with pink roses and gold trim.
Oh, what do we have here? Little Thomas is not in his bed! He has lots of fun things to do in his room. He enjoys a good game of checkers and flying his kite. When he isn't looking, his twin sisters like to get into his train set. He is a good brother though and always shares with them!
Clara is not a night owl like her brother, she is sound asleep. So is little Emma. In the morning, they will have lots of fun playing together on their rocking horse!
Let's head down to the first floor now and take a peek into the bathroom. Mrs. Kent has decorated it with her two favorite colors, pink and yellow.
Here is the master bedroom. It was a good idea that Mr. Kent put a cradle downstairs. It looks like Elsie will be using it tonight. I think she has a tooth coming in, poor little thing!
The last room on our tour is the kitchen. Such a fun room to be in. There is always something bubbling away on the stove and look at those delicious pastries for tomorrow's breakfast!!
Uh-oh, it looks like the family kitty needs to wake up from her nap! I certainly hope the plum pudding is covered!!
Thank you for visiting and come again soon!
