The garden

So far we have had a lovely warm summer. I have not played / worked with my dollhouse at all because we've spent a lot of time outdoors, which is lovely after a cold winter. We have planted a lot of new plants, it starts to look good. Here are some picture, some of the flowers in the garden are old and some are new:

From Brasil to Norway

Today I got a beautiful gift from my friend Eliana! What a great surprise! Two beautiful orchids in gorgeous black pots. Eliana has given them to me thinking that they could fit in the bathroom in the M house and they fit perfectly! Also the size of the flower pots fit on the shelves in the bathroom and the colors are perfect, Eliana knows what she's doing! If you do not know Eliana take a look at her blog Terra dos Gigantes and discover all the wonderful things she makes.
Believe it or not, I had when the bathroom was finished, thought about that it would be nice with a plant on each side of the shower opening/door :) I don`t know where to buy such beautiful flowers so you can understand how happy I`m with the gift.
A while back Eliana sent me a beautiful pink orchid, but unfortunately when it arrived it was in "thousand pieces" and she is such a nice person wanted to give me a new - I got two :)
Thank you soooooo much Eliana!!!

I also got chocolate, Yes!!!!!

The art is from a card I got from Eliana a while ago, I will always be thinking of Eliana and Maru when I look into my bathroom. The table and mirror (used to be gold colored) are from Maru.

A dollhouse from 1920

We were out on the road today, stopped in a small town and discovered this old house from 1920. Do not know what scale it is. The owner think maybe it is originally a dollhouse from Sweden, taking into consideration the style of the house. And the style is wonderful, hope you can see the porches in front. I didn`t bring my camera, only my phone.

At the top you can see the sign with 1920

The owner want to sell the house, he has no room for it anymore because it is a quite large house. If you are interested, contact him at: post@skinnfellmakern.no His name is Runar Foss Larsen and he seemed to be a very nice man.

Notice the window frames, they are beautiful.

Two big doors at the back, I think that is the only way to get into the house

It was a great experience to see this old house, really fun
Here's the owner, he print pattern on sheepskin , it is an old tradition. He use hand-carved printing blocks.

Here is a sheepskin he is working on, and also see the beautiful one left on the picture. You can see more at Skinnfellmakern
