I carry on

Hi All
hope you had fun yesterday checking out the give a ways and the brilliant blogs, I did, so good luck if you entered the give a ways.

I worked on my chalet, I decided after placing some bits that I intend putting in the chalet, that the chalet was too small, so I am extending the walls, so that meant more painting and waiting for it to dry, so while I was waiting I started to make Father Christmas and Mrs Christmas their chairs, I have used Christmas designed material, I made a round base and a back from cardboard, added foam and covered, next time I make one of these I will remember to put on a tutorial, they are so easy.
I also finished off the fireplace,

I finished off a dresser (hutch) this was one that came free with the new dolls house magazine that has just come out again, first one only cost 99p so I got 2, my dad also got me 2, he thought I would not of seen it, it also came with a dinner service, so not bad for 99p, I will not be getting anymore of the magazine, unless there is another bit of furniture that I like, the next ones will cost a lot more, so the furniture will need to be worth it for me to buy it.

The weather here remains sunny and warm, I did mean to take some photo's of where myself, the beast and my son take my dogs for a walk, its so lovely, we walk along side the river, so today I promise I will take my camera.

lets look at what I did yesterday

I have removed all the doors, redone the shelves, painted it a pale green and distressed it, I will be putting items on it.

This is the fire, I had an old metal fire, which I repainted black, made a wooden surround, the red bits inside the fire are just cocktail sticks poainted red, I still need to put on some tiles

the chairs, feet still need to be added, and the green one needs its trim
