I have made quite a bit of progress on the retreat in the past week and now I'm onto the really fun bit - making the building look cosy and lived in. It's all fun of course, but I do enjoy the search for all those little bits and pieces of accessories and soft furnishing that make a miniature home come to life. So, here's the latest guided tour ...
The back door has a lock and handle, and there's a new set of shelves above the sink. Can you just see the cat's food bowl down beside the dresser too?
I added a washstand upstairs and, of course, made some suitcases in pink and cream leather as additional storage - and a pair of fluffy slippers in pink. I'm not sure those particular toiletries will stay. I have some which are much prettier to add instead I think.
There's a new chest of drawers (minus handles) beside the bed and a wicker chest together with a shabby little bird cage. That sharp angle on the roof is a little tricky to fill but I'm getting there. Do you like the sun hat hanging on the end of the bed? That may eventually go outside on the deck but just for now it's safer hanging there.
