A Dolls House for my grand daughter Joana. She is now 7 years old and we live far from each other - about 300km between us. I think she is in a good age to get the "virus" of miniatures.
Two years ago I started collecting a dolls house. A weekly publication from Planeta de Agostinni - "Casa de Praia" (What means Beach House). The collection finished last December.
Since last two months I've been building and decorating it. All the miniatures inside belong to the collection and were sold with an instalment (fascicule). Of course I added a few details. Nothing special, only to compose the scenes here and there or to substitute some pieces I didn't like.
It was the first time I did such a work and I was very curious to know the sensation. It's funny!
Not so easy to build, (some parts of the structure had not the exact cut) but now it's almost ready. Only the curtains are missing. (The ones of the collection are really bad!!!) I'll try to change them a little, and next week, I hope, it's finished.
The front pannel is too big and heavy and for openning without problems I have to reinforce the hinges. And that's all.
I need to start preparing my next show. Definitivly building dolls houses is not my favourite hobby! Within two years we'll speak about it again because I already started another collection from the same editor - The rustic house. It's for my other grand daughter Sofia. She is now 5 years old and is Joana's sister.
