Have had a big tidy up of my little workroom ready for me to start work again. Diagon Alley shops are all lined up but I have had to move my witch's house into the corner as I am having the decorators' in very soon.
Look at this tidy table!! Just waiting for me to mess up!
My wonderful daylight lamp is a godsend once the grey damp days and evenings start rolling in.
I have three children who started leaving for gap years and university five years ago now and once this movement away from home began the house entered a state of limbo. They have left home.....but not really. They want their bedrooms......but are only at home ten weeks a year. They wouldn't dream of throwing anything away.......but can't fit all their stuff into their student room. In the meantime my collection of dolls houses has grown and I have all this unused space!!
This Summer my eldest son graduated and at the ripe old age of 24 has moved into London to embark on a two year graduate scheme and will be bringing home his first pay packets!! So bedroom 4 was up for grabs. I'd like to say I shed tears and spent the day sitting in his room looking through baby photos........but I am a very bad liar!! I was in Home base before he had unpacked his first suitcase buying these great half price metal shelving units which provide a perfect place for my first projects.
The chest of drawers provides another shelf and lots of drawers for my over-flowing stash of materials and Diagon Alley miniatures. In the corner you can see a DVD unit that I have used to store most of my doll collection. I decided they really should see the light of day and be enjoyed.
There is also a huge wall to wall range of cupboards in this room but it still seems to be full of No.1 son's clothes, sports gear and shoes!! Ah well, one day I will be able to put it all in the loft. Oh no wait.....the loft is full of the 1001 cuddly toys, beanie babies and barbies they could not possibly throw away!!!!
