I got the latest Expedit shelf from Ikea that I like so much. I decided it would be great for storage in our son's room, as toys and books started to take on a life of their own, multiplying like rabbits. Unfortunately Ikea were all out the red drawers that fits the shelf so nicely, so I will have to go back for those at some point. The shelf was really easy to assemble, by the way. Although I was a bit taken aback when I opened the boxes and found the little bag of screws and counted 76 wooden pegs...
When I put the dollhouse on top of the shelf, I thought it was quite interesting how the shelf compartments resemble the room compartments in a dollhouse. If you're looking at this thinking it's a bit too high up to be played with for my boy, you are right. It's MY dollhouse, you see, and as long as I can reach, selfish, childish Mum is happy. (To be honest, he's not that into it anyway. Cars are more his thing.)
The first sewing project to come out of my new workshop is this banner of flags (what IS the proper name for it?). The framed illustrations hanging on the walls are two etsy finds, one by Mrs Eliot books and the other one by Dee Beale.
