Hello everyone Wow 290 followers welcome all : )  I had a lovely weekend  it was Saint Patrick's Day on Saturday I believe its a day when nearly everyone is a little Irish lol. We had a parade in the town and a lot of drinking getting done : D not by me i hasten to add hehe. Sunday was Mothers Day here and i spent a lovely day with my children we ALL went out for a meal when i say all i mean 4 generations of us lol There was my Mom and Dad ( 82 and 85 ) My sisters and I and all our children and grandchildren a great day was had by all :)
Now for the promised pictures.  This time the bathroom again a lot of the things were made or changed by me also gifts i received.

The clothes basket is half a hair curler. I made the little table for holding towels. I even made the slippers lol  The little soap holder is made with a button and a flower bead. I still have a little more to do to it. I need a small mirror for over the sink and maybe a few pictures and stuff  but i am happy with it. This room was difficult to do as I found it too big for a bathroom untill i got the idea to divide it and put a small storage room.
These are pictures of the storage room again there is room for a few more bits and pieces. I am sure that like in my RL it wont take long to fill it lol.

Its still rather clean and tidy but give it a bit of time and i am sure it will be nice and dusty hehe. Though maybe my lady that lives here likes to keep her whole house tidy : D. I dont have a doll to live here yet but i do know that she is a retired school teacher who was left this cottage by an aunt. She has only moved into it since she retired less than a year ago so she has some new things and some old pieces that came with the cottage. She really loves her new home and is making it as comfortable as she can. She has lots of  nieces and nephews that come visit but she herself never married. Doesnt mean she wasnt asked ; ) but that's another story :)
Gosh i hope i have not rambled on too long : D
Have a great week everyone Hugs to all my friends.

You have done a very good job. The bathroom looks lived in. I love the minis you prepared for it. I also like the store room with big suitcase. Wonderful work.

You have done a great job, Maria!! It is like Elga said: it looks like there was somebody who used the bathroom ;) (I hope my English is correct)

Ciao Maria, sai, io e mio marito siamo due grandi fan dell'Irlanda, anche se non ci siamo mai stati, il nostro sogno è una vacanza nella tua terra, chissà, magari un giorno ci riusciremo e magari potrò conoscerti e vedere dal vivo la tua bella casetta 1:12! Un abbraccio!

I love the history of who lives there. LOL! The bathroom is so cute with that wallpaper. I love the idea of the junk room. Maybe you can stick a mouse in there too. :) Love your cottage!

What a nice weekend you must have had all together... ;O) Your bathroom is so nice, so many lovely details - and I wish I had such a storage room in real life (Could even be bigger for me... LOL). And the story behind the cottage brings it even more to life... please tell and show us more!

Irene said...

Nice work on your bathroom - there are lots of interesting things to see and it's a good idea to make the space smaller (I've done that too). It gives you another room to play with!
