So, this weekend I plan to:
Firstly, wallpaper one of the rooms in The Laurels. I've only wallpapered the nursery so far as I have got side-tracked with other projects. I have been prompted to do this via a challenge by one of the members on the Dolls Houses Past and Present site to pick something that you need to complete with regard to your miniatures, state it on the website and complete it this weekend. Thanks for the prompt.
Secondly, I want to have a play with fimo. I ran out of time to do that last weekend so that is on this weekend's to do list.
My third 'to do' is just to get better organised. I want to work out a method of keeping a record of my projects, things I buy, ideas etc.
Finally, I want to look at how to link different posts on my blog so, for example, if you want to just look at my blog entries on The Laurels or The Selina Rose Gallery you can just click on a link that will bring up all those entries.
Anyway that is my plan for this weekend. I'll let you know how I get on.
With regard to The Selina Rose Gallery, I've come across a slight snag (or perhaps I should say a sticky situation)! I decided to tear off the old electrical tape on the dolls house but it has left a sticky residue that I can't seem to remove. I have tried all sorts. I may resort to getting some brick paper or something and just go over it. Because this has meant I haven't been able to complete painting the exterior yet, it also means I don't want to install the papers and floors in the house. I'm a bit frustrated with it so I will give the gallery a miss this weekend and see what I can sort out during the week to get rid of the sticky residue. Sorry Sis.
I've just picked up an interesting item on the New Zealand online auction site, TradeMe. It is a pudding doll. Apparently in the late 1800s these were baked into cakes and puddings on special occasions. It was believed if you found one of these in your pudding it would bring you good luck (or a broken tooth). It is only 1 inch long. Very cute. It now resides in The Laurels.

I hope you all have a great weekend doing what you love.
