Marian Chisholm's lovely miniature paintings in my dollhouse bedroom.

This was a real Cadbury's chocolate - I had to take a photo of it in my dollhouse, before I ate it!! It was almost cute enough to keep it unopened, but I just couldn't do it.. The chocolate had to be eaten.. LOL

Awww.. isn't it just like a box of Cadbury's chocolates.. By the way, this is the last ever photo taken of possibly-Fiona in her original costume! Newer photos are on this page, so keep scrolling down..

Possibly-Helmut thought that the art gallery didn't do well enough for its space, so he opened a new jewellery & gift shop in the gallery! And the missus already thought he worked too much, even before opening the new shop.. No wonder she's spent loads of time with their French chef..... (In 1:1 world, the new miniatures are from the Finnish swap for dressing table accessories)

Zooming in a bit.. You can read more about the swap items on my mini site; "Stello's mini stuff" on the right menu..

Unfortunately, two tiny bits came off of the wristwatches, one had come off in the post, and another one snapped off when I was arranging the items in my dollhouse - my office is so COLD that my hands were frozen, so it was my own frozen clumsiness.. But I have the tiny parts saved, so I can glue them back on one of these days.

In this picture, you'll see Marian's paintings again - they are in the gallery, waiting to be framed.

*Gasp!* No one's behind the counter at the jumper shop! Helmut is busy in the gallery shop now.. I moved the Russian doll from the guestroom to the jumper shop.

Marjukka's white bag, Char's garden stand, and my late grandfather's silver box are in the jumper shop for now.

Tadaa! Fiona didn't want to wear the historical costume anymore, so goodbye to the white dress and hat, and welcome new black skirt! (The original dress was stitched to the doll, and I felt bad changing it, but my dollhouse is mainly modern style, so I always felt that the costume was totally out of place.. This new black skirt is just a quick job as I wanted to dress her up for photos, but I was too lazy to make something proper, so.. This'll do for now! I left the original shirt on as it was also stitched on, and it doesn't really look too wrong as it is now..)

She's now wearing her hair back, I made a big knot of it.

The lady of the house and her bedroom, which seems to get messier everyday..

Fiona has left her new jewellery on the desk/dressing table.

A dreamy close-up.. (It's a bit blurry as I actually changed the camera settings without realising it until later.. My hands were so frozen!! I nearly dropped the camera, too)

New jewellery and some new make-up from the recent swap.

More new swap stuff.

Fiona left her unfinished jumper on the sofa, and went to work on her makeover.. LOL

The blue & golden lamp is from the recent swap. Other "display items" were here and there around the dollhouse..

This dining table and chairs were in the kitchen. They're in the living room for now, but I'll be moving them again.. The unfinished bonsai tree is on the top right corner - I still haven't glued its leaves on!

The bathroom with some new swap items..

You can see close-up pictures of the new swap items on my mini site..

Ooops.. I didn't mean to put any photos of this table on my site until the Finnish club magazine is out! Oh well.. Maybe no one will notice. The table & benches are made of lollysticks, and it's my next DIY project for the mini budget column I do. Instructions with pictures will be on my site as soon as the magazine is out, which might be late February or so.

I moved around some furniture in the kitchen, but the lollystick table is NOT there to stay! It doesn't look *too* bad in the photos, but in reality, the colour is not good at all for this kitchen. I'm planning to make a garden someday, where I'll have this table.

The chef has worked hard, and now it's time to take the hat off, and enjoy a pint and a smoke.. The pet pigs are eating in the back corner..

A close-up of the chef..

There's some more space in the guestroom now..
