Mountfield: Bathroom

Building the Mountfield Doll House

So far I've planned out the living room, dining room, and the kitchen. This week I'm looking at the bathroom. There are some really cool vintage bathroom sets out there, but the problem is that most doll houses at the time were in the Lundby 1:18 scale as opposed to the standard 1:12. Just to make life that little bit more difficult!

Bathroom Suite. I've got an art deco style set which I'm planning on painting avocado, and swapping out the taps to the regular double rather than a mixer.

The only thing left to decide on is the small matter of flooring and wall covering... (Any suggestions much appreciated!) It's a good job it'll be a while before I start on this room!

  5. Oooh the bath mats are the best! And the tiny shelves. .. and...all of it! ;P

    Where do you get the components? Off ebay? Or are there shops for it?

    I have an amazing vintage dollhouse set (the insides, no actual house) that a Grandmotherly person (not an actual Grandma, a friend of our family... ahahaha so many parentheses...) gave me as a child - it's packed away but this is soo making me want to get it out and do up an actual dollhouse for it...

    1. Do it! Hehe, seriously, it is such an addictive hobby, especially as you can get so many cool little bits and pieces these days. My favourite doll house stores at the moment at Dolls House Mall, Elf Miniatures, and Etsy - there is loads on there. x

British Food

A/N: On a previous blog wrote a whole series of posts on British life, explained for American fiction writers. This week I'm reposting the entry explaining British cuisine... Britain is world renowned for its stodgy, uninspiring cuisine. (Which should explain the deep suspicion Britons have of most foreign cuisine, unless it's been suitably adapted for the British palette.) BBC sitcom Goodness Gracious Me explains it best via the 'going for an English' sketch - a play on the popular British past time of 'going for an Indian (i.e. curry)'. " What's the blandest thing on the menu? " asks one character, later encouraging another, " Just have something a little bland, huh? Waiter, what have you got that is not totally tasteless? " Because, the truth is that traditional British fare is far from a taste sensation for those who haven't been raised on the stuff. Still, read on, and you can judge for yourself...

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
