Granny and Grampy's home
This is where Granny and Grampy live (grandparents to the children who live in the 2nd GeeBee). They are relaxing after lunch before they go for their afternoon walk. The cat is getting old now and sleeps a lot by the fire when she's not watching the canary..

I agree with Patty. When I decorated 1, Brenville Cottages (my version of Miss Heniman's house), I papered onto thin card first then fixed it to the walls with double sided tape. It was a lot easier applying the borders when I could work flat on a table! I also used Patty's preferred trick of taking the paper around the card on the front edges - no raw edges look so much better when the house is open.

That's a good tip about making the edges look neat!

I would experiment a bit with the papering, personally I think much better to paper onto card first. that way you can change things easily if you change your mind and it does a much neater job. Some dolls house papers are better than others too so its worth finding out other peoples experiences. I don't like DH wallpaper much, I prefer to use real paper in a tiny pattern (but that's just me).

Lovely room for granny and gramps to reside and relax, looks very homely and the suite is a beautiful pattern and colour.

Yes Patty I am, I've only just cleaned them and put furniture in at the min but soon will start decorating. Can't decide whether to paste paper straight on walls or onto card and then double sided tape to walls...there's also some first aid required, the front of the kitchen has been broken off at some point and needs re-attaching somehow... might smile sweetly at hubby!

another homely room. Are you going to add wallpapers to your houses?

Lovely cottagey room. Pretty chintzy suite. The two elderly Grecons look very comfy here.

Everyone's "on the 'phone", so far!
