Hi Jackie,I tried to reply to your question about umber on the forum,but for some reason it won't let me leave a comment!
Anyway,in answer to your query, burnt umber is the name of a colour,it is a dark brown.If you go in to an art or a craft shop they will sell small pots of acrylic paint,they are just over 1 and ideal for miniature work.I use them to paint my food.

Hi Rebecca.I will have a go at taking inside pics when i have some time.I discovered a few months back that the lundby house i have is actually a carolines home,but it only cost 2 so ideal for my grandaughter.I also have a triang now aswell.I would love to furnish it with pit a pat furniture but it is very expensive on ebay.I am watching some settee sets on ebay now but i doubt i will win them.I think 30 is a good enough price to pay but am sure they will go for nearly 60.

Hi Jackie, that looks like a lovely house! It has Romside windows and doors, and that with the gable timbering and general design suggests to me that it's a house made at home to a plan issued by either Hobbies or Handicrafts. But I'm no expert - maybe if you could post some more photos - of the inside too - other members might know more about which company put out the plans (if it is a Hobbies or Handicrafts house), or possibly made it - Romside doors and windows were used by companies like Conway Valley and others even less well known, too.
Look forward to seeing more of this house and your others! Nice that you have one your granddaughter plays with - which model of Lundby house is it?

Welcome to the site, there are many beautiful houses around. I too spend hours looking at photos on the computer wishing I owed some of them, good way to get out of the housework though!
