Hi Frances,where are you now? Remember the green chaise and chairs I bought from you? Well I found the perfect house for them so it proved a very expensive purchase! It is called Gravel Lane House and you will be able to see them in the album after I did the repairs.I still love the furniture and the little house is my favourite.

Hi Frances,
I'll be happy to meet you, when you will come back to France.
I'm unable to tell you, how many houses , I have. Some of them are only there, to be repaired. They won't stay. I would say, there are more than 20 ...

Hi Frances,
nice to meet someone, who lives near my home, even if it's only during the summer.
I have seen your pictures, I particularly love your Triang 62, and this wonderful sink, you have put in the kitchen. What a nice piece of furniture! You're lucky.

Hi Frances,I have just looked at your picture trail and now I'm starving(should have had breakfast first!) You have made some beautiful things.I love Edith's shop and your little stories bring them to life.I especially like your Staffordshire dogs.I'm also green with envy over your house in Provence.I made a shabby chic French house last year for one of my daughters in law.I think it is in the album
"Joan's houses Cumbria."
By the way,I live about 11 miles from Silloth,in a sleepy little village called Blennerhasset.

This is the link for the Picture Trail site. The dolls house photos on here are 8 years old, so improvements and restorations have been carried on in some together with deliveries of more furniture.

Hi Frances,I have only just noticed you too.How far north are you.I'm in north west Cumbria.Are you going to put an album on? It would be great to be able to admire your Triangs.I only have one Triang,a 1930s number 60 with a front garden.I adore it!

Hello Frances-great to find another collector and lover of old dolls houses in the NW. There are a few of us but we're a fairly shy bunch!----and some like me are not very pc enabled?- I am useless at photo attachments etc. I'm afraid.
Lovely to meet you-sorry this is so late but I've been off-line for a while. This site is brilliant, I've really missed it.
Good wishes,Marel
