Hello Christine, I enjoyed your 'plates' article in the magazine this month. Good job you don't live here in 'The Potteries'!

Think I will try to make a quilt in the next week - seem to found some energy so I am making tiles for one house & possibly start painting it, thinking and planning over another DH I have, pondering if I can find some money to buy another DH I have seen and 'want badly' - but obviously don't need it!! So... going to try the quilt too - will let you know how it goes -sadly I can't print out on my lappi as not compatible so I can't print out your plans etc. Charlotte/Dottie or now, Pottie Lottie! X

Thanks for passing on your site to me; read it with great envy and interest and yes, dribbled over all the pictures on everyone else's site. Makes me feel so inferior!! Oddly I was looking through all my books about sewing (have a LOT!) and came across one that I didn't realise was about making quilts for dolls and cots. Have already got The Miniature Quilt book by Dinah Travis - are there any more out there to purchase? Thanks for everything. X

Scared to make any sort of comment on here now but thanks for your message and I do aim to try and make one seeing as make them 'our' size and do a lot of sewing but trouble is I am not sure my fingers will be able to cope with it due to illness etc.. but will give it a go def'.. I have put to one side 2 lovely Liberty hankies which would do the job, so.... hopefully one day in the near future ... will let you know when! X

Hello Christine, thanks for your comment on my Stockbroker which I have made into Enid Blytons home. I absolutely loved her books as a child, especially the Famous Five. Enid lives in the house with her two daughters and her second husband, she looks quite jolly, a recent film on TV about her life portrayed her as a bit unkind, which I thought was unfair. Appropriately, I have converted the bathroom into the daughters bedroom as no one ever goes to the loo in any of her books! Hope your project is coming along well it sounds a great idea!

I have a larger scale metal washstand, shall I add it to your album? It might motivate some others to join in!

thank you for putting some pics of your little mettoy on the gallery. Its great that someone else enjoys these type of houses, I love the quirky ness of them and find them much easier on my pocket than some of the more mature properties. I'll see if I tcan ake some clearer pics of the box which has nice drawings of the furniture which came with it originally but photography is not my strong point

Thank you Violet and Joan. I agree about our childhoods - how lucky we were! I hadn't thought of doing an album because I have so little to show. I'll have a fossick in the box I keep my bits when I have a chance. Meanwhile I have a blog, but that is on my new build Enid Blyton styled house so I'm not sure how interesting it would be. :)

Hi Christine, just read your page, we seem alike, passed my love of Enid Blyton to my daughter (how innocent our childhood days were compared to now sadly). Its such fun & so relaxing to lose oneself in a second childhood with the help of our beautiful d.houses. I have managed to find some of the 60's plastic furniture (mostly Kleeware) & accessories that were in my lovely house that my Dad made. Just to handle them rekindles so many happy memories & they look fab in Triang Avon. The front of the house is missing so Ive replaced it with hard see-through panel so I can gaze lovingly whenever I want!
