Greetings Friends, well here we are back to shop for a grand manor, castle or palace for Hattie, The Count and the wee twins Maria and Irina ~
First I want to thank you all for being here, I see since I reappeared to blogland there is not many of the blogs I followed still posting, it makes me sad but I realize people move on... guilty me missing for almost 5 years but I am making it up to my readers because I have a story to tell and I thought about my dolls lying dormant in a hat box the whole time.
Apologies over, we will move on.
|Remember last time we arrived at Raven's Moon the manor Maggie thought Hattie might like ~|
|Here we are at Raven's Moon a once grand manor. Let's step inside and take a tour ~|
|Here we are, the first room is the kitchen, the occupants have left everything in place, they seem to have left in a hurry ~|
|Maggie says it seems to be all in working order and quite tidy, I don't know if this is a style you like Hattie but it is an easy fix with new appliances and a coat of fresh paint ~|
|Hattie exclaims " I love everything! What is this style called? It looks so stylish " Maggie tells Hattie she thinks it is shabby chic, Hattie whops out " I love Shabby Chic! I want my whole house in that style "|
|Here we are in the dining room with it's beautiful gold ceiling, I think the walls need to be lighter but that is an easy fix ~ Hattie informs Maggie she wants it Shabby Chic ~|
|Up on the second floor is this little room with hideous wall paper and painted floors, what would you do with this room?|
|Here we are on the second floor, I think this room has been redone already, what do you think Hattie? Is this shabby enough for you?|
|Look at that beautiful fire warming the whole room ~ I made the fires and fire screens for the new fireplaces, still not finished ~ Love the fire light ~|
|Here we are on the top floor of the manor, a smaller room perhaps a sewing room for Hattie's sewing business ~ Hattie was a much sought after seamstress before she knew of the Count and the family agreement for their marriage ~|
|And here on the top floor is another room already done, maybe a nursery for the twins?|
