Raven's Moon....Dream House or Disaster?

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?

An open view of Raven's Moon. Do you think this would make a suitable home for the family? What would you do with each room? Is this grand enough for Hattie?

Well folks there is the grand tour. What do you think? Hattie seems to be leaning towards shabby chic which Victoria likes too :)

 I redid most of the rooms a few years ago, the kitchen is finished except for more lighting. I put my most favorite kitchen miniatures in there, not crazy about the floor but I had that wrapping paper and love black and white floors. I put in hard wired lights and put the stairs back in, I usually leave out the stairs as they take up so much room and may end up taking them out again to make more room for furniture. What do you think? Stairs or no stairs?
Please readers let me know what you would do to this house ~

None of the people in this story are real ~
