Im working on my Tudor Cottage again and realized that Im at the point in the journey (its been several years due to real life) that I can start daydreaming about interior decorating. Started the master "LIST"...love lists....anyway, thought it might be fun to brainstorm together, not just for my benefit but just for fun and maybe would help others too. This is a rustic cottage using the Dura Craft Tudor, no one has moved in yet but the vibe I was going for is kind of storybook/wind in the willows/cozy English cottage/hearth witch. I stated "shopping" list but many items are handmade or from kits This is what I have so far: -Mis-matched kitchen table chairs, style and paint, either Crysnbon kits or Houseworks or HOM -teapot- several, both porcelain (one "special occasion" teapot and several for cupboard in unfinished metal (painted white or black or silver and black) -books (handmade) -paintings -table top flowers in a glass vase (flowers from hanky panky or sdk kits) faux water in vase? -cupboard or hutch - crysnbon or houseworks kit filled with jams/canned and bottled goods/flour,sugar and knick knacks - domed cake stand (glass) -open shelving -indoor potted plant/flower, planted in crockery -handmade broom/dust pan/feather duster -a few "special occasion" porcelain or faux porcelain plates to hang on wall - lit fireplace -hand made rugs/rag rugs, door mat, maybe one nice "fancier" rug upstairs -shabby arm chair (that looks like it is past its heyday, was once fancy -rocking chair -possibly grandfather clock -white everyday dishes/tea cups - chrysnbon -a few pieces of painted furniture Bavarian style -chest or trunk for bedroom -handmade quilt -old clock Any other thoughts? ~loose firewood Oh and I have brought this up here before, scenting your dollhouse.. I found this essential oil that is comparable to the popular essential oil Four Thieves, the one I have is called Medieval. Its based on the legend of the Four Thieves who lived during the black plague and kept themselves from catching the plague by utilizing Clove, Rosemary and Eucalyptus,Lemon and Cinnamon (just a legend Im sure) anyway....I sprinkle essential oil on bedding, other soft surfaces, etc., this scent will be perfect for this house
