Fifty

1. Dollars. The amount that the new IKEA FLISAT dolls' house costs. Which my friend took great delight in buying as a gift for me.

And that I put together this afternoon.

Completed IKEA FLISAT dolls' house with a 1/12 scale egg chair in one room for scale.
2. The age I turned today (for the second time: I decided last year that 49 wasn't a number I liked very much so went straight to 50).
Modern dolls' house miniature 50th birthday scene with cake, champagne and a gold diamante '50' on the wall.
Of course, I had to throw up a birthday scene in my new house before I decide if I need to paint the walls and floors to better fit with my d├ęcor...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Fortunately that looks like a real chocolate cake in there. Any chance there's also some real champagne somewhere?

Thank you, lovelies. I had a great day, particularly compared to last year.

Shannon: The chocolate cake was a chocolate from a box a friend bought for me from Max Brenner: I ate it soon after I took the photo! And there is liquid in the bottle but I wasn't keen to find out what it was. No champagne in real life either: I settled for three bottles of Yellow for $21 instead.

Kitty and Kat: I was thinking that too: but first I have to decide if I'm going to stain the wood bits, or paint them to cover the (very over scale) wood grain and knots...

elbey: I saw photos of the house with the(1:1.76 scale)in it, and it looked crowded. Which made me think the house could work in 1/12 scale with some creativity. If all else fails, I figured I could use it as a display on my stall...

If you are interested, a few weeks ago I finally got my Ikea dollhouse, cut some additional openings, made some "modern steps" (Popsicle sticks really. I decided not to paint or light, and I am going to use it as a display shelf of revolving miniatures

I absolutely love the quirkiness of your blog and now I very much yearn for a doll house as beautiful as yours...even better, with miniature cakes to nibble on! I'm so glad I stumbled across your blog. Much love from England xx
