I expect you to all read and a full on swoon LOL
Fires can be an interesting addition in a doll room.
Barbie, Sindy and Gloria have all made many a fire over the years...
This is a rather fun fireplace originally in red (nice change from PINK). This was one of my first experiments and I hand painted it an off white colour. I will one day give this a bit of an upgrade as I've learnt a lot over the years. Not sure what at the moment hence it still as is!
My dad is a model train enthusiast (OO scale) and I have over the years had a lot of help from him and also been to many a model railway show where I have picked up some interesting items that I can re-purpose. Below is one of those items a railway arch that I have painted (again a long time ago) and I need to add some grouting and maybe a wash?
Below is a Sindy fire , I came in the cream and I repainted it to black. This is one of my favourite fires as it lights up. Unfortunately the bulbs don't work and I need to find replacements. While these fires are easy enough to still find on E.Bay around Europe they are not easy to find in America.
Another way to make an easy more modern fire is to convert a photo frame. I'll show you more on that later.
These are cut outs I found in magazines and once glued onto some card will make great easy to use fires.
I wanted to make some on trend fire places/firewalls, I think these plastic boxes might be very helpful
Along with some card, glue, glue gun, beads, wood, foam core and a few other things I've not thought of yet.....
This has a fire and one of the BEST things ever made (in my opinion).....Sindy's Wall Of Sound
It does have a fire but soooo much more. A clock that ticks, a phone that rings, a cat that mews, a fire that crackles and lights up, the radio really works, and there is a plug socket for the vacuum cleaner with sounds and working light.
I revamped mine
photo hosting service
So now lets start making some fireplaces
So I think I might over run the page limit so for the rest please go to my BLOG
My BLOG has a TON of how too's and 'stuff' that you might find interesting...or very boring?
