I Aten't Dead

Something, nothing and everything…

Nanny Ogg’s Parlour

  • September 5, 2010 4:29 pm

As I already have 2 dollhouses (a Victorian country villa and a WWII house), it was decided that I would have to switch to room boxes. After all, there’s only so much room for 1:12 dollhouses in a pretty small 3-bed terrace.

I got my first room box for Xmas but it’s taken me a while to decide what I want to do with it — and get hold of those few, all-important, key pieces. Last week, I went on a bit of an eBay spree and managed to get hold of an armchair, a pot-bellied dresser and a display cabinet for Nanny Ogg’s parlour.

Next task — actually put the room box itself together. That should be fun. It’s flat packed.

I’ve also now realised that I’ve chosen the most difficult of the 3 Discworld witches to start with. Granny’s kitchen would have been easiest as it would be very sparse. Even Magrat’s bedroom wouldn’t need to be as cluttered and full as Nanny’s parlour. Plus it’s next to impossible to run searches for “1:12 vaguely tacky dollhouse ornaments”.

    Okay, this is funnier…. I have a dollhouse my grandfather built for me. Mine. Not the kid’s, mine. 😀

    I hovered jealousy whilst my dad built a dollhouse for my baby niece. She’s now 19. Her dollhouse has since been passed to a 2nd niece and, late last year, to me! So it is true that all good things come to those who wait.
