Welcome and thank you for visiting, I hope you will stay a while !
I'm very excited about my project and hope you will enjoy watching it take shape .
I have recently bought a wonderful Sid Cooke dolls house kit, "Empire Stores".
it is the most wonderful dolls house shop kit and today I will be unpacking it and beginning to build it into the setting for the stories I have to tell................................. but more of those later !
I hope you will enjoy watching as the building takes shape from a flat pack into a beautiful shop with living accommodation above.
I hope to have some tips to share along the way , or maybe you will have some to share with me as the building progresses !
Once the kit is built and the outside decorated with bricks and tiles we will move inside and work on the interior . There are 4 rooms above the shop plus attic space so there will be lots to do !
Empire Stores is the largest of the Sid cooke shops and I have just fell in love with it.
It will be transformed into "Belle's Toy Emporium " and I hope you will enjoy meeting Belle and the other folk whose lives are entwined with hers and the Emporium itself as their stories unfold.
I cant wait to open the box !julie xxx
