This has been a strange week for some reason. I have been trying to accomplish finishing the interior of La Malcontenta, but the more I poke at the dollhouse, the more I find to do and sometimes change--which is deadly. I have decided to buy the Clare-Bell black “wrought iron” chandelier for the den.

--The Living and Dining Rooms and Poor Fred:
The living room finally got its table lamps by the loveseat. Of course, I had neglected to drill a hole at the back of the room for the wires to go out the back when I was building. So I had to take everything out of the room to drill and pull wires—YUK!! The lamps are just what I wanted – a torchiere style table lamp from HBS.
|See the lamps in situ. Then disregard the crooked picture and see the crooked chandelier hanging by its wires!|

And then there are about a thousand other little things here and there—this all makes my head hurt.
I am planning to re-do the dining room floor, and then go back Sunnybrook Farm—Fred is very upset that his workshop is still not finished! But at least he has a nice table saw! The sewing room is almost finished. Of course, if the chandelier comes from Clare-bell, then I will put that in, and then go back to Fred.

We have been making “videos” for YouTube, another nerve-wracking experience. Is anything ever easy? Of course NOT.
We just added two new videos:
-- Sunnybrook Farm Exterior Views (a walk around)
-- Sunnybrook Brook Farm’s Ground Floor
A week or so ago, we added the first two:
--Dollhouse Overview (Exterior views of our dollhouses)
--Sunnybrook Farm’s 1st Floor
I hope you enjoy them. They are about three minutes each.
You can also get to the videos from the We are on YouTube image at the top of our blog in the sidebar, or you can go to YouTube and put “irismarchcreations” in the search box.
Sorry this blog has no "glitz" and is really a "blah" blog.
