The local Village Shop

My idea for this little shop came about as soon as I saw this dollshouse kit. Straightaway it reminded me of a shop in a tiny village here in North Yorkshire.

I've spent lots of happy times there when my children were little. It was a great place to spend an afternoon out and the local shop there has two Georgian bow windows just like these miniature ones.

Some recent photos

It has been a long time since I updated this blog as I haven't  been able to work on it until now.
The Village Shop has been packed away as I had no space to display it. At last I've been able to get it out and do some well needed refurbishment.


The front is finished with Richard Stacey real stone but as this is quite heavy I didn't want to do the sides with that so opted for the Bromley Craft stone stencil and compound. 


I'm pleased with the result. After painting I think it matches in quite well.


I've added some window boxes too. 


All my houses together.
