Just to remind you that, if you buy September's Dolls House and Miniature Scene magazine, you will see my first article on the Wentworth. It is out today. I have had an advance copy and it looks fine. They have changed a couple of things very slightly and made a couple of mistakes when labelling the photographs, but nothing that actually matters. The girl's bedroom is described as the spare bedroom and one photo shows the house on the basement and infers the basement is an Argos trolley. As I said it only shows up if you are the person who wrote it. I am very happy with what they've done with my stuff.
I have to get my copy in miles ahead of schedule because we will be in the States when some of the articles appear. This also means I need to take a zillion detailed photos for when I am on the other side of the pond, just in case anything needs adding to or changing when I am over there and I get asked for a rewrite or photos.
I am planning on that photo session 'freeing up' the Wentworth so that I can cannibalise it for Chocolat and Star Fish Cottage. When I come back next summer I am planning on selling the building to give me more room. As I keep saying my home won't accommodate four projects.
I will probably have it stripped out by September so anyone reading this can have first dibs on it then if they are interested. The Quick Style (this means the exterior was professionally finished by them) Dolls House Emporium kit with free Burghley basement cost £250. If you add on paint, trims, wallpaper, carpet, wooden flooring there is at least another hundred pounds spent. It will also have sixteen lights, four fireplaces and a fitted ELF kitchen - more than another three hundred pounds. So something like £700 in total. I would like £200 for it. For someone who wants to save over five hundred pounds and a lot of time it would be a bargain.
You would also be owning a property with a blog and a series of (7) articles published about it. After February it will have the seven magazines as part of the deal and a CD containing hundreds of photographs.
