I wish you all a magical and delightful Christmas Season this year!
In the meantime, I am focusing further on filling out the Steampunk kitchen build. I am having a good time with this, but like most everything else, it is a truly time consuming project! The progress is slow, but fairly steady, even in the face of the busy Christmas Season.
I thought you might enjoy seeing the underlying inspiration for this kitchen project. I read an article a few months ago, just when I was beginning my thinking on the miniature house project. The article so intrigued me, both for the historic value and for the associations it brought up for me. All "Downton Abbey", and Jane Austen connotations.
I have a true love of old things, especially old things that retain their original character. The article was about just such a kitchen which was discovered in a basement in the UK. The basement kitchen, servants bells and all, had been walled up for over 60 years. You simply must take a look if you love old things. You can find the article at the Daily News website.
