Hello followers! I know it's been some time since I last posted an updated on this property and Miniatura and the York Fair have come and gone but I was able to attend both fairs and managed to collect quite a few accessories for all three properties on the go at the moment.
I can at last show you the completed Bedroom. (Some photos have to be taken with the flash as the room is situated behind a pull-out section and that blocks any natural light).

Without flash -
The lady of the house has her slippers by the side of the bed and at the end of the four poster is a kist (Scottish chest) which will, hopefully in time, be filled with items as yet to be thought of!
The photo below shows the decorated fourth wall with the door leading into The Study (the Snuggery)
On closer inspection, you can see a furry friend making it's way in.......
and finally, the sleeping cap shown below was made for me by Jonquil I've had this sitting in my stash for quite some time and was just waiting on the exact spot for it. I just hope you didn't think I'd forgotten about it Jonquil! It's such a lovely and unusual piece - I'm very pleased to have it in my collection.
"Phrenology" - (according to Wikipedia)
was a faculty psychology, theory of brain and science of character reading, what the nineteenth century phrenologists called "the only true science of mind". Phrenology was derived from the theories of the idiosyncratic Viennese physician Franz Joseph Gall (1758 - 1828).
For some time now I've been searching for a Phrenology head. I decided that the Master of Marsh Hall, being an educated Victorian individual, was keen on the study of Phrenology so of course he had to have a head. This proved really tricky but I eventually got one made (in fact the maker gave me two - adult and baby), tracked down some images and added the relevant lines so I can now place them in the Snuggery along with the poster I already had.
These are the images I used as reference - the baby looks a bit scary!
At last, I can finally say that The Snuggery is complete.
