Swedish summer cottage

My little Swedish summer cottage is looking a little dusty....

Mormor and morfar are not looking very impressed (is there even some mildew on morfar's jacket?!).  Most of their favourite furniture has been donated to the white scandinavian house!

One day I will start to spruce it up a little for them, repaint the front door, finish the outside walls and chimney.  Today they just had a little dusting.  (Actually I think these two figures may be from Germany, a lucky find in perfect 1:12 scale).

Box lid update

A while ago I painted the box lid I'd found by 'Handcast Designs Ltd' to resemble carved wood.  I used some leftover paint that came with a Chrysnbon kit, as I thought it would be suitable for the type of resin material the lid was cast in.  The paint seemed to take to it very well, and I'm quite pleased with the result.  In the end, however, I decided that I won't use it for the caravan.  I think it will work better somehow mounted on the wall of the library in Manderley (yet to be decorated!).
