On my morning walks I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the gorgeous front gardens around. The lovely sunny daffodils stood out; then the gorgeous magnolia and Spring blossoms; next for me to notice was the wisteria and now that seems to be fading and the fabulous lilac trees are all in bloom.
I was particularly taken with the wisteria, I’ve always loved it, but this year – maybe with the extra time to look around during my walks which are being taken for exercise and not just a mad dash to the office, I’ve found it more spectacular than ever.
On a recent renovation to the family dollshouse I asked my daughter if we should have something around the door? We decided on wisteria and a front door in a deep green to show off the blooms.
Now, I have to confess that this house renovation is not up to the standard I see on the various dollhouse sites I visit. The house is generally only viewed through a willow filter on Instagram under the title The Littleton Family Story.
But I took time to paint the whole house, gave the window frames a lick of gloss
and then started on the wisteria.
I painted the areas in white acrylic paint initially.
I find it helps to make the colours ‘pop’ when they’re added on top of the dried white acrylic.
