A mother of two school-age children, Diane explains:
“I began writing this blog as a way to record the progress of renovating an old classical dolls house which I built from a Dolls House Emporium kit about 25 years ago. It has now evolved into a blog about my attempts to build another 4 dolls house kits and the items I buy and make to fill them.”
Among Diane’s current projects is a DHE house she bought on eBay and is now planning to turn into an Edwardian tea room.
As her blog reveals, she has already been stocking up on Edwardian-themed items from the DHE website.
At the same time, she is decorating her Magpies and Jenny Wren’s kit with plans to turn the latter into a hairdresser’s salon and the former into a modern tea room to complement her Edwardian one.
As if Diane isn’t busy enough with her projects and raising two children, she also has a small animal boarding business which she runs from her own home.
Last year she managed to marry two of her loves when she created a miniature version of her boarding business out of our Garden Pavilion as her entry for the 2011 Creative Competition.
