‘Make your own Victorian House’ I have!

Back in March I said that I’d found a copy of a book that I’d had as a child ‘Make your own Victorian House’. Dad had originally bought it for me….or for him and me. We spent a lot of time putting it together and it sat on a shelf in my bedroom until I went to university (who knows what happened to it after that!)

I’ve now got round to making the model and I’m quite pleased with it. It’s funny that all these years later  I could recognize pieces and remembered cutting them out and sticking them together the first time round. It was fun to make again and brought back some lovely memories of sitting at the table with Dad snipping and sticking!

The friend who has the model which started me off on this journey into past times has given me a paper model of the Paris Opera House to make up……….it looks very complicated and may hang around for a while until I build up the strength to make it!

  1. I saw this when we visited. It looked as though it took hours to put together I liked it, I think I said before that I made something similar when I was a girl, about a million years ago.
