Make your own Victorian House!

A couple of weeks ago a group of us went for a meal, one of our number suggested that we should all go back to his house to finish the evening off with a brandy.

On one of his shelves amongst lots of treasures I spotted something that I recognized but had forgotten all about, a faded paper model of a Victorian house. It was a model that I’d made with my Dad years and years ago (obviously not the ¬†actual one we had made)

I think that Dad must have bought it as he particularly liked that sort of thing (pop-up books, paper engineering) and we spent a some very happy hours making the model which sat on a shelf in my bedroom for many years.

I had to have it again and so with the help of Amazon a copy of the book arrived today!

Make your own Victorian House by Rosemary Lowndes and Claude Kailer (all you need is a pair of scissors and glue) It looks as exciting as it did all those years ago and brings back happy memories, I’m itching to start making it again!
