Dollshouses and Motorbikes

Pin It
So back in the beginning, before there was a facebook page, a website or a blog - The Owl and the Elephant was merely a twinkle in our eyes, an idea in our hearts and a storm in our teacups!
We drank copious amounts of tea and discussed all the things we would love to do and went to work.
Suddenly what used to be The Elephant's (Nat's) games room became our workshop! Filled to the brim with fabrics, wipes cases, light switches, chocolate (face it, can any business really succeed without chocolate?) and more. Then, just when we thought it could fit no more "stuff" in it, came the dollshouse.....
One of our many lines will be repurposed, reinvented and rebeautified furniture so before we became inundated with orders and before we realised just HOW busy we would be we went around and collected furniture...just one or two pieces......

Including a rather large, could store your kids in it type dollshouse.
Here is where we find our dilema... Apparently, Mr Elephant would like his garage back to park his motorbike in. I mean come on - priorities!!! So at the risk of coming home to all our furniture out on the curb (or worse!) we are rolling up our sleeves and beginning the rebirth of the dollshouse!
Over the next couple of weeks we will be blogging our progress starting with this before pic:

So stay tuned! We have a few ideas up our sleeve but would love to hear your suggestions! Obviously this item would be a litttttttlllle hard to post (though courier is of course an option) so we are hoping to "rehome" our finished dollshouse with a lovely Perth family upon completion so if you are interested please drop us a line!

Thought of the moment :
