Georgian Fireplace gets an upgrade...

Georgian Fireplace with hob grate and coal fire
After a bit of trial and error with the prototype I have upgraded my Georgian Fireplace to a working fireplace with metal hob grate and real coal fire.

It is lit with an LED bulb which gives it a very effective glowing embers look - the photo doesn't really do it justice!

LED's are very bright, last thousands of hours and produce virtually no heat making them perfect for miniature fireplaces.  No worrying about replacing the bulb or dodgy connections though I do hate those little plugs for the socket strips.  Fiddly to wire up and the connections always seem a bit dodgy, but they work I guess.  It's designed for a standard 12v supply.

The fireplace is available as a self assembly kit or as a ready made fireplace.  The small hob grate is also available separately if you already have a fireplace.

New Product - Real Wood Tiles

Last weekend I added a new product to my webshop.  Real wood tiles in 5 colours which can be mixed and matched to create a stunning floor for your dolls house.   Lots of patterns can be created using a mix of complimentary colours or stick to one colour  - either way you will create a beautiful and sophisticated floor.

The tiles come in various pack sizes and you can mix and match the colours - just let me know what you would like.  They are just 1/16th thick and 1/2" square but other sizes are available on request.

Prices start at just £3.00
