Oak Bay Farmhouse Front Porch
Here are some photos of the porch of my Oak Bay Farmhouse that I have shown a couple of the rooms previously. The farmhouse was a discontinued house by Greenleaf from the early 1980's, they discontinued it shortly after we had made it and started selling dollhouses with our miniature business. I really liked it because it has a front and is open on two sides so it doesn't need to be turned around to few the inside. I can't remember the name of it though but people really were interested in it. I hear Greenleaf is bringing back a dollhouse and hope they think of this some.
I wove the chair in the early 80's when I was moving away from weaving and getting into miniatures. I wasn't happy with it at the time because of how rustic it looked but now I like it and it has aged even more, lol. The wonderful table I found in England by Rosie Duck. The veggies were from for a workshop I gave. The lovely daffodils were a gift from Michelle at Little Rabbit Miniatures, the tulips are by Carol Jones and the other plant in the basket is by Judy Lawson from Vancouver. The tiny crocheted basket is amazing and was made by a lady who used to own a wonderful miniature shop in Port Orchard, if anyone knows her name I would love to know. Shirley Rose, I mentioned a previous post about her miniature town, made the plants by the rocking chair. John made the bricks from clay and even fired them, I love them! One brick seems to be missing but there is always a lot of work to do on a farmhouse.
