New beginnings


It's been a while since the last post. This is mainly a result of sister blog, Four Little Walls taking up all my time and attention.

After some consideration I've decided to wind down Sherbet Lemon as the new blog is doing essentially the same thing, just better!

Thank you for reading and I hope you'll continue to follow Four Little Walls throughout 2012 for dolls house related ramblings.

Bake the rainbow!

Short and sweet. Very sweet.
Today is my birthday and I am full of cake.

This cake, baked by my not so little sisters and I , was meant to send the party into a sugar high, fuelling hours of fun on the wii and a few too many beverages. Instead, on the verge of a diabetic coma, we're collectively slumped over the sofa watching Robin Hood prince of thieves. LOVE birthdays .

I might make like the Queen and have two this year.

Social media: miniaturised

Happy new year!!

I hope 2012 has been gentle with you so far?
You may have popped over to our new blog Four little walls? If not do so immediately! It's where we're holding the 52 week, mini making challenge. That's a mini a week for the whole year. Yey!

Any way, dolls house weirdos, stop what you are doing and listen up, there is BIG news in our teeny tiny world.

You may have already been made aware but I'll tell you all the same. 2012 will see the launch of

This ladies and gents, is a social networking site designed especially for dolls house and miniature fans. It's still being built right now and that is literally all I know, oh, and you can subscribe to email alerts, done. Obviously.

Diamonds from a girls best friend

Hope you had a lovely Christmas?
I have just about shaken off the turkey coma and am now trying to be sensible until NYE. Let's see how that goes ...
Now, I am a believer, however, this year Father Christmas shouldn't get all the credit!
My BFF boldly went where nobody has dared to go for my Xmas pressies. A dolls house fair!!

And the girl did good!

Cartier and Chanel, I knew our paths would cross eventually, even if it is in 1:12 scale!!

The Countdown continues

A week today is Christmas eve. I know you already know that, but it's fun to say anyway!

Christmas eve at our house is one of the best bits for me. Lots of festive spirit ( mines a G&T) naughty food and catching up with friends.
Inevitably it will end in my taking a disco nap on the sofa then being woken up by guests leaving and godparents giggling things like "off to bed now, or Father Christmas won't come."
In my sleepy, sozzled state I'll play along with and scurry off with the sisters, but Not before insisting Dad put the the mince pie out for the old boy and a carrot for Rudolph.
...Did I mention we're now all in our mid twenties?! Oh well.

Soo, that leaves 7 doors on my awesome advent calendar.

Can't believe it's taken me this long to show you! A present from my BFF, an gonna save it and use next year too!

And before I go, just a reminder that it's just 19 days till the launch of Four little Wall's 52 week challenge!!

Had some nice little comments and tweets so far, can't wait to get started!!

Ta Ta!

Christmas Shopping

Ok, so I know that it's maybe a bit late in the day to start shopping talk ( full size stuff is all done and dusted, most unlike me!!) but I thought it doesn't really matter if we're just (browser) window shopping?!

I put together a little Etsy treasury of my fave Christmas bits, LOVE them all, and there were so many more that I wanted to include. Hmm, may have to squeeze in another list before the big day?

Anyway, enjoy the teeny tiny shopping fix.

Pssst... I have an announcement!

I write today's post sat virtually on top of an oil heater and a blanket over my lap, like the old woman I am clearly destined to become.

There's muttering of snow. This does not thrill me, as I'm sure is the case for many of you, there's still far too much to do before Christmas close-down to be getting snowed in!!

Besides the usual Sherbet lemon based potterings and life in general there's been another project going on behind the scenes, one that I'm very excited about and have been looking foward to sharing!!
So with out further ado, I present to you Four little walls!!

Four little walls will be launching officially on January 6th 2012 and will ( I hope) become an online hub for lovers of miniatures, interior design and a load of other lovely stuff inbetween.

Essentially, Four Little Walls will be the big sister to Sherbet Lemon, with a slightly cleaner, simpler look and a focus on ...the fab 52 week challenge!!!

Every Friday throughout 2012 I will be sharing a mini make, that's a mini make, once a week, every week for a year. Let's see how that goes??!
There is a list of the makes already on the go but if anybody has something they want to see as a project give me a shout. It could be anything, furniture, accessories, wallpapering tips, kit builds, whatever.
Just no dolls please, to read why head to the Four little walls page!

Now to forewarn you, I'm far from an artisan!
I'll have done a practice run of most projects before I share them, some will work, some won't. It's all part of the fun. The main point of this is to see how much you can create for a dolls house yourself , ideally without breaking the bank, or losing your sanity!

You'll also find shopping posts, reviews and general wittering on from me, (much as you do here!).
The facebook page is now live, so, if as the weeks go by you feel like having a go at any of the projects you can share your pics with me and anybody else that stumbles across the page, I would quite like that.

Soo, let me know what you think.
Fingers crossed that Snow holds off, i'm off to hover over the oven while dinner cooks!
