finally: tearoom finished

Here it is, finally. The tearoom I made from a kit by Cynthia Howe . The kit was very well done , quiet complete, well thought out and with great, illustrated and well-written instructions - and if there is any unsuspected problem, Cynthia just answers you by email right away.
All fretwork was laser-cut. The furniture ( Bespaq) was also included in the kit. The ceiling was wired, so that the only thing one had to do was be carfeul with the wiring. Well, it was done quite well, too, as the wiring survived the travel over the Atlantic, my handling and the handling by the guy who made a frame for the whole box.
There is a background , lit by fluorette lights over the windows on the outside of the inner box.

The dolls I put in are , from left to right:
a doll dressed by me from a kit by Gisele Sullivan
a doll made and dressed by Debbie Dixon-Paver
and a doll made by Diane Pietrocola.
(Sorry about the flashlights!!! )

Now we need some teapots and cups and cakeplates, and , of course, cakes and sandwiches!
