ENG: In the parcel from callsmall I also got this cool yellow furniture. I lent it to Polly Line, while she's waiting for her other furniture to arrive. But she was so happy with it, so I don't know if I'll ever get it back! She immediately invited her friends Nora and Cocco Flanell over to show off her new house and furniture. And for a banana daiquiri.
NOR: I pakken fra callsmall fikk jeg også disse kule gule møblene. Jeg lånte dem til Polly Line for å ha mens hun venter på å få resten av innredningen hun har bestilt. Men hun ble så fornøyd med dem, så det spørs om jeg noengang får dem tilbake! Hun inviterte straks venninnene sine, Nora og Cocco Flanell over for å vise frem huset og de nye møblene. Og for en banana daiquiri.

ENG: I'm starting to get a bit worried about Helmer. Callsmall sent him a new guitar and now he's sitting in his study all day, singing and daydreaming of his female fans. One of the songs I heard him singing is by the Norwegian band de Lillos:
Will I find a woman, and will she tell me when? She may need a bit of spine since I'm stubborn now and then She'll have to hold my hand if something scary's going on But mainly she'll just be there, with sweetness and with fun
Will I find the woman, or will she come my way, who will bring me little presents and smile to me all day. That I'm a handsome guy, it's a fact she'll never hide And she'll buy me drinks and tickets for a movie or a ride
It would be nice if she had a job that pays her fairly well For I'll just sing and play the guitar and the truth is it will never sell The things I care the most for are myself and my guitar But something by the name of love will reach her from afar
Something by the name of love, something by the name of love Something by the name of love, something by the name of love
(I'm sorry about the blurry picture, I think my concern made my hand a bit unsteady)
NOR: Jeg er blitt litt bekymret for Helmer. Callsmall sendte ham en ny gitar og nå sitter han hele dagen på kontoret sitt og synger mens hans dagdrømmer om beundrerinnene sine. En av sangene jeg hørte ham synge var denne av de Lillos:
Finnes det en kvinne en slik som jeg vil ha Hun kan gjerne være streng for jeg kan jo bli litt sta Og hun må holde meg i hånden hvis noe farlig skulle skje Men ellers være snill og prøve å få meg til å le
Finnes det en kvinne en slik som jeg vil ha Som kan gi meg små presanger og søte smil hver dag Og alltid må hun si at jeg er den peneste Og spandere røyk og kino og en middag på café
Og hun må gjerne ha en jobb hvor hun tjener ganske bra For jeg skal bare spille gitar og det blir neppe noe å leve av Og stort sett er jeg egentlig bare opptatt av meg selv Men noe som heter kjærlighet det skal hun få allikevel
Noe som heter kjærlighet, noe som heter kjærlighet Noe som heter kjærlighet, noe som heter kjærlighet
(Beklager det dårlige bildet, jeg tror bekymringen gjorde meg litt ustø på hånda.)
ENG: If someone is interested in the melody as well, I found it here on youtube, but I'm afraid the clip is of a rather poor quality.
ENG: Some new interior details. NOR: Noen nye interiørdetaljer.
- Thank you for the fab guitar callsmall!

ENG: Last week I let my dolls see Rebecca's blog where the Praegers were cleaning their home, in the hope that they would follow their good example, since none of their houses have been cleaned for a while. But Nora said Martha, the cleaning lady, was expected this week, and didn't see the point in cleaning the house first. But I reminded her there was also a lot of laundry to be done, and even installed a ceiling lamp in the utility room to make it easier for her to see what she's doing. And here she's at work!
NOR: Sist helg viste jeg dukkene Rebeccas blogg og posten hvor familien Praeger gjorde rent, i håp om at de ville følge deres gode eksempel, siden ingen av husene deres hadde blitt rengjort på en stund. Men Nora sa at siden Martha, rengjøringshjelpen, skulle komme til uken, så hun ikke noe poeng i å gjøre rent først. Men jeg minte henne på at det også hadde hopet seg opp med skittentøy på vaskerommet og for å gjøre det enklere å få gjort arbeidet satte jeg også inn en taklampe der. Og her er hun i gang!
ENG: Here is the utility room afterwards. The vacuum cleaner is gone, so I wonder if someone has changed their mind about not cleaning? NOR: Her er vaskerommet etterpå. Støvsugeren er borte, så jeg lurer på om noen har skiftet mening?

Karl Edo Spook hopes you're not tired of his shop yet, because he just had to show you his new Bocca lip sofa! It has been on his want-list for ages, and finally he got hold of one. Karl Edo's friend Arne Vaa was happy to be the first to try it.
Update: I came up with a better headline, and my husband convinced me to change it. If I hadn't, the waisted pun would have tormented him for ages :-)

Hi, my name is Helene. I'm 45, married and have a girl who's 10 and a boy who's 13 years old. All my houses are in the 1:16th scale, or 3/4" scale, which it's also called. I got my first Lundby doll's house when I was 7, but did not get addicted until recent years and especially after I joined the Norwegian forum for dolls houses; www.dukkehusforum.com, where there's a lot of inspiration to be found!
