More work on the Christmas House!

The blue and white tiles I bought in Fuingirola are perfect for Santa's bathroom.
I decided to put in a false wall at the back as the room was too big and the sloping ceiling difficult. Now that I've halved the size of the side wall I've decided I can live with the bit of blue and silver wrapping paper on the right side wall.
I started this house several years ago when my youngest son decided he didn't want a dollshouse any more. I thought I'd make it a fun Santa House for children (prospective grandchildren) to touch, so filled it with cheap furniture and any Christmas themed doll or ornament.
Along the years I added nicer bits and now it's rather a mix of allsorts and I'm also feeling a little possessive about it, not sure I want little fingers in there!
I made Santa a snowflake mobile and filled his bath with plastic bubbles.
I jazzed up the cheap bath suite with bits of silver bling.
Once I make a toilet roll and holder all we need is Santa! I had Santa made for me by www.worldofmyownminiatures.co.uk about 15 years ago! Every Christmas I feel guilty that poor Santa is waiting for a bath!
Well, here he is!
Caught in the act - dropping his dirty clothes on the floor!

Enjoy your bath Santa!
