Haha....My Neighbour Thought I'd Shrunk My Curtains!

One of the most unique and beautiful little houses that I have ever handled here at KT Miniatures has come in and will very shortly be put up for sale. (Note that I said "little house" and not dolls house.......are you intrigued)?  Actually, it's not that "little" either but hey ho.

However,  the little teeny antique lace curtains were disgustingly dirty from over 80 years of dirt and I felt like heaving even just looking at them....sooooo, I embarked on trying to give them a bit of a wash. Good old "Vanish"....after two attempts of cautiously using the proper way and following the correct instructions,  in desperation I more than doubled the dose along with many hours of soaking. (If that had failed it was to be bleach)!
Finally I had a very pleasing result!
However...my very confused elderly neighbour, even though used to seeing odd things hanging on my washing line, thought I had shrunk my net curtains....(forgetting that I never had any net curtains in the first place)! Haha.....

The beautiful house will be revealed in all it's glory very shortly........
