Well here are the pictures of Harrods at last and I've had a lot of trouble trying to take them. The weather is turning here and I've had to dodge showers to try and take photos over the last few days.
As I've said I got the idea to create Harrods from the colour scheme I used on Claridges which turned out so nice I just had to expand the building. Adding a food hall and a ladies and gentleman's department to the original restaurant I've created this larger building. I've built a central spiral staircase to give a grand feeling to the store in keeping with the stunning original building. To this I've added a large skylight in the dinning room so the staircase can be viewed from above as well as being an attractive feature in the room. I also decided not to fix the large Harrods sign to the roof that way it can turn around to face the viewer.
I'm currently working on some major changes to this blog. When I first created it I didn't really know what I was doing so I ended up creating a "page" for all of my large items. Several years ago you could only have 20 pages per blog, so I split my blog across several eg. Victorian, Nautical, Medieval. Now I know what I'm doing a little bit better I'm working on moving all of that content back into one blog site so everything can be tagged and sorted to make it easier for visitors to find what they're looking for. So the other blog sites will be closed down one by one and you'll be redirected to the correct page here. Please forgive me for any broken links etc that might occur while I'm sorting it all out :)
I enjoy creating custom Playmobil pieces, unfortunately I don't have the space to keep some of them. Every so often I will have new items for sale as I change my displays, these extra pieces I will list on my Emporium shop site.
