1/12th Scale Doll House Miniature Victorian Books x 13 - Jane Austen, Bronte Sisters etc
1/12th Scale Doll House Miniature Victorian Books x 13 - Jane Austen, Bronte Sisters etc

5.0 out of 5 stars Love It !, 10 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sweet ! This was my birthday present to myself, along with a teeny pair of horse head bookends, and it's on my miniatures shelf. Beautifully made and clear printing. Obviously, at the price, NOT an actual book - the description did make this clear, but I'd hate anyone to be disappointed because I hadn't made it clear also. If you're buying for a dolls' house, these are perfect either on a shelf or on a coffee table.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money but......., 10 Mar. 2017

The back is a little rigid and rubbed the back of my son's ankle at first, necessitating two pairs of socks for thre first couple of weeks, but as he usually puts them on and off without properly unlacing them, they are now softer. However, for the price, they are a good quality shoe and when he leaves them on a bus in a week or so, I shall certainly buy them again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Don't Know..., 4 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am now entering my sixth decade and I'm aware that there's a lot of books I haven't yet read which I need to be getting on with. So why did I just read this for the fourth time? It isn't a great liking for Ms Shriver's writing: I rushed to read more of her work after I first read this one and stopped after two - not that they were bad, but I expected great, and they weren't that. I wouldn't say that I enjoyed 'Kevin', but I found the book remarkable and unique, and the feeling of profound unease with which it left me has never quite gone away.
Shriver raises questions about responsibility, about parenting and about good and evil, and makes the reader feel that there are answers, but we're just not getting them. So, I read the book every couple of years and I don't get any closer. Sometimes I identify with the mother, always I'm irritated by the father, never do I find the linchpin where disaster could have been averted.
At the first reading I was teaching disturbed/disturbing adolescents. Now I have a difficult teenage son. There has to be a linchpin - doesn't there?

I bought this for my son, who has only worn it once and found it suitably creepy-looking but a bit warm, so he's saving it for the colder weather.


FOLDING DESIGNER DRAINER

2.0 out of 5 stars THINK AGAIN, 7 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It doesn't hold much washing up. Plates drop off the end : you have to start stacking from about an inch in. The bottom tray has no slope so the drain hole has to be pulled right out over the sink. It is therefore in the way and if I knock it the hole slips back and water runs under the tray onto the worksurface and then drips down th door and onto the floo (or my feet). I have a similar, cheaper rack and tray also purchased through Amazon, but it only comes in red, white and black . I bought this one becuse it is green, which is the only good point.
I wouldn't recommend it unless you want to stand it on a draining borad - in which case, why would you need a drip tray ? - and only wash up about five things at a time.

5.0 out of 5 stars EVERY HOME SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST ONE, 7 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Utterly beautiful. It took me WEEKS to decide, because all the designs are lovely. Also, as I found when I received it, the shape is seductive : it's really nice just to hold. I don't know how much time one can sanely spend holding a soap dish, but it's definitely worth a few !

The best black humour. I've loved Addams since I was seven. My uncle showed the cartoons to me and I showed my son - now I'm laying in the volumes I haven't got so that they're here for the next generation.
