A new home for the Ainsleys.........

And the house they chose is..........



HOUSE #3!   The Ainsleys moved into their new home 2 months ago and everyone is settling in nicely.




 Let's take a closer peek and see what everyone is doing....



Well, we sort of knew Nevil would be sitting in front of the TV, didn't we?




If we look closer, we can see that Fiona's favorite spot is on the second step where she can read her book or daydream while gazing out of the window....






Annie's in her favorite place...her nice big kitchen...once more looking for a new recipe to make a surprise treat for her family.
     


                          
Little Sophie likes to play in the new big room she shares with Fiona and Cecil.....





and if we peek into the other bedroom, we will see little Rory napping in his crib....even while Sophie "plays" her piano.

   
                                    
                   

Nevil has rearranged the washer and dryer so it will be easier to switch loads of clothes from the washer to the dryer when he is doing the laundry.





...and there is Cecil, actually sitting on the floor playing instead of balancing on top of a table.  And of course his favorite place to play is right behind Dad's chair....while Dad is trying to watch TV. The Ainsleys are enjoying their new home!
    



The furniture was made in Germany and sold by the FAO Schwarz Toy Store of NYC. The kitchen furniture was recently identified on Diepuppenstubensammlerin's blogspot as being made by Bodo Henning. The maker of the other furniture is unknown, but it was closely copied from the American Strombecker furniture of the 1930-50s. Rory's crib is a Lisa of Denmark product,  the bunkbed may be by Vero,  and the washer and dryer are a salt and pepper set!
