This dollhouse hobby has become an obsession!
It's kind of crazy, but so fun.
There are quite a few people that are into this...actually, there are ALOT of people that are doing this!!
Some of the houses I've seen online are unbelievably beautiful!! It's amazing how much they look like "real" houses!!
I'm having fun chatting with Amy Chalmers about dollhouse miniatures. Amy has given me lots of information as to where I can find items to fill my house.
We both use The Big Book of a Miniature House by Lea Frisoni for making furniture, and fun pieces to decorate with.
My dollhouse is much like my real home....eclectic. Nothing matches...no theme.
If I do another house, I hope I do a better job of putting it together with a little more of a theme from room to room.
I have some things ordered to help make it look filled up.
Amy's dollhouse looks so nice, because every nook and cranny has something in it.
Plus, her house is done all in French decor and is just gorgeous!!
There's even beautiful woodwork around doorways, and windows adding to the authenticity of the look.
I was going for an old cottage look...
Well, I got the "old" part right. lol
I worked on window coverings, and cornice pieces yesterday.
That really helped to make it look more homey in here.
Cutting cubes of French soap for the sinks added some cuteness to the bath and kitchen.
The mister even carved out a sweet, primitive little rolling pin for the kitchen sink.
This bed is the first piece of furniture I made from the book by Lea.
The slanted ceilings remind me of our attic bedrooms here at our cottage.
This is the other bed made from Lea's book.
This will be the garden room.
Right now it seems to be a catch-all room.
The screen door was made from some wood scraps my friend Gisele gave me, along with the little wood box that the bunny is sitting in.
Thank you for stopping by my tiny house.
Have a great weekend.
