How I’m Keeping Track of My Dollhouse Projects

Confession: I’ve got a few too many dollhouse projects going on. I find it’s comforting to have a stash of perpetual projects I can sink myself into, but it also feels good to finish some once in a while too. I love planning and design, and I’ve made a few customized planning and tracking pages for… Continue reading How I’m Keeping Track of My Dollhouse Projects

My Dollhouse Projects, Room Boxes

Making The Music Room Box

My plan for this project was to create a room inspired by one of my favorite wee chairs in my collection. "The Music Room" chair is from the Willit's Take-a-Seat collection by Raine. The Room Box I started with a basic nook box that I found on sale. I built the box, and measured some… Continue reading Making The Music Room Box

Stuck on Shingles and the Floor

I’m feeling accomplished today. OOTD for dollhouse shenanigans I finally set aside a chunk of time to stick a few much needed shingles up on Plumbrook Cottage. I also reattached some trim pieces. https://youtu.be/skmGKQmmuHE Prior to the shingle shenanigans, I pulled up the upholstery from my grandpa’s old couch to use as carpeting. I gave… Continue reading Stuck on Shingles and the Floor

If anyone out there is working on one of these now too, please come and find me so we… Continue reading Don’t send me flowers, send me craft supplies

Domino’s House for Destitute Kitties, My Dollhouse Projects

If you Give a Cat a Dollhouse

As usual, something that started out as a joke is now a reality. I put together one of the tiny house kits I found on eBay, and let my cat check it out after I had finished the build. Obviously, he can’t really play with this house unsupervised, but I still called it Domino’s House.… Continue reading If you Give a Cat a Dollhouse

Dollhouse Flooring

Dollhouse flooring options as temporary collage art.. I finally got around to making the first harvest of fabric from my grandparent’s couch.. seen here with felt and floor scraps pulled from Plumbrook Cottage. The scraps all needed a good rinsing, but I’m happy to do it if it means they’ll stick around longer ❤️

Housewarming

Housewarming gifts 🏠❤️ It’s repurposed or rescued day for #summerminifun with @vintagedollhouseshop so I thought it would be a good day to wander over to the craft store for some dollhouse fixings. I am still torn about leaving the wallpaper in the Plumbrook Cottage. I want to keep it original, but may have to sacrifice… Continue reading Housewarming

Mind you, this is not long after I brought home the Plumbrook Cottage and started working on… Continue reading We Have a New House to Call Home!
