An Empty Dollhouse is Home

You may see an empty dollhouse, but I see much more I see a workshop to tinker and play A laboratory to test ideas that may be too big for the rest of the world A muse to inspire ideas for the future and a stage on which to perform A mailbox built with love… Continue reading An Empty Dollhouse is Home

Small Business

Day 23- A small business Today is small business day for #summerminifun hosted by @vintagedollhouseshop ❤️ My little business isn’t completely related to miniatures, but they show up for sale sometimes.

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 ❤️

I’ll bet someone out there has seen these gams before; do you know… Continue reading An Unknown Maker

Mom cleared out her office and went a hunting for my new furniture. I say new furniture, but if you know anything… Continue reading Let’s See What I’ve Got in My Drawers

My First Made Dolls

My babes. 🐷 🐈‍⬛ There was also a third bird doll who didn’t make it. Rest in pieces, Henrietta. 🐦 👻 I don’t remember exactly when I made these dolls; somewhere in between high school and Humboldt. That’s a good gap of time so my best guess is a range from 2006-2011. They have been… Continue reading My First Made Dolls

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
