Dollhouse Revealed

Finally, one week before Christmas, I finished the dollhouse for little L. I think I was more excited that she was to open it. But then again she had no idea what it was until she opened it. All she could do when she saw it for the first time was gasp! And she just stood there staring at it.That was the best reaction a mom could hope for. Then came all the giggles and shrieks that little girls do when they are in utter amazement at their good fortune. I'm so glad I got it all on film. All the hard work and glue gun burns on my fingers were all worth it in the end.
This is a view from the front of the house. I modpodged between the shutters to give the outside a little bit of pattern.

This is a full view of the house, all set up. This is what little L saw when she opened it up.

These are the little babies in the attic. All the furniture and bunnies are from calico critters. Which are so adorable and all the furniture came with all the little accessories.

This is the little girl and boy room. I painted the stripes on the walls, made the curtains with stitch witchery, lollypop sticks and beads, made all the pillows out of felt and crocheted the rugs. Everything else was courtesy of calico critters.

A little close up.

This is the master bedroom. I modpodged the back wall, made the curtains and used a crocheted granny square for the rug. In this room I also made the bedding because the other bedding didn't match my decor :)

...the living room...

... and the kitchen...

This project was so much fun, and I am so happy that our family tradition will live on in my little girl. I hope she loves it and passes it on to her little ones in the future. (like S will be able to do).


Please leave us comments because it makes us feel all fuzzy inside.
