to doll box, to dollhouse these days.
I work on these 3 things on 3 separate days.
The cross stitch roses are coming along beautifully,
( I will show a pic of that later)
If you have read my last post, you will remember this little
doll and the bed and quilt I made for it. As you can see,
I have done a bit more to complete the box.
I painted a little wooden dresser in the same colors as the quilt,
The little doily is a vintage crochet piece from my stash,
The little ball was all yellow, so I painted a red stripe and
a red flower onto it. The baby buggy
was all blue plastic, so I also painted it in white
with black details.
I decoupaged a little flower onto the dresser
and I made a very tiny bed and blanket for the tiny
baby doll in the buggy.
I added a miniature play rabbit, and I crocheted the gold
yellow flower pillow for the bed.
I added the decorative paper and lace onto the top
facing of the box and fixed straps for an umbrella ( I glued flowers and ric rac to)
a little hair brush and a little tiara.
The doll has a pretty dress, so I decided I would make a little coat
out of some pretty flannel scraps that I had.
I really enjoy making doll clothes.......do you?
I need to make a few more pieces of clothing for the
and now.........if anyone should open the box............
they will have a delightful surprise!
Some of you might remember a post I showed a while back of
a homemade dollhouse I picked up at a junk sale. I had
originally decorated the kitchen in red and white.
I soon discovered that the dollhouse had an odor. I worked
and worked for weeks to get rid of the odor.........finally finding that
"Kilz" took the odor all away. But I had to coat the entire dollhouse
and redo the kitchen. I decided this time on a cheery yellow
farmhouse kitchen. I still have things to do in this room
and many other rooms to go. It will be a patient process.
Do you ever find that you have so many things that you love to create with
your hands .........that you know you will never have enough time to do them all?
I think I will have to be 150 years old if were to ever work on and finish the projects I love to
do. How about you?
