Pink Cottage

Here's a small dollhouse I made for a close friend of mine.  She loved my new hobby and admired my collection of miniatures, so I decided to give her a home to start her own collection. 

I made the table and curtains.  I also painted the little hutch with soft pinks, green, and white.  I added some crackle to it as well to soften the colors a bit more.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Big Hugs,

Rustic Cabinet

Recently I've fell in love with the shabby rustic country look.  I saw some cabinets with the use of miniature chicken wire and thought it was a creative idea.  I shopped around to find one and noticed that it's not easy to find and if I do, it's a bit pricey.  So I did some brain storming and decided to decorate my own rustic cabinet for my shabby chic dollhouses.  On this piece I stained it in a cherry finish, added some antiquing glaze to age, sanded it and then covered it with clear varnish.  Gluing the aluminum caging was a bit tricky but not too hard.  This is my first time to do this so excuse the imperfections. 

It's not completely finished.  I still need to wallpaper the back and add some shelves, but so far this is what I have.  It's been really fun making this piece and I've decided to work on another one.  Updates and new cabinet photos to come.

Thank you for stopping by!

March is here!

Ahhh...March has arrived!  I'm honestly more of a fall/winter person, but for 2012 I will make an exception.  This month "The Hunger Games" the movie will open.  I have been a big fan of the trilogy since fall of last year.  Reading is one of my other hobbies.  I love books.  They take me to another world.

I'm currently reading the trilogy again and it's as good as the first time!  As a fan and  a miniature addict, I had to find "The Hunger Game" trilogy books down to scale.  I successfully found someone that sells them as charms.  I contacted the seller to asked if she could make them without the charm attachments.  She kindly accommodated and here they are!

Aren't they just adorable!

Have a wonderful spring everyone and happy Hunger Games!
