Yellow for Fall

Here's a country island table that I made.  I mixed colors that I had to create this hue.  It has a soft creamy yellow tone to it.  I think it adds a fall touch to my mini scene.  Thank you for stopping by!

Here's a peek at my room box that I've been slowly working on. Happy Fall season to everyone.  I love this weather.  Hope you all enjoy!

Hello Everyone,

I've been busy taking care of my boys, so I haven't posted in awhile.  I do dabble in my miniatures with all this chaos.  Lately I've been collecting dollhouse vintage items.  I've been inspired by Cynthia's Cottage and Kim's Bakery, which I have displayed some of their lovely pieces in my photos. 

I stained the kitchen island in cherry.  I was thinking of adding some color and distressing it, but I thinking I will hold off on that.  I really do like the way it looks with all my simple white accessories. 

Here are some General Electric miniatures I found.  I have to replace the broken faucet, but other than that it does add lovely charm to my home. 

A beautiful vintage hutch I also recently aquired.  The quality of dollhouse vintage miniatures are so much better than current finds.  The workmanship and detail they put in the past is exceptional.  Wish they made new miniatures that way, but I guess that makes rare finds like this much more special.  I'm debating whether or not to paint this one. 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!  The picture below is a picture of my newest addition.  Little Adam at 4 months.  He's a whopping 17 pounds and so lovable!  Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

HELLO and happy Friday!

Hello everyone!  I have been MIA for awhile because of my pregnancy.  Once I found out I was pregnant  April of last year and I had all the first trimester woes hit me at once.  Everything I loved to do made me nauseous, the outdoors, certain foods, and even my miniature dollhouse hobby.  It was so weird and sad at the same time.  I had to pack away and hide all my minis to keep the room from spinning.  I defiantly had an inkling that I was going to have a boy.  ;O)

Last September while cleaning out the house to make room, I pulled out all my minis and my unfinished dollhouse.  I told myself, if I don't finish it now I don't think I ever will with two boys running around.  In September I slowly started to finish my project.  I'd say it's very similar to all my other dollhouses.  Shabby chic meets french country is my main focus here.  I was going to do fall colors and give it a warm cozy feel, but I had purchased wallpaper back in April for spring.  C'est la vie.

I'm still decorating but here are a couple of pictures of the inside.  The upstairs bedroom, which is my favorite part of the house, has a shabby chic/romantic feel.  I love the picture of the wedding dress which was painted by Caroline.  The lovely chair is from Mariza Moran, which sits perfectly next to the dresser by Cynthia.  Also sweet cake by Anna and the beautiful cottage bed by Sandy.   The second picture below is a glimpse of the kitchen which I'm still working on.  I hope to post more real soon!  

Also, I had my son in November.  He's already 2 months and a whopping 14 pounds!!!  I'm proud of my big baby boy!
