House Warming

  We have finished the dollhouse!!!

    After long hours of sewing, glueing, painting, crocheting, gathering minuscule objects to fill the house with, and lots more glueing, it is finally completed!


Here's a before picture of the entire house.

The finished product.

Note: the scale of the house is 1/12, meaning 1ft = 1in.

We shall start the tour on the main floor. 

Welcome to the kitchen!

Chia seeds, Lemon Pepper, and Caraway seeds fill the tiny glass bottles above the stove.

Moving on to the Parlor…

Gwendolyn is very diligent at practicing.  :)

Man of the house.

Because of the angle of the wall in this room, the lovely family portrait Becca made, the stuffed pheasant, and the fireplace are all only visible from the window. That's why the picture is blurry along the side.

Shall we go upstairs?

There is actually some very nice little stairs tucked away in the back corner, and you can see the railing in the background of this picture.

That little glass jar is filled with bath salts.

Perfume bottles made from beads, little soaps, and fluffy towels fill the shelves.

Continuing, we enter the Master Bedroom.

I (Beth) made the bed frame with wood beads and wire. It is supposed to imitate the look of an old-fashioned spool bed. (you can google that to see pictures)

The little cameo on the dresser is from a clip on earring that was missing its match.

Now we will go to the last room, the nursery. (Also known as Gwendolyn and Robespierre's bedroom)

The bed canopy was made with a simple frame of cardboard covered in fabric.

Isn't the collection of toys neat? The book covers are copies of actual Victorian children's books.
