for months.. maybe years.. Ive been seeing christmas dollhouses, including Kim K's sweet little house. I have these two old beat up old houses that Ive had for about 25 or more years. Every so often I would drag them out to play with a little bit, but they really have never been anything special.
So for quite some time Ive been saying that I wanted to turn one into a christmas house and one into a halloween house.
Then, Yesterday Kim posted pics of her sweet little christmas house and it was at just the right time! Inspiration struck and stuck! I had nothing else planned and nothing else I was dying to do, It was snowing out and I didnt need to or want to go anywhere, so I dug my little houses out!
I actually was going to use the other house, but then decided that one would be better suited to halloween and this one for christmas. so I played around with it most of the day and night!.
I had everything I needed except the white felt, but my hubby was a good boy and went out in all that snow to walmart to buy some for me. My little house needed a snowy roof and icicles. dont you think?
Its a tiny little house, only 4 little rooms. someday I would love to have a big old victorian doll house. I havent been in a very long time, but the strong museum in rochester has a lot of dolls and doll houses on display that are really freaken awesome. now Im wanting to go!
I used to go to some doll and miniature shows, years ago, but they dont have them in our area anymore. theres a doll and bear show once a year, that has a couple booths that sell small things, but thats about it.
I dont dare go looking on etsy or ebay for stuff.. I cant afford another obsession! lol!
I could easily get carried away!
Anyways, I enjoyed myself yesterday cleaning this one up and making it all christmasy! Now the question is, what ever will I do with it? I guess I'll have to make room for it in my craft room.. which is already overflowing with STUFF.
oh how I love stuff! all kinds of stuff.. (God, please dont let me turn into a hoarder..thank you and amen)
look a little cloche! sort of big for the table, but really, who cares!?
You know Im going to end up on etsy and ebay now that Ive done this one.. I'll be itching to do the halloween one. Im going to need to buy some STUFF! even for this one, Im thinking a little buffet with some christmas cupcakes and gingerbread house...
And really, probably best if I dont let my mind wander to the halloween one yet! but on the other hand, I could start collecting things for it now... right?
So I had fun yesterday and finally did something that Ive been talking about doing for a long time. I used just what I had on hand, but somethings I will redo, like the stockings on the fireplace, I want to make real ones and the gifts, I will make real ones.. as well as a few other things.
Such fun! I hope you enjoy my little christmas house!
