Paper Sailboat

 Remember the bathtub I made for the Gypsy Trailer? I told you I knew what to do with it! It's a Dream Boat! I listed it in my shop.
This is what it looked like in the trailer. Well I decided to go with another tub. And I knew this one would become a sailboat.
The masts are two old paintbrushes. They are ones I used so much that there was hardly any bristles left! I always keep them because I love the worn look with all the paints . I painted the sail just like the outside of the Gypsy Trailer.
 This is the back.

A little paper clay cupcake at the top for sweet dreams! I just shaped this by hand. No molds here!

These are little fabric roses(see my rose tutorial) on crepe paper ruffles.

 I think it looks better as a sailboat then a bathtub.

Gypsy Travel Trailer Dollhouse: All Done!

This was absolutely the most eclectic mini I've done so far. It's already sold to Debra who is creating a vacation theme I think! She already has the beach house. Thanks Deb!

Here's the original Magnolia Pearl Airstream...
 And this is mine. I had to leave off the name since I never heard from Pearl. I thought about putting Cinderella Moments but then I decided to leave it without the name all together.
I also left off the license plate. It's new owner will have to put on their own state plates! LOL!

I put the light switch and battery in the air conditioning unit.

Gypsy Travel Trailer Dollhouse: Lights!

Two of the chandeliers light up. One in the front and one in the bathroom. I connected them to a battery and switch that are on the top of the trailer.

I made a pink chandelier to put above the daybed and a little sconce for the side of the door. These don't light up.
I tried to contact Pearl from Magnolia Pearl a couple of times. I want her permission to use her name since it is the name of her business. So far I haven't heard from her. I started painting the outside of the trailer. I'll wait as long as I can to paint a name on it.

I met Gloria through my Etsy shop. She ordered some clothespins . Gloria lives in Connecticut and writes a blog called The Little Red House With the White Porch.
                             Here's Gloria!

She was so excited to get the clothespins she decided to post about them!
You'll love Gloria's blog. Especially her quest to win a new washer and dryer! She's a funny lady.
Thanks for the wonderful post Gloria and taking the time to link up all my pages!

Gypsy Travel Trailer Dollhouse

I'm nearing the end of the interior construction!  The bathtub turned out pretty well.

I love the patina color. The faucets are made of wire. The toughest part of this faucet was waiting for the glue to dry.

So I chose the metal baking pan for the tub. I have other plans for the other tub.
 I made the counter piece and a little painting.

Here's the painting(signed of course!)

 And the counter. I had to switch things around a little in my trailer. I put this counter on the left wall. In the original Magnolia Pearl Airstream there is a shelf on this side. But I thought this piece would fit better.

I Painted the scroll at the top. The rest is pieces of pretty papers. The red ones are actually pictures of Persian rugs.

This chandelier is one of the two that will light up.

These curtains and the ones separating the room have been sprayed with hairspray(a tip from Liberty Biberty) so they stay in stiff, in  place.
