Back From a Christmas at the Beach

  I took Lizzie to the beach for Christmas! There she is with her little coat on. It was a bit chilly that day. We went to Destin, Florida in the panhandle(north). We stayed at this gorgeous new neighborhood called Watersound.
We stayed at this gorgeous beach house.


The tree was missing a few lights. But there was almost nothing left in the stores. At least we found a tree!
The white sand looks like snow.
The last day we were there, there were huge waves. I had to stay very close to Lizzie. I didn't want her to get washed out to sea!
I tried to leave comments on blogs. But I've been getting messages that the comments are not being delivered. So if you haven't heard from me on your blog, it's just because I haven't been able to leave you a comment. I'll keep trying though! I hope this is not happening to anyone else. 

Lucille- I read your comment on the "Someday my Prince Will Come" house. What a wonderful story you told! Thank you! <3

Now back to work on some houses!!

Someday My Prince Will Come Cottage Dollhouse

The "Someday My Prince Will Come Cottage" is done.

Both turret roofs open. I figure if the light bulbs go one day you could still get to it and either add another battery light or a battery operated candle. The battery and switch are hidden in the right turret.
 I painted 3 rose pictures and put them in these little Melissa Frances frames.

 I made a day bed. The mattress is burlap wrapped. I knitted a little pink throw with a tattered pink ruffle. And I made 2 other pillows: a bolster pillow tied with twine and another with a brown crown stamp.

 There's room on the attic ledge for some old books or something.
 The lats are exposed with some plaster in rough shape!
 More wall "damage".

Night time!

This dollhouse is 16" across x 17" tall x 13" deep.
Inside the downstairs is 11" across x 10 1/4" deep x 8" tall.
The attic is about 6 1/2" tall.
This is going to Deana. Thank you Deana!
