Sprinkled With Love Cottage Dollhouse and Ballerina Cottage

I worked on some details for "Sprinkled With Love Cottage."  
On the sign I added pink, fine glitter and shadows for the house and cupcake. That's the top of the white mantel you see under the sign. I tried something new for this mantel, I used a real ribbon tied into a bow and painted. It turned out fantastic! It hardened perfectly and now looks like a wood carving. I aged the mantel  with a brown ink pad.
I made the chandeliers too.
I'll try to put this little pink one on the front porch.
The front will have this little bay window.
This is the front door. I used a Melissa Frances heart embellishment.
On the other side I stamped a crown in brown ink.
The wood floor is going in. These are Popsicle sticks.
The interior is completely coated with plaster.

I also started another dollhouse. I doodled this house a while back.
I have no idea how close to it I can get, but I'm going to try. This will be the Ballerina Cottage dollhouse.
I have just put the walls and floor together after having cut out my windows and door.
For this one, I imagine a ballerina's tiny place. Very sophisticated in cream, ocre and grays. Maybe a wall of mirrors and ballet bar., ballet paintings and photos.  Can you envision it?  I'm so excited about this one too!


  1. Oh yes, I can totally envision the Ballerina House! That's going to be amazing I'm sure!!! How in the world do you keep thinking these things up? It's amazing! Did you read a lot of fairytales as a little girl? It's always so exciting to see what you come up with in that magical mind of yours!!!

  2. Wow! You're overflowing with creativity, Caroline! It's a lot to take in. My head is spinning just looking at all the details. I'm looking forward to the next phase.
