My First Book and The 4th of July Dollhouse!

I published a book!
I always wanted to write a children's book. Finally, I did it! I used my little clay dolls, the 4th of July Dollhouse and the " Doughnut Shop" Dollhouse. This is a story about 3 little girls who open a lemonade stand. It's a sweet story you'll love reading to your daughter or grand daughter. I kept it to 26 pages. Perfect bedtime reading size!!
I shot the pictures with my sister. We had a lot of fun playing with dolls. If you want to order a copy you can click  the link on the top right sidebar.

 It has really cute doll pictures and a good message. Very girly, very positive and simple enough for any little girl to understand.
And the 4th of July Dollhouse is all done! Here are the pictures:


This house is available at Cinderella Moments

    Do you think you'll ever make a flower shop or have you made one in the past and I missed it?

  8. Hello Caroline,
    Many congratulations for the book, I am sure it will be a success, and that all little girls will love it!
    The house is beautiful! Perfect as always ..

  9. Another winner, Caroline! When I look at that last pic, there appears to be such an atmosphere of celebration on that porch.

    It makes me want to join in. I love the staircase. The bedroom is so sweet! I am starting to love pastel green as much as I love pink. I like the mailbox. It's unique! I love the assortment of colours you have chosen. Like the black and white floor with the turquoise of the island, and the different greens on the second floor with the pink chandelier.

    I will be getting your book soon. What a fabulous idea you had to use your dolls and your houses to illustrate it.

  10. Congratulations on the book Caroline. What a wonderful achievement. The 4th of July house is gorgeous. I love the outside of it.
    Hugs Maria
