Back to Work! The Start of Figaro's Cottage

I'm getting back to construction finally! I'm still on crutches but feeling much better.  Thank you all for your sweet comments! It was so nice to read! hugs♥
This is the beginning of Figaro's Cottage which will be Jen's new dollhouse.  Figaro was Jen's cat.  She's already bought a little felt figurine of Figaro to sit on the front porch.  I cut this house out of wood from Lowe's. It's  3/16 x 2 x 2 Lauan Plywood
Before I started up the building again, I worked on furniture and accessories for this house. I could only work a little bit at first because I had to stay off my leg after I sprained my calf muscle 3 1/2 weeks ago. I've never taken so long to complete a project before. But Jen is so patient and understanding. I'm truly blessed with the best customers!  I have 2 more projects waiting on me with equally patient customers.  But I'm back! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Welcome back Caroline. I hope you are well on the mend. I'm loving all the floral painted items.

  2. Se ve un comienzo fantástico y esos muebles que irán en la casa son preciosos!!!!!!
    Espero que tu pierna cada vez vaya mejor y te recuperes lo antes posible!!!

  3. Hi Caroline! That little house will be another winner! I enjoyed looking at all the lovely things you have prepared for its interior! I hope you are feeling better and that it's not still painful! Take care!

  4. Dear Caroline, I´m sooo glad to here you´r feeling better and start building again :)
    It sounds very fun, Figaro's Cottage and I hardly can´t wait to see it finished - I´m not very patient hahaha)- but I can understand that your custumers are, because no one else builds such gorgeous dollshouses like you :)
