Shabby Shop - Another Make Over!

The Post Office went through some changes!  It's now a Shabby Shop custom dollhouse.
 I changed the sign and added a bike, Digitalis flowers, a mushroom crate, a planting crate and a pink sparkly pumpkin. 

 I love making mushrooms.  It's my new favorite thing. I use air dry clay to make them. The dirt on the bottom is coffee grounds.
 This shop gets a pink bike.
 Here's a little seedling sprouting in a pot.
 I aged the sign by simply sanding it down.
 The sides are the same as before.

 Inside is where I had some fun.
 I made most of the stuff in here. I didn't make the metal table near the chair or the metal chair near the bed.

 The fabric department.  I made 2 aprons hanging on the side.


This was an Altoid tin. I use it as a suitcase. I printed the little Blythe boxes off Pinterest. I knew I'd find a good place to put them.
When I closed the tin it scraped the paint. It looks just like a hole in the upholstery!  Love it!
 I use hair spray to make the curtains stiff.
Someone's working on a new little project for the shop here.
This dollhouse is in my Etsy shop. It measures: 15 1/2" tall x 14 1/2" deep x 11 1/2" across and the
interior is 11"across x  10 1/8" deep x 14 1/4" tall.
Thanks for coming in!

  4. We must be on the same wavelength Caroline... I just started a re-do of my doll house too and posted it this morning. It's not as cute or as done as yours though. I love all your little details. Love the "suitcase". I don't know how you do it girl!!!

  10. It is all so adorable, Caroline! I think there soon will be a very lucky person, who will be living in this wonderful and cosy house :)!
    I love that kind of 'accidents' what happened with your suitcase: you damaged the paint whilst closing, that kind of things are such great finds, I think ;)!
    Hugs, Ilona

  21. Hi Caroline! This is another Wonderful transformation of what was already cute to something that is now REALLYREALY CUTE! :D The interior has so much charm and personality and I like the way that you have re-purposed the mail boxes on the wall to accommodate the tiny bits of fabric china and knickknacks that are all so artfully displayed. One of my very favorite things is the comfy casual bed linen that is gracefully rumpled. It gives the impression of having been recently used, even though I don't Believe that the store owner would Ever be asleep on the job. :)) But on such a warm and lazy day such as today, perhaps she could
    (just briefly mind you), lay down for a moment and rest her eyes?
    Zzzzzzzzz...........
