Sweet Cottage, My New Custom Dollhouse

I finished one of three 1/12th dollhouse projects. This one is called Sweet Cottage. It has battery operated lights and a working fireplace.




This dollhouse is very much like one I did previously for Cami- The Tranquil Nordic Retreat.  It was so fun to do a moss roof, I had to do that one more time. 



This is a deep front porch at 5 1/2"(13.97cm).



The chimney is concrete carved into bricks.



The moss is sold as sheets.  The window here is one I bought. I just love the molding on it.






 A roaring fire!  These are LED lights that flicker. All the lights are battery operated and the switches and batteries are hidden in the chimney.
 I painted the ceiling on this one too. It's scrolls that are white, blue and grey.




 A little Louis bed dollhouse size made with window screen.


This house in in my Etsy shop.

Now my next project is a little potting shed 1/12 scale.  See you next time!

  17. Caroline...
    So charming and lovely. I am thinking Beckett and maureen need a secret hideaway like that to rekindle the romance once things settle down a bit. ; )
    Best to you,

  18. Simply beautiful. Such a warm and cozy space. As always the hand painted touches are incredible. I particularly love the way you painted the ceiling, I can imagine lying in the bed staring up at that for hours.

  22. What a charming little house! I think I am in love with the moss roof. Just lovely! And it adds a freshness to it. I also love the weathered brown/gray door color and the mix of patterns on the bed. I also like how you used different style windows yet they all work together! Great job as per usual!

The interior is FULL of Charming details that have become your personal signature. I love your painted ceiling and the chandelier, the wonderful furnishings and the lovely little French style bed. All of your soft furnishings are Ravishing and perfectly compliment both the inside as well as the out!
