It's another little shed! Spring must be on it's way right? Although the snow outside(yes- I'm in Dallas, Texas and there's snow!) suggests otherwise. But I was in the mood to make a little dollhouse potting shed again.
I just love playing with all the little garden objects. I used leftover dollhouse pieces to create the little structure which stands 13 3/4" tall. 6 1/2" long for the house alone and 12 1/4" with the house and yard. 8 1/4" across.
The vegetable garden is 4 rows of clay mounds under coffee grounds(dirt).
The walkway is covered with sand gravel usually used for the bottom of candle jars. And my grass is moss. By the way, if your moss ever stiffens just give it a spritz with water and it will re-soften.
I bought the wagon and dipped it into paint stripper. Then I painted dots and roses and added rust(golden brown paint). The watering can is also a piece I bought and repainted. I made the crates. All the vegetables are air dry clay. The potatoes have a little coffee ground dirt on them.
I hand painted this little cardstock paper bunting banner. There's a little light under the porch.
The shovel is air dry clay. My hose is a piece of plastic kids use to make necklaces. I painted it with acrylic paint and made the end piece with hot glue painted silver.
Yes, that's a pie on the ledge. Maybe you get hungry while you garden? Maybe you have to keep a close eye on your baked goods? It's just cute so I had to put it there. It's air dry clay with some glitter that looks like sugar on top.
Here's the switch(it's that little white piece). The battery is also hidden under the vines.
This is birch strips as siding. I buy them at HobbyLinc
I made most of the things inside the shed.
The only things I did not make were the tools and toolbox.
The bags of dirt are actually just printed off Google image search. I think they are Walmart.com images. I just printed 2 pictures for each side of the bag and glued them together with Aleene's Tacky Glue. Let dry completely and fill. It actually worked. I thought they would not be fat enough. But they look good.
The window shade is actually a bamboo place mat. I cut it to size and whitewashed it. Then finished it off with strips of fabric.
I made the sink too. The sink basin is a little plastic part that came in packaging. You can use packaging from condiments too. I paint it with primer and then with silver. The spout is a thick wire piece. The handles are beads. All the curtains are sprayed with hairspray to have them look more realistic.

Here's little Lizzie enjoying life.
She's becoming a real model! And no, she does not like Gigie's company yet. Lizzie is not really the type to like pets. So I'm not very hopeful there. Lizzie likes her privacy!
And Miss Gigie not enjoying the outdoors. She hates outside. And she doesn't care for snow. I have to be really quick to take photos. She runs back inside right away. Which is an excellent thing! Don't worry this is my upstairs balcony so there's no chance of escapes or mishaps. Just a little 1 second stroll. LOL! She's growing like a sprout! And has a very, very big appetite. She's now 4 months old.
Thank you so much for the visit. I appreciate it so much!
