A Gift From Carolyn!

This has been such a busy time building dollhouse after dollhouse.  In the mist of all the construction, came a lovely surprise from Carolyn Robbins of Warm Heart Bears.  It's Octavia!
Carolyn contacted me and told me she had made me a gift.  The package arrived quickly.  When I opened the box I couldn't believe Carolyn's generosity! This little treasure is the most precious bear ever.  The little bear is exquisitely made with gorgeous detailing.
The bear is weighty. So you can stand her up.  She is made of mohair. So luxurious! Look at that face! So Sweet!! Everything is done to perfection on the bear. The nose is glittery so it has a realistic look. The shading is so artistic. Nothing was left undone. Carolyn thought of everything.
 Her little paws are just adorable.
 The tiny crochet flower in her ear has a delicate pearl.
Octavia is fully jointed. Her little nose is so sweet. And her eyes are glass.

She arrived with her little wooden chest, a round pillow for her to sit on, a beautiful envelope with all her info and a velvet pumpkin!
Perfectly perfect!
This little lady stands 4 1/2" tall. So she actually fits in my 1/12 scale dollhouses.

I appreciate this gift so much Carolyn! This little girl is exactly my style. And I know that's no accident. Thank you again and again!
I know you want one!

Bienvenue Cottage Custom Dollhouse

Bienvenue Cottage is a custom dollhouse I just finished.  This one is all white and grays.
This house is 20  1/4" tall x 15" deep x 12 3/4" across.
 The exterior is a combination of plaster and concrete.

 I added a rose and leaves(heavy cardstock) to my pre made door. I covered them with Modge Podge, let dry and paint the whole door.

The corner stones are done with premix concrete. I just use an artist spatula and freehand a stone shape.

This cottage is currently in my Etsy shop: cinderellamoments.etsy.com
Of course, I'm already working on the next house. I'm also trying to upload more roses and furniture to my shop on Etsy. It's non stop here at Cinderella Moments! One of these days I'll get caught up.😀
I hope you are all well and enjoying your minis.
big hugs💗❤💗,
