Chestnut Hill Cottage Custom Dollhouse

My last project of 2018! This is Chestnut Hill Cottage. 
It definitely has a light feel, fresh and airy but vintage too.

 This is the entry/living area. As soon as I put the bird wallpaper on I knew it was right. I love the look with the mantel and the beadboard near the door. 

Working mantel to keep the inhabitants warm. All the links for lights and products I use are listed on my resources page.
 This little rounded window space would be perfect for a cozy chair or a round table.
 A ship-lap wall is very necessary in a cottage!
 This wallpaper is cottage yet modern. I get wallpaper from Pinterest.
This is a fabric/burlap in cream on the wall.

I always hide the light components in the chimney. 
This house is in my Etsy shop if you are interested.

I hope everyone is having lots of fun getting ready for Christmas!  Thanks so much for the visit.

Maison Pain D'epices Custom Dollhouse

I did my annual Christmas gingerbread dollhouse.  In the past they have been traditional Christmas colors. This year pastels!
It's called "Maison Pain D'epices" and it's available in my Etsy shop.
The dollhouse is 20" tall x 19 1/2" deep x 16" across.
The house is made of wood. Then to get that cookie look we used plaster and paint.  The icing is all plaster piped out just like with real cookies.
There are lots of tiny ornaments available at craft stores.
The little wreath was a plain green one. I added loads of white paint and a pretty pink bow.
The snow flakes are ornaments for a tiny tree.(Hobby Lobby)
And I hunted for beautiful beads that could pass off as candy.

This house is furnished.
All the lights run on batteries and the switches are hidden in the chimney.
I had made the cupboard and island previously. I really wanted to see them in place in a house. This project was the perfect spot!

I put some lights on the Christmas tree.  I glued the switch to the base of the tree. These are nano lights.

I love the stairs because they look so vintage and charming.

Maison Pain D'Epices is available here:
I hope you love this sweet treat of a house! Back to commissions!   See you next time.
