Holly Jolly Christmas Cottage Custom Dollhouse

It's Christmas!
Well, it's Christmas here at Holly Jolly Christmas Cottage!
 This is a 1/12 scale house. This house is 15" deep x 12 1/2" across x 16 1/2" tall.
Inside is 14" tall x 10 1/4" across x 11" deep.

 I found this snowman at Hobby Lobby.  He had a weird hat on. So I had to change that!
 The little number on the door is Tim Holtz.  I usually find these at Michael's.
 The greenery and berries are from Hobby Lobby. I think I also found the sleigh at Hobby Lobby. It was red.
 The lights are from Evan Designs: https://www.modeltrainsoftware.com/collections/hobby-leds/products/colored-light-string-for-minatures-and-dioramas

 The walls are plaster aged with brown ink.
 The bricks are done with ready mixed concrete.
The snow I use is called Snow-Tex by DecoArt. I found it at Michael's.

 This is a bottlebrush tree from Hobby Lobby. It was on a long wire stick, on top of a wood block. I cut the stick down and made my own wood box so I could hide the lights' battery and switch. I found a gold bead garland and small pink fabric roses to decorate the tree. All the rest is beads.
 I made the bed from bass wood you can find at Hobby Lobby.
 The chair is made with that same wood.

Thanks for the visit and Merry Christmas!  :)

  8. Oh I absolutely love this........so darling and love that it is all done up for
    Christmas......another winner as always.
    Hope this finds you and yours all doing well. We just got back from visiting our
    daughter and finally got to see her beach cottage in person. It is just adorable. They are finally going to get to stay there for 4 days next week.
    Just in time for their 8th Anniversary. and another week later
    on this month. So they are very excited.
    Also liked your Wisteria cottage too....very subtle, sweet and charming. My
    Moms favorite flowers was Wisteria, and I love it too, haven't had the blessing
    of enjoying it's aroma in a long time, but I remember how wonderful they are,
    in beauty and fragrance.
    You take care sweetie,
    Love and blessings,
