Next Dollhouse: A Tiny Victorian Cottage

I've started my next dollhouse! This is the New York Times' "A Tiny Victorian Cottage." The link was sent to me by a Facebook friend(Heather Pertula).

I don't know how close to it I can get, but I'll do my best. I've already cut out the door and windows. I still have to do the roof and porch. I made and painted the wainscoting. It's the same as the beach house. I separated cardboard and kept the corrugated part.
I've also tried my hand at chandelier making....

This little cottage has three! We'll see if I have the courage to make more! 
I've also been busy making paper houses. Some I called "butterfly houses":

And others I made with this gorgeous paper I found:

And I tried these blue strawberries. I made them from a soft velvet. Like the ones for a jumpsuit.

  2. Your houses are so adorable. I haven't had time lately to visit with being to tired. I really should be in bed now, but I wanted to tell you that I love your little beach house. The chandlier is really unique. Have a wonderful 4th of July. We will be with family for the 4th.

  3. That will be so cool!
    Happy 4th to you :)

  4. I can't wait to see, let me know, please!
