Someday My Prince Will Come Cottage Dollhouse

Today, I worked on the little topiary that will go on either sides of the front door.
The first one, all white , is how these came. They are actually place card holders for weddings. They have a slot at the to that I filled with a bit of plaster.
The second one, I painted the roses pink and pot terra cotta.
The third one is almost done. I added little leaves. I found this greenery at the craft store with  little leaves that are dollhouse size.
Here they are all done. Super cute right?
Inside, the walls downstairs are painted a faint pink. Hard to see here. It's dark and rainy so no good shots. I did the "tin" ceiling with my hot glue method. I draw a pattern on poster board. I follow the pattern with the hot glue. It gets a thick coat of white, then silver and finally rust color.  The chandelier is in place so the floors can now go in.


  1. Hi Caroline,
    So good to hear from you hon. Yes, you are right, my daddy was a tough
    nut to crack, but the Lord always get His man, especially when they have people praying for them. we actually prayed for my whole family for over
    20 years, but all that have passed are with Jesus. What joy that brings to my heart! Some of them were very difficult relationships here, but I look forward to having perfect relationships with them when I get to heaven. what a hope we have in Jesus.

    So how are you sweetie??? Are you ready for Christmas or still working on it. I am still working on it, but at a slow pace so I am not stressed and have to say I just love

    Hope you are enjoying this wonderful Season of the year, it really is the most wonderful time of the year.............

    Merry Christmas to you and yours hon, Blessings abundant,

  8. Well pop them on a plate and I'd eat 'em! Those topiary trees are just divine! Looks for all the world like mini cakes.

    Looking forward to the next stage.

  9. Oh...the soft pink wasn't hard to see, the photos were great, even with it being dark and rainy! And I can't even BEGIN to talk about the topiaries! For pete's sake, I would have taken them in white and, here you are, you are making them even more special and artistic and beautiful! If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times, "YOU ARE THE MASTER OF DOLLHOUSES!"
