Gypsy Cottage Dollhouse

I finished the Gypsy Cottage dollhouse.
 The interior is all decorated.
 The chandelier has a cool light bulb. I like the blue shade it has. It's very Gypsy!
I made the table from scrap wood. It's painted in a Kath Kidston style with roses and polka dots.
On the table there's the days mail: envelope, postcards, Victoria Magazine, and a newspaper. The flower is from Ines at Liliput Things. I had to put it there. It just fit! Thanks Ines!
My sister made this loaf of bread. It looks incredible. This is the first time she's made any miniature. If this is her beginners skill I wonder how brilliant her future creations will be!
The mantel wall is full of art work. It's very bohemian.
On the mantel I made a little house, a crown and a painted bowl.

The attic is very grungy.
There's a little bit of junk up here.
 The lanterns have little bulbs too. There's one cool and two warm color bulbs. I thought the mismatch was cute.
 I made the lanterns out of paper that I reinforced and punched holes in.

 The light switch is on the side of the house under vines.
And so is the battery.
It's available in my Etsy shop: CinderellaMoments
Thanks for the visit!

  27. Hi Caroline,
    Just wanted to say thanks for coming by and all your sweet comments about my porch. We have been enjoying it I have to say, course, not so much this week, cause I am still sick with this virus. I am feeling a lil better everyday, but still coughing my head off and running a low grade fever off and on, and all I have done is rest rest rest. Unfortunately, not
    sleeping well, cause of the coughing, if I get to sleep I sometime wake up coughing. All this coughing sort of wears you out too.
    I am so hoping my hubby does not get this, cause I would not want
    anyone to get is no fun!

    Well hon,
    You have a Very Happy Easter!
    Are you gonna get to see any family
    for the day or weekend?
    Hope whatever you do is loads of fun and is a lovely time.

    Special Easter Blessings to you hon,

  28. Oh my I have ooh-ed and aah-ed myself through this post, what an adorable cottage I wanna go live there!! Every detail is exquisite. I am honored to have an artist like you visit my blog, thank you for the sweet comment.
    Hugs, Jannet
