4th of July Dollhouse

The wiring for this dollhouse arrived a couple of days ago. I've also been playing around with making accessories.
I made the little island with left over bits of wood and the bead board on it is a tiny ridged cardboard. The towel bar and scroll that support the top are wire.
I made a few towels too.
Behind the island is a whole wall of shelves.
The chandelier is crystal seed beads and 2 rusty tin stars.
Upstairs I made a pink chandelier with pink roses.
The front also has an old rusty chandelier. I painted a rocking chair black and sculpted some rocks on the concrete foundation.
Here's all the wiring and switch. I think I'll hide in in a fake dormer or chimney.
Now I'll need to finish the wood floor upstairs and shingle the roof. Thanks for dropping in!


  1. What a great idea to use the rusty stars in the downstairs chandelier! This cottage rocks! I'm looking forward to seeing more! :-) Jennifer

  2. Wow Caroline, what an adorable house. I love every detail !!!
    By now you are a chandelier artist, every time I see a new one, it is more beautiful :)
    Have a great Sunday !

  6. Hi Caroline! I love how you finished the little shelves on the wall. The turquoise of the island looks awesome against the black and white check floor which I am crazy about. I love those stairs. you don't often have them in your houses, do you? Upstairs, I find that the mixture of wallpaper you have used go so well together! That little cake on the table is so sweet and also the bouquet of roses. My goodness, Caroline, you are such a hard working woman! I don't think I'm mistaken when I say you are the miniaturist who produces the most in a short time span. You rock, girl!

  7. Pero que bonita!!Cuantos detalles que podrás añadír, me gusta!!!

  15. Oh Caroline,

    where do you get all these great ideas??? Your creativity never ceases to amaze me girly....course, I think I already know the answer to that question!! lol

  16. I'm absolutely crazy with the colors of this house, which is the colors that I've used in my country cottage dollhouse. I have become a big fan of your work and mentioned you quite a few times in my new post. I hope you don't mind and take this as the huge compliment it was meant to be!!
    Hugs, Jannet

  17. I love the chair! Looks so comfy and chic. The house is turning out beautifully. The kitchen island is so detailed and adorable! So excited to see your finished work!


  18. I SOOOO need to figure out how to make those shelves you've lined the walls with. Great looking shop you have started! I also think the tiny paper bag is perfect for such a place! Maybe some day I will have a rocking chair like the one you put out front, but in 1:1 for my own front porch!
