Debbie's Farmhouse

Debbie's Farmhouse dollhouse is ready.
It's a wrap around porch farm.  The front wall has hand carved brick I made from concrete patch.  I decided the bricks should be a very light palette.  I made the flower boxes from left over scraps of wood. I filled them with moss and artificial flowers I got at Hobby Lobby. They are called Heathers. They are sold as a bush in the regular floral department. To make them miniature dollhouse size I cut them into little pieces.
The vines too come from Hobby Lobby.
This side is perfect white siding.

And the third side is rocks.  It's actually patch concrete I carved as rock and painted.
This little house got furniture.  Almost everything is handmade. The only things I didn't make is the 2 kitchen pieces(sink & oven).
The upstairs has a bed I made from wood veneer.  There's an ice cream on top of the comforter.

The little book in the front is a scrapbook. It's actually filled with pictures and images.

The mantel is grey. Then I applied cream paint over it.  I made a cake, dress painting and a glitter house.
The ceiling is scrapbook paper.  The chandeliers are all handmade and battery operated.

The bookcase in the back is made from scratch too.  I used the veneer wood for this . The table in the front was a kit for a dresser. I used the other parts in another project and was left with a table top  and legs. It made a perfect coffee table.

I made the crates from leftover veneer. The little nail heads are painted on with a gold paint marker. The lettuce head is white printer paper I painted green. Then I cut little rounded leaves and glued them together like a rose.
And these little houses are made of clay.
Thanks for coming over and looking at the farmhouse!


  1. Wow, Caroline! Debbie's farmhouse is so cozy and wonderful! Great work. I love all of your little details. The small kitchen is so fun, and so is the ice cream--yummy! xo Jennifer

  2. GORGEOUS! Hello my dear buddy! I saw this on Pinterest and had to come to visit and leave a comment. I will repin on Pinterest too. LOVE everything, especially your little bed with the handpainted flowers. As I always say, YOU ARE THE MASTER OF DOLLHOUSES AND ANYTHING MINIATURE!! Gorgeous work, dear friend.

    Debbie's Farmhouse is fab! Oh my....goodness! You did a fantastic job on creating the entire thing...all those wonderful walls and floors, the fireplace! The furnishings and extra touches like the crates on the outside.....oh so brilliant too!

  4. Very nice! I appreciate the tips on where you found things you used. I have a structure which is about the same size-maybe it's time to finish it. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Каролина, ты проделала фантастическую работу!

  6. I just love this house. I love the houses with the verandahs and I think this house reminds me a bit of my neighbours farm house when I was growing up. I just think it has a beautiful relaxed feel and I love the colours. Your furniture is lovely and the plants really add to the feel of the house. Just gorgeous.
