Angel Studio Dollhouse

My new dollhouse is an art studio called Angel Studio.  It's a 1/12 scale cottage with battery operated lights.
I had bought these doors for the french mansard house "La Maison de Campagne."  But they got lost and arrived 2 weeks late. I think it all worked out for the best!
I called this house Angel Studio because of these little paintings I painted of wings.  I made 2 benches, a little clay house and flowers. The pink flowers are tissue paper. 
The vines are from Hobby Lobby. I just cut them into small pieces to be 1/12th scale. The flowers are called Heathers. They come in different colors. I also cut those up  to be in scale.
The siding is birch.
Here's the little switch for the lights hidden in the chimney.
I painted a rug, more wings paintings and filled a metal tub with fabrics.

The desk is overloaded with stuff. Just like my desk is most of the time. LOL!
 There's even a snack because you can't create on an empty stomach. :D

The memo board is also loaded with ideas and projects. 

There's an old shutter behind another painting of wings. 
I made these wings out of cardstock.
On this side of the studio the wall is a chalkboard. You can get sheets of chalkboard in the scrapbook section of the craft store. I made a little camping cot and used it like a bench here.  I put an old window behind it and also more paintings, a nice big pillow, clay house, a wooden box full of tiny pine cones I got out of a potpourri set.
Thanks so much for coming over and taking a look at Angel Stdio. It's available in my Etsy shop.
And on a personal note...
 Our sweet , beautiful Mia passed away Monday.  We will miss her so much. She was with us for almost 18 years. It's always so difficult to let them go. But I know she's waiting in heaven. And I thank God he loaned her to us for such a long time. Rest in peace gorgeous girl. You were such a sophisticated, good girl. ♥♥♥
