I call my new custom dollhouse "La Belle Maison."
I designed and built this dollhouse from scratch. It's 12"wide x 16 3/4" tall x 12 1/2" deep.
I used wood I found at Michael's for most of the structure.
The siding is pine shingles and birch wood siding.
I found a weathervane in the fairy garden department at Hobby Lobby.
To do the walkway, I applied a generous amount of white glue and patted down sand. This is candle filler sand. The grass is a moss mat(see my resources page for links). It comes with a sticky back.
This side of the house is concrete. The base of the house is also concrete.
I made all the furniture inside.
I looked at a Pottery Barn Kids bed for inspiration. For the bedside table I googled vintage nightstand and combined a couple of designs.
This dollhouse will be available in my Etsy shop: CinderellaMoments.etsy.com
It is beautiful, Caroline! I love, and let me always amazed with the expertise you Cirta and the woods to join the houses, and to say to your furniture, stairs, the boiling pot ... is a genius! is impressive, all the ... is that I just love!ReplyDelete
A big hugs, my friend❤️
Es más que bella Caroline, es espectacular.ReplyDelete
Me encantan todos los elementos y combinaciones que has hecho.
Oh my dear girl! You almost *sniff* made me cry for the sheer delight that has come from your heart. Wow! Every bit of this dreamy cottage is pure imagination from the land where really good stories come from. Do you know what I mean? I can hardly describe it. But pure magic!ReplyDelete
Tiene ese estilo encantador que sabes darle a la cosas.ReplyDelete
Siempre ese estilo tuyo tan personal... maravillosa! :)ReplyDelete
Gorgeous as always, Caroline!ReplyDelete
Wishing you the happiest of holidays in your new home!
Oh I love it. It reminds me of the old style houses of the 30's. Good job!ReplyDelete
Love it.your work takes me to a magical place. Thank you for sharing your beautiful miniatures.ReplyDelete
Awww! Thank you so much Kathleen! I appreciate that so much! :)Delete
Well, Carolin, I believe you have outdone yourself yet again. I think my favorite bit is of all things the little white bottle brush tree under the dome. So cute. I need to figure out my own. And I love the warmth of the fireplace. My miniature project is on hold until after the holidays. I worked on the house so much, that I am enjoying the break. I have been making dresses for the 18 inch dolls for the little girls on my gift list. Merry Christmas.ReplyDelete
Charming is a good start I think. You do exquisite work Caroline. Love the walkway & the little pail with "water" in it. Love the streaming pot & the cozy fire. Did you make the little wire basket on the white long table? I have a thing for baskets & containers. Well done, very well done.ReplyDelete
Hi Deb! I did not make that basket. I found it at Michael's. But I think it would be pretty easy to make if you could find grid wire or screen. It would be a nice project to research. I love baskets too. They bring something of realism into a space. Thank you so much for all your comments. I love reading them!Delete
As always, a feast for the eyes and joy one's heart! I adore the tufted bed and would love to hear how you made it. Happy Holidays to one and all and thank you again, Caroline, for all the happiness you bring to so many!ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness! Thank you so much for such a compliment! I'm so happy you visit my blog and take the time to comment too. I can't tell you how much it means to me to hear how you feel about this site. Merry Christmas! And a super Happy New Year!Delete
I really like the many details.
And again you've created a beautiful dollhouse, Caroline, this one also has your famous Cinderella look ;)! I bet that it's cosy and warm in there, just the right house for a lovely Christmas ;)!ReplyDelete

Oh my, oh my...every time I think you can't possibly outdo yourself, you do! Every little detail is just amazing, and that fireplace!!! I love your little window coverings:) Our Hobby Lobby doesn't seem to have a miniature garden supply area, they don't have much in the way of miniatures at all:(ReplyDelete
Thank you for all the inspiration Caroline! I've wanted a dollhouse for so long and it wasn't until I discovered your blog that I felt truly inspired to do it! In fact, I told Kyran I may need an entire room for mini's someday:)
Have a wonderful Christmas my friend and I look forward to what you come up with for 2016!!! Hugs!
