Ma Jolie Maison CustomDollhouse

I've finished another house. Ma Jolie Maison will be going to Diane's. Thank you Diane! This house is 15 1/2" deep x 16 1/4" across x 21 3/4" tall.
 The exterior is an old weathered white color with silver roof.
 The front door has it's own porch light illuminating the 3 steps.
 This cozy little entry stoop would look marvelous with oodles of potted plants. The stones and bricks are all done with concrete.
 The little white fence will keep the little garden private. I used a moss mat as my grass.
 All the links to my vegetation and all materials are on my resources page above.

 The exterior is all plaster.It creates a wonderfully smooth texture.

 Downstairs is 8 1/2" tall x 15 1/4" across x 12"deep. Upstairs is 8 1/4" tall x 11 7/8" deep x 10 3/4" across.

 The lights and fire are controlled by 2 push switches in the chimney.The batteries are also hidden here.

Thank you for visiting today!

Swan Ridge - Furnished Custom Dollhouse

I've finished furnishing Swan Ridge for Barbara.
This house is covered in dried flowers and real greenery. No plastic.
I found the chairs and tables at Hobby Lobby.They are part of a set with a bench. So I bought 2 sets to have 2 chairs.
 I love bunting. I think it makes any house look so festive and romantic.  The 2 windows are the type that slide open.
 This little mailbox was the last piece I made for the house. The porch was just missing something. You can see a tutorial for the mailbox here: mailbox
 I use a thick canvas material used to make drop-clothes to make all the rugs.
The house is 18” across x 18 1/2 tall without the chimney. It’s 12 1/4” deep plus a  4” porch.

 I made the chairs, table, mantel, pillows, rug, flowers and chandelier.
 The table was a buffet that came with a broken leg. So I transformed it into a halltree with a real chalkboard.

 The kitchen has a very vintage vibe.
 I made the sink from scratch as well as the stove and hood,  and the table.

This fridge was actually part of a basic kitchen set from Hobby Lobby. I had not used the fridge because it looked hideous. It was a rectangle box.  All it took was rounding off all the corners and edges.  I added a couple of trim pieces and the word love(jewelry finding). I painted it a soft robin egg blue and glossed it heavily.
Upstairs is the bedroom and bath.
 I painted the tub bottom half in a mat cream color.

 Made a bed all messy and cozy. There is also a bench and nightstand.

I hoped you enjoyed your tour of this little cottage!
