Hi y'all! I sure did miss you last week. I was very busy though working
on my Texas Rosebud Townhouse. Lots of new things. Want to take a
Let's start in the living room. Several additions here.
There is a new window with handmade curtains made by me. Behind the
cozy chair is a new bookcase. I bought it unfinished. I painted it and
lined the back of the unit with a mini rose bud print. It is the Texas Rosebud
Townhouse so roses are everywhere!
Some of the books I purchased, like this new set of Anne of Green Gables
books, and some I made. I was hard at work at our breakfast counter gluing
and decoupaging covers. I get so involved in my work that I totally
forget the real world.
I tweaked the top of the mantel a bit and added some "family" photos.
Lots of fun going on in the kitchen too ….
I really went crazy in here. I would wake up in the middle of the night with
an inspiration and could hardly wait to act on it. Thankfully I am so lucky to
have such a loving and encouraging husband who doesn't think I am nuts!
Of course, maybe he does ~ I have not had the nerve to ask him.
I found this adorable clock on etsy. I am going to go into detail about all
the things I purchased for the townhouse tomorrow. I will be sure to tell
you all about Roxanne and her charming miniatures then.
I made a skirt for the kitchen sink. Off to the right and next to the
cabinet is a little calendar I put created from this and that.
You can't see it very well in this pic, but I embroidered a little
felt rug for the area in front of the sink too.
I put in a door. I need to create a little scene for the background. Have
not decided just what I want yet, but it will come to me. Oh and I made
the little curtain rod and the valance too. But …. my favorite things are
the itty bitty aprons I made. I had so much fun creating them.
I found a cute little unfinished peg rack to hang my aprons on.
The buttons are handmade out of polymer clay. I designed them so that
they could be sewn on just like real ones would be. I added the pocket
so that the cook could keep her wooden spoon at the ready. Something
always needs stirring in the kitchen :-)
So there you have it ~ the big reveal. I get so involved that I forget to eat!
Hmm …. dollhouses keep you slim. I wonder if I lost any weight last
week? Seems like my clothes are looser.
Time to get a sandwich and make a cup of tea. So glad to be back
visiting with y'all. Hope you will stop by again tomorrow when I give
you some dollhouse resources and tips. Until then ….
Bentley ~ you know what this dollhouse needs that it doesn't
have? A dog! Every house needs a dog! I thought you
would agree with me :-)
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
