mixed media monday....

i adore miniature things,and i love my doll house!....and although i love the victorian gingerbread houses that are commercially available, i wanted something to fit more with my personality....so ebay hunting i went...and found the perfect simple dollhouse, two story, open floor plan....and vintage,just my style!..... i painted it with whimsy,and  left it that way for a bit...i had a vision as to how i wanted to decorate my pretend getaway, but again, didn't want to just fill my house with just any old furniture. i obtained most of my furnsishings by pouring over ebay sites, i got a vintage porcelain sink that i just adore,and the table and chairs i found at my local dollar store,painted and decoupaged...oh the joy!....as in real life, i adore sweets,and cooking and collecting,and my doll house really reflects that parts of me.i made curtains out of scraps of fabric,and cut out a mackenzie childs screen image that i found on their site. when i couldn't find a drawing table, my dad stepped right in,and made one for meits shown here in the top right side of the second floor. i found a little vintage blonde dolly at an antique store,and there i sit,at my kitchen table,phone in hand, very happy....my dollhouse has been a labor of  love for me,and just like in life, i  frequently move things around inside.......wake your inner child and search for your perfect miiature hideaway...it can be made out of a box,or frame,create one today!
