• Antique Handmade Dollhouse

    Fully-Decorated-Antique-Dollouse

    Hi Friends! Fall is in the air around here which makes me very excited! Although, if you can believe it, I have yet to decorate for it or get a single pumpkin. I guess, I am just taking things really slow this year and trying not to stress myself out too much. Today, I have something really fun and exciting to show you. Hazel, Owen and I went to our first ever dollhouse show right here in Fairport. It was hosted by a local dollhouse shop and had vendors with a variety of miniatures and dollhouses for sale. We were so excited and were happy to find sellers with items…

    I have partnered with Raymour & Flanigan and received product in exchange for this post. All expressed opinions are 100% my own. Hi Friends! Can you believe summer is almost over? My kids start school tomorrow and I know I am going to miss having them to myself every day. Even though, they are so ready to go. They are counting down the days with excitement. Hazel will be entering second grade, Owen first grade, and Violet turns two in November. So it’s sure to be a busy, fun filled year. I have continued working away at making our new house a home and finally have made lots of progress…

  • Miniature Beach Campsite from Nature

    Miniature Nature Tepee and Campfire on the Beach

    Hey Everyone! I’ve been away for a bit. I spent last week in beautiful Lake Tahoe, celebrating my sister’s wedding. Hazel and I had a girls trip, just the two of us, all the way across the country to be in the wedding party. It was a whirlwind with our flight being delayed and losing out on one of our vacation days, but we made the best of it. And I am so glad I was there to celebrate with my sister. It was hard to be away though, and I have to say, there is truly no place like home. I couldn’t wait to give my other two kids…

  • Updating a Bathroom Without Remodeling

    Quick Bathroom Fixes for Selling a House

    Summer is flying by! I even lit one of my fall candles the other day and found myself getting in the mood for the next season. Yup, I really did. Don’t worry, I didn’t break out any fall décor just yet.  I’ll wait till September for that. But seriously, I am still enjoying the warm weather and spending the days carefree (for the most part), with the little ones. I haven’t had a lot of time to work on any dollhouse projects, but I am looking forward to that when the older kids go back to school and the baby is taking a nap. So no miniatures today, instead, I…

  • Dollhouse Dresser Redo with Chalk Paint

    Boho Dollhouse Decorating Ideas

    I love a quick paint makeover. A few years ago, I picked up some inexpensive chalk paint at Wal-Mart, not knowing at the time what I would use it for. I quickly discovered it was perfect for dollhouse projects. This post contains affiliate links. I may receive a small commission for any sales made through them. Most of the furniture that we have collected for the dollhouse are pieces that originally came with it, those found at second hand shops and flea markets and those that I have saved from childhood. This little 3/4″ scale dresser is a piece that I purchased at an antique store. Here it is BEFORE:…

  • Coaster Turned Dollhouse Coffee Table

    Handmade Dollhouse Coffee Table in Dollhouse Living Room

    My favorite miniatures are those that don’t cost much to make, just a little creativity. When you get into dollhouses and miniatures, you quickly realize it can be a very expensive hobby if you want to shop for premade furniture and accessories. When I was a kid, I would get dollhouse catalogs and circle everything I wanted. I remember thinking “someday I will buy all of these!” Now, I would rather save my money and make as much as I can for the dollhouses on my own. Today, I am showing how I made a coffee table for our dollhouse living room with some simple materials I had lying around…
