• 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…

  • Dollhouse Kitchen Hutch Makeover

    Decorated White Dollhouse Hutch with Accessories

    Hi Friends! I hope you had a great weekend! We are having a busy summer here, but I found some time to photograph more miniatures to share with you this week. Today, I am going to show you a simple makeover that I gave to our dollhouse’s vintage kitchen hutch. I can’t remember for sure how we came about this cute little wooden cabinet, but I think it may have been one of the pieces of furniture that came with our garage sale dollhouse. This post contains affiliate links. I may receive a small commission for any sales made through them. The first time, I shared this hutch on my…

  • DIY Modern Dollhouse Potted Plants

    Hey Friends! I am here with my first miniature post since moving my blog to WordPress and my new web url alicewingerden.com! As I mentioned in my last post, I plan on sharing a lot more posts about dollhouses and miniatures. This post contains affiliate links. I may receive a small commission for any sales made through them. I will still share my own home décor posts and craft projects, but right now with three kids under the age of 7, the house is not often in a “photo worthy state.” And rather than spending my time feeling bad about this and beating myself up for not being able to…
