  1. I found this house on Etsy, from the seller 3Star Studio Arts. The quality of the wood is wonderful, and since I'm not crazy about the actual construction of dollhouses, I loved the fact that it can be popped together in about 10 minutes. The entire first floor is going to be a bakery/sweet shop, one of the second floor rooms is going to be a commercial kitchen where the treats are made, and the other second floor room will probably be a small living space for the owner of the bakery. Haven't thought much about the roof yet.
  2. Thanks! For the walls I used thin cardboard for the bricks and silver dimensional paint for the mortar. I sort of like the effect, but not as much as I like the egg carton stone on my first house. I also wish I had made the bricks a lot smaller, because viewed all together it's easy to see that the bricks are way out of scale. Luckily mice, minions and totoros are not very demanding tenants!
  3. I found tiny minions too and have been using them in my dollhouse! Right now they're mostly hanging out with the totoros in the studio apartment above the bakery, but one of them does have an ice cream cone - maybe my bakery/sweet shop will have to sell ice cream. I think mine may be even tinier then yours, Deb - I found them at Toys R Us and they were marketed as being part of a 'minion pod game.' They each came with a small plastic pod thing and a game card. I don't really understand the point of the game they're supposed to be a part of, but that's okay, they're perfect for my house! My
  4. I love Petite Properties! I recently ordered Cobweb Cottage and plan on turning it into a sort of fairy tale/witches cottage. I remember seeing this kit in quarter scale, I didn't realize they had released it in half scale - it's great! I love their furniture kits as well.
  5. Well, I tried using thin cord, but the holes I made in the fridge to pull the cord through were too close to the top edge (and the clay was a little too thin) so one of the holes broke. I can't quite figure out how to fix that, unless I was to fix the clay and then rebake it.
  6. I love this scene - it looks exactly like something my cat would do!
  7. I love that wallpaper - it looks perfect for the house.
  8. That's a great idea - I've made those little photo books using vacation photos before, but I never thought of doing it for a dollhouse project. My work isn't nearly as stunning as yours, but I still may have to try that!
  9. I love the use of the red, it really makes things pop(and that's a great classic red for the phone box)! I also love Petite Properties - I have that phone box in 1/2 scale but haven't put it together yet.
  10. I really like your mice. The bakery I'm working on is also going to be populated by mice! So far I've made a husband and wife mouse who are the owners of the bakery, and their son, who delivers bread and pastries on his bicycle (I found the bike in the fairy garden section of the craft store). I plan to post pictures as soon as I've finished their ears and clothes. I'd love to see more pictures of your mice and their house as well!
