My Newest Obsession!!

 
Oh my gosh!!  This is my newest obsession!!  I got a dollhouse.  I had bought a kit and have just never gotten around to even opening the box.  I have been picking up doll furniture, accessories, etc. for a while and suddenly......
 
There she was in all her elegant glory!
 
All ready to be decorated and filled with miniature wonders.
 
I weighed over in my mind if I had the mental capacity to put the other dollhouse together or not.....
 
Didn't think long about that one!
 
 
She will have to have a name of course, but the good news is that she is all put together and I can just start decorating.
 
Yippee!!
 
I'm hating the thought of going off and leaving her for a month while we are on vacation, but figure I can take my photos and start planning what I am going to do where.
 
 
With all of these rooms, I will be able to do a lot of different things.  I really don't want the old Victorian look on the inside but more of a casual, more updated look.
 
I can hardly wait!!
 
Enjoy!
 
Till next time, Judy

You will have so much fun with it. Since seeing your post about getting the miniatures, I have been thinking about working with mine again.
Hope you are enjoying the weekend.

Love the french doors out onto the balcony - that's a great feature, as many dollhouses have no side windows or doors. I can't wait to see what you do with it! Squeal! It's so gorgeous!!

Sweet! And you've already got plank walls if you choose to go in that direction.

Bev said...

Oh it's so pretty! I have a friend who did one and used fabric for wallpaper (with Modge Podge). It's really pretty. Let me know what color and size and I'll make a miniature quilt for it. Really! XO

Oh, I love it and the rooms look big enough to really have some fun. One of these days....I'd love to have one, too. I have started looking for furniture but haven't found much yet. You're going to have such fun! Wish I could come over and play. Sweet hugs!

Oh how beautiful! I am putting together a very long project of a dolls house with ideas from my family during the Victorian times. I look forward to reading and seeing what you do with this fantastic piece. xx

I built my daughter a dollhouse when she was 6. It was so much fun to decorate. It was a birthday gift and on her party invitation I mentioned the dollhouse so all of her gifts were furniture and things for her house.

It is in the attic waiting for the love of a grandchild someday.

Have fun with your house.

Pat Dean said...

Judy, are you interested in selling the one you didn't open? I would be very interested in purchasing it.

Donna said...

It's adorable!

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Oh Judy, you are going to have so much fun decorating it. I had one that was a gift from my friend and kept it for about 15 years. I was redecorating the den and I gave it to a little girl that hardly had any toys - she cried when I gave it to her. She couldn't believe that someone would do that for her. So hopefully mine was played with a lot. I miss having one and maybe I will get another one someday.
Enjoy your new find.

That's wonderful! About a year ago, we put together one from a kit, but we never got around to decorating the rooms.

Judy--
You have a wonderful Doll house here. I got mine back in the Fall. I've done a little bit here and there with it.
I made myself a promise not to work on it except to reward myself for little tasks that I get done around my REAL HOUSE!
I'm chomping at the bit to do some more work on it.
You have a big one. Mine is a little doll house. But I'm ok with it...You're going to have such fun!
I've enjoyed working in mine!
Pat
