A Doll's House...finally!

Good morning all...A friend and I went to a barn sale this past weekend. I was looking around waiting for someone to put down a old photo album he was looking at so I could get a look when I turned and saw this fabulous doll house! I went and got the owner and asked her if it was for sale and she said, hesitating, "yes" followed by " there are doors here some where"! I started looking and found them. I was afraid to ask again how much she wanted for it but I did. She then said "25 dollars?? I could not get my money out fast enough!!

I got it home and asked hubby if he could make a stand for it. We decided on a book shelf attached to the bottom of the doll house. This is a few pics of the progress. He still has some finish work to do on the bookcase part and I have tons of work on the house its self. I already have wallpaper, windows and a door that all fit PERFECTLY and tons of other stuff that I have been collecting over the years. This will be the perfect winter project for me to work on along with lots of tiny dolls!

I will post pics as it continues along...

A new dress for Millicent...

Well..Millicent has been sitting on my desk since I created her. She kept telling me she did not like her dress. So this afternoon I redid parts that she did not like and I think we are both happier with the results. LOL! Just one of those things that nags you to death and you just have to fix it!

I have changed the pics in the post below to the updated dress so you can have a look.

Have a super day all!

Millicent..a Queen Anne inspired doll

Good day all..this is Millicent, a Queen Anne inspired doll and she is my first one. I have been wanting to try this style of doll for awhile now and can't wait to start the next one! She was so much fun to make. Millicent is only 8 inches tall. She will be for sale on the Primitive Gathering website on Sunday. Just click the tab on the right of this page to get there.

Hope you all are staying cool! It sure is hot here...
