My boys and I found an old dollhouse at our local tip shop a while ago. It was in pretty poor shape so we took it apart, cleaned it up, painted it and made tiny floor boards out of paddle-pop sticks (more about that here).
We've (I've) had so much fun collecting the odd bit of dollhouse furniture from op shops (thrift stores), making our own furniture and adding bits and pieces here and there - like my old watch for a wall clock, postage stamp pictures, corks for chairs etc. Last weekend I made some new bedclothes for the bed, cushions for the couch and little curtains... and spent a weekend blissfully arranging everything in the little house... all the while imagining how much I would have loved this as a child. I've even installed little lights...
Now I just have to make a tiny version of my dolls to live in it :)
I'll have a group of three new dolls available to purchase via my online store from 10 am, Friday 28th February (Australian Eastern Daylight time - AEDT).
All three dolls are handmade (by me) from reclaimed fabrics and stuffed with wool. They're not intended as a toy for small children due to delicate hand-stitching, but rather a little art piece to display. Each doll is around 25 cm tall and is priced from AU$380 + shipping.
My dolls sometimes sell out fast so be sure to move through the checkout process quickly! Again, they will be available in my online store from 10 am (AEDT) Friday 28th February at 10 am.
I hope you like them.
