Made it Myself... Tuesday: Dolls and Doll house mod

Unfortunately, there's more to life than blogging. Sorry for my recent absenses. I may have to resort to a few-times-a-week-blogging rather than daily blogging, I'm not sure.....

That said, do you like my new project? It's our friend's 2 year old birthday today! She wants a doll house.

We had an old garage-sale doll house that needed to go, so we spruced it up a bit...

The "yard" was a piece of old, badly worn paper. We tore it off, and glued down fabric to make a bit of a path. Tacky glue worked pretty well.

Then we added flowers and a tree, and threw in some of our dollhouse furniture (we have excess).

A dollhouse needs dolls, right?

So we made some. This is "The Mom"

"The Fireman"

"The Farmer"

"The Fairy"

"The Dad"

and, "The Ballerina"

I hope she enjoys them! They were more work than I had bargained for, but she's worth it. We're taking it to supper at her house this evening.

Do any projects this week? Add a comment sharing a link!
