More wee things for the dollhouse...

I didn't get as much done on the dollhouse this weekend as I had planned. It was my mother-in-law's birthday Sunday, so we were out of town for the day.
But I did get a base coat of paint on the house... pale yellow... and found several more miniatures to decorate with.
Also spent some time with 2 books on Scandinavian decorating. So, I did decide that it's definitely going to be a Scandinavian cottage with some hand painted folk-art.
Have I mentioned I'm Norwegian?
I found this PIE CRUST TABLE... so flexible as far as 'use'.

I couldn't pass up this bookshelf because it can be filled with mini-quilts in the bedroom, towels in the bath, or books in the living room.

I fell in love with this sofa table. I've always loved having a narrow table behind a sofa for a plant, small lamp, etc. I like the detailing on this one.

And what is a home without craft magazines? Aren't these adorable?

I decided that the first bed I bought is not right for a Scandinavian cottage, so I bought another BED which will look much more in keeping with the theme. I want to take out my black Sharpie marker and put an X through the bedspread... not my taste!! But then I'd have permanent marker on my computer screen.
1. Second coat of yellow paint.
2. Paint the roof (no, it's not a sod roof w/goats).
3. Hopefully, attach decorative blue trim, black shutters, & window boxes.
4. Paint porch floor and attach railings & porch roof.
5. Get on the treadmill... must start routine!
(I hate the thought of it)
Make your day a good one!!

You are just going to want to be shrunk down to a little doll size so you can just move in and live in that darling house.
