I have been having so much fun with my dollhouse that I haven't been doing much blogging, or Easter decorating! So I finally did a little decorating on the dining room table
and some decorating in the dollhouse kitchens and dining rooms. Below is my first dollhouse, the white 3 story one. Eggs are being dyed in the kitchen and notice the little bird nests on the plate, they are suppose to be fancy cookies and there's even a chocolate bunny next to that, and a bundle of carrots on the table for the Easter Bunny.
The dining room table is set with the Easter ham. Notice the Jesus picture hanging on the wall.
And below is the blue farmhouse kitchen ready for Easter, and they are having a ham dinner as well and hot homemade bread awaits them on the stove. Them? Uh oh, I don't even have a family for this house yet! ;-)
See the cute little Easter chicks in the flat wood crate next to the stove, they just hopped out of the basket and are ready to explore. The little green basket is a crocheted basket and quite cute but the handle doesn't stay up.
Around the corner in the parlor, tea is waiting for you on the tea cart, some blooming daffodils (paper quilled) and a cute little metal chick coming out of an egg. A cookie tray is waiting below.
Since I've last posted I have been to a miniature show and to the miniature museum buying more goodies from their gift shop! So much fun! Here is what I bought.
My favorite is the little shadow box thingy on the bed on the left, it's like a Victorian flower wreath box. Since my farmhouse is a turn the century maritime (Prince Edward Island) house, I thought these wall pictures would be nice hanging somewhere in the house. The lighthouse picture is hand painted and and it now hangs in the Library. The ship picture doesn't have a place yet.
My next favorite thing is the Queen Victoria bust, it is rather large for a miniature bust but I still found just the right place for her...
As for the beds, I found in one of my Victorian Homes magazines a feature on Victorian quilts, so I enlarged the quilt images and glued them to fabric backing and put them on the beds. I cut up a hanky to make the sheet and pillowcase on the bed below...
And here she sits in the pink bedroom. I wallpapered the room and added the fake window with a country cow pasture scene to try to break up the pink a bit. This room is still a work in progress.
Since that bed turned out so cute I got a little carried away and did the same thing to the boy's bed for the attic bedroom. This bedroom is still a work in progress too. Just can't find the right boy's bedroom wallpaper.
AND, in the Old Curiosity Shop I added a quilt to that bed and made that pillow case and I made the quilt rack and hung a quilt there too. See, I told you I got a little excited about this quilt making business! Don't you just love the stuffed peacock perched up on the shelf? I do, I found that guy at Michael's and was quite excited about it.
While making quilts and pillow cases and curtains for the pink bedroom's fake window, I also made some velvet curtains to hang in the parlor. (I know, I still haven't done anything with that black iron sofa and chairs and I know it looks dreadful but I will decide on something soon.)
I made more curtains out of another hanky for the master bedroom windows,
added brown panels to the shutters, started painting the porch gray,
and added lighting.
So now you know what I've been up to lately and why I haven't been blogging or decorating for Easter until now.
Thank you so much for visiting and may you have a joyous Easter. Praise God for that empty tomb and for His promises of eternal life.
