Painted China Cabinet

I just finished this little china cabinet I got from Michaels, I painted with white and then with an antiquing medium.  I also got the tea set from Michaels, too cute!!
  I tried to paint roses on here but could not paint them, too tiny...I guess I'll have to practice, practice, practice....I'm loving this mini madness!!!

Almost Finished

I know you guys are tired of seeing this pink cottage....I'm tired of working on it, I'd like to get finished with it!! I have put the trim on, finished the windows, door and flower boxes. 

I now have to decide what kind of flowers to put in the window boxes, I'm thinking roses, because they are my favorite and will go well with the cottage.

The Roof is Finished

I love when I make progress, I was begining to think I would never get finished with the when I laid the last shingle I was very happy!

I also got a bag of minis from a thrift store, it was my first trip to look for miniatures at thrift stores, I was glad of what I found...
I will make this more realistic...

And a bag of miniatures...

these are some of the things in the bag...too cute!!!

Now, if I can just finish the house so I can start furnishings it...that will be the fun part.

Slow but Steady

My house is slowly, but surely getting are a few things that I've made for my little pink house...remember, I'm  new to the world of miniature making.
a couch, a pillow and a rug...I sure hope I get better at this.

Almost there

I can't believe how many parts there are to this house....well here are the results so far...
I still have a lot to do....

but, here is a house that I made out of a paper house and some sticks...this is what got me interested in mini 
Very Rustic

My Doll House

I got this Doll house at Michaels Craft Store for $30.00 with a 40% off coupon.  That's a great buy...even if I mess up building it. 

My Doll House

Yes, that's right, 42 years old and now I decided I would like a dollhouse.  I've never had a dollhouse, so I thought this would be a great project to make and decorate.
