Dollhouse Update & A Giveaway!

First things first..... A giveaway.  As most of you know; I love designing, creating and crafting just about anything I can get my hands on so I have accumulated a lof of product.  After spending an entire weekend organizing and cleaning up both my scrap room and sewing room I have decided that I have too much "stuff" and I should have a giveaway.
If you're not already a follower of my blog, become a follower and leave me a comment telling me what your favorite crafting project is.
I'll pick a random winner at the end of the month and send them this sweet package.
And... As promised, a few pics of the inside of my dollhouse rooms now that I have them partially furnished.
I still have a few larger pieces that I want to buy, a piano for the living room and some more items for the kitchen, but it's getting there and I'm loving the search for trinkets and treasures to add to my house.
I bought a few miniature picture frames, just need to get some photos in them and hang them on the walls.
My favorite room, the master bedroom..... Probably because it's PINK.




The nursery would have to be my second favorite room.  
The adorable shoes on the dresser.
 Notice the cute teddy bear slippers on the floor.
The kitchen with the tiffany hanging light and teapot clock on the wall

 Love the UK door mat
The adorable sewing machine (notice the thread and bolts of fabric)
and ironing board with miniature iron

The living room with the old RCA television


 The front porch with the delivery of milk and the cute little wellies
 The stairway from the kitchen to the upstairs bedrooms
 The stairway from the upstairs down to the main floor. 
 This is going to be the bathroom as soon as I can figure out a way to section it off.
I hope you have enjoyed this little tour of my dollhouse.  Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered into the giveaway.

Val, love the shabby look on the furniture. It is so you! Can I be your new Grand Daughter?

Hi Valery,
Your dollhouse is gorgeous, so much fun painting and making items for it.
My Mom had a 2-storey Colonial style dollhouse that Dad made for her. She spent many happy times decorating it and finding 'just the right thing' to add to a room. After she passed away, Dad donated it to the Barrie Hospital in Ontario. The hospital auxillary used it as a fundraiser auction item. They got several thousand dollars for it which in turn, went to support the children's care unit.
I know Mom would have been very pleased with that. She loved her little dollhouse as I know you love yours.

I am a new follower, sent here by the Tight Wad in Utah website. I love your dollhouse! Your attention to detail is amazing. I loved looking at each individual piece.

Your dollhouse if beautiful. It makes me wish I still had mine from when I was young. I just imagine all the great stuff I could do to it now. There are so many crafts I do it's hard to pick just one favorite, but I would probably have to say sewing. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Val, what an amazing dollhouse! It really brought back memories. My grandpa built me my first dollhouse and I remember spending hours and hours every day rearranging, painting, and decorating it. My favorite day was Sunday when my grandma would bring me to the store to pick out new pieces for the dollhouse. I dont have it anymore but now I have a 2 year old daughter and we have been looking to buy a new one to start decorating. Also, we LOVE scrapbooking! I just got a Cricut and have been going scrap crazy! Thanks for such a wonderful giveaway:) Good Luck everyone.

Amazing dollhouse!! I think the pink bedroom is my favorite too. But the distressed furniture is awesome. So adorable! I'm a knitter and crocheter but starting to get into other crafts now that I have a 21 month old daughter to entertain!

Meena said...

I know my daughter wanted a doll house when she was younger. It never ended up happening; looking at this now it's just so beautiful and unique. I think if my daughter was still younger she would absolutely love this!
