I've been showing bits and pieces of my dollhouse and I've gotten some questions from you so I thought I'd give a "home tour" of my little tiny Victorian house. At this time it's in our living-room and it's not the brightest room so it's hard to get photos. Yesterday the sun was slanting through and so I got some pictures. I found this amazing house on Craigslist and got a smokin' deal on it. I'm not 100% in love with the paint color.. do you think it might look better with white trim instead of the darker blue?This is the "attic" so I got a little trunk to put up there.. and put a vintage brass candlestick there and a few tiny clay pots. I need an old dress form and baby buggy, don't you think? :-)
Next on the top floor is the bathroom. I just got the yellow towel sets hanging on the bathtub.. I need a towel rack. I had the cabinet, it's unfinished, should I paint it white or stain and varnish it to match the other wood in there?
Next to the bath on the 3rd floor in the turret is the "conservatory" where a wicker table and chairs is ready for reading and sewing. Almost all of the things in this house came with it, I've only bought a few new things for it to add my own touch to the decor.On the 2nd floor is the master bedroom and it has some really neat furniture in it! This is the dresser, all the drawers open!
I'm not sure what to call this piece, do you know what it is?
Here is the whole room, the 4 poster bed, the commode with the pitcher and bowl on it. I need a nice blanket for the bed but the hand crocheted one to fit this is pretty spendy.
To the right of the bedroom is the nursery. The doll doesn't really fit size wise, but she's the only "person" I have so far. She's an antique porcelain doll with a hand crocheted dress and pantaloons on her. The house came with two hand done needlepoint "carpets".
This is the front hallway, this is the grandfather clock.. and see the fretwork over the door to the living room? And those are POCKET doors there, amazing detail!This is a bad photo, I have to use a flash to get the black piano to show up. The piano is one of my new purchases. Can you believe the inlaid parquet floors?
This is the sideboard in the living-room. See the chocolate cake there? It's made by a fellow blogger from the Northwest - Vicki at Turkey Feathers. Do visit her Etsy shop and see her neat miniature baked goods. I need some cupcakes for my dollhouse!
The living room is a pretty "busy" room - I need to put the Christmas tree in the attic until the holidays come back around. The stockings are glued firmly on the mantel.. see the spinning wheel and knitting basket? There is a checkers game going on the table.
The kitchen is the least nice room in the house, it's small and there is not room for much. I wish it was bigger. Sorry for the fuzzy photo, it's hard to get a good shot of it.
Another shot of my porch swing and afghan. I ordered 4 pillows to use here and there to match this. Coming soon!
The front door actually has a very thin piece of real etched glass in it!So, there is the tour. Did you have fun? What do you think I need to add? Change? It's been a lot of fun to "play" with this.. the grandsons all think it's pretty cool and are very careful with it. I look forward to someday when my granddaughters come back to Oregon to visit.. I just know they're going to love it as much as I do. Thank you for visiting! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
