    Workroom in miniature

    I used to be interested in dolls' houses. Thought you might be interested in the 'workroom' of one of them.

    So cute. I had a Dolls House when I was young my father built it all 7 rooms it was two storey with an attic.
    My mother with some help from me decorated it but it wasn't as good as yours. I only had matchbox and egg carton furniture. Oh for the memories.

    I had a doll house. I have saved some of the furniture. I need to do some little vinyets (sorry can't spell) but I like the workroom. So Cute!

    It's adorable. I have a room box someone gave me, but have no idea how to get started turning it into a sewing/craft room. Any tips?

    I had(my boys fell on it and that was the end) a doll house and used to even make little ivy plants using fine wire and manicure scissors to cut the leaves, little doilies and rugs. I have one to put together for DGD but It is not working so far!!

    Thank reminds me that I have my doll house from when I was a little kid. It is made of tin. Most of the furnature is gone, which is a shame. All this is in a box somewhere in the stack. Have thought of selling it. I know it is over 50 yrs old. Wow.

    My Granddad made me a beautiful wooden doll bed when I was 7 yrs. old. I will be 70 in March. My Granddaughter is now 9 and loved playing with it at my house. She had gotten an American Doll for her birthday in Sept and wanted a bed for her so I offered her to take this one home at Christmas. She was thrilled to take it but wanted to paint it and add stencils to it. I told her it was hers,fix it anyway she wanted and it looked so cute when she finished.

    How adorable! Love those teeny tiny spools of thread. I think this is something that should go traveling from LQS to LQS for inspiration!

    I made myself a doll house from a kit, had a lot of fun putting it together and making some of the furniture, but had to sell it when we moved to a smaller home, but did keep the furniture. Would love to make another one, but there are so many others things I want to do also and so little time.

    So gosh darn cute!! I want to build a sewing room shadow box too. I'll start watching for little things to put into it. Thanks for sharing and the great idea.
