Getting things ready for a sale tomorrow at A UNIQUE HOUSE, King George, VA
I finished the dollhouse I have been working on. It is a small 4 room house that I did up thinking a little girl would love it. Of course it is PINK. I stained all the floors and scored them to look like hard wood floors. I wallpapered all the walls in various patterns of doll house wallpapers. The outside is pink with white trim. It looks so pretty. I priced and put into clear sleeves a lot of cards that I have been making. I wish I had a Christmasy box for them to sit in but for now a clear shoe box will have to do. The most amazing thing I have been working on and finished is a Christmas living room scene. It is on a board with no walls. I put a spiral staircase as the focal point. I stained the staircase and cut white card stock for the risers. Very striking with a white Christmas tree under the staircase. Next to it is a fireplace with a Christmas mantel swag on the front. There are boxes of toys and wrapped presents under the tree, too. A rocking chair sits off to the side with a teddy bear on the seat and cloth folded across the back that looks like a quilt. If you peek behind the tree and stairs you see a rocking horse waiting for a child to come down on Christmas morning. I had too much fun putting the scene all together.
