dolls house nerd

Ada's turns 3 next week and I've been getting very busy bee style restoring a bunch of old dolls house furniture to go in her new dolls house. This has been a really fun project and I'm not ashamed to say I may be becoming a bit of a dolls house nerd. There's so much scope for creative expression when you kit out and decorate in miniature. I'm particularly pleased with the restoration job on the Queen Anne bed (which came to me in many pieces and in much need of some tlc) I think the end result is pretty special, no?
I still have quite a bit to do between now and this time next week. Painting, laying carpet, bathroom fit outs and then there's the wallpaper...... somewhere in there I also have to throw Ada a third birthday party, prepare for a house inspection and oh did I mention we get our new puppy on Sunday? Thankfully Ms My Poppet will be putting in some elbow grease to help make it all happen, god I love the Boss Lady! Check out her funny post about the truth behind all those pretty pictures you see on blogs here (mine included)!


  1. I love them Estelle!! Great job! I can't wait to see the unveil :)

  2. What a fantastic job. It's going to look wonderful.

  3. They're so pretty and tiny and cute! Great job! Doll houses are lots of fun! I hope you girls enjoy your new doll house! :)

  4. I am a closet dolls house lover. I don't think I'd want one - something sad about a house that's not played with - but I love all those teeny tiny things. I have dollhouse furniture that was my mums, made for her by an uncle, I think.
    And then I saw this one while working this week: http://macarthur-chronicle-wollondilly.whereilive.com.au/photos/gallery/picton-couple-spent-15-000-hours-making-dolls-house/

  5. Wow, that looks like so much fun!!! I will have to wait a little longer until my girls get a lovely dolls house. At the moment my oldest would take much delight in flinging the lovely little pieces of furniture and other goodies all over the house. I would love to see the finished project.


Thanks ever so for taking the time to say hi!
