Doll House Update.

Yes. there is even a Sissy Dog on the front porch!

   For now, the doll house is finished. All the painting, wall papering, carpet. floors, curtains and such are done and in place.Most of the  basic furniture is there as well. Who's to say, I will not change it around, add to it ,or take away? It still needs lots of art work and accessories. These will come with time. That will be the fun now, finding a small treasure to fill in the gaps. It has been so much fun. I am excited now to get it home ,where it will live in the library at, My Old Historic House. Next pictures will be of it in the library. If you are just starting to view my blog, be sure and scroll back and see the doll house progress. It sure has come a long way from when I found it the day after Christmas 2011.
   I hope you enjoy the pictures. Please come time soon for a real tour. I will leave the lights on and Sissy Dog will always meet you with a jump and a kiss. I hope you are having beautiful spring weather like we are. It is something else, first of March and all is coming alive. I only hope that the weather does not turn on us and hurt it all. Happy early spring. Richard and Sissy.

The doll is house is fabilous like every thing you own.
I like the little bitty plates hanging on the wall in the dinning room
Also love love little Sissy dog .
I am sure you will keep adding to it even after you get it home in the big library
I will look for little bitty art pictures for you. There is someone really close to Columbia that sells all doll house things just thought about them. I will give them a call, see if they have any wall pitures

Now it is truly a home-it has a Sissy dog!I saw a huge two story doll house at our resale shop the other day and thought of you. Now what is your next project?

Babs said...

Richard, your doll's house is perfect and it even has a beautiful dress on the dress form. How darling and with Sissy Dog waiting on the porch. Thanks for sharing,

Hi Richard! Your house looks great!!! Here is the link to info on the miniature shop near Columbia, it is actually just down the road from Artichoke Annie's Antique Mall.
I bet they would have some miniature cranberry glass that you just couldn't live without! :) It's a great place to shop! Also, Hobby Lobby has miniatures.

Ivy and Elephants said...

I think the doll house is coming along famously! I love all the attention to detail that you are giving it. But my favorite part is Sissy Dog on the porch. I love it!
Don't forget to link to the party!

Richard, I knew the first time I saw your doll house that you would make it beautiful! The lacy bedcover is so pretty and you even have a dress form. Great job, Richard! Hugs, Sherry

What a fabulous redo I like all your rooms. That little dog is so sweet standing guard at the front door.

dale's dreams said...

The house is so lovely, Richard. :)

I guess I do things backwards, I buy all of the smalls first and then procure the house. ;)

Susan said...

Hello Richard! Just getting to see the dollhouse post. ENCHANTING. You have done a fabulous job. Love the curtains in all the rooms and the beds! Awesome. Well, just like your "big" house, you have given your little house your special touch. Loved the tour. Susan

It's gorgeous!!! I wanted to start work on a dollhouse years ago but didn't have the space to display it so I gave up before I started work and sold the few pieces I had at a yard sale. I love seeing fancy dollhouses and all their minature details! You've done a marvelous job with yours!
