I really love making these tiny bottle cap scenes!
I really love making these tiny bottle cap scenes!
This is the only 1:144 scale dollhouse I’ve ever made. It was an accidental purchase–the seller’s description said it was 1:24 scale, so I thought I was getting a much larger dollhouse. I loved the gothic style of it though, so I went ahead and built it, and it turned out so beautifully that I have it on display downstairs.
I’m tired. I’m exhausted all day, but the moment it’s time for sleep, my brain is like “hey, let’s think about all the things that could go wrong! Doesn’t that sound fun?!” Aaaand then I don’t sleep.
Anyway, here’s some Easter-themed stuff I made over the weekend. I really like how the pin turned out. It’s cute. The chick in a basket is fine too, I guess.
I was frustrated with the dollhouse I’m currently working on, so I took a break and made a tiny music store.
It could use a checkout counter, and maybe some decorations of some kind… Maybe some music that goes beyond just what I like, as well. It’s rarely a good business model to only sell what appeals to you. I’m not sure what I’ll add yet.
Also, the Calico Critter otter family is so stinkin cute. I love them. I want to build them their own beach house so badly… like a little teal house on stilts and ocean themed and mermaids and seashell beds and just like the cutest most tacky beach house ever.
I think that’s why I love dollhousing. I can make tacky, awful things, and no one can judge me because it’s a dollhouse.
*None of the album art belongs to me! They are the property of whoever made them!!!
This post will feature the living room of my Winter Wonderland dollhouse. Some of the pillows in this room are mine, but the penguin pillow and the blue snowflake pillow were purchased from an Etsy shop.
I made these tiny fairy homes today! I haven’t glazed them yet. I am still working on my glazing technique, and I don’t want to ruin anything.
Now it’s time for the brother and sister’s bedroom!
This is my favorite room of the house because it’s penguin themed, and I LOVE penguins!
Isn’t it fancy?
I adored working on this accent wall, and I’m really happy with how it turned out. The table features a pair of mittens, a winter hat made of polymer clay, and a Gameboy, also made of clay.
I made polymer clay penguin feet for the beds. The penguin felties are from an Etsy shop.
The black and white wardrobe was my first try at making anything like that, so please forgive its issues. The tiny Hamlet book just matched the room. I doubt the Marshmallow mouse children are interested in Shakespeare.
I hope you’ll love this room as much as I do!
I mentioned before that I also work with polymer clay. I can’t say I’m good at it, but I wanted to share one of my creations with everyone:
This little guy is my first attempt at making a red panda. He’s kinda silly looking, but I love him. Red pandas are special to me because my best friend used to tell me I looked just like one. She passed away nearly four years ago, but I still miss her everyday.
Here’s a picture of me so you guys can decide for yourselves:
I hope everyone is having a lovely Wednesday!
I’m pretty new to polymer clay, so tips and tricks are greatly appreciated!
This post will cover the parents’ bedroom of the winter house. The room is pretty bare, so this will be a short post.

I really love this bed. I wanted the comforter to have a quilted appearance, but I quickly realized I was making it much too large for Calico Critters and had to cut it short. I then added the lace honestly to hide how bad my sewing looks. The pillows and mattress are made of plain white felt with snowflake stickers as accents.

Oh, wow. That glue job. I should repaint that part.

I really, really love the wallpaper in the parents’ room. It’s such a gorgeous winter scene, and the colors are perfect. I like the grey dollhouse carpet as well. It matches so nicely!
Thank you for reading!
This will be my first actual content post. I hope everyone likes it! Here goes nothin!
I began this Winter Wonderland themed dollhouse in December. All of my dollhouses have Calico Critters living in them, and this one has the absolutely precious Marshmallow Mouse family inside. They are so cute–the triplets have tiny pink hearts in their ears!
The house is not finished yet. It needs shingles, but I abhor shingles, so I’ve been putting it off… It could also use some paint touch-ups and such. Oh, and the roof is… well, it needs help.
(Pictured above: front and back of house, please excuse the mess around it–crafting is messy business)
My plan is to go room by room, and point out little details, as well as providing an over all picture for each room. This post will cover the triplet’s room at the very top.
I used cotton balls to give the appearance of snow in the room. The carpet is white glitter felt. I also added snowflake stickers, and that picture of a penguin sleeping on the moon. I don’t know who the artist is, but if someone lets me know, I’ll be happy to credit them. On one side, there are some board games, like Candyland, Snakes and Ladders, and a Lego game. The other side features a little icy igloo play mat and some toys.

The mountains, igloo, ball, car, and Elsa and Anna from the Disney movie “Frozen” were all handmade from polymer clay. The little mat was also handmade using blue and white felt.

I did not make the bed frames. They are the Calico Critter triplet bunk bed set. I did make the pillow and blanket, and I glued the snowflakes onto the front of each bed. I think they turned out really cute.
Okay, that’s all for now! Thank you so much for reading.
You are loved and appreciated, and I hope you have a wonderful day!
