Dollhouse Things

I've been having such a hard time finding pieces of furniture and things for the dollhouse, but on a visit to ArtScraps here in St. Paul, I found some little decorative bits for fancifying the house:
Planters!  I think I will have to go to the pet store and get some fishtank greenery to fill the planters.  Some fake mini-seaweed would work, right?  I will also need to paint them...shiny gold maybe?  I still have gold spray paint from two Halloweens ago.

And then I found these scrapbooking pieces:
They are plastic sticky frames for embellishing scrapbook pages, but I think they will work as wall frames.  I'll have to find some fancy photos to stick in them.

Anyway, that's it.  Oh, but I guess I should report that there was a furniture death.  The sink from the bathroom set committed suicide or was murdered by the cat when it fell off my shelf.  Poor thing.   I may be able to glue it back to good health.   For full disclosure, I suppose you should also know that I let Z play with some dollhouse furniture and she got her paws on the kitchen cupboards (I did not protest strongly enough) and promptly tore off a door.  Remember in Goonies when they gave Chunk the framed map to hold?  That's my Z.  She breaks everything.  In her defense, of course, she's only five.

  1. I'm imagining some of those random photos I saw when we were antiquing. Maybe a bigger one cut down smaller. Like random kids lined up by height in front of a car in the front yard.
