I added this cute red coffee table, a purchase from my friend, Magpie Ethel's vintage finds Etsy shop. I can decorate the little room by removing it from its insert in the wall but the problem is that lots of little things, like the reading glasses, fall and get lost easily. This time, I used the smallest dab of glue to hold things down.
This sweet basket is from one of the Club Little House swaps. I can't remember though whose creation it is...but I am thinking it would be great fun to do another Club Little House swap*. What do you think? You in?
I framed a whole bunch of little images. The "Our Happy Home" one is actually a sticker from one of Brenda Walton's paper collections from a while ago. Isn't it adorable? Other images are cut from magazines and catalogs. The little glass vase on the fireplace is a miniature perfume bottle.
You can hardly see this corner of the room because it is behind the door. A stack of magazines and a book add to the realism, don't you think? And I love that phone!
I made some frames from Dresden. The framed dog, an image I found in a magazine, is framed with strips of Dresden cut and assembled as a frame.
The two framed images shown above were made from floral Dresden layered over scrapbook paper. The roses picture is framed with an old tintype frame.
I made the sandwich on the button plate for one of the very first Club Little House exchanges...maybe even the first.
I think I've shown you these before but the Lincoln log house and the elephant pull toy were made from kits found here.
*It's been so long since a Club Little House swap, maybe I need to tell you about it. It's a swap or gift exchange where each participant makes a dozen of the same little thing. Everything gets mailed to me and then I organize boxes of 12 different tiny dollhouse miniatures for each Club Little House member. It was enormously popular and so much fun. But it was a little crazy to organize. A bit time consuming. But perhaps we could do another soon...what do you think? It would make a fun mother-child summer project!
