Sweet Dreams

Hello there!
Who would have thought that: the room is almost finished :-) But first, some of you made compliments for the wallpaper. It is "Rose Floral - cream (WAL 0894) and I bought it from artofmini.com. When you look through their wallpapers section, you will find this paper on page 10.
Sunday I had unexpectedly some time for my own and I used it for painting. I did a lot of drawings when I was in my teenage days but nothing of that kind within the last 20 years (pffffff...!!!) but then it was so much fun to paint the "art" for my mini-bedroom by myself! I guess, I will make some more :-)
It is above on the left side.

From a little distance it looks really good :-)))))
But that was not all. Ilona encouraged me to paint the floor white and I did it. I also glued the same wallpaper behind the open door and made a dish shelf for the wall, so that it´s not complete empty but leaves some room for the dollhouse people to move (but only if they are size 0).
For the ceiling I used strips of thin cardboard that I painted and then just some wooden strips from the craft store as timbers.

In the evening...

And at daylight:

Some more decoration is needed, but it is already quite cozy, isn´t it?  Maybe I should tell
my wonderful husband that this is the look I want for our bedroom ...haha!
Is the style of your dollhouse similar to your real home? That would be interesting to know!

Have a wonderful week!

Progress in the Ballerina´s House

Hello Everybody!
The lazy blogger is back with a little progress in the ballerina´s house. A friend of mine is visiting us tomorrow and as she´s always interested in my houses I want to be able to show her at least one half-finished room.

I am adoring one very romantic room in Lea Frisoni´s book for ages and now I want to try to make my own romantic mini-room. So weeks ago I started with making new walls with panelling with a lot of cardboard.
The swags are embossed paper I found in a store. Very useful :-)

I still have to make a decision about the color of the floor (mayby paint them white?), then the ceiling....but not today :-)...

The little girl in the frame is my stepmother, it is so nice to have her here in mini, too! 

 These two guys are the result of my attempts in needlefelting "vintage style" bears, wonderful job when hubby´s watching football on TV ...

Today I found a kit for making luggage which I had completely forgotten about. It is from Hilda Burden and I think I got it from ebay uk and it was very easy to make. On the suitcases I put a little Het Loo-dollshouse from Volker Arnold. I made a mistake when buying it as I actually wanted a larger one. But then it was also
easy to built and there are even some trees in different sizes and a few horses with this kit....and I love it :-)

That´s all for today. I want to thank you for your comments on my last post (Miranda is very amused, too!) and  also "Welcome!!!" to my new followers! 

Hugs, Sandra
