Dollhouse Update

I thought I would show you some changes I made to my little dollhouse.  I can't believe it's been 2 years since my Dad finished assembling it and gave it to me.  It became very clear to me early on this was going to be a longterm project.    It wasn't going to be decorated and furnished overnight.  A lot like decorating my own home.  There are so many options to weigh.  But, I had no trouble picking out the paint color for the 2nd level bedroom:  pink!! 

Hanging the curtains added the right level of softness and I just love how the little spaniel looks right at home in the soft feminine bedroom.  He reminds me of my childhood dog, Sparky, a cocker spaniel.  I loved petting his silky black ears with wavy fur.

I found this vintage sewing machine at Hobby Lobby and knew it had to go in my home.

I added a pick chenille bedspread to the bed and teddy looks right at home.  Pretty and feminine, just the place to escape from the troubles of this life and to dream.

That completes my little tour of the bedroom.  I hope you enjoyed it!

Decorating for Valentine's Day

I dressed up my front porch a wee bit for Valentine's Day.   I've been noticing lots of burlap on blogs as of late.  At first I wasn't so smitten because the texture seemed too coarse for my taste. 

But, I decided it was just the right texture and color to match the beige on my outdoor chairs.  To it I added a small yarn flower and felt heart.   It kind of reminds me of a package. 

The clouds seem to have camped out for good in Indiana so the bright red is just the pick me up my outdoor space needs.  I guess it's my way of combating the winter doldrums. 

Happy Valentine's Day my friends!

Kitchen Love

I completed a little project for my kitchen.  Just a little something special to brighten the mood during these long days of winter.  How has your weather been?  We've had anything from warm rainy days to windy cold days. 

Today, we are getting some snow.  The ground is becoming quite white and it is pretty to watch coming down.  So these little towels with snowflake print go perfectly with our weather!

After sewing on the ruffle I decided to add a monogram - it could match your name or could correspond to the days of the week.

I think these would make lovely housewarming, hostess or bridal shower gifts.  Easy to do and easy to personalize.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and are staying warm!!

Love to you my friends,
