From a coffee can to a dollhouse, this is my latest work in progress. I have not yet figured out a roof for it, but lets take a tour of this coffee can dollhouse even though it's not done yet...
Looking into the front door is the stone fireplace I built using pebbles from my yard and also some flat river stones. The oval rug I made myself believe it or not from a five foot braid! They take a long time to make.. braiding the threads then sewing it together, but it's definitely worth the time.
Both the trunks are from a lego set that my son so generously gifted to me, such a sweet boy he is! I made all the books by wrapping cardboard and paper with burlap and then painted them.
The chair, table and all the shelving I made from cuts off a tree branch.
The stairs are cuts from a tree branch and the spacers are Pistachio shells. The pictures are pieces from a necklace and I also hung a small bunch of glass buttons that my Dad gave me a long time ago..
Oh the old photo was shrunken down from a family photo and that boat, poor old thing was stepped on once and I had to carefully glue it back together.. I think it's safe now up there on the shelf where we can admire it and not touch it!
The bedding I made from a hanky.. it was never used, I bought it knowing I'd find a place in one of my dollhouses for it. I really like the colors and the pattern.
I hope you enjoyed the tour and do come back soon!
