Our goal is to satisfy our desire for creating miniature rooms & dollhouses while helping out charity causes around the world. This is a win-win situation. We can donate more this way than by our own individual donations AND you can get a gorgeous miniature room or dollhouse for far less than you would normally pay. We also hope to raise more as a group than each individual item could be sold for. Miniature rooms will be $25 donation per entry and dollhouses will be $50 donation per entry (possibly more depending on the dollhouse). This blog will serve as our progress/update site as well as our auction site.

oh look what i found!

hi all!
i am so sad to say that i have not gotten much work done on my dollhouse recently.  instead we ventured off for the weekend in our new camper trailer - heavenly!  i DID take my stack of back issues of Dollhouse Collectibles magazines.  i think i have read through them each a dozen times!  so now i have a head even fuller of ideas and how-tos.  in addition i have poured over whatever i can find on the internet.  one of the things i stumbled upon was a garden scene inside of a birdcage - LOVE!

so i began hunting around for a cheap birdcage.  not much luck.  then i went in to Home Goods on a whim and found THIS and on clearance to boot!

now i need to decide what i will do with it.  like will i paint it?  will i build garden walls new orleans french quarter style? decisions decisions...what i need is a good bunch of inspiration photos to work from.  i have a couple of great books to start with on new orleans architecture - gorgeous pictures!  i may have to consult with my brother on this too!

I am heading to the DC Big Flea tomorrow - YAY!  treasure hunt time!  i also plan on getting the trim finished and windows started on my dollhouse.  i hope you all have a great weekend!

I *LOVE* this! It would be awesome for wedding decorating stuff, too! And maybe a really cute place to put a CAKE in! If you can't find a use for it, I will! LOLOLOL!
