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.

hi everyone!

i finally carved out some time to devote to my dollhouse.  honestly i think i was feeling a little intimidated by the next step which was windows...lots and lots of little trim pieces to be painted and glued and there were rubber bands involved and i pictured rubber bands snapping and shooting trim pieces around the room  EEK!

BUT i really wanted to get to the parts of the dollhouse that come AFTER windows so i finally dove in:
and this is only half of them - i primed them ALL and then painted the exterior ones in the yellow trim color.  the other half are for the interior and will get a coat of white.  i have to say - it actually was not that big of a deal after all and NO pieces were sent flying by rubber bands!

i also got the shutter pieces glued together:

it was very exciting to put them all on - the house is really looking nice i must say!

i got the tower roof done too:

so i could begin putting on the last of the gingerbread

of course i had my usual little baby helper

isn't he just way too cute - i LOVE him and he is SUCH a total momma's boy!

what do y'all think???  it has ended up with a bit more yellow than i had originally intended...and the door will be dark purple of course!

tomorrow i am venturing out with my buddy Christine to Once Upon A Time - a fabulous toy store with an incredible dollhouse section.  afterwards we are heading to my fave mexican restaurant to eat!

i hope you all have a fabby weekend!!!
