Victorian Dollhouse - Living Room 1:12 scale, pt 2

Victorian Dollhouse Miniatures - Living Room 1:12 scale.  

This is the living room of my Greenleaf Beacon Hill dollhouse.  This room I change a lot; you will notice different rugsSometimes I will move the piano out because it takes up so much room. To see more of the outside,  see part 1 of my Victorian Dollhouse Miniatures.

These little peeps must have traveled to exotic places and have a collection throughout their house.

This is a narrow and awkward shaped room so it is difficult to get the camera in to take photos! Next post: Miniature Kitchen and Dining Room so stay tuned!

Victorian Dollhouse Miniatures, Part One


Victorian Dollhouse Miniatures. This was my first and only 1:12 scale dollhouse I made many years ago from a Greenleaf kit. It took me some time to build, then it sat for a year before I painted it, then it sat for another year before I wired and furnished it!  Right now the furniture is still in boxes after moving,  I think it has been about four years! That is Tuffy our Russian Blue cat who passed just a couple months ago, she was 19 1/2 years old. I was amazed how she could get inside the living room and barely tip anything over!

In the next coming posts I will show you the interior plus some of the room boxes and gardens I have done so stay tuned!

Retro Earrings and Hair Sticks

dangle earrings

Retro bead dangle earrings, fun hairsticks
made with my favorite vintage beads from
Austria. I am always searching for unique
beads; I found these very cool, big 20mm
Baroque style lucite beads that are
perfect for today's styles. Fun & funky,
you can dress them up with a cool retro
dress or they look great with jeans and a
t-shirt. The hair sticks are perfect for a messy
bun that is so popular today
