One thing I dislike doing in dollhouses is painting all the moulding and trim. Dentil moulding is particularly annoying because of the teeth.
Sounds comical but true:
You have to get the brush between all those little teeth or bare wood will show (esp once you glue it to the wall) and it will look awful. So small brush, paint, slide between each one. Tedious.
But it’s done and glued in the music room, so yay. Now that I have the kitchen mostly done I’m going back and putting on finishing touches to the other rooms that I either was too bored to do at the time or didn’t have the materials for.
Printies in many scales. Wallpaper, books, tablecloths, labels, rugs, fabric patterns, and many, many accessories
Printies (My Small Obsession)
All kinds of links to sites with all kinds of printies (all scales)–wallpaper, flooring, boxes, plates, books, etc etc etc
Wendy's Minis (Pillows galore!)
The beautiful, handcrafted pillows in my collection come from Wendy Smale. In addition to pillows, she offers crystals, minerals, shells, and “scientific collections” for the dollhouse.
Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls, and Toys
Lovely museum in a historic house (house is worth the visit, even if you’re not interested in minis). The collection ranges from antiques to modern artisans. Note the extensive tiny circus! The trip through narrow streets of historic Denver is worth it.
Mini Time Machine Museum, Tucson, AZ
Must be seen to be believed. A huge collection of dollhouses and miniature settings made by prominent artisans, as well as a solid collection of antiques, in a beautiful building designed around the collection. All I can say is… Just Go!
