Evalina Rose and her little sister Posy Anna are the main characters of a series of children's stories that I am writing. In this blog I will share the final stages of crafting their half scale house--Honeysuckle Cottage--and the miniature stuff that will make up the settings of their stories.

Happy Fourth of July

My newest  bear has no name, but he is almost ready for the Fourth of July.   I did not sew his  collar down in  time for photo.
Happy Fourth of July!   Have you ever exercised with weights on your legs?  Well I have, and when you take them off, it feels like you are flying.  Such is the case with moving from half scale to one-inch scale...every thing seems so big and my hands feel as though they have shrunk.  I have spent the last week getting our Beach House ready while Annabelle attended Ballet camp.  Today I will add the porch roof and we will start applying the wallpaper.  I am going to put flagstone down on the bottom floors with Paperclay, make tiles for the bathroom floor and am undecided on the bed rooms.  

Here are the wallpapers form Itsy Bitsy Mini.  The sea horses are for the bathroom, the dogs for the living room, the roses for the girl's attic room and the pink Toile for the grandparent's bed room.  I absolutely adore them.  Annabelle picked all but the Toile.  Here is a link to wallpaper   http://dollhouse-miniature-wallpaper.com/shop/

I have not forgotten about Honeysuckle cottage.  Though, I am thinking of renaming it because I realize that if I am going to name it after a flower, I should have that flower be a main part of the garden.  I am not sure I can make half scale  honeysuckle.

Have a wonderful day,


  1. It's all looking good and so exciting to have doors that open and close! My childhood d/house had no doors! The wallpapers are an excellent choice. I love Posy's bed, I'm sure you knitted the blanket - beautiful!

  2. Your new bear is so cute...
    I like the wallpapers.
    The Beach house looks fantastic.

  3. Wat een mooie dingen lat je allemaal zien. Mooi strandhuis ben je aan het bouwen. Het roze behang rechts onder vind ik super romantisch en zou ik wel in de slaapkamer van mijn poppenhuis willen hebben.

    Groetjes Xandra

  8. Hi Lucy, I love your new bear, he's adoreable and the Beach House is looking amazing, the wallpapers that you and Annabelle have chosen are all lovely. I think it might be very challenging to make honeysuckle, but you do some amazing things so maybe it's possible. I still have to make a Mermaid for my Mermaid's cottage, so far I only have a head :)
