Hello November

I can't believe it's November already but it marks the start of my favorite Holiday season and I'm thrilled about that. I've never been a fan of Halloween and spooky decorations but fall leaves and pumpkins, apple cider and sweater weather has always been something I look forward to.

We've decided to move the Gypsy house (again) this year so not only am I working on finishing up orders but I'm also in the middle of packing too.

I've just finished Cheri and Vivienne's orders and am currently working on Emma and Tammy. Melissa and Sophie will be started after the move and I will take one more order between now and the end of the year. Any other orders placed will be started after Christmas.

The little porch is finished and decorated for fall just in time and ready to go. I wanted to share a few photos of it here.

I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend and start to the new month. If anyone needs to get in touch with me email will be the quickest for the next couple of weeks  Back soon xoxox

French Paneled Roombox

I have such a soft spot for french paneled walls and dirty french paneled walls are even better :) 

This sweet over sized roombox sold very quickly. If you'd like to custom order one I have room for one in October before the holiday break. The cost as shown is $275 
You can email me directly if you're interested.

(here is the Etsy shop listing)
The whole thing has been done in a cottage cream paint then dirtied and aged by hand. The floor is a warm honey color and goes with the walls beautifully. Working door 

I have not added crown molding because I wasn't sure if it would take away from the wall paneling, I will leave that up to the buyer and if you'd like the molding I'll be happy to add it. 

The paneled walls are a lot more time consuming so that's why this box is a little more than regular finished roombox price and also why I don't offer them very often :)

This roombox is oversized and will have to be shipped flat. The height from the floor to the top of the wall trim is 17" so it should work for all playscale dolls. 

Made with hardwoods, pine and MDF. This room is ready to ship and will be mailed out within three business days.

Follow your Heart little Jack

We ran across this sweet little fella at a local shop and decided to bring him home and make him a few little treasures before sending him on a far away journey to explore the world... or your house, whichever you choose. We've named him Jack 

He is the softest little creamy colored bear and is ten inches from toes to the tip of his ear. His little ears are lined in a print fabric. He has a pair of soft denim overalls with a pirate print fabric to accent, a vest, corduroy explorer hat and matching jacket and a pair of blue corduroy cargo shorts. He even has a tiny little boy tie for when he's feeling fancy, maybe he's going to tea ;)

Jack has a tiny wooden hand painted and aged chest with paper inside to store his favorite toys or souvenirs from his adventures. We also made him a tiny paper pirate map to lead the way. 

He comes in a pretty blue and brown vintage style suitcase with a handle that doubles as his bed. He has a pirate print pillow case with a pillow inside, a very cozy quilt, a hand tufted cotton mattress that lays in the bottom of the suitcase and a matching bunting banner. 

If you'd like to adopt Jack you can find him in our Etsy shop or you can email me at he's a one of a kind little guy and would be a great holiday treat. 

Hope you're all having a wonderful Friday xoxoxoxo

Fall Roombox Ordering

It's hard to believe that August is almost over and September will be starting soon! I LOVE fall and cooler weather so I am very excited and looking so forward to it and of course I'm always looking forward to the last few months of the year and the fact that I am nearer to the holidays.  

When it comes to commissions and working on orders by month you have to plan things out a little more in advance in a block style format. So things will work a little differently this time of year. There are THREE more slots for roomboxes this year. One more for September and Two for October. Everything will be completed and ready to ship by the end of October/First week of November.

I will be not be taking any custom orders for the months of November or December. The only things that will be in the shop after the middle of October are finished and ready to ship items. Ordering will resume as usual in January.

If you'd like to reserve a slot just email me here and payment is not due until the week before I start your order. I am accepting layaway on all three slots ;)

I can finally say I'm caught up which is a huge relief. It only took me nine months since we moved to get here ;)  I cannot thank everyone enough for being patient. I appreciate it more than you will ever know.

The current work list is: 
Vivienne and Tina (that I'm working on)
Emma and Cheri (next week both will be started)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Sending lots of love xoxoxo

Shabby Sewing

Samar's sewing box is so sweet and I had to share photos. I'll be uploading full photos of it later this week to the "furnished rooms" tab over on the side. Just as I've always said, everything is cuter in miniatures...

The Little Blue Cottage Furnished..

As you know, The Little Blue Cottage sold and the lady who purchased the house also wanted it furnished. I'm sure she had no idea how long it would take for me to get it all put together but these things are sometimes just out of my control. I wanted everything to be perfect and I do love the way the final house came together.

I want to take a few minutes to share photos of it with you all and to thank her a million times over for being so patient while we poured our hearts into this little project, hopefully it will bring her and her family so much joy. And I hope you all will enjoy seeing the final result <3<3

So welcome one final time to the Little Blue Cottage.... 

Please.. come inside :)

( Oh and to my darling friend Vicky Lovejoy, Please tell me you can make another of these mug racks? It was perfect for the space)
