Room by Room-The Beach

You guys may remember that I got the Our Generation Beach House some time ago, and it is still one of my absolute favorite playsets. It's big, functional, and overall well made. Though Ayla did run down the batteries in it in one day.
The beach house is Arista's room. She's got the whole place to herself.

Sorry, it was a weird day when I tried to get these pics.
This is the swimming pool. It's a dog pool that I got in a medium size and had to cut to fit it in here. The "water" is blue tissue paper over bubble wrap. The floaties are can floaties from Dollar Tree.

There's a lemonade stand at the beach, of course.

This is a way better picture of the pool, but you can see I messed the background up. I glued it and the glue bleed through. Ugh.

It wouldn't be complete without a couple chairs, a towel, and a cooler.

Well, I hope you guys like it.
Thanks for checking it out.

The Front Door- Room By Room Series

As you know, I've been working on and showing a new series called Room By Room. These are rooms of the dollhouse. These rooms are never really "done" but this is a preview of the room. So, you might see the same room in the series twice as new things get added or changed.
This is a project that I really wanted to work with Hubby on but we never had the time. Well, then we got stuck in quarantine and suddenly, we had time. Still, this project kept getting put on the back burner. At 1st Hubby was rearing to go, but once the glue dried, he had lost some interest. But all things must get finished eventually.
This is before we burnt the wood to make it darker.

Here's just seeing how everything fits.
Oh, the door is a top to a wooden tool box that Hubby broke a long time ago. When he pitched the toolbox, I nabbed that lid. It's the perfect size at just over 19 inches.
Here's Hubby working on the awning.

Here's a progress picture. 
And here is the finished product!

Here's Phin to show us around.

In this pic, I didn't have the foam for the flooring yet, I just had a couple of pieces.
The final product has a solid piece of this black foam. My Aunt gets me cut away pieces of it from the RV factory.

The dangling flowers are just there so I don't lose them.

How cute is this tiny mailbox that I got from Ebay. I think it says that it's Barbie sized, but it was perfect for here.
The key hole is from Hobby Lobby.
The door handle is a drawer pull from Lowes.

Again, this is before the good foam.
Here's the good foam. You can see that it goes across the whole floor so that it's not higher away from the grass. And I can plant things in it!! Very shallow things, but you'll probably see a garden in it soon.

Now, these flowers in the sky, I'm not a fan either BUT this is the gable part of the she shed and you could see into the rafters and I didn't care for that. This seemed like the easiest option for now.

I love how this turned out so much! 
Happy Anniversary to me!
Thanks for checking it out.

Altani's Birthday- A comic story

I love this comic. I really model Altani's personality after Tina from Bob's Burgers, and this is really obvious from this comic. Here are some of the pictures that I took inspiration from:

Need a mask for your dolls?

I probably should have bought masks for my dolls a long time ago, but when we were in quarantine I was just so busy. We planted gardens, spent time as a family, it was magical. But I came across the My Life piƱata playset and it had a blindfold in it. Guess what? It fits as a super cute mask. Enjoy!

If you have this set, now your girls can social distance in style!

Room by Room -Julie's Bedroom

Julie's Room
Welcome to one of my favorite posts in the Room By Room series.
Julie's room was one of the most fun, most expensive, and largest of all the rooms.
It had to be to accommodate her bathroom.

So before the dollhouse was even done, I came across these:
They are paper that my husband made in college.
We've just been hanging on to them all this time.
Well, I knew I had to use them in Julie's room.

The frames started off red, but I didn't really like that in the bedroom, so you'll see in the bedroom pics that I painted them yellow. Way better.
You can see the pictures hanging over her dresser.

Here's her fish tank BEFORE Ayla destroyed it. It's a My Life tank and I love the way the fish go on a little peg board on the background, BUT once it comes off the shelf it's a mess and hard to get the fish back on the board.

Julie collects Barbie. I've been carrying these around in my jewelry box since I collected Barbies 25 years ago.

So that's Julie's Room.
Hope you love it.
