Miss Frobisher's Cottage


There was something about the faraway look on Miss Frobisher's eyes that made me go back to her photo. She reminded me of my mother staring out her kitchen window like she often does ~ she still calls me everyday before she sits down for dinner to make sure that I have had my meal.

Miss Frobisher's Cottage is the first dollhouse built by Grazhina from her own design. It is a little cottage in the woods, much like Grandma's house in The Little Red Riding Hood.


My favorite feature of the house is the stone fireplace. When I look at it, I can almost feel the cool smoothness of the stones. It is hard to believe Grazhina created the chimney stones from scrap plywood!

I love this dollhouse project from Grazhinia. Very nicely done and put together. This one gives great ideas and inspiration.

I am gathering up my courage to start on my Garfield Kit and Grazhina's dollhouse photos are truly inspirational! Thanks Grazhina for sharing them with us :)

I love your dollhouse. I love the detail. Beautiful lighting when your lady looks out the window. First picture.

All credit for the photos goes to Grazhina herself. She herself takes photos of her wonderful dollhouse mini creations!

Dear Maria from Finland,
I was blown away when I visited your website. May I showcase some of the photos on this blog?
