My Cafe Ole Cottage

This house is on eBay right now! Here is the link:

As I stood on my balcony this morning, enjoying the sweet breeze and spring blooms, I thought it was the perfect day for me to take pictures of my latest dollhouse, the Cafe Ole Cottage! My coffee-loving hubby, Shah, picked out the colors for me ~ needless to say, it was after a trip to Starbucks!

This dollhouse was an experiment of sorts; this was my first attempt at creating clay roof shingles. I used self-hardening Marblex clay and painted the roof with dark chocolate acrylic paint and a soft latte wash. My hats off to the paper-clay dollhouse artists: the process was indeed a test of my patience!

And now on to my love affair with fabric wallpaper! I discovered the perfect fabric to create my faux wood panels: it has a crackle print and comes in various colors. For this Coffee and Cream inspired home, I picked out fabrics in warm beige and pale coffee. The chair rail and moldings were created with lace, which was considerably cheaper than wood molding, and a lot easier to apply. I am in love with this combination: so much so, that I bought a yard more of the fabrics for my next dollhouse!

Mini Room Boxes by Lenor Johnson

While doing some housecleaning, my friend Lenor Johnson found some more photos of her room-boxes that she so kindly shared with us. I have always been a fan of the "old world" touch in the brilliant paper-clay creations of Lenor. I am always left amazed at how she captures realism in her art: from the sooty fireplace to the draping shawl and floppy pillow: I always feel like I am right there inside her dollhouse!
