Lily Cottage by Julie McLaughlin

This enchanting fairy house by artist Julie McLaughlin sold for over $1000 on eBay this week. So, here it is, in the artist's own words, a tour of Lily Cottage:

"This OOAK (One of a Kind) SOLID WOOD fairy home features an enchanting exterior with fabulously artsy DRIFTWOOD TRIM, spanish m
oss ROOF, Diamond GRID windows, VINE trim and personality galore! The front door has been painted with a 3 step paint technique and decorated with VINTAGE JEWELRY findings.The driftwood pieces I found as is and were rarely altered or cut, forming into interesting window casings, roof and other structural elements, letting their natural form determine their placement. Lush green florals and VERY REALISTIC LILIES tower over the structure while BABY faux MUSHROOMS sprout from the seed pod WINDOW BOXES. A mossy PLANTER filled with mushrooms and florals welcome fairy guests to the quaint PORCH.

"This home features 3 rooms and measures appx. 20" tall, 18" wide and 16" deep. A perfect cottage size dollhouse if space is an issue.The interior has an antiqued-stained wall color technique (as does the exterior), several inset tiny green GLASS PORT HOLE WINDOWS (which look great when light shines through) and a fabulous staircase connecting both floors. The kitchen and living room have working floral ceiling chandeliers, lit by tiny flickering LED lights. Miniature florals and greenery drape from window casings, softening the lines, making a cozy retreat for any fairy."

Miss Muffet Dollhouse by Robin Carey

Miss Muffet Doll House: yet another darling creation by Robin Carey. You may remember her as the artist of the English Country Cottage and the Van Buren Dollhouse featured last year. Her impeccable craftsmanship, creativity and techniques have me at constant awe!

I have to say, my favorite in this house has to be the stained glass, and the flowers that are everywhere! Also my favorite: the awesome marble floor. The delicate railings, the sweet pink and floral wallpapers remind me of sugar and spice and everything nice. I am sure Miss Muffet is positively delighted to live in this house. No spiders allowed though ... tame or otherwise!

Frida Kahlo's Studio by Elsa Mora

This charming dollhouse inspired by Mexican painter Frida Kahlo was created by Elsa Mora for her daughter Natalie. I think it is very true to the vibrant artistic spirit of Frida. I love the miniature paintings and the little doll of the artist herself dressed in traditional Mexican dress.
