Sneak peak: Dollhouse redecorating in progress

Mabel and Mavis are finally on their way to respite from the very brown scheme of the bedroom they inherited from prior owners.
The rug is the inspiration piece!
And our favorite artisanal pillow will "go," in an eclectic way.
When JoJo of Tahoma Beadworks & Photography was sharing a nifty array of June/July projects, she included a piece of needlepoint that I immediately said needed a dollhouse. My goal was to corrupt her utterly into the miniature-building world, but she was protected by phalanxes of existing hobbies. She very kindly offered to send me the needlepoint, and it's perfect for what I want to do with Mabel and Mavis' bedroom!

(I thought I'd have the whole project done, but can I find the fabric scrap I want for the bedding? Of course not. I may be going to Joann this weekend, willy-nilly.)

Meanwhile, my parents apparently have pheromones that attract 1:24 chairs, as in swift succession, a flock of silver chairs (destined for the boutique hotel) arrived...

Music listeners will stay alert!

... followed by a foursome of classic side chairs, mostly intended for Big Head Maude's modern abode.

My home lighting was so bad that I put the purple chair in the tan-and-aqua
room because it looked tan. Note to self: buy light bulbs for my new lamps.
I think I need to do some dollhouse cleaning and improving!

    1. It really did! I've had a bizarre couple weeks of work, so no progress has been made, but we're down to the last couple weeks of insane heat, after which I have more energy!

  2. The needlepoint is nice, but my eye is immediately drawn to the little music room. I love the walls!!!! (Hmmm....we're both on silver standards this summer!)
