Cavalier Cottage

Orchid dollhouse kit by Greenleaf kit bash in progress
 After sitting neglected and ignored in a box for over a year since our cross-country move from Florida to California last summer, this sweet little dollhouse is finally getting the love and attention it deserves.

It was a great distraction from all of the stuff that’s going on with Emma.  I spent several days installing beadboard on the walls…..cutting about a zillion popsicle sticks for the “hardwood” floor and “plank” ceiling……..

And painting and priming my heart out before I ended up in bed for a week with a wicked, little cold.

But I’m feeling all better now and ready to get back to work on the Cavalier Cottage!
I know it looks very, VERY white right now but I’m dreaming up ideas for all sorts of sweet and colorful accessories.  This is my “Inspiration Board” for the cottage decor…..
Orange, aqua, green, grey mood board
In my mind, the cottage is in a beautiful little beach town like Carmel, California or Martha’s Vineyard……

It’s going to be light and airy and beachy….

It’s going to have working lights, gingerbread trim, a fireplace that flickers and yes…..those French doors open to let in the ocean breezes!

And I’m already dreaming up ideas for two more houses to make an adorable little neighborhood!  I’ll tell you all about those next time!
