Progress On The Dollhouse

As promised, here are some pictures of the dollhouse I am building for my niece.  (Please ignore the mess surrounding it, LOL!)  I started putting the siding on today.  You can see it on the front of the house by the porch.  I am a slow worker so this may take me awhile to get done.  It took me three days to do the shingles!!  If it wasn't for all the pesky housework...and laundry...and cooking....and helping with homework....and .... you get the picture!  I wish I could stay up at night and work on stuff while everyone else is fast asleep, but I am not a night person!!  I just can't keep my eyes open past about 10 p.m.  The sad part is, I'm not much of a morning person either!!  LOL!! 
    I have some touch ups to do on the outside of the house when I am done with the siding.  Then I can do the window boxes.  After that I think I can move on to the inside and get a few things finished in there before I start decorating (my favorite part!).  I'm sure I will think of a hundred more things that need to be done before I get that far though. 

On a completely different subject, I am soooo excited about the upcoming Harry Potter movie!!!  I get chills every time I watch the trailer!  I am a huger HP fan just like a lot of you are I'm sure.   If there is anyone who hasn't heard, part 1 of the movie comes to theatres on November 19.  The best part of it is that day is also my birthday!!  What a great b-day gift for me :o)  This is the big one though, I will be 30 this year! EEEKK!!!   I think I might cry!!

Take care everyone and have a great weekend!!


  1. Hi I feel the same about my dolls house work is getting in the way and I am itching to just play all day with my house and collectable dolls. Also I adore Harry Potter and cannot wait for the last enstallment at the cinema

    Love your dolls house

  2. Looking Good! did you have any problems with the roof? I built one with that type of roof and it drove me crazy, thank goodness the shingles covered up the mess.

  3. Thank you so much ladies!
    Victoria, The roof was a nightmare!! I almost chucked the whole thing out the window! I could not get the wood to curve like they say it is supposed to so I just ended up puting it on like a regular roof and then covering it with shingles like you. I definitely won't be doing another of that roof style!

  4. Yes Jeannette I knew it, I think men design these houses hee hee. I wanted to do the house you're doing, The Lily? and saw the roof and said No Way!


  5. Looking good! Love HP, and the fact that JKR insists we get to see it in the UK first, a change from every other film lol

  6. Ya tienes mucho trabajo adelantado. Me encanta los colores que le has puesto a la fachada.
    En el interior veo que tiene esquinas y rincones que la hacen muy real. Casi todas las casas son cuadradas y sin dobles fondos.
    Cuando construimos algo el entorno es un poco desastre hasta que terminamos :)
    Aprovecho este comentario para darte la bienvenida a mi blog y espero que pases buenos ratos cuando lo visites.
    Besos Clara.
