Are you looking for a dollhouse that's already built and finished?

Hi there everyone!  I always have so many requests for dollhouses that are already assembled and lately I can hardly keep up with all the new custom dollhouse builds to have any available for sale now.  But I do have one available.  It's this beautiful Front Opening Greenaces Dollhouse by Real Good Toys.  It's on sale for $1,150.00.  See my Completed, Finished and On Sale Tab above to see more of this beauty.

Customized Newport Dollhouse with Addition

Hi Everyone
I have just finished working on a Newport Dollhouse with Addition.  This is a very customized dollhouse!  My client has chosen to upgrade the dollhouse with custom railings, windows and door for the exterior along with interior finishing touches with lighting, wallpaper, trims, stair banisters and much, much, more!  all with a unique layout that truly makes it one of a kind. Here are some pictures:

This is a white tone on tone color scheme with gray shingles and foundation.  The windows have been upgraded, railings are all custom, the shingles are both octagon and square for a beautiful victorian look. My client plans to add her own flowers and exterior accents. I know she has a lot of plans for the inside too!
 2 porch lights welcome visitors as they come up the porch steps.
 All custom railings (different from the ones that come with the kit) have been added as well as the grill above the porch.
 I shingled the roof in a mixture of gray square and gray octagon shingles. 
 On the tower I added a small balcony. 
 Here is the interior!  All rooms have 1-2 ceiling lights that add so much warmth and glow to the rooms. 
 I painted the hardwood floors with a whitewash giving the dollhouse a light and airy feel. 
 Here's a good look at the stairs with the "Victoria Stair" laser cut pieces from Heritage Laser Works. I added the banisters around these pieces and painted them white to match the baseboards and crown molding.
 Here is the dining and living room that leads into the beautiful kitchen!
 Here's my favorite room. the master bedroom.  I love the wallpaper my client chose for this room.  I looks great with the windows and beautiful chandelier.
 Here is the tower hallway that leads up to the tower room at the top.  It has a pulldown attic and stairs. 
 I love this wallpaper too with the scalloped trim.
 Attic pulldown with chain.
 The colors blend so well.
 Tower area- I added stairs on each side of the top tier so the "people" can go down to the  rooftops on either side.
 Notice the tower rear is closed but it is hinged to open....see next photo
 Open- cute tower room with light, leads down to the massive rooftop area.

The windows work too :)  So cool!  This was a very big project!  I am so pleased with how it turned out- because it's just how my client wanted it!  That's custom!

Happy Holidays from Little Darlings

Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping in to check out my dollhouse blog.  I have been soooo busy these past few months and I haven't had a lot of time to post anything new.  I have taken so many new dollhouse orders and restoration and repair orders I will be busy long after Christmas is over.  First of all, let me say thank you to all my new customers! 
Here are just a few pictures of the dollhouses I've been working on lately.  Also, I wanted to add that if your looking at my dollhouses for the first time and are interested in a dollhouse for Christmas please note I only have time to work on 1 more Alison Jr or Vermont Farmhouse dollhouse to be finished in time for Christmas.  If you are more flexible on your time schedule please contact me by phone or email and I will be happy to assist you.

Hello Friends

Busy times here in dollhouse land.  I have had one purchase order after another and haven't taken the time to post much information on my blog- sorry!  It's good to be busy though and I'm gearing up for the holidays and have already scheduled new dollhouse orders for January and beyond!  Wonderful!  I'm so glad I can build dollhouses and be creative.  It's lots of fun.  A few notes, I am extremely busy with Christmas orders so if you're looking for a finished dollhouse for a loved one for Christmas please call me and I will let you know if I can squeeze in one or two more dollhouses for Christmas delivery.  Otherwise please note I do have a finished dollhouse, already assembled and ready to go on sale now.  It is a large Victorian Farmhouse.  Please see click on my "Completed, Finished and On Sale Now" Tab above for all the details.  It is on sale for $500.00 but I would be willing to negotiate a price if you are interested....after all I could use the room for the builds I'm working on now!  Thanks for visiting my blog, feel free to contact me if you have any dollhouse questions or restoration requests.  Dawn

Half Scale Finished Georgian Dollhouse

Hi Everyone
I wanted to post a few pictures of the little half scale dollhouse I just finished working on.  This is the front opening Georgian Dollhouse.  It turned out so cute! 
 This little dollhouse is half scale or 1/2 inch = 1 foot so it is only 17 inches high and 17 inches wide and 11 inches deep.  If you want a dollhouse but are small on space a half scale dollhouse is a perfect option for you.  Please check out my online store to see the half scale dollhouse I have for sale.  Sorry this one is taken but enjoy the pictures!! 


 The rooms in this dollhouse are so cute- they are only 5 inches high!!
