The Dollhouse Adventure: bedroom and nursery

Dollhouse Makeover

This is the completed exterior of the Estoril Dollhouse. One day I’d like to replace the door and windows with wood, but for now, a coat of spray paint will have to do!

We’re going to tour the upstairs bedroom and nursery today! This is a large open attic space basically, so it’s a combined bedroom and nursery. I think it works well that way, since J is such an avid interior decorator. The wide open space makes it lots of fun to rearrange furniture! more

The Dollhouse Adventure!

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen my #thecrazytailordollhouseadventures posts that have been consuming my feed! It’s finally done! J got this for her birthday a little early because I wanted to use it as decoration for her party. It turned out so well! I can thank Jessica from over at Craftiness is not Optional for some great inspiration! more

Skip Along Skort

I missed posting this while it was on sale last week, but I couldn’t NOT post it! Better late than never! I tested this cute little Skip Along skort (affiliate link) by Peekaboo Pattern Shop, and let me just say, there will be more made. How perfect for summer! Usually J wears leggings under her skirts, but in the summertime, that’s just too warm. This is the perfect solution! I’ve noticed that ready-to-wear toddler skirts usually stop having the built-in shorts around size 3T, which is really unfortunate – they still need those sometimes!! Haha! more

Pretending it’s Spring!


Hey there! It’s been so quiet around here lately….because of this:

I picked it up off kijiji for $20 and have been doing a little remodeling. And, ahem, decorating. I can thank Jessica over at Craftiness is Not Optional for the great ideas…and the links to ebay! Haha, if you want to become obsessed with miniatures, just buy a dollhouse. It’s seriously as much fun as decorating your own house! more
