I can't believe it's been over a month again since I have posted- I am really struggling to get back into the blogging habit. So, what have I been up to? I've been slowly working on my steampunk dollhouse project- right now I am thinking about the wheels for the house and so I've been stalled a bit. I know I want wagon wheels for the front cab and track wheels like a tank for the back half. Wagon wheels take patience to make! Here's my pile of wheel work:
My sister had a fisher price dollhouse when she was growing up and I had a Tomy dollhouse. They are both in really bad shape from years of use, so I have been bashing them. I'm starting with the Fisher Price. The outside was horrible so I have been using upholstery tack strips to add siding and I'm going to do egg carton bricks on the bottom foundation. I'm not sure what colors to paint this house after the siding is on-any suggestions?
http://www.papillonbleuuk.com/index.html I plan to add a footstool for the LIV doll here as well as some tables full of all kinds of cakes and other treats. This project will take me awhile, but it's something I can work on off and on as the mood strikes.
