Maine Cottage

My first "proper" dollhouse. I bought a lot of the supplies for it, but built the frame of it with my father's help from scratch. All right, he did most of the building. :) It was, on reflection, frustrating to make because I spent what felt like a lot of money on bits and bobs from dollhouse stores, but they were never enough to make it pretty and perfect. All the best parts were handmade or found from other places - a painting over the bed, some of the furniture, the music box shaped like a piano.



This particular dollhouse no longer exists; I took it apart several years ago when I got an idea to make a wizard's tower. There was not enough space in my house for both, and I was dissatisfied with this one, so there you go. Many of the objects were recycled into other things, of course.
