Well hello! I know I haven't been visiting my blog as frequently since the kids are out for summer vacation. Trying to keep up with three kiddos and their summer camps, bible schools, etc. is definitely a full-time job. But I do have to admit that the kids running around isn't the only reason for my absence...
Ever since acquiring my big dollhouse, I have sort of become OBSESSED! I have spent countless hours online, learning about vintage dollhouses and furniture and dolls. It's funny, even though I have other dollhouses, I really haven't ever spent much time furnishing them and working on them- I looked at them more as decoration, I guess. But with this dollhouse, I've really gotten interested in refurbishing and decorating it. I see an even more pronounced collection brewing. I am in love with the dollhouses and furnishings like those on this blog, and boy, does she have a serious collection of them! I know I'd have to do some real sweetening up to my husband in order to even come close to that though!!
But anyway, onto the point of this post. I've decorated the nursery and added some little dollhouse children to the residence.
Above is the way the nursery looked when I received the house (the changing table and matching white beds were already mine).
And here's how it looks now! I found the two Strombecker pink beds that matched the existing one on Ebay, and found the little twin girls on Etsy. I am really in love with the little girls- so, so cute!! I already had the baby and the little boy.
Aren't those girls sweet?
I also wallpapered (it's actually scrapbook paper), painted, and added artwork to the walls, as well as some little vintage flashcards for the kids to practice with!
Their own little play table in the nursery!
I do have to say that I'm a little bummed that I'm already done with the nursery, since it's the most fun, and fits my style the most. I wish every room could be a nursery- how I'd love to decorate a house like that! So I hope that I have just as much fun working on the other rooms. And if not, then I guess I'll just have to get another dollhouse with another nursery to decorate!!
