Christmas Dollhouse!

 First of all, I'd like to say thank you to Kim K for inspiring me to create this Christmas dollhouse!  Although I've decorated the outsides of dollhouses before (see this post to see this year's dollhouse), I've never done anything to the insides of any of my houses for the holidays.  But Kim does such an amazing job decorating her dollhouses for every holiday, I thought I'd give it a try.
 
And I'm so glad I did!  It was such fun finding ways to decorate-I looked around at the things I already had, and found most of what I needed.  But my other great source was searching thrift shops in their Christmas section!  Christmas ornaments are perfect, because so many of them are miniatures.  A couple more small purchases at the craft store, some quick projects on my sewing machine, and I had plenty of items with which to decorate!
 
 Since I already had this dollhouse displayed in the room where our tree is, it was the perfect candidate.  This one is the Keystone I showed you here.  It was mostly furnished, but I did borrow some items from other houses to complete it for Christmas.
 
 I tried to add decorations to every room, just so that it all looks festive!
 
 Anyway, now I'm going to shut up and just let the pictures do the talking.  I'll start the tour up in the bathroom (this family has so much Christmas spirit, they even have decorations in their bathroom!) and end in the family room where the real festivities are taking place!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Oh, it really was so much fun!  I can't believe I didn't do it sooner!  I hope you enjoyed the tour, and if you haven't seen Kim's blog before, be sure to check it out- she has the most amazing vintage Christmas decorations (as well as every other holiday!) and adorable dollhouses tours, too!

How fantastic! It's perfectly PERFECT! I can feel the Christmas magic in each of those sweet little rooms. I have to say that you totally made my day. It's the end of my semester at the University, grades due with classes needing to be created for the next semester. Thanks for the mini escape. HUGS!
