Well it's been quite a while since I've posted, so I decided I better check in and let everyone know I'm still here!! Sometimes I just don't have anything very interesting to share, you know it's just the day to day stuff, not so inspiring :) But I have been working on something recently that I thought I would show you today...
Do you know what this is?This is a wine box turned gypsy dollhouse! I found this box at the flea market for $12.00 and after discussing it with my husband, decided it would make the perfect little rustic house for Raven and Romney, in case you don't remember, Raven and Romney are the gypsy's that are living in an old servants house on the Valentine estate, you can read about that back a few posts. I turned the box up sideways and put feet on it so it could open easily, then my husband made a shelf to serve as second floor. (matching the stain was no easy task!!) The windows, shutters and doors are just pictures I found on the internet and printed out and then I used Modge Podge to paste them. Jerry made me a little overhang for the front and we put the shingles on and stained it gray to resemble weathered wood. I added flower boxes and vine and voila! The gypsy house is born!! I'm really rather pleased with how it looks considering it's humble beginnings.
Love and blessings to you and yours,
