Dollhouse

79 pieces,

and over 3 hours later,

my wonderfully gigantic dollhouse was done!
Why build a dollhouse you ask?

Because Moo and I have grown tired of plain old shelves,

and a dollhouse is pretty much a giant shelf...except a lot more colorful and fun!

Moo agrees.

What a great idea!

Eternal Lizdom said...

My daughter has one similar to this and I've seen pics where people use the dollhouse as a shelf when the kids outgrow it. So fun!

Lolita said...

That's BRILLIANT !!!

Tori said...

I love the thought of everything having a home...literally!

Miss Maple said...

What a wonderful dollhouse. That's a really good idea to use it as a shelf and it goes with the colourful things you own. Would like to see more! Hugs from Germany!

tinajo said...

Super fun - and Moo is lovely! :-)

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons said...

and now moo gets to sit atop the roof instead of just on a boring plain shelf =) Way cooler. You just gave hid mad street cred there darlin'! <3

That is such a fantastic idea! I never would have thought of using a dollhouse as an organizer - brilliant!

Robyn said...

that is such a great idea-love it-but surely quite more pricy than shelves??

Katherine said...

Yay! I'm so glad you're back and posting. You are, ultimately, the inspiration for my blog!
Also, I love the dollhouse. I just moved at the end of December and am in desperate need of some shelving for my stuff. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to go with the cheapest Ikea thing I can find!

this is fantastic! i want a doll house since forever, oh well, maybe one day :)

Katie said...

That's pretty brilliant! Does Moo have his own room? :)

Liesha said...

dear Katie.. I love love love your doll house... what I'm curious is that, how do you keep all of your little cuties clean all the time? becase I like to be surrounded by little things that are so cute buat always fail to keep them away from dusk :( do you clean them everyday? just wondering...

hanny arianty gultom said...

Ohhh my God!.. You are way too creativeee.. very original.. and i love it.. ^^

Suburban Hypocrite said...

Love the idea! I made my own dollhouse out of cardboard when I was a kid, though, and I doubt my craftsmanship would hold up under any real weight.

Julie Rose said...

Absolutely adorable! Moo seems thrilled. And I love that you can now refer to things by what room they are in! "Oh, the bowl of pom-poms is taking up most of the living room..."

mary @ figwittage said...

Karin said...

Such a brilliant idea!! I might just copy you some day! :)

La Parapet said...

There is no such words in English (what the hell - in whole world!!!) to describe your phenomenon :-))) I adore you ! Let me say some in my way: "jesteś cudowna, bombastyczna, cukierkowa i kolorowa - cieszę się, że jesteś, bez takich ludzi świat byłby nudny" !!!! Keep going !

Yoanda Pragita said...

nene said...

Side by side, which one is the 'doll'. I know that might have sounded 'sexist' but my intention was that you are so cute.
Love the joy and smiles you bring.

Shari said...

katieleigh said...

kristimontague said...

I never thought of that! That's a good way to recycle a dollhouse that a little girl has grown out of! That way she can keep it!

The Shopping Sherpa said...

I have three questions:

1. Can you stop at one?
2. How long before you give in and start furnishing it?
3: Does this help entice you? http://www.flickr.com/groups/modern_miniatures/
