A teeny dollhouse for the Farmhouse

This has been a crazy year for me with little time for mini making.
However, I was so inspired by a picture of an antique dollhouse I saw on the internet I just had to make time to do some serious mini making.
The Farmhouse girls bedroom needed a dollhouse.

It was fiddly folks! 
But then most mini making projects are fiddly to say the least!

Fiddly but satisfying.
Built mostly from cardboard.
That roof took three attempts to get right.

A peek inside!

I've painted some tiny metal furniture I had. 
It's a little over sized for the house but I remember my first dollhouse when I was a little girl had over sized furniture.

And I made a teeny tiny version of the dollhouse to go in there.
So the dollhouse dollhouse has a dollhouse! 

So you can see how small it is! And there's the teeny, tiny dollhouse dollhouse dollhouse too.

This is the actual 19th century Swedish antique dollhouse that inspired me so much. 
You can see it here.

I could sit here playing with my little house all day.
but there are more things waiting to be made...

Thank you all for the comments you leave. They really make my day!!
