  1. For a long time I wanted a Blythe doll, and in July my boyfriend got me one for my birthday. Then for Christmas he got me 2 more! I think they are so cute, and they fit in with my other hobbies (I'd love to make them a 1/6 scale house or shelf house, and I also love to collect Re-ment and other cutesy Japanese goods). People sell Blythe clothes all over Etsy, but they are so expensive, so I've been teaching myself to sew. I also got a sewing machine for Christmas! Anyway, the dresses on the brown haired doll in both pictures I made by hand from free patterns on the internet. I'm really proud of the striped one b/c it has a collar that looks like a collar and the sleeves aren't wonky like mine usually are. Also, it has bust darts! Yay!
  2. Craft Stick Floor

    From the album Houseworks Shop

    It really is cheap and sexy to make a floor with craft sticks... I think mine looks pretty good for a first try.
  3. The dollhouse and I

    From the album RGt Vermont Farmhouse Jr.

    Just me... chilling with the dollhouse before our 5 hour trip across state to deliver it!
  4. Blythe dolls and doll sewing

    You have 20? That is insane! Which one is your favorite? I would love to have a Bow Wow Trad but they are so expensive. Thanks for the compliments!
  5. Bedroom closeup!

    From the album RGt Vermont Farmhouse Jr.

    Well... though I can't make good or realistic bedding, this turned out to be cute and fun. I like it, at least, and my sister-in-law loved it, and my brother even thought it was cool. I know some people think this house kit is boring, but it definitely had it's plusses. It was easy to build, and is very stury. If you don't feel like adding floors, it has pre-grooved floors (I chose to buy and install my own). It isn't huge, but allows for a decent amount of furniture. Also, the style can be easily adapted to look more like a traditional Main Street America home or a farmhousey stle home. Almost all exterior trim was included (I added some picture frame molding and apex brackets to brighten it up). The porch is cute and a nice size for some chairs or a settee. Also, this kit at Crafts, Etc website is something like 80$ with free shipping!
  6. Bathroom

    From the album RGt Vermont Farmhouse Jr.

    Bathroom furniture came in a lot from Craigslist (An Artply Allison dollhouse, 2 Realife kits, a Chrysnbon folding table kit with chairs, and the bathroom for $20). The walls are aqua with white tile and white backsplash trim in the tub area. The hutch is from Michaels.
  7. Back of the house

    From the album RGt Vermont Farmhouse Jr.

    Isndie the dollhouse... bright, cheerful colors with white trim and ceilings, and different floors.
  8. Michael's $1 hutch

    From the album RGt Vermont Farmhouse Jr.

    This hutch turned out really cute with fushia paint, a white aging wash, and mod patterned scrapbook paper details. Ignore the bowls, the really serve no purpose.
  9. Master bedroom

    From the album RGt Vermont Farmhouse Jr.

    Furniture from Realife and Chrysnbon kit (this Realife kit was kind of warped, but I figure if she's into this stuff when she is older, we can get her a nicer bedrrom set). Homemade curtains, bedding. Hat on wall is from Manor House grab bag decorated with spare lace and ribbon. Picture is catalog cutout in handmade frame. Rug is one that I actually bought 2 of! This flooring almost didn't arrive in time, but it looks so nice in person, and so real. The Realife kit ispainted in a color called French Vanilla which is like a creamy, buttermilk yellow and I added a white aging wash and little handpainted flowers. Also, the handles on the night tables are little beads.
  10. 3rd floor home office

    From the album RGt Vermont Farmhouse Jr.

    Isn't it weird to think how much the home computer will play a role in someone who is born today? I was born in 1980, and went to college in the late 90s and early 2000s and still couldn't do the things with a computer that someone born even after 1985 can do. Well, anyway, Kylie's childhood and education will probably feature computers a great deal. Though I haven't bought a little computer yet, this will be the desk. The desk & hutch are Realife kits, the chair is a Houseowrks kit from HBS. The walls are grassy green and the trim is adhesive srapbooking ribbon. The carpet is the "budget" off-white carpeting from HBS.
  11. Bathroom hutch closeup

    From the album RGt Vermont Farmhouse Jr.

    $1 hutch with white paint over tan with a crackle finish, cool scrapbook paper shelf lining, and thin ribbon trim edging.
  12. Little girls bedroom

    From the album RGt Vermont Farmhouse Jr.

    Scrapbook paper below the chair rail, awful handmade curtains (though, HBS fabric grab-bag was a pretty fun deal, got tons of things meant for this house, it was like destiny!) and a painted Michael's hutch. Bed (Daisy House kit) and HOM nightstand kit are in the mail!
  13. 2nd floor hallway

    From the album RGt Vermont Farmhouse Jr.

    Hardwood floors, lace curtain, and HOM kit painted baby pink and aged Shabby Chic style. Also, almost all of the doors in this house have chrystal door knobs! The picture is a catalog cutout in a "matte" made from a paint chip from Loews in a homemade frame.
  14. Kitchen picture

    From the album RGt Vermont Farmhouse Jr.

    Just a cheery little picture cut from an Allposters.com catalog in a Chrysnbon frame!
  15. Kitchen

    From the album RGt Vermont Farmhouse Jr.

    Originally, I had a Chrsynbon set in here and then fell on top of it (oops!). Currently, the chairs are HOM and the window treatment is simply glued on lace. I love the yellow/black/white combo. I just ordered an HOM round table kit to go with the chairs.
  16. Living room

    From the album RGt Vermont Farmhouse Jr.

    Living room furniture made from Realife and HOM kits, nice "hardwood" floors & "marble" entryway (individual tiles from HBS), damask pattern scrap book paper underneath the chair rail, and poorly homemade curtains and pillows!
  17. Front of house

    From the album RGt Vermont Farmhouse Jr.

    The entire front... pistashio green and several shades of purple... I think it's girly without being overbearing.
  18. Porch detail

    From the album RGt Vermont Farmhouse Jr.

    The address is my brother and sister-in-law's street address... I had to buy some hanging plants, if I had a porch in real life I'd hang plants all over it!
  19. Colors

    From the album Emerson Row!

    I like the hunter green and gold a lot, but it kind of looks a little like school colors or some football team or something. Tentatively, I'd like siding on the bays in light yellow with light green window frames with gold hoods and hunter sills. I'd like to get a fishscale plastic sheet for the eaves and paint it light green and then get some different trim and paint it in the deeper colors. I love brick, so I was thinking of trying to make egg carton bricks (luckilly, bf eats a ton of eggs and I've been saving cartons).
  20. Arsty bedroom picture

    From the album Emerson Row!

    Just the bedroom again, but in a cooler picture!
  21. Side angle

    From the album Emerson Row!

    I still have to brick and paperclay the other side wall, but I'm still working on tapewire on that side. The bay rooves are "copper" and patina'd (is that a word? I think not!) Not too shabby for an old, warped, splintery kit... I recieved a huge order or HBS supplies (ceilings, lamps, trim, etc) so I have ALOT to do... too bad friends are taking over the living room shouting at the tv for the Steelers game...
  22. Front currently

    From the album Emerson Row!

    Some trim added... now if only I could get those darn stairs to fit!
  23. Foundation finished

    From the album Emerson Row!

    The paperlcay foundation with paint washes
  24. Bedroom

    From the album Emerson Row!

    On the other side of 2nd floor wall, with a fake door bc my straight line cutting is really that bad that I decided to fudge it with a rectangle shape and some molding.
  25. Upstairs officey/ loungey area

    From the album Emerson Row!

    Thiis is on the 2nd full floor, which is now divided by a poorly cut wall made by me. I love this scrapbook paper and would love it as a dress or something.
