Small houses, and a big one

I did made a lot of these small houses back in 2004 and earlier too I think. I sold some, gave away some and kept quite a lot ;)
This is a house that's in the middle of a great renovation ;) I thought of making a little doll that was working on the wallpaper, but I never got started on that..

And another one =) I made some furniture of a clay based on salt and painted them. I'm not that found of them.. tried to make them look like Lundby furniture, but I didn't do so well... (and not that many either)

And a third house =) Don't know how I thought I could do the wallpaper or painting after I assemble the house... Well, we will see if this ever get finished ;)

And, after all these small houses I brought home my "big" house, in 1:12 scale =) I bought this 2004-2005 I think. But I had such a hard time decide what to do with it, so I just stopped and left it undone. But now I felt like trying to make something out of it.
I'm thinking of  giving the façade a makeover, but I don't know how, yet... wood? or bricks? or plastering?

I started renovated the upper floor to be a nursery and a children's room. 
I think I will save the pink wallpaper in the nursery  =) and I might do a children's room at the right. I Don't known if I will save the blue wallpaper or not. I LOVE baby dolls, I might just fill the whole house with babies ;) And I love animals too.. The house most have at least 2 dogs and some cats and maybe the guinea pig I bought from Anna and maybe some birds =) 

 
At the middle floor I'm thinking of a bedroom and a bathroom.
Downstairs I think I will have a living room/ dining room. I started painting the floor, but didn't like it, so I stopped ;) I think I will make a wooden floor from the sticks from popsicles or other wooden sticks I have bought on Biltema (a great swedish store) =) and to the right I want a kitchen, maybe with tiles and a light green wallpaper (I love lime green)

This will be so much fun doing this house, but a lot of work too, and I don't have any deadline, so we never know if I ever get finished ;) It took me 8-9 years to get an idea how I want it, and it might take as many years to complete it, and if it takes too long I might change my mind about things and having to do it all over again... ;)

  1. Hi Hannah, you tiny houses are really cute and the big 1:12 house has a lot of potential and many possibilities. Have fun with it and take your time to investigate all possible ways of decoration, inside and outside.

    1. Thank you! I will really try to have nothing but fun, and don't rush the big house, but I'm no good at rushing so I bet it will take sometime =)

    1. I always want lots of projects, I get bored so easy, but now I can switch as I please and have fun all the time ;)

      By the way I tryed comment on your blog, but I don't have google + and I dont think I could comment then, I tried but couldn't see what I wrote later when I checked...
      I wrote: I love snails too. I saw lots! I mean like 30 or something during a walk around the block this weekend, apparently we moved to a snail block ;) (haven't lived here on the spring before) They are very big and have a big house on the back.
      And I just want to ask, can't I comment on your blog as usual now? do I have to have google+? I dont have that, but maybe I get it now when I comment? I have no clue about this! Hannah =)

  5. I think a dollhouse is a toy so it isn't necessary to finish, it's to play, to change things,...

    1. My daughter agrees, she thinks its a toy, for her, to play with the doors ;) (she's just 1,5 year so she is too small for dollhouses, but she will get one of mine one day) =) Maybe you are right, I might never finish, but I hope I get it decorated and finish the floors and walls, then I can keep changing the stuff inside forever =)

  6. Ett sådant hus som det stora gula har jag varit nära att köpa. Det är jättefint. Det kan du ha jättekul med. Tror nog de flesta skulle vilja ha det.

    Skall bli kul att se minihuset när du pysslat klart.

    1. Det är ett fint hus det stora, ganska många rum med, ibland tycker jag dockskåpen har för få rum, men detta är ganska lagom =)

  7. All the small houses, it must have been something of a patience work.
    Exciting with your new project, I also have such a house, which I partially decorated. I have some thoughts about putting new windows and doors in, then do something about the facade. Once upon a time.
    Good luck whit your haouse, now I can get some inspiration from you.

    1. I thought of a new door and new windows for a second, then I realized it would be too hard for me to change that. I will start with the walls and floors, it seams easy enough =)

  8. The tiny house is very nice and the big one is fabulous. I'm curious to see it decorated.
    Bye, Faby
