New Curtains

Hello, Dear Ones. First of all, I want to thank Susan from Ash Tree Cottage for featuring my little minis on her Ash Tree Cottage Dollhouse blog. That fact kept a smile on my most gorgeous face for quite a few days! So since we're in the 'mini mode' I thought I'd share some more mini-ness with you.

 I decided it was time to make some curtains for the bedroom window in the now 'get away mini house' to soften it up a little bit.
 I took some white fabric and ironed down a hem all around. Then with my most talented dainty fingers I hand stitched a running stitch at four places, vertically, evenly spaced, across my piece. Then I pulled up the threads and tied a knot up at the top so now I had a little balloon valance. I used a little wooden stick and cut it to size and hot glued my valance down to it. Then I took some tiny lace and glued it to the top of the valance to make it a little bit pretty!
 Kinda cute, don't you think?
Me and my plates! I had made some Mary Englebreit plates and thought they would be perfect for the bedroom, so I poked them up on the wall. Really they're poked up with a little bit of glue!
Hope you like my tiny little balloon valance.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Good Vibrations

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears
And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair
I hear the sound of a gentle word
On the wind that lifts her perfume through the air
I'm pickin' up good vibrations
She's giving me excitations
I'm pickin' up good vibrations (Oom bop, bop, good vibrations)
She's giving me excitations(Oom bop, bop, excitations)
Good good good good vibrations (Oom bop, bop)
She's giving me excitations(Oom bop, bop, excitations)
Good good good good vibrations (Oom bop, bop)
She's giving me excitations (Oom bop, bop, excitations)
Close my eyes
She's somehow closer now
Softly smile, I know she must be kind
When I look in her eyes
She goes with me to a blossom world
I'm pickin' up good vibrations
She's giving me excitations
I'm pickin' up good vibrations (Oom bop, bop, good vibrations)
She's giving me excitations (Oom bop, bop, excitations)
Good good good good vibrations (Oom bop, bop)
She's giving me excitations (Oom bop, bop, excitations)
Good good good good vibrations (Oom bop, bop)
She's giving me excitations (Oom bop, bop, excitations)
(Ah)
(Ah my my what elation)
I don't know where but she sends me there
(Ah my, my, what a sensation)
(Ah my, my, what elations)
(Ah my, my, what)
Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations
A happenin' with her
Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations
A happenin' with her
Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations
A happenin'
Ah
Good good good good vibrations (Oom bop, bop, I'm pickin' up good vibrations)
She's giving me excitations (Oom bop, bop, excitations)
Good good good good vibrations (Oom bop, bop)
She's na, na
Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na
Do, do, do, do, do,
Do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do,
Do, do, do

  10. Love the dollhouse. You are so talented to sew up those pretty little mini curtains. Beautiful.

    I had a dollhouse when I was little...but then my sister, who was 3 yrs younger than me, painted the appliances in the kitchen and some of the furniture with BRIGHT red nail polish. She was supposed to be napping, while I was at school. I don't know what became of the dollhouse after that. I didn't want to play with it anymore, I remember saying THAT'S NOT MY COLOR!! LOL!!
