Last day of National Dollhouse Miniature Month-Raggedy of course

Thought I’d end the month with a couple of my favorites.   Raggedy Ann and Andy were mounted with a quarter scale Empty display box.  The boxes are both wired with light.   

How I got them.  

Raggedy Ann all finished.

Raggedy Andy completed.

I hope you have enjoyed the month as much as I have.  Happy Halloween!!!!

National dollhouse miniature month—Santa

I make a lot of miniatures  but seldom do I make dolls.  One of my favorite is Santa.  

Santa is 1/12 scale.  The sleigh is a Christmas ornament.

National dollhouse miniature month - swaps

How do you find all the stuff to furnish a mini scene???

Of course you can buy all the stuff you need to furnish a mini house but as you have probably figured out — I have a lot of miniature houses.  I found a better way.  There are many swaps groups that you can join in many scales.  Themes vary from group to group.   You make a number of items; send to swap master and you get that number back. 

Here’s just a few of the swaps I made



Dressers and mirrors 

Quarter scale beds

Single view

Rugs and clock 


Dog food and bones 

Wall shelves

Filled suitcase spaghetti with Parmesan cheese 


I have fun making swaps and receiving swaps.

National dollhouse miniature month-yet another obsession Raggedy anns

You know I love antique shops and holiday stuff BUT I really REALLY love anything Raggedy Ann or Andy. 

Here’s my little Raggedy decorating store

Raggedy Ann is a little over 103 years old.  Still young to me.
