Doll Houses

Last month Eleanor and I stumbled upon a little store in Edina, MN called Little Enchantments. A wonderful shop full of miniatures and doll houses. Needless to say we spent quite a bit of time in there. Eleanor fell in love with a Princess Anne style doll house which ended up being her Christmas gift.

The lady at Little Enchantments said they only sell kits from Real Good Toys because of the quality craftsmanship. As I was thumbing through the catalog and browsing their web site, I fell in love with the Beachside Bungalow which ended up being my Christmas gift! My mom saw that I pinned the doll house on Pinterest and (sneaky lady) bought it for me for Christmas.

Last weekend we got started on all the painting. Eleanor choose a light yellow for her Victorian style home. I choose a pretty beachy aqua color for mine. We need to get one coat of paint on the entire house, windows, railings and interior before we can glue it together. There is a lot to paint so that's what we'll be working on for the next couple weeks. Stay tuned for our progress.

This is going to be a really fun project for us to work on together. We've already spent a few hours together painting. We've also spent a few hours on Etsy and other sites looking for unique furniture and accessories. 

Since we are stuck inside in the Minnesota ice box I'm glad we have a fun project to work on!!

Have a great day!
