The purse I started yesterday (please see post below) is done ~ and it's so So SO cute!!!
and in the the bedroom (I made all the purses [neutral crocheted bag on the shelf, lunch pail with black flower at the bottom of the shelf, the Hello Kitty purse and the "straw" knitted purse with embroidered flowers], the top hat [paper mache'] and the mattress and bedding in this room)... the floor of this room is made from popsicle sticks that I glued down, sanded the heck out of, whitewashed with watered down acrylic white paint and then painted with a satin clear gloss... the shelf is made from scraps of wood and bits of miniature molding around the top and bottom - also whitewashed. The victorian looking picture frames hanging on the wall are from the local scrapbook store - I just bought stickers from Belle & Boo [www.belleandboo.blogspot.com] and am going to hang them using these frames! They're going to be adorable!!! <3
and I'm trying to make the purse on the front cover - it's SO cute! But instead of making it large for me, I'm making a small version - with a few alterations - for my dollhouse doll <3
Here's my progress so far...

I'm sick with a cold/sore throat/cough virus, as is my 10 year old and my dad :( ...
and I'm just not feeling like working on my dolls at the moment - but, I did learn how to knit socks this week!!! They fit my dolls - and they're my first attempt, so I'm really, really proud of them... I included a penny so you could see how small (and thus even cuter) they are <3
