I got a dollhouse kit for my dd for Christmas I took me about a month to finish the building and another to find the right wallpaper. I could find any that I could afford so I bought scrapbooking paper. The bed was a kit I got from eBay. The bed wouldn't fit in the bedroom with the canopy that it was supposed to have so I cut it off!  A dear friend of mine gives me all of  her fabric scraps because she loves to see what I do with them, that is where all the fabric I made the quilt and pillows out of came from. Next I'm thinking of dressing the dolls. Patterns are hard to find though. Maybe I'll just wing it. This was a lot of fun. I can't wait to furnish the rest of the house slowly but surely!
Just thought I'd share the cuteness! My dd picked out the color scheme for everything. Pretty good for a 6 year old I thought.

You are my sweetest downfall. I loved you first, I loved you first. Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth.

Well scrapbook stores are everywhere but miniature wall paper is hard to find in a small town LOL, and who doesn't have some wallpaper paste laying around.

How cute! I love all the patterns and colors you used. I've been building a dollhouse for the past 6 years and I'm not even half finished. LOL You're right. The supplies are really expensive. The scrapbook paper is a nice idea!
