This is so neat "lovesclutter" I love it  Shocked  Your doing a great job!! On your tiny bottle & tiny cake, some old parts from sprays bottle the top part take it apart & glue it together how you want it. The bottle I'm not to sure, I sure there is something that you use everyday that you could use as tiny bottle, maybe a eye dropper & somehow cut off the ends & use class beads for the lid. Also old earings they might work!!. For the keys maybe some charms  & the bird cage use a small card board for bottom or a earing & wire bent up & form the cage lots of glue & a glass bead on top & have a wire or something to hang it by. Hope that helps. Cant't wait to see it all done!! You are doing a great job on it! Keep up the Awesome work!!!

Sharalee, an eyedropper, I think I have that. You are so clever. I am using all stash, and thought today, I have a hanger perfect for hanging a bird cage. Have some more ideas. Crafting is mostly on weekends.  Thanks.

I love it!  Where did you ever find Tim Burton playing cards?  Great job.. you might find the cake and tiny bottle in doll house things at Hobby Lobby, or in Jewerly findings.

I have bought little glass bottles at Michaels, Hobby Lobby and Fire Mountain Gems (http://www.firemountaingems.com/details.asp?pn=H202479PK).  People often make them into necklaces and earrings.  These might be a little too small for "Poppet scale".

I have seen a lot of people selling cakes on etsy.  There was one shop that sold things in dollhouse scale, Barbie scale, and American Girl scale.  I think I even saw "Eat Me" cookies out there once.  Of course, I didn't save those links.

I found this birdcage tutorial a while ago -- I think someone posted it somewhere on Craftster.  I thought it was really cute.  http://www.howjoyful.com/2011/11/birdcage-ornament-tutorial/.  I don't know how you feel about soldering, but you might be able to fake it with some sort of epoxy-type glue if you don't have the tools (or connections).

Thanks Sharalee. The scale of an ornament is perfect. While I don't have the materials doesn't mean I cannot use that for inspiration. I've bookmarked it. The simple construction is very helpful.

Linda P, my ex got those cards at the local museum of the appalaccia's here in Knoxville. We lost the 8 of spades, so it wasn't a full deck anyway and I got immense pleasure in putting hot glue on them. LOL

My goal with this house is to only use stuff I have on hand. While I do love my clutter, I need to use it up, give it away or ship it out.

I absolutely love the use of the cards for the walls.  Are you trying for an "Alice in Wonderland" feel with a Tim Burton twist? 

And I also know what hot glue feels like on your foot.  I feel your pain.  FYI, inner thigh (I often work in shorts) and underside of your upper arm hurt really bad too.  I'm bit of a clutz.

Yes bluecherry, a mixture of Tim Burton and Disney. Yes, I'm mixed up, so we are liable to see a lot of crazy stuff..

Hot glue, yes, full protective gear this weekend. Can't imagine the inner thigh. Ouch!

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

While the scale is a little small, I am bookmarking that link for some of the other rooms. Thank you. I don't work on the house during the week, but I do get inspired on the weekends. LOL Getting old I guess. I have 2 crafalongs, and I have been ignoring the gibbous one.  I keep a lot of the whimsy's I have acquired and bits and bobs to consider for accents to the rabbit hole.

we need more pics  Cheesy I'm hoping to grab the new dolly condo today, sadly not as flash on the one I pinned, but it should still be awesome  Cheesy just a kit set wardrobe  Wink but with a bit of paint, and a lot of Madi's stuff, should look awesome!
