My favorite thing

This gift from Crystal was a gift I covet. Thank you Crystal. Anyone else who received it would agree that it was fab.


Waiting is Interminable

Is there anyone else who has not got their Club Little House delivery??? Everything looks so lovely. Patience is a virtue they say but it is hard to wait and wait and wait. Well it sure will be great to get the package. I'm so impressed by what you talented women have created. Softie and I continue to wait and listen for the postal carrier.

I found this little treasure for a dollar. It helped while some time away. I am looking for a doll family. Have people had good experience purchasing on ebay?

Thank you!

I finally opened my box on Sunday, and found so many treasures. What a talented group! I've posted about my loot here, here, and here. Doesn't Saucy's ironing board, and Heather's backpack, and Corrine's message board look perfect in front of the store? And how about Amy's mail and Rosanna's pink bubblegum machine near the door of the diner:

Thank you, all!


Junie Moon’s Club Little House Rug Tutorial

I’ve had some emails asking how I made the Club Little House rug and thought I’d share it with the other CLH members, too. How wonderful that you're enjoying the little rug in your dollhouse.


  • Printable cotton fabric (craft stores or office supply--not the iron-on kind if you're going to embroider as it's too thick then

  • Wool (not crafting) felt from your local fabric store

  • Embroidery floss

  • A copy of the logo saved to your hard drive

Since I had to make multiple rugs and printable fabric isn’t cheap, I wanted to get more than one logo graphic on each sheet of printable fabric. So I copied the logo into a Word document and adjusted to get the size I wanted, then copied that initial design and pasted into the same Word document as many times as would fit on one page. Print—I used my HP color DeskJet printer.

NOTE: Printable fabric isn’t cheap so think about other things you want to print on the fabric page as you’re probably only going to want to print one of the rugs. Maybe make another rug of a different design or a patch for a purse or clothing. I always try to conserve my printable fabric efforts.

After you have your printed product, you need to treat the fabric which is super easy. My package said to rinse the printed fabric under cool water for a bit. Don’t wring it out or anything; instead, let as much water as possible drip off and then iron it dry (being careful not to burn your fabric).

After it was dry, I embroidered the text bits. Then I cut out the rug, leaving some white space around it. I cut out a piece of felt fabric the same size and pinned the two together but you could also baste. I took a pair of scissors and cut around each one of the little scallops on the edge of the logo design—this kept both the rug top and backing the same. I tried using my scallop scissors but the rug design didn’t match the scale of the scallops on the scissors. And, if you closely look at the edge of the logon the right side, you’ll see it is different from the rest of the design.

Now we come to a choice you can make that I wish I’d thought about when doing 24 of these rugs and my eyeballs were threatening to divorce me. I hand-stitched a simple blanket stitch around each rug to bind the two pieces together. If I’d thought about it, I would have used my sewing machine and tried a satin stitch—but I am not sure how that will work with all the little tiny scallop edgings and I just have a basic sewing machine.

And you’re done—that’s it!

Other Rugs You Can Make

Here is a photo of a different rug I made for my dollhouse dining room using the basic same technique as above. However, I printed this design on printable canvas instead of cotton printable fabric because I wanted a semblance of woven texture. I did satin-stitch the edges on this rug.

This slightly out-of-focus picture gives you an idea of the rug texture.

I hope all this helps those of you wanting to make rugs for your dollhouse.

Dollhouse Stained Glass Windows is the name of this book that I bought Saturday at our local "Friends of the Library" book sale. I paid a whopping $.25 for it. I can't wait to play with it. The directions say to use colored pencils to color in the windows. I'm envisioning pink in the girl's bedroom. I love these sales. You never know what you might find.

Ready or Not...

(Although I'm certain the answer is READY!)

It looks like your packages will start going out tomorrow!!!! How exciting is that??!

Pam, Pat, Lorraine and I worked hard all day...but we sure had some great fun! Here are some snapshots to capture the magnitude and madness of it all...

Thanks so much Pam, Pat, and Lorraine for all your help. You made it so much fun and so much easier! As a special thank you, I'll send you the recipe for the cheese lava. ha ha! (If Pam or Lorraine have a good picture of the cheese lava maybe they'll post it with an explanation...)


Is anyone else feeling anxious?

I cannot hardly wait to get my package of littles. I thank you, Amy, for inviting me to join. You are doing the work of a hundred strong men. (Five strong women). I want to see and learn about each submittal. I hope we have some pictures from the members afterwards. You are a great group.


Pirate house

This is my pirate house. I have restarted this project in anticipation of my littles. It has a rope ladder and hammock. The bottom floor has one wall that is plexiglass. My pirate girl likes to see the ocean when she is on land. The ceiling is painted with the constellations. Another thing my pirate likes.


The Impending Treasure Trove

Things are getting spruced up at my dollhouse is readiness for the arrival of Club Little House's new treasure trove. I've made curtains for the little girl's room as well as a matching bed skirt and comforter. Everything has been dusted and polished. The table is cleaned off for the celebratory tea party. Have you done anything new with your dollhouse and would you be willing to share your ideas?


hip hip hooray!

All the littles have arrived!

They are really all so wonderful...I can't wait for you all to see just how wonderful. I'm shooting to get your packages out to you next week. What a celebration it'll be! I love Saucy's idea of a tea party!
