Oak Bay Farmhouse Bathroom






After being totally inspired by so many of the wonderful dollhouse photos on the miniature blogs, I became motivated to spend some time in my houses, up until 2:30 the other night moving things around. Of course the next day I realized the two mini girls would probably rather be in the other house, this will go on for a while I think because I'm having so much fun. It was about twenty years ago John and I built the two houses. John did more of the building, I did the all the interiors and decorating. Both of my houses represent the late 1800's early 1900's, my grandparent's era, so it has always interested me. This house is called The Oak Bay. I have never put photos of my dollhouses up on my web site so I thought I would do it here on my blog. I made the bathroom set of porcelain, the bottles I turned on the lathe, two of the other containers and vases are glass and the other talc and other fragrance boxes I made using computer graphics. The mother has just recently spent time washing the linens and hung them over the tub to dry. If you click on the images they will open up larger.
