Come Shopping with Us: The Hardware Store

A Trip to the Hardware Store

Kensee and Bruni are off to the hardware store in hopes of finding some great accessories for upcoming interior design jobs!

During my last few trips to the hardware store for my basics like spray paint and glue pens, I decided to sleuth a little more than normal and document it for you! There are so many normal household items at the hardware store that can be used for miniature items. There’s more than meets the eye at your local hardware store;ย I hope you too find some surprises here!

DIY: Glassware for Dolls

DIY Glassware for Dolls

As you know, one of our goals is for our dolls and dioramas to have the same beautiful items we have in our homes. Glassware is a tricky one since it can’t easily be created or painted. I do plan to delve into resin experiments this summer, but who knows how that will go! In the meantime, I’ve created some decorative household items using items we should all be able to find. Read on for lots of fun ideas! Continue reading “DIY: Glassware for Dolls”

DIY: Mix & Match Diorama Walls

Diorama Walls

Jasmine is our girly girl and she’s loving her new floral wallpaper and cup of tea.

For a while now, I thought how could I create a room set up where I could swap out the “wallpaper?” I really needed to give it the head space it deserved because I knew it could be extremely useful for many in the doll community. What I’ve come up with is a way to create walls that you can interchange with different papers for endless different looks and also deconstruct and store flat.

Bruni visiting grandma Marjorie to chat about antiquing and thrifting.

I think everyone loves a good Doll Thrift Haul! I honestly could watch them for hours on YouTube while doing crafts or doing chores around the house. Of course, I am always looking for great deals on dolls and their accessories, but I also always have my eye out for items that can be re-purposed for doll dioramas. It’s really amazing how many miniature items are out there, you just have to keep your eyes open wide!
