Portable Dollhouse

There is a new family in the neighborhood! 

Meet Mr. and Mrs. Podge and their daughters Peg and Paige.


The little family's preppy pink and green abode is finally completed. Floors have been laid and wallpaper has been hung (i.e. EVERYTHING is covered in Mod Podge and scrapbooking paper). 


The Podges, themselves, have gone through quite a transformation

These little peg dolls remind me of the Fisher Price Little People that I played with as a child.


Heather Bailey's fabric line has been utilized yet again - this time as their wardrobe (and, of course, it was decoupaged on as well). Their faces were painted and then sealed with a coat of clear spray paint. 


As you can see, the girls are scoping out their new space. They love the bright color palette, while mom and dad appreciate the vaulted ceilings and oversized doorways


The novelty of sleeping on the floor and eating takeout has been quite an adventure for Peg and Paige, however, Mr. and Mrs. Podge are quite anxious for the delivery of appliances and furniture, which will really help this house to feel like a home.

I'll be sure to let you know when everything "arrives"!

My daughter is a little too small for "peg" people, but you have inspired me to someday make her a dollhouse!

Doris said...

So simple, and yet, so cute and so clever!

Hazel said...

Rachel said...

That is incredible. What a great idea for when my daughter is a little older. Right now, she would eat the little people...
BYW - I am having a Christmas Carnival (http://modernmommyhood.blogspot.com/2008/09/12-weeks-of-christmas-carnival-details.html) and I would love to hear some Christmas crafty ideas from you. You do such a great job!

Tara said...

Absolutely darling! I'm sure your girls will LOVE & enjoy playing with this sweet little family for years to come! Will you be making the furniture yourself, too??

Jennifer said...

Count me in for one when you offer the kit. My daughter is only 5 months right now, but I'm so excited for the dolls and dollhouse phase. We're also adopting an older child from Ethiopia, so paint it your self is a great idea. Our dolls will have a little darker skin tone.

Christy said...

This is so adorable!!!

beki said...
