So, after spending some time today photographing and listing the kid's new dollhouse, I decided I just had to share all the extra pictures (that wouldn't fit on the listings) with you folks. Sort of a brag moment I guess, but since I had nothing to do with this custom order, except talk to the customer and encourage the artists, I think perhaps it would be more accurately described as a 'proud big sister' moment...
Check out this new darling, natural, kids' play set!
Isn't it beautiful?? I'm SO happy with the way it turned out and proud of the kids who built it! :) Click HERE to go to our shop listing for it. Stephen (18) made the dollhouse to look like the Ingalls cabin in the TV show.
Theresa (16) knit the family people to replicate the actors/actresses in the show (down to the correct hair styles and colored outfits!).
Complete with removable bonnets for the girls.
And Michael (14) made most of the furniture by himself.
Those are three very talented young artisan siblings of mine!
I love how it's a family effort to turn out one of these, what are sure to be, heirloom sets!
This one was a custom order and is already sold, but everybody is quite eager to make another, few, hopefully!
I really enjoy setting up all the people and furniture for the photo shoots. Everything is real, natural wood and wool--feels so good in your hands!
The kids seem so happy and proud when they're creating and being productive with their hands...
and the younger kids are so unhappy when I have to ship away these stellar toys! :(
Oh well... at least Christmas is coming! As though I have to keep reminding them of that! ;) Meanwhile, our back pasture has been continuing to receive some good waterings followed by showy color displays falling down from the sky and landing in the heart of the pasture.
Mmm, such a relaxing view to catch out the back door...
That's all for now! Check back later for Annie's Tasty Tues! (May have to be another Tasty Wed. if the video doesn't upload fast enough for a Tue... :)
God's blessings friend!
The proud big sister, :)
Unreal! What a wonderful cooperative effort. The results are beautiful.ReplyDelete
That rainbow is the best!
You are blessed and blessing others with your artistic reports and quality projects.
Mary, that set is just amazing...every Saturday we watch an episode of Little House with the kids, so I just had to show your listing to my husband when he came home from work. He thought it was adorable, and so do I--it's such a charming and wonderful work of art. I would have gone crazy to have that when I was a girl--actually, I think I would still like to play with it. :)ReplyDelete
You and your siblings are gifted artisans and you deserve to brag a little bit. :)
It's a "pipe dream" of mine to build my own replica of The Little House on the Prairie house, but in real size!
Maybe I can use your model as a plan! LOL
What clever kids, I'm impressed.
I love this toy set! I used to read the Little House books when I was younger and I still enjoy going back and reading them now even though I'm almost 23. Thank you for sharing your talents!ReplyDelete
Wow!!! love the detail ;)ReplyDelete
They are fantastic!! Thank you for sharing and inspiring others with your amazing family. Miss you guys!ReplyDelete
What talent! That is quite the most exquisite house I have ever seen. Just loved the little family too, and the oven door that seems to open!ReplyDelete
That set is completely adorable! I love it.ReplyDelete
The Little HOuse play set is adorable! I know my girls would love to have that for Christmas!! Every time I go to your Etsy shop, I'm amazed at the beautiful workmanship there!ReplyDelete
