Doll House Challenges

I’m in a dollhouse rut. I had a vision and it didn’t quite come out the way I wanted nor did I finish several things I wanted to and were coming down to the deadline… I thought I would share with you what I have accomplished even if its not much more than what I […]

Little Furniture
