Valentines and CNY at the Dollhouse...

Valentines and Chinese New Year party festivities are happening in my Rich dollhouse.

 I've had a few email inquires on dollhouses lately so I'm going to start sharing "which" type/manufacturer dollhouse I'm featuring because I have so many different types of dollhouses.
Our gentleman friend, is busy mailing a few Valentine cards to his lady friends.

The matron of the house is busy reading Valentines from the comfort of her chair.

A box of chocolates, fresh flowers, heart garland and a Chinese lantern decorate the living room fireplace mantle.

A new friend has arrived and is all decked out in her Valentine party dress.  She joins her friends in the kitchen.  She is busy organizing sweets and Valentines ready to be mailed.

These ladies are quite popular as you can see by the stack of Valentines that have arrived and are sitting in the front hallway.

To make the miniature Valentines, I took a collection of Valentine card images, copied/pasted them in Word and then shrunk them down in size and printed them on cardstock.  
Love comes in ALL sizes!

XOXO

So cute with the little valentines!! And I still love the Nancy Ann girls in there, even though they're a little large in scale. I've got several of them- maybe they'll have to move into one of my houses!

So cute. I would love to have a vintage doll house but I don't need anything else to spend money one right now, so I will just have to enjoy yours.

Oh, the little pink heart garland on the fireplace - and the little valentines - soooo cute. I guess you just look at things differently when you do miniatures. So cute - of course, I LOVE the dollys!

I think shrunken Christmas cards will be coming to a Dept 56 Village near me! No doll houses here but the suburbs and little village dwellings are all over my house!
