Tiny tweaks...haunted dollhouse living room

I'm not done with the exterior of my haunted dollhouse, but when Chris came home with a few pieces of dollhouse furniture from a recent estate sale, I couldn't help but get started on the interior.
A marble becomes a crystal ball, a tiny Ouija board and spell book sits on the living room couch.   
A family portrait hangs above the couch.  Everything is covered in dust (thanks to a bit of white flour).
The fireplace is filled with miniature pumpkins, an owl, black clock and poisons jug. The miniature bunting is available in the scrapping section of Michaels. 
The bookshelf is filled with a few miniature skeletons, an owl, and a pumpkin. 
It's coming together Boo-ti-fully!!

PS.  It's nearly the weekend! Go have fun!

Aww, that's cute. Cute and creepy, the way I like it. You think I can shrink myself down and live in there for a while?

Miniatures are so addicting. It's been so long since I did anything like this. It's so easy to tell how much fun you're having!

It's....dare I say, spooktacular!

Your living room is soooo spooky. Love the flour trick. That couch is made for a haunted house. No offense to anyone who is currently sitting on a similar one :)

Lynne said...

Some people knit, some garden, some read, some sew, some create with miniatures . . . seasonally and then there is you . . . and you do most all of these. Amazing you are!

Hey Kimmy! Stop on by. I just posted about using vinegar and salt to help weed. It was an experiment that turned out well!

Way cute girlfriend. You just make me wish we were neighbors cuz we'd spend all our time playing.....I know that for sure. I just know that if you and I played together we'd lose track of all time and space and just create and create like maniacs.

Love ya'
Meri

Say hi to the girls and hubby for me.

Love it all (especially the marble crystal ball!) I am mostly impressed that you need fake dust! (Mine occurs naturally, I'm afraid.)
