I thought I would post several pictures of my current project, Tumbleweed House. I used the dollhouse kit Lisa's Country Cottage by Houseworks. I completed the build back in March during Spring Break, but since I am a teacher, the little cottage sat empty until May.
When I started decorating the inside, I envisioned a shabby chic style interior, complete with lots of distressed white furniture and pictures of Paris. It seemed like every time I tried to add a shabby detail, something would happen and the shabbiness was lost. I was getting no where fast. So I finally "listened" to my cottage and began to embrace the whole Americana/Country Farm style. The funny thing is that my real house is decorated in a country farm style! In fact, many of the things that you see in the Tumbleweed House have a real life counterpart in my home.

So, that is my Tumbleweed House. It is far from complete and in a state of change almost daily. Tomorrow, I will post pictures of the front porch, which I am painting in just a matter of minutes.
