Making miniatures for Bedroom in Rose Cottage

Hello everyone,

Hope your week has been great so far. Finally we had a little storm today. I don't mind a storm now and then especially when I know that everyone is home safe and sound. Halloween is coming up fast. This year I won't be making any Spooky miniatures scenes. Hopefully next year I would be able to work on a proper dolls house project in that area.

Today I will be sharing with you the last room to complete the house Rose Cottage. I have to admit I loved every minute of it. I loved it even more because it didn't cost me anything. All the pieces of furniture and accessories were pieces that I had collected through the years that I didn't have any use for. If I needed some sort of accessories then I made them myself. 

The Bed room in Rose Cottage
So just like the kitchen the bedroom had a fire place which came with the house. It was stuck tight and so not to spoil the paper I left it there. 

I tried out some of the furniture pieces to see what fits. It is not how I would have decorated it but when space is limited I guess you have to work with what you have.

Adding furniture pieces
I was pleased that I could fit in most of what I wanted so then I started working on the accessories. I was so surprised to find so many accessories to fit in the room.

The little baby fitted in well in the little cradle.

I have hand crocheted a small dollie to put under the oil lamp. I am really happy with it.

I had a go at making some toiletries to put on the chest of drawers. Sometimes you don't even realize that some pieces that you would throw away would actually be just perfect for miniatures. As hubby is going through the electricity system of the new premises, I found plenty of these  on the floor. I was wondering if it could fit my purpose.

I am sure you have came across these and I am sure that most of you have chucked them in the bin. Well here is a good use for them in the miniature world. I have made some nice lovely bottles.

All you have to do is cut them,  paint the inside, fill them up with matching tissue paper, Seal the bottom, add a small bead at the top and add labels. Voila don't you think they fit the part? They look just right.

I wanted a pair of slippers for the room so I went for my first pair of pink, fluffy slippers for the Mrs. They turned out good.

 Then I tried out my hand for the baby's slippers. Patience is a blessing! For my first pair of baby slippers they are just perfect. I am so proud of myself with these minis.

My Little Leah just loves this dolls house and every time I add something, she is the first to see it. I showed her the little slippers that I made and she drew my attention that daddy didn't have a pair. She begged me to make a pair for him. I guess I went back to my work surface and made a pair for daddy.

She was thrilled when she saw them. Finally I had to do the bedding for the bed. I went for a darker shade with a floral pattern. I liked the color combination. And so I had finished off also the bed with a little cushion.

I was really pleased how the room took shape. So here are some pictures of the bedroom.

And so this is all for today. I will be adding a few more pieces but the house is pretty much done. I will be sharing with you the complete house during this weekend. I hope you liked what I have done in this bedroom. Keep tuned for the next updated and the closing of Rose Cottage.

Take Care and see you soon.
