Our New Cottage Doll house Tenants....

It's Rednesday already??? 
Hosted by
Boy time flies.
This has been yet another hard week for us here....
But still wanted to post a little something, it keeps me sane.
Mr. Darling is healing from his surgery,
yet the week started with two sick kids..... 
and our dear friends funeral was today. 
It has been an emotional roller coaster to say the least.....

As many of you know we have a cottage doll house 
which Miss Freckles spends much of her time playing with.
I have to say it was one of the best gifts I could have ever made her....
It has been a few years now since I built it for her...
and she still plays with it, for hours at a time.
We decided though, it was time for a wee make over...
I will share with you the changes soon...It is still a work in progress.
With a new makeover the cottage house needed new tenants
. They are waiting patiently to move in to their new digs.
Meet The Hopscotch family....aren't they adorable?
Their outfits are stinkin' cute too...all the cheery colors...especially the red.

They are also getting new furniture!
I made this sweet couch for the family room...
And soon will have a cozy Lil chair to match. 
This sweet red couch was a project we got from 
Thanks Elizabeth...we love it!
It is just perfect for this new family and their new cottage home. 
Be sure to visit often, so you will see our little Summer project.
Thanks for stopping in!
Happy Rednesday!


  1. That is just sooooo adorable Mica! Lucky Freckles to have such a cute family to live in her doll house and such a sweet sofa! You are such a great mum!

  2. The new little family waiting to move into the doll house is just adorable!!
    And what a sweet little sofa for them to relax on!
    I can't wait to see what it looks like when it is all finished....being a doll house owner myself!!

  3. I could see my daughter playing with this also for hours. She can spend so much time with her Polly Pockets.

  4. Mica~I'll certainly be praying for your family again this week. I do hope your hubbys recovery is going well.

    The little sofa is adorable as well as the bunny family. Can't wait to see what other fun projects you work on over the summer.

    God Bless You and Your Family,
    The Tattered Tassel

  5. Dear Mica, you have soo much on your plate right now. I am sorry and do know I will be holding you up in prayer today xoxox Clarice

  6. very nice, can't wait to see the rest of the doll house make over.

  7. The little red couch is so cute. I wish I had room in my dollhouse for something like that. Love the bunnies!

  8. Love this little family and their little red couch!! With the help of my brother-in-law, I made a beautiful doll house for MY daughter too, but it's a good-sized one, because we made ours for Barbie! To this day, my daughter STILL LOVES her doll house! One of these days maybe I'll post it... We'll see! Happy Rednesday to you! ~tina

  9. I love miniatures. I am inspired to make some furniture now too!

    Susan and Bentley

  10. Oh my goodness, the Hopscotch Family is just precious! I bet you made those clothes for them, didn't you? The little sofa you made is so sweet, and I can't wait to see the renovations to the little cottage!
    Happy REDnesday!

  11. Wishing your husband a speedy recovery and your kiddies soon feel better too!

    Oh! The Hopscotch Family is the cutest and how they will love their new couch! :)

    Happy Rednesday,

  12. Hi Mica! Yes, the pattern in at the website Crochet Soiree. You go to Projects from the top of webpage, to "view challenges", and there you'll see "May Crochet-Along". That's it! You may be asked to register, but if I remember right, it was very quick and simple to do!.. because believe me, I DON'T like registering for every little thing! THIS, however is well worth it, I think! ~tina (OH! and I am seriously considering homeschooling for next year. Do you know anyone from NY State, whom I might be able to ask/talk to about it?)

  13. Oh, I just love that little family! My daughter used to have some of those. You did a great job with the sofa!
