Grandmere and Little Red


Little Red's grandmere is a very chic old lady for living so long in a secluded cottage in the woods. She is very careful to get a good dye job each week so her roots don't show. We really hope that Little Red and that Woodcutter make short work of bad Wolfie before he does any damage to her precious wallpaper - grandmere is not as limber these days as she once was!

Oh, look, Little Red is changing behind the screen. Really, Little Red, you are so vain. What? The woodcutter has an apprentice? And all that chopping has made him extremely manly? Well, in that case he probably merits an extra squirt or two of your Chanel no. 5. But don't worry. What boy doesn't like a girl with a basket?

**You should really check out this adorable re-telling of Little Red, over on Rubyellen's blog, Cakies. I was laughing so hard at the pictures of her little wolfie!!
**And, thank you Bethany, for your kind bestowal of a brilliante blog award!! Can I give it back to you, and Rubyellen?

Did you do the dollhouse yourself? If so, I can commiserate. It's great planning and buying all the little pieces not so much fun 3am Christmas Day. Right?! Or am I the only procrastinator here? Whatever the case, LOVE the house. The curtains are the cutest! Not to mention the mantle artwork:)

I hope to live like Grandmere someday!! Maybe she and the Woodcutter can get together! And I didn't know Little Red and I had so much in common-- red, Chanel No. 5 and well-built men (I'm talking about my husband!!!). Thanks for making me smile today!! This dollhouse is AWESOME!

To-die-for!! I love these rooms, you guys are too good! Am betwixt and between on the old dollhouse front. Have my childhhod one at Grandma's but it's very plywood...not sure it's worthy of a rehab? But don't like th new new ones? Looking for doll, furniture sources, too, please??

hi annmarie -
these are actually just little art projects, rather than rooms from a real doll house. at our house we have a shelf on a bookcase for our miniature things - and I have found some great little treasures for it on ebay, for good prices! good luck!

Audrey said...

You two are too creative! What fun little houses for little red to romp around in!

jenny gordy said...

AAAAAAAA! I'm so excited about your shop opening! Only one problem: I don't have any kids yet. : (

Daria said...
