What's in the box?

Unfortunately this is not mine, even though my children wish it was. I borrowed it to take some photographs for reference and ideas and thought I would share. It was made for my friend Dianne who made the nine patch quilt I have previously posted about.

Just a peek....




Fully open....
Some close ups...


And Colly's four year old hand showing how small the items are. The photos on the wall of actual family photographs. The stockings and presents are named and if you look on the right wall there are some little bolts of fabric, scissors and a pincushion.


My children have loved looking at this - maybe we can start work on our own this Christmas.

This was a treasure box. I can imagine the kids love it.

That is so cute. I bet that would be a lot of work to make - but such a treasure to have.

What an adorable little box. Where did they get the tiny furniture? I'd love to make one.

Precious! I have a link to the most gorgeous, detailed dollhouse on the web in my opinion, Fayzers Place. I love mini's.

Oh my goodness, that is so adorable! I've always wanted to make / have a dollhouse, but never actually got around to it. This is such a fabulous gift.
