Cleaning with a bit of renovation

 Both of these projects are favorites because of all the swap items that were made by online friends. Both got a good cleaning to come out for summer display. The back porch lawn got a complete redo. When I first extended the lawn all I had was scraps of AstroTurf from a friend. I made it work but I wasn't really happy with it. As I was cleaning the scene today I remembered that I had leftover model railroad grass. And so it began. I am much happier and, I am guessing, so are Grandma, Grandpa, and the kids now that the lawn has finally been mowed after all these years. ;-)

 The beach house living room box was made from a regular corrugated cardboard box. Siding, windows, and a porch do a good job of hiding the humble origins.

I too love the landscape. Did you create the dolls yourself? I know you can as I have one very cute baby you sent me.

De said...

Thank you, Drora! I did make all of these dolls.
