***My Quarter-inch scale Bliss Keyhole House*** 

 I just LOVE the new 1/4" scale Bliss houses that Cynthia Howe is offering on her
site. I finished the Keyhole house and wanted to make some people for it. As it
is a reproduction of an antique house I thought I would challenge myself and
make some 1/4" scale china ladies for it. 
These ladies are about 1 1/2" tall and are glaze fired just like the antiques were.
 

I am currently taking orders for the Quarter-scale China ladies.
Note: Each doll is individually sculpted so each will be a bit different.
The dolls are dressed in antique fabrics so each costume is a limited edition as I only have small amounts of it.
They are $75.00 each plus shipping ($6.50 Priority Mail USA).

More dolls coming soon!

The house kit is available from Cynthia Howe.

Dolls make a house a "home".

I did not change too many things from the original kit.
I did stain the wood darker even though Cynthia's kit is more authentic.
I added red trim to the bottom of the attic to finish it off.
I also reversed the wallpapers to make it reminiscent of my mother's house.

 

The lights give the house a warm glow.

The front door is on fabric hinges so it can open.
I also put a clasp and nail on one side to hold the house closed.

This keyhole porch opening just begs for a doll peeking out.

I used a matching green cotton fabric covered with antique netting for the coverlet on the bed.

Cynthia even taught us how to make the rugs in her chat class.

This lady is much tinier than on your screen.

 

A friendly visit.
