While browsing around today I found this amazing artist! She makes the most realistic miniature animals! Her website is Kerri Pajutee Miniature Animals.
I've been looking for a golden retriever, a cat (or two) and a parrot for my dollhouse. I wish I could afford to buy one of Kerri's dogs and cats! I can't believe how precious they are! She shares her technique on her website too. Absolutely amazing!
I did find a beautiful little parrot at Matlock Miniatures. I bought a few other things too. Their prices are very reasonable. I don't plan to purchase many things for my dollhouse but I fell in love with this parrot, a sailboat and a couple of beach chairs...
Look at all of the beautiful detail and the colors! He will be the star of the "Beach House Blues" for sure! Any suggestions on a name for this gorgeous and trouble-making bird?
I spray painted the roof of my dollhouse last night and started painting the exterior. I also made a little shell mirror. It turned out so nice! Hard to get a good photo of it but I love it!
I used my hair dryer to loosen a mirror from a free Clinique compact, glued it on a piece of cardstock and then added the tiny shells I found at Michael's. I can't believe this Florida girl had to buy sea shells! I need to make a visit back "home!"
As you can see, I have lots of painting to do. I just wanted to see how the mirror would look in the living room! I would love to make a fireplace/mantle too but don't think my beach house needs a fireplace!?
Hope you have a beautiful day!
