Cinderella’s Handmade Miniature Kitchen
January 2010. We decided to make a dollhouse kitchen for Cinderella.
Oh! The toys you can make out of hoarding recyclables!Well, sorry for the misleading statement…the wooden “cabinets” boxes, the crayola model magic, etc were purchased from Michael’s craft store. So, here, I am not a recycling purist.
The completed dollhouse kitchen!
I kid you not, I made the shiny miniature kettle out of 1) the latch assembly part of a door knob cylinder 2) a huge button, 3) some Aluminum foil and etc! If you have special needs elopers in your home, you know what I mean about being intimately cognizant with the anatomy of door lock doo-hickey and thing-a-mabobs. Sigh.
La dee da… Cinderella sweeping her new kitchen floor.That was my first handmade doll. The make-up is a little bright on a young girl, but it all gets washed out in the spotlight of a heavy metal concert.
“Hmm…I wonder who could be ringing my doll bell again?” Cinderella wondered aloud to the guffawing nursing-mother-and-child-donkey-dyad.
Some inspirations behind this…
