The Gazebo

I’m not qualifying this as the dollhouse project, but technically it is part of the dollhouse. When Samantha’s Gazebo came out last spring, I knew I wanted to make it. It has taken a whole year, but oh well. I finally finished it (For now) and I think it turned out pretty well. DSCN7889[1]      Last spring, I wanted to find a top for the gazebo. We looked at our hardware store. When we came to the bird feeder section, there was a perfect bird feeder. It had six sides, a top, a bottom. It was a little over my price range, but it was perfect enough, I didn’t care. The bird feeder part was cracked though, and it was the only one left. We went to guest desk thing. I asked, (Being 11, they were more likely to give me a discount.) Since I wasn’t going to use to feed the birds tuppence a bag, tuppence tuppence a bag. (Shout out to everyone in my homeschool groups’s Mary Poppins) it was a perfect bird feeder for my gazebo. The price was even better. Since it couldn’t be used for what it was made for, they gave me eight dollars off, bringing it to four dollars! DSCN7887[1]  Here it is! I used dowels from a broken chair, and beads to lengthen it. I painted it all purple/white. DSCN7888[1]         I used Popsicle sticks to brace it, and I love the way it looks!DSCN7890[1]    It’s a lot smaller then Samantha’s, but it still is pretty big. Big enough for two dolls to sit in chairs and talk.

I am going to use it for camp, and a meeting place for the dolls. I am very happy with it, and it only cost five dollars, (I used dollar store foam bored for the top and bottom.) I’m glad I made it, and it turned out better than I expected.


The Fairy Garden


“Wake up, Wake up!” Ruthie yelled. “I have something that you HAVE to see!”

“Fine but this better be good or I am confining you to it for the next week.” Samantha grumbled.


The girls stood next to it.

“Okay, Turn around.” Ruthie said


We came in. It was a beautiful garden with a bench, and a swing, and a pond, and even a gazebo! Everything was a bit too small but we could sit on the bench.

“This is amazing!” Holly said.

“You fit right in.” Kit joked. “You are a plant too.”

“I wanna live here like the Hollys.” Holly replied.

“Let’s go show the mini Isabelles.” Samantha said and everyone agreed.


We went to the Isabelle house and got everyone.


We showed the garden to them and then left.


“This place is great.” Dancer Isabelle said.

“It is like a fairy garden with us the fairys.” Normal Isabelle said.


“I love the gazebo.” design Isabelle said.

“Well I love the whole place.” Dancer Isabelle said.


Bethany just sat on the swing and watched. I loved the swing, it really worked.


“It is like a little forest.” Design Isabelle said.


“I also love the little bridge.” She said


I actually made the garden at a program at the Library yesterday. It was supposed to be a fairy garden but I made it the right size for this.
