The abandoned house is done!

I have no idea what sort of time warp I hit but I've managed to get the place done!
 





The crate in this room opens... this fellow is in it. For now he can stay but he'll probably be replaced one day with something more interesting.

 

I love this shrunken head. He's made with a bead, paperclay, thread and wool.


I sliced my thumb open making all the books in the house.


There's the cause of the stain on the first floor ceiling.


That portrait's a bit creepy...


Eesh! What is going on here?!?!

 

Peep holes from the next room! True story... when we were looking for houses we went through one which had a sort of strange glass pirate ship picture in one room. When we went into the adjoining bedroom we found that the port hole of the ship was actually a peep hole! Creepy!


This is kind of a nightmare room. Chains, a skull mask, doll parts, snake skin....


... and evidence of something gone a little bit wrong.


P.S. Here's a reminder of the before which was left on the side of the road, waiting for the garbage truck.

  9. This is awesome! I have a bunch of miniature friends (including myself) who would fall all over themselves to have a house like this.

    Hope your thumb is healing.

  12. The creepy portrait-eye peepholes are brilliant, and I especially like the discolouration on the other side of the wall, where the peeper's face was pressed up to the eye holes. Ewww! But I think the smashed windows are my favourite detail, especially the shards of broken glass.

    Does this mean you do your best work when you're under pressure?

  17. Hello,
    I am the editor for American Miniaturist Magazine and was wondering if you would like to feature your abandoned dollhouse in our October issue. I would love to share your work with our readers if you would be interested. It's a great way to reach many people who have a passion for miniatures. You can email me at auralea@ashdown.co.uk if you are interested.
    Thanks and have a lovely day,

  19. Oh this is GREAT! Just GREAT!!! I love it sooooo much!! Makes me want to get right back into doll houses again. In fact I made this same kit for my younger sister back in 1970 something. If only I had you imagination she wouldn't have gotten a plain old dollhouse lol. Of course she probably wouldn't have loved it either. Being an easily creeped out little kid. ;) But I love this...what a magnificent Halloween decoration this would be in my front window!
