my creative space

Today I'm doing some thinking, planning and list making...

deciding how to make these two op shop finds a little more beautiful...

(the CD rack will be turning into a dollhouse - inspired by this and this)

and checking out places for a winter beachside break ...


(oh, and having a big rest so I can start creating again, doing some of that too...)

See more energetic and inspiring spaces over at Kirsty's.

Edited to add: I'm also linking this up with Sophie's Flea Market Finds, and Sarah's Thrift Thursday... maybe I'll see you there?

I have been wanting one for a while but cannot justify such crazy prices for dolls houses.

Great idea about a dolls house! I'd have never have come up with that! How cute.

For the record - the cd dollhouse thing is not my original idea - first saw it at:

I think their dollhouses were a bit cuter to start with - love those windows - but will see what I can do!

I love the idea of the CD tower being turned into a doll house, they look so cute. The doll cradle is a great find, wooden toys are the best. I look forward to seeing your doll house makeover. xo

very cute dolls cradle. My plan is to sew my liitle girl a quilt for her bed and a matching mini dolls one for her dolls bassinet. The cradle will look great whatever makeover you have in mind, be it painted or left as is.

The CD rack looks much like my friend's bathroom storage, extra rolls of paper and such. Hers has cottage like features painted on it.
The cradle also could be made into some sort of storage. I could see it painted in big retro florwers.
