Window treatment ideas needed

Hello I know I have been missing for a couple of weeks. I have been busy working on completing the oriental room and starting the bathroom and finishing the hallway.

I added a few accessories to the oriental room. For now I'm done with this room I will be adding some accessories to the dresser, and this room is stamped Complete!

I have begun work on the bathroom, and I must say I really like how it turned out. The windows really need some kind of window treatments, but what kind? I was thinking about making some non-working venetian blinds, or maybe some window shades like Kathi from Beautiful Mini Blessings made. I love the window shades she made, head over there and check them out! Your input is greatly appreciated.

As I was working on this room ideas kept popping into my head. The trim pop, not buying a faucet but making one pop, changing the original plans on what to use as the floor to what I have now pop. I think all those popping sounds were beneficial:)

Ok, back to the window coverings, what should I use to give the lil people a little privacy? I was thinking about covering about a 1/3 of the window, who am I kidding I barely passed collage algebra, what is a 1/3. In other words I'm going to leave the top part exposed, lol. All I'm missing now is a little toilet and more accessories.

The hallway has been in the making for sometime. It's not finished I don't believe I will ever be done with it. So here is the picture so far
 I made all the pictures. I found the table and chair at a thrift store. It was in a lil room box. I'm looking for a nice rug to go in this area. 

I may add more pictures to this wall. I really like the hints of blue in the hallway.  

Because this hallway is so dark, I think I'm going to have to purchase a battery-operated lamp to sit on the table. I'm hearing mix reviews about the battery-operated lights, any comments? Whenever someone sees my house they say why didn't you put lights in it? I'm like I didn't want to. The time it would have took to wire this house was too much for me. I'll pass. I rather invest in the battery lights, an investment that I'm seeing is $. Just maybe I should have…

At last… I brought another dollhouse! I realize I like decorating vs. building, I think. I'm going to buy The Orchid Dollhouse for my stepdaughter; we are going to build this together. I better begin before I start interning this summer; I know my schedule will be crazy with a capital C. So here is my new dollhouse I found her at the Antique flea market in Webster, Florida. This is Coventry Cottage by Greenleaf. I'm unsure what I'm going to do with it for now. To be continue….


  1. Cuanto tiempo sin saber de ti!!!
    Pues si que has trabajado a fondo y te ha merecido la pena, la casa está quedando preciosa.
    Esa casita nueva es una maravilla, me encanta.
    Me alegro de saber de ti.
    Mil besos...Julia

  2. If you have a mini person, stand them by the window - have your blinds start at about their neck to the bottom window sill (to cover the bottom portion) It looks great!

  3. Love the color in your kitchen! MY favorite. :D
    To answer your question (finally) I used sheer dress makers fabric for my window shade. It is very thin, woven and frays like crazy! I think it is either batiste or chiffon, don't remember. You can see through it when you hold it up to the light. It's very soft and silky. I bought it at Hancock's fabrics. Hope that helps?
