Fabric Doll House. Green Gables

Well guys, one little girl has already got her gift for Christmas, so I can show it here.

I wanted to create something special for the little lady, especially because she has a wonderful romantic mom who loves great classics. Not long thinking, I created a tiny rag doll with red hair and sewed for her a house. I named the doll Anne Shirley.

“But if you call me Anne, please call me Anne with an ‘e’.” (c)

And, as you may have guessed, her house is a symbolic version of Green Gables from the novel by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery.

“She opened her eyes and looked about her. They were on the crest of a hill. The sun had set some time since, but the landscape was still clear in the mellow afterlight. To the west a dark church spire rose up against a marigold sky. Below was a little valley and beyond a long, gently-rising slope with snug farmsteads scattered along it. From one to another the child’s eyes darted, eager and wistful. At last they lingered on one away to the left, far back from the road, dimly white with blossoming trees in the twilight of the surrounding woods. Over it, in the stainless southwest sky, a great crystal-white star was shining like a lamp of guidance and promise.” (c)

Let’s look inside.

Anne has a nice little bed…

and wardrobe with some cute clothes.

She has a bright skirt and beautiful dress. Sorry, Anne, it is although without puffed sleeves.

“Puffed sleeves are so fashionable now. It would give me such a thrill just to wear a dress with puffed sleeves…” (c)

She can take a bath with a yellow rubber duck…

wear a cute robe after bathing…

and look into the mirror.

She can also make some tea in a small cozy kitchen.

And it is so good to sitting at the table looking at the favorite geranium!

“Oh, I like things to have handles even if they are only geraniums. It makes them seem more like people. How do you know but that it hurts a geranium’s feelings just to be called a geranium and nothing else? You wouldn’t like to be called nothing but a woman all the time. Yes, I shall call it Bonny…” (c)

Here are some more pictures of this portable fabric doll house. It is a good toy for home or in travel.

I think this is also a nice acquaintance with ‘Anne Shirley of Green Gables’ by Lucy Maud Montgomery.

“It’s delightful when your imaginations come true, isn’t it?” (c)

Happy New Year!
