Brambly Update

For the last few weeks ive been really busy with my Brambly house. Ive been busy decorating and making quite a variety of minis for all the rooms. There is still a long way to go to completion. but its so nice to see the house coming to life and looking quite pretty.
Theres a lot of photos here but its been so long since i showed my house here kind of had no choice as to the amount of photos.

 My friend Suzanne sent these little mice to me to pick which size and style was right for the crib. You can see photos of the crib below. I picked the smallest mouse, so she is making another 2 of them so i can have 3 babies in the crib together.

Also from Suzanne. They are so tiny. Ive made the other 2 showing in the background. These are for the nursery.

Bottles for the bathroom.

New furniture.

Lovely little kits.

 A rug kit. This is for the living room.

Fabrics for making towels, dresses and shoes etc.

For the nursery and kitchen.

Tools for the dad mouse

Turning these into dummies/soothers for the baby mice.

Bits and bobs.

Very much treasured by me! I also have an elephant showing in a photo below. Sent to me from my friend Janice.

 The furniture painted and aged.

Made from the kits showing above.

I started the rug kit. This is going to take a long time and think the house will be finished before the rug lol.

Pretty bonnets i made. The smallest is too small for an adult 1:12 doll.

 Dressing the dresser... still not fully filled. though

Apron i made

I made the half testers and pelmet etc, i glued the quilt pattern onto to fabric... looks quite effective.

For the walls.

The start of the crib for 3 baby mice.

Bathroom Kit

A little treasure from my friend Janice

The nursery.

The bathroom kits complete. I enamelled all that is white.

The exterior base... needs lots more paint work still. 

Couch i made from a kit.

 The main bedroom.

The bathroom. 

Little treasures with the crib in the nursery.

I need to make the lady mouse pic too. These will hang over their bed as their wedding photos.

Baby mouse. My friend Suzanne is making the other two mice.


  1. Oh how cute, that baby mouse looks so lonesome in the large crib waiting for his/her siblings to join in. What a lucky mouse family they are, the house is beautiful, they will be the envy of all their relatives!

  2. Everything looks lovely! I am enjoying your progress on the house. I never read Brambly House, from what I can remember but I always dreamed of little houses where mice would live and all the things they'd have inside. Watching you build this is like watching a childhood fantasy cone true! As I'm sure it is for you and many others!

    Looking forward to your next update! :)


  3. Absolutely beautiful and I do like your furniture,etc. the mice are delightful :)

  4. Oh, how many adorable things! I love the bed for little mice.
    Your house will be beautiful arranged, enjoy!
