Borrower's House

I managed to snap some pics of my daughter's Borrower's house. She and I crafted this glorious borrowed mansion 9 years ago for a school project after reading the book. It was a lot of fun. This one is decorated for Christmas, and we displayed it seasonally for several years. Sadly it was damaged during our last move, and with another move imminent it was relinquished to the trash bin. The bitty abode had three floors. The parlor on the main floor, kitchen on the second floor, and bedroom & bathroom sharing the third floor. (Click a picture to make them larger.)
The parlor is furnished with Altoid tin sofas, a rock fireplace, and velvet curtains.

The spacious kitchen is wallpapered with a delectable menu and sports a band aid tin stove, checkerboard floor, and sand dollar table.


The quaint bathroom has a large shell bathtub and daisy rug. Unfortunately, this room took the most damage and lost it's other fixtures.And finally, the cute bedroom boasts two comfy kitchen sponge mattress beds, a matches chest of drawers, and a real plastic mirror.
And the tour is complete. Isn't imagining fun!

That must've been one interesting house! xD I can tell that you really had let your imagination run away with you when it comes to most of the room decor. It's a shame that it got damaged! (I don't suppose you had "mini people" living in there, do you?)

On a serious note, what an adorable house! <3
