I want to share how I decorated Nelson Crest, my Victorian Doll House, for the Summer Patriotic Holidays.......
We will take a look at the second floor balcony first.......
The balcony is off of Mr. and Mrs.'s Nelson's bedroom.......
Patriotic buntings decorate the house.......
Along with flags which are actually for cupcakes!!!
I decided to place the Patriotic wreath that I made on the door on the balcony because you can see it better up here.......
There are stars and firecrackers on the wreath......
The yard on the left side.............
I still need to paint the white foam that I have the flowering shrubs stuck in to........
 A flag proudly displayed on a flag pole adorns the yard........
Flower pots and garden art in the front yard.......
Flags and firecrackers decorate the front porch......
You can see that the Dairy just delivered milk and eggs.......
The urns filled with flowers are new.......
I bought them for $1.00 each in Dollar General!!
The left side of the yard.....
A wheelbarrow filled with flowers, flower pots and garden art.......
And also a lamp post.....
The side yard on the left.....
Nelson Crest will stay like this all Summer until it is time to decorate it for Halloween........
I hope you enjoyed seeing Nelson Crest and were transported back to another time.....
I lied when I said that this was my last Patriotic post for this Season.....

In my next post, I will be sharing how all my Patriotic decorations look all lit up in the evening......

So I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......

And thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!

  1. Girl, so much detail you have given to this beautiful doll house. Love it! I just adore how you have decorated with the patriotic colors. Oh the flags are too sweet. Thanks for sharing and Happy 4th to you dear lady. Hugs and blessing, Cindy

  2. Your pink dolls house is always fairy. I love the new urns filled with the flowers

  3. I need a dollhouse. I love yours!

  4. Nelson Crest is really decked out for the 4th this year! The milk and eggs delivery on the porch made me giggle....love it! hugs....

  5. I always love to see your dollhouse decorated for a holiday. Miss the days when I decorated mine when kids were little. Several years I tucked the little flags into sales bags when I had a table at our local Lions Dollhouse and Train show; I like a bit of patriotism after working for the VA for 25 years!

  6. Fun to see your dollhouse dresed for the holidays, especially a patriotic one. Happy Juoly, Debbie!
