  1. Past Hour
  2. So how is the weather where you're at ?

    Spring has sprung, the grass has riz, but where the heck the posies is?  All y'all up north are really getting hammered this winter.
  3. Atlanta folks

    I hope our northern AL members are all OK.  We had some bodacious wind gusts here, but nothing like!
  4. What's everyone working on?

    That wee corset is lovely!
  5. Full scale tips...

    Li'l Bratz dolls work in 1:12 scale and back in the 1970s there were 1:12 Barbies; I used some in my farmhouse build that I found in a doll hospital that I redressed.
  6. Hello - a complete newbie!

    Welcome to the little family, Skye.  The Arthur was the very first house that the Building Team built and blogged.  I had a damaged window insert and wrote about how I made do.
  7. The Country DollHouse kits are Almost Gone Again!

    Or dress her like one of the Strawberry Patch dolls with the dress, apron and sunbonnet.  I seem to recall they were very colorful.
  8. Today
  9. Houses and rooms of the ancient world

    Thanks for this link, Karen. The Czechoslovakian classroom has given me some inspiration for décor in my languishing Bohemian Inn.  
  10. You don't want to



  11. Yesterday
  12. Hello from Idaho!

    Hello!  :D

  15. Last week
  16. Grandt Line closing down

    Crossing my fingers as well... Grandt Line, Phoenix Models and Houseworks were my top 'go to' when it comes to components, specially doors and hardware. I hope the others remain in business for a while or I will really miss those accessories...
  17. What are you up to today? This week?

    My fingers (and toes) are crossed for you, Lawanda.
  18. New to Miniatures

     I used lighter fluid to soften the glue. I use it for a lot of things. I use it instead of goo- be-gone (if that’s what you call it) .  It dry very fast.
  19. Wiring for Harrison remodel

    I am currently renovating one I purchased second hand.  It has already been wired with tape wine & unfortunately 1. didn't work & 2 the grommets went right through the walls appearing on exterior.  You might be successful if you tape over each connection. 
  20. Winter project underway

    I like that you would take off the time. You have children and time with them is always for the best . As you can never get that time /age back. I learned the hard way working to much doesn't really pay off for a family if you can take the time off do it.
  21. Your dream house

    My dream house would have to be a recreation of Highclere Castle from Downton Abbey fame. I just LOVE the staircase and main hall area. All that gorgeous wood work and the beautiful multi story atrium. Divine!
  22. The Harrison, second hand

    Thank you.  We already tested & needed to remove wiring.
  23. How to tie a mini bow around a fork

    My book on making & dressing dollshouse dolls by Sue Atkinson shows how to do this; the video shows someone actually doing it.
  24. Furniture builds

    could move to the bedroom as a nightstand and another one that mirrors it . I's still a nice piece   
  25. You can measure and cut wallpaper, etc. before you glue the house (but wait to install until glued) because measuring can be tricky once the house is together.  It also makes it easier to cut out windows.  Leave the paper a little longer on the side walls where you are going to attach them to the back wall.  That way you won't have seams visible in the corners.  If you do wait to measure and cut wallpaper until after you have glued, cut a template first with scratch paper so that if you make any mistakes measuring or cutting, you have not wasted a piece of wallpaper.
  26. Glueing jig

    In addition to mini furniture and stairs I used mine to put together a rabbit hutch for my last build and awning frames for the one I'm picking at now.
  27. Showcase Our Miniature Finds

    Well, Kelly, I think the paper looks lovely with the set, but instead of an accent wall, I'd do paper up top and white beadboard or wainscoting on the bottom of the walls. Full on paper over the whole wall would be too dark, I think. As to tiles, I like the idea of mixing in blue accented on white with plain white tiles. I think it'll look very elegant when done, whichever direction you choose. Looking forward to seeing the finished room!
  28. Help! Real life mini furniture kit 200

      I'll have to dig them out and scan them. I'll message you when I have them ready so I can email them to you.
