  3. What are you up to today? This week?

    When we're on the rod and the phone rings the passenger is the designated phone person, and if the caller wants to speak to the driver they are told to call back later (guesstimating what time we'll be making a stop).
  4. Total newbie from Germany here

    Hello Mareike, sorry to hear the Glencroft didn't work out. If you are looking for solid house kits, I would suggest to check out dolls house direct - they will offer a Harry Potter themed kit soon. I believe it will be the Great Hall? And also maplestreet. Both are in the UK - so the shipping might not break the bank. I'll post the links to their websites for you: Maplestreet Dolls House Direct   And a picture from the prototype: Great Hall

  6. Mini power table saw etc

    Thank you all, I think I will go with the one Sable has. My son gave me a tool he bought for cutting holes in drywall  but according to youtube it is a lemon,it did what he wanted it ti do but then didn't need it so p[assed it on to me. The idea is good though, it is a multi tool and it will cut doors and windows out of whatever, On you tube I found a video that rated the top ten on these multi tools , the one I have which is a Milwaukee 12 didn't even make the bottom 10 so I will look around at some of the higher placed ones..  I think I am OK for a  regular Dremel type tool. My husband had a very good Dremel  purchased as his old one had died, he never got to use it though, then  it want on loan out and vanished. I have a similar tool that someone bought him before he replaced the Dremel it is a Jobmate, I have used it a couple of times but not really put it to the test. Fortunately whoever borrowed the new Dremel didn't take the case so I have a 500 piece accessory set and they fit the Jobmate too so I think I will stick with that for now. I will look further into the Dremel trio, thanks Holly Sable I suspect your Rigid multitool is similar to the ones I saw on you tube so I will look at that too, if the one I have is a lemon there is not much pointing in keeping it ,if I am going to buy some decent tools I may as well push the boat out and replace it.   Thank you for all the help, it is pretty mind boggling when one goes looking for stuff and the ads make it all sound wonderful. I feel I understand a lot more now.
  7. Bad News Bears

    Well, I finally got a return call yesterday and the assistant to the lawyer stated they never received the money. So Monday morning I'm going back to SS and get a printout of what money was sent where and when. Then I'm going to bring that printout over to the lawyer's office and go from there. There's an organization that gives free legal advice and depending on what happens on Monday, I'll give them a call on Tuesday. One way or the other, I'm getting my money.
  8. Ebay, Etsy & Craig's List Links

    Carmen and Emily, Thank you so much for the information on the house.  I am really excited to get it at the price I did.  I haven't built a 1:24 scale, so this will be a learning curve for me.  I did  download the picture of the instructions that were posted on the ebay listing so I could enlarge it to see if I could find anything about the scale but it didn't state it on the front page.  I am just loving this house.  Can't wait to get it!   Again, thanks for the info and I will let you know when I get it what scale it is.
  9. Bricks and MORTAR

    I just grouted some home-made tiles with texture paste from the art supply store and it went really well. It is very smooth textured and stays flexible.
  10. Need inspiration, what ya cooking tonight

    Thanks Holly. We knew it was time, but that doesn't make it better. And I guess I misunderstood about dinner plans for tonight, and we're not cooking out after all. Apparently he's going to do that one night this week while I'm at mama's house every night visiting the grandson. So not sure about tonight. Shrimp scampi sounds good, I actually bought the stuff for that today. But I hate to have that without Lawson, and he won't be home until late tonight. Hmmm... Guess we'll see what comes up!
  11. What's everyone working on?

    Here's a link to MLI Designs album with above mentioned couch in it. She has a wonderful gallery full of lovely albums.
  12. New Brick-and-Mortar Mini Shop in WA

    That's great to hear, glad business is doing well! 
  13. Natasha Mini Decoupage?

    I have several of her sets but have never used them so I can't testify about the ease or the outcome. Similar concerns about messing them up. I especially liked the ones that are similar to the RL black lacquer Russian fairy tale boxes.
  14. Painting

    Be sure to pound down the lid so it's tight all the way around.  In addition o shaking the bejeezis out of the can, invert it from time to time to give the pigment a gravity assist to get it off the bottom of the can.
  15. The UP House - My first dollhouse

    It looks like you're off to a great start.  If the house really is 1:14 scale, you're going to have to scratch build most everything you put into it.  Check into some of Patricia King's books.

  17. Flocking and fiurring blank anaimals

    When I went to the Paizley Paws site it seemed like it was just down temporarily.
  18. 1:48-scale dollhouse almost done

    Thanks Sable.  Mike's wall would've all be 'square' but I just couldn't manage to get it right with everything teetering when I glued ceilings on.  But that's okay - I am liking the general look of the house.
  19. Harbor Freight is a great way to find out if you're going to want to use a tool a lot; if it wears out too soon you know you probably want to inve$t in a better replacement, and some of them last a surprisingly long time.
  20. La Bafana research witchy Mrs. Claus legend

    I was hoping someone with Italian heritage could tell us more about her.  "Flown under the radar" lol 
  21. Where to purchase your Dollhouse?

  23. found this gem on the side or the road, cant wait to restore

    I love that house! Enjoy!
  24. what kind of dollhouse is this?

    Sarah, Samantha in Australia has identified your house as an Artply Rutherford.  If it's coming apart because it was built with hot glue, it's very easy to take it apart with a heat gun or hair dryer, scrape off the old hot glue and rebuild it properly with carpenters' wood glue.  Do take some time to post an introduction in the Newcomers' Forum.  Will this be your first house?
