  1. Past Hour
  2. Best Thing I Ever Made!

    Please let's not get off on any political topics!
  3. What are you up to today? This week?

    Cool tree, Jackie.
  4. 1:24 Scale & 1:144 Scale Lighting: How?

    I did forget to mention that they are very good on the phone, will answer questions and point you in the right direction.  I called to see if they would add on something and he said he was going to call because I had checked off the wrong voltage in my order if I wanted to use batteries, we got it all fixed over the phone.  This is how I am going to light my stump fairy house using double A batteries, but for a mini a coin battery may be a better option,  There are so many options including on off switches that you can hide in a rock or bushes and even remote control.
  5. Making porcelain dollhouse people

    One of the reasons I think I'll keep on with the polymer clay is I never know who or what will emerge from the clay, but, by golly, they have lots of personality!
  6. Grandpa's new project

    I think postage is high most places.  I don't send goody packages to my overseas friends any more; the last time I about fainted when we paid the postage on a very small, lightweight package.
  7. Am I being too picky???

    I will be contacting HBS to send the staircase back.    Thank you all.
  8. Today
  9. The link to the instructions doesn't work.  
  10. Ebay, Etsy & Craig's List Links

    I like the look of this one, Magnolia, there seems to be a lot of them online, but some come without boxes, instructions or pictures.  I looked at one on Amazon and the reviews were bad, stuff missing, wood not very high quality.  This one on ebay is free shipping 
  11. Yesterday
  12. Looking for 1:6 scale help

    Thank you Linda and Keith, I did finish this project a while back thankfully and had a very happy little girl. I'm back to working on my 1:12 projects.  :)
  13. What's everyone working on?

    I end up with lots of splinters from barn work, not the cleanest place in the world!  Sometimes I only realize it when it starts to get infected, al least they come out easier then lol
  14. First Room Box

    My first project was a room box I bought from Hobby Lobby I recommend that you cut out any doors or windows before it is assembled....I had some Opps and boo boo's so to speak while cutting, but you can fix a lot things with filler and spackle.    
  15. Chandelier Christmas Ornaments

    Never get between a man and his fishing hooks.
  16. Never-fail fudge recipe -- got one?

    Thanks Kathie for the tip to read the comments. I'll definitely do that!
  17. Last week
  18. Another Feel Good Article

    Sarah, how about a bowl of biscuits and sausage gravy to go with those grits?
  19. making porcelain dolls in your own kiln

    This is an old thread and I'm wondering if Peggy in Washington ever made her dolls.  I'm just getting supplies together and gathering info and so grateful to the people who share their knowledge. I keep googling questions and greenleaf threads come up. I hope when I get started my experiences can help others too. One thing I'm learning...it's not a surprise that porcelain dollmaking is becoming a lost art...wow so many variables and skills to learn! Those high price tags on well made dolls are well deserved. 
  20. My New Etsy Shop!

    Any time would be a pleasure Sable.........the 'backsplash' is yours anyway!!!!
  21. Good Blogs

    I look forward to seeing it. 
  22. Showcase Our Miniature Finds

    I found this cute mini-train ornament yesterday at Hallmark. If you are looking for a train to go around your mini-tree, this one is very detailed.
  23. I finished dry fitting my half scale Diana!  This is my first dollhouse so I was unclear about whether or not dry fitting was necessary.  Thanks to folks on this forum I was encouraged to GO FORTH AND DRY FIT and I'm so glad I did.  The dry fit showed me that my first floor dividing wall is slightly warped so I can work on flattening it.  Also, I installed the second floor upside down so the stairs don't properly fit.  So, yes.  Dry fitting is good.

    1. Mid-life madness

      It looks great. Such a sweet house.

  24. Toyboxes & Bath Caddies

    We had a lovely little whirlpool tub when we converted our downstairs half bath to a full bath in our Havana house, about a year before we moved.
  25. Wow, 6 degrees! Where are you? I am in Erie, Pennsylvania...we have been the snowiest city in America several years. I can drive through a blizzard without blinking at this point.
