  1. Today

    Tara, most jewellers will have a watch repairer either in house or that they always use. When I have had watches repaired/serviced, it has never been very costly. But I am in Australia, so not sure what America is like.

  4. Seeking a book

    PS, in case someone is looking up horse tack and finds this, there was a series of four articles in "Nutshell News" by Sylvia Rountree called "The Scale Saddlery," each with instructions about making particular items -- January 1985: “Equestrian saddlery and accoutrements” (pp.112-??) February 1985: “The snaffle bridle” (pp.88-89, 107-109) March 1985: “English saddles” (pp.74-75, 78-81) April 1985: “A bit about bridles” (pp.82-88) and a "horsey" issue in January 1982 with numerous articles and profiles, including the how-to "Grooming for a photo finish” (pp.77-79) by Sandy Tomezik about customizing Breyer horse models.
  5. First time builder in Texas!

    Hi SBL,  I live in Houston.  Where are you located in Texas?  I also built the Beacon Hill.  It was my first build and I learned so much about dollhouse construction.  I put lighting in mine too and for the first one it's was a trial in patience for sure.

  8. First Time Builder in NYC

    Hi Michael, Welcome I'm so glad you tried the scribing. I learned that type right here from Kathie too. I works great I have now used it on furniture too. I made a wood table top from leftovers and did it. I think my table looks great. Thanks Kathie for the tip I use it often.
  9. Decorating your houses for the holidays?

    I Don't decorate inside for fear of going way overboard like I do in my real house. I do decorate with lots of glitter trees around my houses. Since I collect christmas trees I use them to bring Christmas to my dollhouses. Here's one of my houses decorated for Christmas.
  10. I lost all of my miniatures and miniature-making supplies too! Welcome!

    I build out of foam core for almost everything (furniture, whole structures, etc). I highly recommend it.

  13. hardwood flooring

    I've seen people use vinyl, peel-and-stick flooring that they cut into strips. I'm currently planning to use that technique, and I paid about $1 per "plank."

  17. Do You Believe in Siding After a Build?

    I've definitely sided once the house is built, but I've never had the courage to wallpaper after building. Kudos!

  19. Refurbishing Old Harrison Dollhouse

    I've made dollhouse kits more stable by gluing blocks of wood in the corners of the base (under the first floor).  I've put corner trim on vertical outside corners of the house and glued horizontal pieces of trim on the outside walls to cover up the places where the tab/slots are.  Another thing that helps is to put baseboard and cornice molding in the interior rooms making sure walls get glued to floors in the process.  Good luck with your project.
