  1. I love them! I also love the fact that my great-grandmother used to make them for my nana and her sisters, and that's why my nana bought them for me as a child and taught me to make my own. It sort of gives it a history that makes it more meaningful.
  2. Lol I had a blonde moment and thought that meant sewing machines that make you a cup of tea! That'd be handy though. I used to collect dolls, about ten years ago I came up with a grand plan to get Barbies, repaint their faces and redress them in historically accurate costumes. . . now I have a wardrobe full of naked Barbies and boxes of vintage fabric and ONE doll I redressed. I also sort of collect paper dolls. . . but only ones I've made, and to make them I collect pictures of anything to do with historical clothing.

    Hi, I'm a new member. I'm building my first dollhouse, the Garfield; because it's something I've always wanted to do. Even though I only started planning it in October and building less than a month ago, I'm a teensy bit obsessd. It's eating all my time and spare cash and even thought this one is barely started, half the time I'm thinking about the house I'm going to build next when this one is "finished". . . pretty sure it will never be finished. I'm loving it, even though I'm fairly sure my family thinks I'm losing my mind and are getting really blank looks on their faces whenever I start rambling (AGAIN) about miniature woodtrim and wallpaper and the best way to hang doors.

    I'm actually looking forward to the making bits and pieces part! I know it'll take longer than just buying stuff and be fiddly and probably have lots of mistakes along the way but it will also be the best way of getting exactly what I want for the house instead of just having to chose from what companies make.

    I found it easier to do my kitchen steps with the foundation upside down, I think I may have put the floor on first too. There's a sort of hole once the floor goes on, you put one of the square pieces at each end of the hole. Then the riser goes longways between the porch floor and the step andthe step goes over the hole. I hope that makes sense, I'm not very good at explaining things.
