  1. Houseworks Clay Bricks?

    Your welcome!  I had to look them up on US eBay to find them  I have four pair and use them for the bricks and other things.  Once I located them on US, I looked on the Aussie eBay.  
  2. Houseworks Clay Bricks?

    I use them all the time.  I have currently used them on the foundation and chimney of the Cape May.  The best way to cut is with small nippers.  You can get clean cuts with little to no chipping.  I use the individual bricks for my corners and small pieces for filling in as well since they are cheaper than the brick sheets. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Expert-Quality-4-5-Mini-Precision-End-Cut-Nipper-Beading-Cutter-Jewelry-Pliers-/201546670371?hash=item2eed1e2123:g:tS4AAOSwHb9ZcyE2
  3. Real houses from kits

    Just a few examples of Sears kit homes.  There are some that are very grand!
  4. Ebay, Etsy & Craig's List Links

    That is a Skilcraft kit  I have that one in my stash as well!  They are great houses as they are 1/4" plywood (die cut), assemble easily, and are very sturdy.  I have four of Skilcraft kits in my collection and am anxious to get started on one.  The Skilcraft Victorian was my first ever build.

    It is the SW Crafts Fantasy Island House.  I have the kit in my stash.  Very rare to find, but that seems pricey even built!

    RGT 1/2 scale First Lady with Free Shipping.  Buy it Now at $249 which seems a bit pricey, but they are rare  I bought mine earlier this year for much less on eBay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/real-good-toys-dollhouse-kit-1-2-1-24-half-scale-first-lady-vintage-1980-wow/182763027267
  9. Dollhouses on TV and Movies

    Found another one!  From the original Freaky Friday (1976) in Annabel's bedroom, a tin Wolverine Dollhouse.

    I am watching Emily's (Fov) double Victoriana bash with interest on ideas for this.  I have no idea when it will get started

    Here is the Skilcraft Victorian Mansion kit again at a GREAT price.  Shipping is cheap too.  The seller has it listed at the Artply Allison. http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-In-Box-Artply-THE-ALLISON-Vintage-Wood-Victorian-DOLLHOUSE-Kit-Model-77-/322717007123?hash=item4b236ebd13:g:-PwAAOSwgKpZr0I4 Woodline's Victorian with furniture kit!  I know a few people on this site are looking for this one! http://www.ebay.com/itm/VTG-VICTORIAN-WOODEN-DOLL-HOUSE-KIT-PLUS-FURNITURE-AND-EXTRA-/202047790358?hash=item2f0afc9d16:g:MjQAAOSwBp5Zr0aq  
  12. Looking for opinions...chair fabric

    I will agree with the brown/tan.  My first thought was the green, but after seeing the rug, I am not sure it would match and then be too busy next to one another.  I love how the plum chair looks!!

    Here is the working window set for the Pierce!  I think this is a good price for something really hard to find. http://www.ebay.com/itm/working-wood-windows-for-the-pierce-victorian-dollhouse-greenleaf-/122679142726   I'm not sure if the seller really knows this house is NOT a 1940s or she purchased it being told it was.  This is from a plan from Craft Products Miniatures sold in the 70s and early 80s. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1940s-Fully-Furnished-and-Electrified-Vintage-Wood-Victorian-Dollhouse-/272827796294?hash=item3f85cdcb46:g:q00AAOSwcB5ZGxWH She has several other houses listed as well.  I think this one is the RTG The Quillen http://www.ebay.com/itm/Fully-Furnished-and-Refurbished-Vintage-1-12-Scale-Wood-Dollhouse-/272827795948?hash=item3f85cdc9ec:g:MrgAAOSw0HVWBqJt  
  14. My Belated Birthday Gift From My Sister

    Thank you all for the great compliments.  I am going to have to show this to my sister.  She will probably be embarrassed I posted it here.  But I had to show off my gift and her great work!
  15. So, I am really itching to get started on the Vineyard Cottage.  I want to use one of my spiral staircases in it, and see so many possibilites.  But I keep telling myself I need to be closer to being done with the Cape May.  So it make me think, how many builds do you all have going at once?  I know my friends are going to think I am crazy to start another one with the Cape May not finished.
