    Love that floor!

    Madurodam! https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madurodam I've never been but maybe someday  
  3. Full scale Diana dimensions

    I happen to have a half scale (1:24) Diana in dry fit. It’s foundation footprint is about 10.5” x 7.5”, so at 1:12 it would be about 21” x 15”. Greenleaf's store website says 27” x 16” but that takes into account the back eave overhang and the side bays and gable overhangs.

    It’s lovely! Congratulations!

    Like Sable said, do a test. The mod podge might cloud. While time consuming, this type of test is valuable.

    I like the paneling a lot and the texture on the ceilings is great. Love the fireplace  
  9. Half Scale Greenleaf Tennyson

    Welcome back! I’m so glad you’re starting to feel well enough to indulge in minis again! One step at a time I love the Tennyson and particularly half scale so am looking forward to watching your progress. Have a great time with it!
  10. You all are a terrible influence ;-)

    I was “no dolls” too when I first got started, but I’ve definitely changed in my approach. I tend towards fantasy characters and animals. I think the right doll can give the build “life.”  I agree with Karin, Miniatures opens up a whole world of skills as we explore other art forms in order to expand our craft. 
  11. 1:24 scale furniture

    Part of the fun (IMO) of half scale is the hunt for just the right pieces. It’s true that there are not as many options for per-made items in halfscale, so I make a lot of mine. There are a lot more sellers of half scale furniture kits than there were five years ago. That makes it easier.
  12. Old Farm Theme

    Love the old vehicles!
  13. thrift store music box
