  1. Retiring from Minis for a While

    Feel better Mary. I know what it's like when it feels like the roof of life just dropped on your head. Sometimes it sounds like you and I are on the same cycle... which at the moment feels like the "hung out to dry" cycle. Take care of yourself.
  2. After a long, courageous battle with cancer, my sister passed away on the morning of May 3rd. She leaves behind her husband of 28 years, a son in college, and a daughter who will be graduating from high school next week. We will all miss her dearly.

      So sorry to hear of your loss-during this difficult time, may you find comfort in your memories of her.

  3. making small weird dolls... at least that's the plan.

      Friends for Pickledip?

  4. I get the strangest searches on my blog. Today's was "help my diy bookshelf dollhouse sucks isn't working".

    1. chapchap73

      hmmm...that's a strange one

    2. CatColorado

      I thought so, what exactly did they expect it would do? I think it's my blog troll, he's been quiet, must have just been released from county jail.

  5. This Will Be The Marionette Maker.

    I was going to say that the head is what makes it creepy. Brrr shiver.

      Maybe. lol

    3. armymom166

      Hmmm... that's a great idea!

    4. CatColorado

      I found an old patio table to use, so the house can be in the bedroom but also off the floor. The cat's already pulled the windchime off and has her eye on the windsock.

  7. Granger kits came in yesterday, happy day :D

    1. chapchap73

      Which ones did you get?

    2. CatColorado

      Janet Granger Needlepoint for dollshouses. I got the orange tree wallhanging chart and a tea tray kit. I put pics up on my blog but I'll post again when I actually stitch them up. I'm working on the tea tray right now.

  8. It's very pretty, I like it.
  9. Dresser

    I really like this dresser. You find the neatest things.

    I like it.
  11. Beware credit card thieves! I just had to close mine, butt heads were trying to open music subscriptions, an Amazon account, all on my unemployed, broke self. Nice people out there.

      I'll have to check my statement to be certain, but from talking to the CC company, it sounds like the attempted purchases were all blocked. Even Amazon was "don't think so, THIEF". It appears I was very fortunate that everyone was on the ball.

    3. armymom166

      You are very lucky. My bank account was cleaned out right before Christmas. Bank eventually put the money back in my account, but it sure was a pain. Thieves bought gift cards at Walmart until the money was gone.

    4. CatColorado

      Now that's a nightmare, that's why I don't use a debit card. I had an ex try to clean out my bank account, he thought I owed him. Ever since, no debit cards.

  13. brown base boards or white, that is the question.

    1. chapchap73

      What's the wall color?

    2. CatColorado

      one is sage green, three are white, and one is wallpapered. The wallpaper is dark pink with fine white and brown stripes. window trim is brown, bay window trim is white.

    3. Dalesq

      I tend to do window and baseboard trims the same, so maybe white in the room with the bay and wood in the other rooms, if it doesn't clash or meet up somewhere obvious.

    I'm definitely interested in building one, this looks like fun.
  15. 2nd floor hallway

    You could petitpoint the carpet, but it would take absolutely forever. Printed fabric would definitely be faster.
