  • Interests I built my first dollhouse back in 1979. I walked into an old fashioned Mom and Pop type drugstore in a small town in western NY and displayed along the tops of the shelves were dollhouses by Greenleaf. I bought The Jefferson and without any experience I just took it out of the box and glued it together. The house held together for 30 years until I gave it to a little girl who lived next door. I started building dollhouses after 30 plus years and built about 14 different models large and small.
    After another break, I just started working on my minis again and I am having so much fun! I am so glad I came back to Greenleaf Forum! :)
    I also play the piano which I taught for years and recently I moved to New Mexico and can't stop taking photographs of this magical place I now call home!

  1. What's everyone working on?

    I couldn't stand it any longer.  I opened the Canterbury box yesterday and it looks to be in perfect condition.  Does anyone know when The Canterbury house was actually produced?  The wood looks pretty dry but no damage that I can see.  I can't wait to get started after Christmas.  Then again maybe today...lol
  2. What's everyone working on?

    LOL  Holly!  And they are a lot less calories than the real ones!  I love making miniature pasties.  I might have to make an entire mini bakery one of these days!
  3. What's everyone working on?

      I see.  I hope to figure out how to post on the forum again.  lol   I received my Canterbury kit today and the kit box is totally sealed in perfect shape!   I am so pleased.  I hope that the wood inside is also good.  I want to open up the box but you know I can't just open the dang box!   I will have to start on it immediately if I do that!  
  4. What are you up to today? This week?

    I'm going to the doctor ( in a snowstorm!) to see what is going on with my knee.  Way back in September I was wandering around out in the desert and stepped into a Prairie Dog hole, twisted my knee and it has gotten worse ever since.  Always something!!!     
  5. What's everyone working on?

    I didn't know you had to have a Google account to get in.  I should figure out how to get my photos on the site and then it wouldn't be a problem.  lol Thanks for the review 
  6. What's everyone working on?

    Hmmmm!   I was having trouble getting into my own blog yesterday plus when I went to see how the pictures went up they didn't show up the first time. Aliens again messing with my minis!!! I made way too many printie groceries I had enough for two stores!   I'll go check my blog and see what's going on.  Thanks I just checked my blog, was able to get right in.  You shouldn't have a problem getting in if you use this link.  Please let me know if it doesn't work ok?  Roxy's Blog
  7. So how is the weather where you're at ?

    It is very hot down there in the summer for sure Las Cruces is brutal in the summer and not nearly that cold as it is up here in Taos.  We are up at 7000 ft and its not quite as bad in the summer.  We did have a couple of summers lately that got pretty hot but we don't even have AC!   I did buy a swamp cooler this past summer because it was too hot for me!    I would not want to live down in Las Cruces for love nor money.  uh uh....lol
  8. So how is the weather where you're at ?

    I thought I saw you wave on the way!!!   LOL  I live a long ways north from where you were and it was chilly ( or chili) up here.  It never got above 11 degrees in the sun!   I always laugh when people think NM is hot all the time.  
  9. So how is the weather where you're at ?

    I'd take Ft. Lauderdale over Rochester any day!     
  10. What's everyone working on?

    Finished the General Store.   I found it difficult to take good pictures through the windows which leave a glare with the flash and too dark without flash.   Thanks for visiting my blog  https://roxysmm.blogspot.com/  
  11. What's everyone working on?

    Does anyone have pictures of the Canterbury furnished?   I saw excellent exterior photos in the Gallery but none furnished.  Trying to decide if I want to make it a cute little Gingerbread house or something else.  Thanks
  12. So how is the weather where you're at ?

    Hey Sable!  I didn't know that you were an upstate NYer!   Me too!  My family is all from the Rochester area!   I live in New Mexico now but I had my fill of snow for sure!!  lol Its sunny, 40, and beautiful out for the moment.  I don't mind the cold I just hate being dark and gloomy all winter.  New Mexico is usually sunny and bright! It does go down below zero at night because we are over 7,000 ft above sea level!  
  13. What's everyone working on?

    No idea but I like it!!  Looks like you have your work cut out for you!!  :)
  14. What's everyone working on?

    I finished the General Store, still haven't taken pictures for my blog.   I ordered an old Canterbury House from Ebay.   I always worry about getting kits from there due to conditions of an older kit and where the kit has been stored.   I thought I would take a chance because I just love this little house. Ohhh!!!  Checked in the Gallery and found tons of great photos of this cute little house!!!  I want to see if I can lower the second floor to make it more useable.  I don't have a saw so probably not going to happen unless I use my trusty foam board.    
  15. What's everyone working on?

    I've started working on my Country Store.  I have mainly been staining trims.  I don't usually use stain because the fumes give me a headache but I wanted that nice country look.  It got warm enough to open the doors and work out in the garage so I don't have the fumes inside.  I am glad I finally started a project my work area was way too clean!!
