  • Interests Yes, I am crazy about dachshunds! I love the breed. I've raised them for over 33 years and currently have a long-haired male named Shilo. He'll be 12 on Aug. 5th and he is still just like a puppy! He is slim, trim and terribly handsome!! He will play fetch anytime of the day or night and he is such a sweetie. Loves walks, or course, and ignores all of this neighbor dogs; such a gentleman. I hope he lives forever!!<br />And, of course, dollhouses are my passion and my main hobby. I built almost 3, (not counting the ones I have made this year and last year) hubby made one and I bought one already made. I finished re-doing my huge dollhouse (the one with the unknown name). The one side was becoming loose, so I took it all apart and started from day one.

    I never had crown moulding in any of my other dollhouses, but this one has it in the bedroom, bath and livingroom. I added my own touch to the fireplace; gave it some depth with spackle on it.

  9. Porcelain Doll

    No, she hasn't any markings at all; I thought it was quite weird, too. I just thought she was unusual with the blue tinted face. Thanks for the feedback tho, Ladies! Barb

  13. Porcelain Doll

    I bought this doll at Macy's in St.Paul, Mn in 1982; she is like 16" tall and dressed in a sailor type dress, straw hat and pantaloons; very cute! This doll porcelain face is a light blue...never saw another one like it. I have searched all over for a value on this doll, but can't even find one that has a blue porcelain face. Any ideas?
  14. flea market junkies

    I love rummage sales, but as I get older, nothing much interests me there anymore, so I get stuff for the grandkids. I loved watching the show "Cash In the Attic" on HGTV and "Antigue Roadshow" on PBS. Alot of this stuff they have they find at sales or on curbs. Lucky for them!!
