  1. San Franciscan

    I found mine 2/3 constructed but with zero parts; the challenge was that the MDF is thick and hard to cut and the window box openings were too large and crooked for the Houseworks windows I bought.  I fiddled for years with refitting via poster board and gave up and hired a real life carpenter!  
  2. San Fran 555 decorating

    Hi, when I rescued my San Fran 555 it did not have windows and I did not have any parts, I bought them from Hobby Builders and got several types for architectural interest.  They did not fit the openings and I needed a carpenters help to fit them in , and like you pointed out, there were gaps inside which I hid with thin wood strips.    It turned out nicely. Hard to show you though with drapies affixed; good luck~
  3. Fireplace inspiratiom

    I have my yellow Duracraft San Fran in my sunroom/conservatory too!   Visitors love it and would not see it upstairs in a bedroom.
  4. Fireplace inspiratiom

    I love this!  Fireplace and area is simply stated but very elegant.... and, I'm wondering--- where do you work on.... and where will you permanently display this incredible masterpiece!
  5. Putting in more baseboard

    The perspective is so true, I feel like I'm touring a Country House in Europe!  Besides your dollhouse skill you surely have a photographers gift.

    One of a kind and really brought back memories of the Japanese house I lived in as a child on Island of Kyushu.  We even had the bamboo fence and a pit for our stove in middle of room!  Japanese style: perfection in simplicity.   Great job!
  7. The Lady of the House

    From the album Dura-craft San Fran Rehab

    Found this lovely vintage doll on e-bay; perfect Lady for the Yellow Victorian San Franciscan.  She's even a redhead to match her baby.  And since my kids and grandchildren are ALL redheads, Perfect!   Her name is Lady Grace

  9. Rocking Horse

    WOW!  Love ALL your rocking horses- such delightful whimsy and detail, but WHAT?  No palomino?
  10. 18th century blue shoes

    I love your work, and especially the tiny period shoes in historic shoe boxes.   Good to go for Abigail Adams herself!

    This is beyond fabulous!   I actually lived in Kyushu Japan as a child, no where near in a house this grand.   I have never seen the likes of this kit.   Kudos to you for doing an amazing creation!!!

    Your tiny trailer is darling; cozy and very well done!  I love the red plaid.

    A gorgeous dollhouse, and the color scheme is lovely and compliments your own home's décor.
  14. Pillow 5- Octopus

    Very creative!   The Octopus is delightful, as are all your pillows.
