  1. Lamps from scratch

    Holly, they were from MiniEtchers as well. I love her Eastlake collection. There were both 1:24 arm chair and side chairs: https://www.minietchers.com/store/p94/Eastlake_Dining_Arm_Chair.html Cynthia, if you want 3D printed lamp shades/harps to go with your vases, I am pretty sure that Shellie at Minietchers can custom print you some. My lamps from her have both round and square shade styles. Just email her from her website.
  2. Lamps from scratch

    I did this but used kits from MiniEtchers. A half-scale example is below (more in my Gallery). Depending on what your mini vases are made of, you could make a hole in the bottom to thread through LED lights like mine. Mine are then plugged into a coin battery (hidden) with a little switch. The LED lights/switches/battery all come from Evan Designs.
  3. What would be your dream dollhouse?

    Probably the real-life inspiration for Versailles: Vaux-le-Vicomte using Lawbre French Country dollhouse (dare I say it) bashed into it:

    Don’t hate me for throwing another in the mix...but if you want three stories: There are some cool (but pricier) options here: www.petworthminiatures.com
  5. Curiosity about 1/2" scale

    For the office, it is attached under the desk (the desk itself was sealed up long ago). For the dining room, there is a small rectangle of wood glued behind the little Eastlake side table...that is where the battery is. For the spare room (in my gallery), it is in the hutch. For the small bedroom (in my gallery), it is behind the vanity. I needed to make the tiny switch and battery holder accessible but hidden. I have the rest of the house wired with ambient LED lighting that is hardwired through the house as I built it. But these lights were a later addition after the house was complete.
  6. Curiosity about 1/2" scale

    Handmade lights installed! 1:24 lights are hard to come by and with limited selection so I highly recommend trying this out. It was also super economical to use 3D printed lamp bases and LED lights. There are also now super small batteries so you can hide them easier (I challenge you to find where I hid mine!). Here are a couple of installations - see my 1:24 Victorian Townhouse gallery for more.

    WOW WOW WOW!!! Beautiful!
  13. 1/144 Northeastern scale kits collection

    I bought this Northeastern Scale Models 1:144 Beacon Hill kit when they were closing shop a few years ago. I didn't realize what a deal I got. I always wanted to build my very own Beacon Hill and knew this was probably as close as I would get! If I had known that these kits were so good (everything was made of wood - all different thicknesses and types - such good quality), I would have bought more.

    From the album Little Projects

    I couldn't resist tricking out the inside...1:48 wallpaper surprisingly works!
