  1. decisions, decisions...

    i do like that website but i prefer my dollhouses to be front opening rather than the back being open. not sure how easy that would be to change them. but thanks for the idea
  2. decisions, decisions...

    thanks i will try. i know i am overthinking it. just with research for the novel i wanted to have a clear idea about how the shop looks and an interesting history. but i will relax and let it come as naturally as it can

    lol i wish it wasn't mine. I thought it would be easy until ideas came at me! 
  4. decisions, decisions...

    Yeah i am actually planning this in much more detail than i would normally do! much smaller scale and once i start i can't easy change things so it needs to be clear.  The story and my imagination will for sure help me make a decision.  If it not's screaming "Buy me! i will probably be at the stage of "I need this!"  "I have to have it!"

    Hi everyone. Planning a project to begin early December as I will be participating in National Writing Month in November but am planning on going to a miniatures fair at the end. I am planning on picking up things for the project while I am there. I am planning a story about the bookstore and it is set in a quaint English village. The idea i am working with right now is that it either started off a part of a french chateau that had burned down and the lord of the area had found it and brought bricks and doorways back. I just don't know if it would look wrong in an english village. My other thought was that it had been an English Folly that had been relocated from the grounds of a manor house to the village and turned into a store.  I had thought that the owner could live on the upper floors. But now i am in love with a cottage that they could live in. The owner will be a writer.  And then as Audrey Hepburn is my idol and I love Funny Face i thought i could sorta make the bookstore look like the one in the movie. With a reading room on a  mezzanine or second floor.   http://blog.paperblanks.com/2013/04/movie-bookshops-funny-face/    But I can't seem to decide.  Originally I was going to choose this one  https://www.petitepropertiesltd.com/la-belle-boutique-1/48th.html  as my bookstore. This would be the old chateau and my first instinct was "I love it!" But the more I look at it the more i question. It would be hard to make it look Audrey. I could remove the shutters and balconies to look more English.  The other one would be this one  https://www.petitepropertiesltd.com/no-2-station-road-double-fronted-shop-1/48th.html This would be the old Victorian Folly. I can see so many possibilities and it could be turned to look like the store in Funny Face. But i did not have the same reaction as the first one.  This is the cottage that I will be doing probably as the writer's house if i end up doing the second floor as a reading nook.  https://www.petitepropertiesltd.com/august-cottage.html Or I may make it a tearoom.  Any help would be appreciated   Struggling so much to decide as I like them both but only room for one. 
  6. hi everyone *waves*  it's been a few years since i was last here. i was in the process of renovating my childhood doll house. But then things changed. life got busy with work and then i moved to Canada for several years.  So miniatures took a back seat but i never forgot about it.  i am now back living with my parents yet again after moving back home from abroad. i am currently unemployed but doing the job search thing. So i may begin working again on my 1:12th georgian manor or i may do something new.  i don't have a lot of space so 1:48th is looking appealing. A few have caught my eye. i have ideas for at least two projects. So we will give it some thought.

    I'm not the youngest on here but I'm 28. At my miniatures group I'm the youngest by far and they like having me there, discovering the hobby.  Enjoyed the articles :)

    I finally made it to my nearby miniatures group. Had a lot of fun and semi-made a deck chair. Have a lot to learn! But definitely worth it.

    Thanks for the comments the fireplaces are by Sussex Crafts. I have another one made by them so have three for the dh!   Miniaddicted- the ice skates and the masks are my favourite things I have for the house.
