  1. Beautiful Crissy

    I had a Chrissy. I loved that doll! She had such beautiful red hair. She had a floppy felt hat that my dog chewed up and I was so upset.
  2. How interesting! Thanks for finding out. 
  3. It looks very similar to mine. I bought mine from ebay, but I don't remember where it came from. It would be interesting if there was someone who copied the real good toys shells. But I do think it was a kit. The window cutouts are exactly like mine, with the rounded edge; and mine are the same as the First Lady cut outs.  It looks like yours has a number stamped on it?  I wonder if anyone from Real Good Toys would know?  
  4. Shingles on hinged roof

    Your roof came out great! I did forget that my roof does not open flush, but I have a piece of dowel that I use to keep it open to view the room. I have another house done the same way, but using asphalt roofing material. The material  is thinner, and that roof opens all the way.
  5. Nice find! I wonder if Real Good Toys made a few different 1/2 scale models in the past?
  6. Shingles on hinged roof

    Oh, thank you. It doesn't get damaged. I ended the shingles at the lower part of the hinged roof, and started a new row at the upper part of the roof. There is no overlap of the shingles when you look from the side.
  7. Shingles on hinged roof

    I have two roofs with the same issue. Mine do not look perfect at all. One thing I did do was paint the hinges the same color as the shingle to minimize their appearance. You will probably always see the gap.
  8. 1:24 scale dollhouse ID

    Oh no! I hope you feel better quickly.
  9. I just saw one on ebay, but the auction ended and it sold. Could you make a fake drawer on the newer one that scale designs sells? Does that kit have the same legs?
  10. 1:24 scale dollhouse ID

    I knew I had seen it before. I have all the Nutshell News half scale issues. I hope you get it!
  11. 1:24 scale dollhouse ID

    I actually had a Bauder Pine catalog. It was just binder pages. There were no houses in mine, mostly  Bespaq furniture. I also think there was a Bauder Pine house listed on eBay a few months a ago - a smaller one than this one, but it had the same mansard roof.
  12. 1:24 scale dollhouse ID

    I think I found it! In the Nutshell News September 1986 issue. It was built by Pat Bauder and Frank Moroz of Bauder Pine. What a beautiful house!
  13. All the pieces

    I am making a half scale little briana cottage. I love how these kits are packed. Yours is going to be beautiful!
  14. That is a shame. I had been to the store many times over the years. It has to be so difficult to keep a brick and mortar store going.
  15. I have ordered from them both on eBay and their website. An item was out of stock, and they notified me right away and refunded my payment immediately.
