  1. Ebay, Etsy & Craig's List Links

    I think his work is exceptional in terms of historical elements. He is able to not cram a dollhouse full of stuff to keep the perspective. When I think what the asking price on ebay for some houses are... http://www.historicdollhouses.com/   Link shows some of his other work.
  2. Do all Bespaq pieces have a sticker?

    Most of the Bespaq furniture I've purchased had an oval sticker with the name on the bottom side. However they seem to dry out and fall off.
  3. What are you up to today? This week?

    I once found about the same thing under a daughter's bed. The spaghetti had green fuzz on the top! Today, she is a great housekeeper.
  4. Can you post pictures of yours?

    This is a fun house to build. Nice kit. Made this for an auction. The name is Cheryl's Place, not Charyles Place.   https://www.ebay.com/itm/The-House-That-Jack-Built-Charyles-Place-Dollhouse-Unfinished-Birch-Wood-Sanded/122795635837?epid=27008819983&hash=item1c9730b47d:g:I

    I made Cheryl's Place by House That Jack Built. Wonderful kit and wood.
  9. I took advantage of Miniatures.com sale and purchased turntables!
  10. Stuck on door color

    Could you pick a color from one of the bricks in the chimney?
  11. Meet my special family

    I found that in adopting rescue beagles, I couldn't go without insurance if I wanted to be able to provide all that they needed. Our 1st, little Abbie developed a tumor in a blood vessel. That set us back! With our second, Maggie Mae, she developed renal disease after 6 mos. Every claim paid by insurance. Our third little beagle Annie was found to have thyroid cancer on routine exam. She has had all testing, surgery and starts chemo Wednesday. Again insurance covering claims. (Surgery alone $4,000). Claims were covered because they did not have these conditions as pre existing. Totally depends on one's situation. With rescue dogs, their history is generally not known.
  12. Am I being too picky???

    I would  at least call their customer service.
  13. Am I being too picky???

    Unless I purchased it knowing it had defects, I find the condition of the stairs terrible. If sellers get away with this, they will keep doing it. If you bought these as stairs in good or new condition, they certainly are not. I would definitely contact seller to see what options he offers.
  14. Meet my special family

    Here is Annie, my third rescue beagle. She reminded me of Grandpa Munster on the Adam's Family! Today I pick her up at the hospital following the removal of her R thyroid lobe and tumor, most likely malignant. The path report will tell a lot.

    I also sent her a message with a link to a house selling for $750. I did receive a reply back. "Thank you for your interest. Unfortunately I do not have the certifications on the doll house, but have owned it for 33 years. While it is similar to the DuraCraft model, it is different in some of the details. Another interested party had emailed about it being "unfinished". It was a delibrate choice to just varnish the wood vs painting it. Also, there is a considerable number of furniture pieces and rugs that are not shown in the picture. I am most willing to accept a reasonable offer, as I am moving and cannot take it with me. Again, thank you for your interest" I don't think there is anything to convince her otherwise.
