  1. I would love to see the exhibit but I'm too far away. I'll bet she was quite a character to get to know .. I would have loved to have sat down and had a nice long conversation with her. 
  2. Hidden Treasure

    What a cool idea. I love it. :)
  3. I did it!

    I love it! I've had the quarter scale Ashley Gothic bookmarked for forever on eBay. I'm really looking forward to seeing your progress pics once you get your Jasmine. The best of luck to you. You're going to have a blast.
  4. I won a door prize!

    Thanks so much. I still can't believe I won. I guess if you live 60 years without winning a thing and suddenly do then the excitement never wears off.
  5. I won a door prize!

    Thanks. I'll have to make them the centerpiece of my dollhouse since I have no furniture yet. lol
  6. My 1st House - Beacon Hill Haunted Mansion

    Oh it looks really good! I would love to build a Beacon Hill someday. Nice job so far!
  7. I won a door prize!

    I'm so excited that I couldn't help but share. I never --and I mean, never!-- win anything but today to my utter amazement I won a door prize at the Good Sam Miniature Show in San Jose. Wow! They were made by Sylvia of The Dolls Cobbler. I bought a couple other very small priced items (chrysnbon kit, chihuahua) but most importantly got an eyeful of some seriously gorgeous miniature work. It was a great show and I was walking around with my jaw on the floor the whole time just like I did last year. Anyway, here they are, the cutest little ladies shoes in one inch scale:

    Wow ... at that price I would have bought them all too. What a deal!
  10. Help, really stuck with my Fairfield now

    I don't have that great of an imagination but my sister does. She is starting her first house and she has some funny and clever ideas that she's been playing around with. One of them is a "scene of the crime" house.  There was a woman named Frances Glessner Lee who used to build them in 1:12 scale: http://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/murder-miniature-nutshell-studies-unexplained-death-180949943/   Also, my sister was thinking maybe a hoarder house. This one is in 1:6 scale:     I've seen many pics of haunted houses, scientist's laboratories, libraries, etc., that are so much fun. And I always thought the Fairfield would make a perfect little church with its prominent tower. The possibilities are endless and the Fairfield is such a cool little house it's worth making it your own personal little place and not having to rely on pre-made furniture items. I'm really excited to see what you end up doing with it!
