  4. You all are a terrible influence ;-)

    Oh, I love her! I'm jelly donut, for sure. She's beautiful!

    I think she does do custom orders. I just spent some time googling her email and finally found it so I think I'll contact her and see what she says! Yeah, the title of this thread is accurate. You all are a terrible influence!

    I picked up this 1:48 cuckoo clock last weekend at the southern california Tom Bishop show. The level of detail that can be obtained with laser cutting these days astounds me!

    That's funny how we start out thinking dolls are creepy and then eventually we want one. lol. I've been searching for one, too, ever since I went to the Good Sam show back in October. Cat Wingler had a few 1:48 dolls but, unfortunately, she had just sold her last victorian lady right before I got to her table so I was out of luck. If any of you know of a good source for quarter scale dolls I would love to know about them. Congratulations on your purchase, Deborah. I'm looking forward to seeing how you incorporate her into your incredible mini world. Sometimes dolls can look (creepily) amazing in dollhouses!

    This is a steal for some HOM kits:  https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/art/d/emeryville-miniature-furniture-kits/6827508381.html

    Very sad. :(
  10. I think I may have purchased a 1:48 scale fireplace from you on eBay. It's so hard to find anything with detail in this small of a scale, I was happy to have found yours. It's not finished yet but this is what I've done so far with it:

    What a great way to design a spiral staircase. I can't tell you how many hours I spent on googling info that was overly complicated. Next time I make one I'm modeling it after yours. Looking forward to seeing your finished design.

    It's very sad that yet another miniature store is closing but might be an opportunity for locals to find some good deals: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/clt/d/santa-rosa-pegs-dollhouse-is-going-out/6812889771.html I've never been there myself but it seems Emily found a few really cool buys there back in 2011:  http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/?app=forums&module=forums&controller=topic&id=29112
  15. The house I'm working on now is a 1:48 scale from Laser Dollhouse Designs and I absolutely love it. Like Emily says, there is no sanding or prep work involved which is nice for a change. I'm not sure what type of wood it is but it's light, sturdy, and good quality and I'll bet that Greenleaf uses the same type of wood or similar. My husband bought this one for me for Xmas and, you're right, it was at a steep cost (something like $170-) but I am so happy with it. Totally worth it, in my opinion.
