  1. Arch light for worktable

    Somewhere, under the rainbow...From the thumbnail. it reminds be of Emerald City for some reason. Very ingenious idea on your part. I keep going back to it and  thinking I need one of these. You might have handy little item, that other people might be interested in!
  2. Inheriting an incomplete house

    Welcome Robert! I suspect your spouse may secretly want a dollhouse for herself?  Why not cherish the houses as family heirlooms once they are completed. You can always build a third one for the other daughter. Have you identified the house models yet? and do they have all of their pieces? I think I would probably give the models you have a go,  but knowing which model you have and how complete it is would let the other members and I give you a more sensible answer.
  3. Bargain Idea for Workbench Light

    Very Clever! No shadows to boot, awesome.

    Wow, I didn't know they made a Pee Wee action figure. Did you make his fabric jacket, or is he just missing his pants?
  7. What are you up to today? This week?

      Very sobering indeed! My husband had an accident using mini handheld circular saw. He is a professional cabinet maker. The thing is, he hated the saw because it had a terrible kick on it, and he didn't pay attention to his intuition. He cut his thumb down the middle. He now has a 'Franken Finger" and his nail grows at two different speeds. He was lucky, and I am happy you were too!
  8. Greetings

    Welcome Cheryl...I like @Sable idea of starting out small. I just wanted to suggest Greenleaf's Orchid dollhouse. They sell it at Hobby Lobby. and with the 40% off coupon, it is a great deal. Plus, it is a little more challenging with out being overwhelming.  Then again @havanahollyhas made a great point about finding a house that calls to you....Unfortunately, they all start calling to you and then you are emmeshed in this wonderful hobby!

  14. Fairy house in snow

    Very cool! I'm glad the fairies have a nice snug place to hibernate for the winter.

    I think Emily  @fov posted this already, or maybe it is because I read about these on her blog.....I just love it. I want to get my mini rake out and clean it up. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dollhouse-Miniatures-English-Cottage-1-2-1-scale/202525335326?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908131621%26meid%3Dac6bac089851464f94bbc304ebbe6e3a%26pid%3D100678%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D183343115771%26itm%3D202525335326&_trksid=p2481888.c100678.m3607&_trkparms=pageci%3A762b3670-fa49-11e8-84f2-74dbd180b07c%7Cparentrq%3A89d08d9b1670ac807286d5b2fff702d1%7Ciid%3A1
