  1. Time Out

    Mike I will keep you in my thoughts and send you all the healthy, healing energy you need.   May your indomitable spirit see you through.
  2. Wedgewood.jpg

    I printed the badge on glossy photo paper then cut some mat board a teeny bit bigger.  I covered the mat board with that shiny silver plumbing tape (at least I think that it what it is) and then mounted the photo paper on top.  It does give it some depth.  I used the same silver tape for the griddle.  You will note my real griddle is not that shiny   The doors do not work.  I've decided, for my own sanity, that I'm not going for true realism.  I was reading one of Kris' (of 1InchMinis blog...) tutorials where she said that she wouldn't have her appliances hanging open in real life so why should the mini?  Ha!  I'm paraphrasing but it's my new philosophy.
  3. Wedgewood.jpg

    I did.  It's made out of bass wood and layers and layers of paint.  The knobs I made out of Fimo clay.  I just cut out circles and made each one with one circle for the base and a half circle for the part you grasp.  The silver is alcohol ink.   I have a life size Wedgewood in my kitchen that I just love.  My miniature kitchen needed one too

    Your work is always so inspiring.

    Little Wedgewood stove.  Not exactly accurate but works for me. I haven't had a chance to work on ANYTHING lately.  Stupid work is cutting into my fun time...
  6. Bead Cage Light

    Oh wow!  That is so lovely!
  7. Ebay, Etsy & Craig's List Links

    I love the details of this too - especially the wallpaper.  When I see things like this I like to imagine who it was originally purchased for.  
  8. Replacing windows on the Beacon Hill

    Thank you Mike - I may take you up on that if I can't order the replacement sheet.  
  9. Now what to do with the interior

    I can't wait to see what you do with the interior.  I love me some Steampunk.  
  10. Replacing windows on the Beacon Hill

    Thanks everyone.  I tried a practice one on a some acetate by just drawing on the lines (tracing the original) and my lines are so wobbly!  It's a good thing I'm not a surgeon.   I'm going to hold out for the replacement sheets but if that doesn't pan out I may give the nail art or the auto striping tape.  I do want to keep some of that dimension. Edited to add:  One of the reasons I want to replace them (other than the fact they are kind of groady looking) is it will make painting the house ever so much easier if I don't have to painstakingly tape of each window inside and out.  
  11. ...or more specifically - replacing the plastic/acetate inserts.   Does anyone have a DIY method for getting the crisp printed mullions?  Just replacing the windows would be easy enough - I can use plain acetate sheets and cut out the appropriate shape but I really don't want to lose the charm of the mullions.   I have reached out to Greenleaf customer service to see if they self replacement window plastic sheets, but, supposing they don't - Has anyone tried or heard of anyone replacing the windows on the Beacon Hill or any other house for that matter?

  15. What's everyone working on?

    I was inspired by Jodi.  Ignore the cat pan.  It can't be helped.  And the odd paint job - the previous owner used this room as a nursery and I still haven't gotten around to painting after four years....
