  1. I'm building a 1:48 Pepperwood from Jackie's original 1:12 plans. It is slow going, but...I love it! I really liked your idea for doing a stone exterior. I am actually thinking of doing a brick exterior -

    I'm hoping it doesn't get overwhelmed with brick. 

    Let me know how your stonework is going. I will be using brickpaper...and I have to start applying it early because you have to do a lot up front in 1:48. Anyway...I am hoping it works because I don't feel like doing clapboard.

    Hope you post photos of your giant Pepperwood! I just love that house.

      Oh cool!!! I'll bet it will be adorable in 1:48!!! AWWWW. I love the idea of a brick exterior. That is a LOT of brick, but it doesn't overwhelm the real house in your picture, so I'll bet it'll be cute. I can't wait to see! Keep me posted, okay?

      I haven't had a chance to do anything with mine at all. :( Poor neglected thing. I have a full time job, and I'm trying to get ready for this miniatures show coming up in September, and it doesn't leave much time for play.

      But I will definitely post pictures once I DO get going. It won't be until after September 10th, though.



  2. The Front Window from Inside

    Hi @Emerald! It is not one of the "Streets of Shops", though I LOVE those little kits. This is a "Curiosity Shop" by Rocky Mountain Woodcrafts. It was only offered as part of a class at the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys Fall show many years ago. Though, now that you mention it, I probably COULD put a few of those "Streets of Shops" kits around it and they would all fit right in... and I have the perfect shelf. D'oh! Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting. I'm glad you like my little shop. - Wendy

  5. Dollhouses on TV and Movies

    Aww, that is just sad. I haven't watched Babe in ages, but I guess now I have to! :)
  6. Dollhouses on TV and Movies

    Oh wow! Good find, Elsbeth! I'm going to have to see if I can track this down. Thank you!!! (and yeah, those couches.... hmm.) Keep them coming, you guys! This is great! Thank you so much for playing! :)  
  7. Dollhouses on TV and Movies

    Hey @grazhina, I'll have to check that out! Thank you! Weird about the image, but we'll get it sorted. Thanks for adding to the list!
  8. Dollhouses on TV and Movies

    Keep them coming you guys!!! @Elsbeth, I did a blog entry with the first few dollhouse in TV/movies and it's here - Dollhouses in Movies and TV Part 1 of ? And that Ghost Story episode, "House of Evil" and "Secrets in the Attic: The Dollhouse Murders" are both on it! They are both available on YouTube and there are links in the blog entry. I loved them both.  That is absolutely fascinating that the "Ghost Story" house was Darren and Samantha's house too! WOW!!! Now I feel like I learned something. I love this thread. Thank you all so much! And thank you @TerriAnn for starting it! :)
  9. Before it was filled with animals...

    Thanks, Samusa. I am embarrassed to admit that this little building was the first time I ever worked with paperclay. I learned a lot on this little structure, and I still love it a lot. :)
  10. Looking Through the Front Door

    Thanks, Samusa! Originally, it was a custom potion shop. So you could come in, sit in a comfy chair, and consult with the potion-master about just exactly what you needed. It may become a potion shop again after the animals get a bigger place (there are more coming in the mail.... oops.) :)
  11. Animals on the Shelves

    Thanks, Samusa! It was originally a potion shop, and it may well go back to being one after the animal collection outgrows the space.
  12. The Front Window from Inside

    Well, the good/bad news is, she has a website. You know, so you can see all the cool things she makes. - Bridget McCarty Miniatures. We're selling at the show this year, so I'm hoping we'll be too busy at our own table to be tempted. But... you never know. :)
  13. The Front Window from Inside

    Thanks, Monica!
  14. The Front Window from Inside

    From the album The (Tiny) Glass Menagerie

    There are those birds we were peeking at through the window: a crane and a pelican. The red panda was a gift from my sweetie at a miniature show a few years ago. He's made by the incredibly talented Bridget McCarty. She's coming to the Colorado show in September.... we'll see who ends up following me home from her table this year. :)
  15. Glass Critters on the Shelves

    From the album The (Tiny) Glass Menagerie

    The giant knife is a bit of an oddball in the shop, but I love it and I don't have anywhere else to put it right now. So, it's a decoration. Not that the animals every get unruly or anything. :)
