    This is a Falcon industries Marcia Backstrom Santa. Quite affordable for the quality. I really love her sculpts/molds.
  2. Heirlooms Dollhouse Miniatures shop!

    I wonder what the market is like in Aurora - she is about 40 - 50 minutes outside of the nearest metro area. The miniatures scene is quiet (but earnest) here - I don't know how a shop can survive, but I hope she does it.

    That is great!
  4. Help me pick the Casa's bed!

    I love them all. I liked the Camille and Marguerite the best, but I also like the Gracelynn because of that rusty finish. But I like them all - what lovely beds and nice prices, too! Thanks for sharing these links! I am tempted by that white day bed for an attic scene - it seems so perfect.

    I wonder if the photos were flipped? I'm surprised they flipped the plan. I love that house plan. And $150 for all that work is a good price, but I still find the size daunting and the fact that I'd have to switch out the mint green exterior. And they skipped the window frames - which is an effort.  At least the inside is primed. I hope.

    That alpaca/Llama figure is AWESOME too!
  8. Showcase Our Miniature Finds

    The taps and the drainboard weathering are just sublime.

    I love the little pasta boxes (?) on the shelves! This looks great - I love how different this is from the standard old fashioned decor. What fun!

    A few more fun etsy things to look at: I wish this had real miniature stairs and then I would find it more compelling: https://www.etsy.com/listing/251617267/queen-anne-victorian-dollhouse-dolls Sometimes I like the all wood dollhouse exteriors: https://www.etsy.com/listing/386820398/antique-dollhouse Amsterdam house: https://www.etsy.com/listing/467747294/antique-dollhouse-amsterdam-warehouse

    A little antique house on etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing/540928111/vintage-doll-house1930s-dollhousehand It's all chippy paint and falling apart, but I like it. I don't $550 like it, but if I found it for $30, I'd love it, lol. I even like the oversized wallpaper. It is good for inspiration, but it is a bit raggedy, this house.

    It is someone's "holy grail" but certainly not everyones. Plus, if folks want modern, it seems the Brinca Dada are more elegant. I remember when this was sold by the Met or MOMA - and they even had it on sale. I passed. It IS a lot of plastic. And the people aren't that much different from the fisher price happy family dolls. It just isn't enough bang for the buck, imo. I think it was trying to be more about art/design/kids and less for a true miniaturist.  
  14. New 2017 Hallmark Stove ornament

    I had to put this in - I love this Hallmark fridge: And you can see the stove there, too. This kitchen is still unfinished all these years later, but I still love it and this house.

    The Sf area house with wonky porch is well done inside BUT it has a windowless kitchen blocking the front entry view....I need windows in my kitchens! But they sure poured a lot of love and skill and money into that house!
