  1. Foxhall Manor: Ultimate Find!!!

    While searching for dollhouse kits locally (which includes my entire state! Woah!) I found somebody selling this already built but (a little) damaged Foxhall Manor by Real Good Toys. The shingles are broken, but terrible so they are coming off. The conservatory was painted a bright yellow so I'm going to both tone It down with some white paint, and place a very high wainscotting trim on the room. On the room It looks like spilled white paint (or maybe? glue). There are broken stairs, rails in the Grand Hall. It looks like real sized carpet was used. All I can see however is The Potential: I've got this hand crafted doll by an I.G.M.A. Artist named Eliza and this is going to be her home. I'm thinking of painting the roof black and later shingling it. The house either a dusky lavender or a dusky rose pink. Black trim. Dark grey and deep cream for accent colors. Only Artisan pieces and furniture inside this home! I cannot wait to start collecting, but I first must finish some Layaways in 1:24 scale. Already an Artisan member here has offered me a stunning rug that will have the pride of place in one of the rooms. It's going to take years, but it will be beautiful when it's finished. It needs Help and LOVE! But it is only: $40! I'm stunned. Going to hopefully pick it up next week. My friend is going to be taking me over to get it. I know that it is HUGE (it comes with the Conservatory and the two-story addition, but the staircases are missing, plus the (looking at the front) left side front-opening door. I've measured my desk: it fits! But only a foot more in length is available to work. I'm cleaning up my Craft Room this week and getting ready to bring my find home hopefully next week. I'm so THRILLED! There are Members that find these incredible Dollhouses for incredible prices, but I NEVER dreamed that I could ever be one.

  3. Next week I'm hoping my Big (Someday Soonish) Beauty will be home, and into my Craft Room ready for me to begin. First it will be sanding down that blue paint, taking a good primer to recover it or possibly a nice textured spray paint with the trim tapped off with some nice blue painting tape to protect the areas that I want to (for now) keep white. Then those shingles need to come off. Human sized carpeting is the next to go. Then some sanding that yellow Conservatory. A whitewash to help, and later tall wainscotting. Choosing between dusky lavender and a dusky rose pink for the main house exterior, and then planning which room is what for the interior. I'm going to need to contact Real Good Toys for the missing left front-opening door, as well as both staircases, the exterior trim pieces, and also the windows as well as doors. Decorating will be half the fun! I cannot wait to begin!
  4. BEST BRAND OF WALLPAPER

    Hello, my mom passed away a few years ago and I decided to finish off her dollhouse project (lol... 'finish').  She already had some wallpaper installed and others ready to be installed.   Some of the installed wallpaper is horribly discolored, brownish, fading and just plain awful.  Others are fine.   Of the uninstalled wallpaper, some of it is already faded at the edges, although the items were never in the sun.   There are other papers in mint condition.  I don't want to replace the wallpaper with something that is going to fade and discolor again but there are no brand names on any of the papers I have.  There are no dollhouse shops near me which forces me to buy online, where I cannot assess the true quality of the paper.  I'm wondering what the best brand is so I dont have this problem again.  I prefer a heavier wallpaper rather then the regular paper weight as it is easier for me to install.  Thank you for any advice!  Kris
  5. Hello there, I recently completed building a 1:12 scale dollshouse, my first attempt at such a dollshouse. I set out to utilise salvaged materials and things that were easily (and cheaply) obtainable as much as possible, so there were no prefabricated dollshouse components used. It is made to be played with so is built deliberately robust. I thought you might like to take a look, any feedback is welcome. A video of the dollshouse can be viewed on Youtube here. And an album of photos can be seen here. Thanks for taking the time to have a look, Dan Inglis.
