Pennethorne Manor ~ Remake
After rehoming all my dollhouses (including Pennethorne Manor I - remember MiniMadWoman?) and being out of minis for awhile, I have once again caught the mini bug! I brought up all my miniatures from their tomb in the basement the other day and took inventory. O how I missed my precious pieces!
I am going to build a Beacon Hill from the dollhouse kit (which is due to arrive today) with a few modifications. I am adding a basement, extending the kitchen (which will be a dining room) and the bathroom, and adding a conservatory and possibly extending the boudoir. With help from dear hubby, we built the basement over the weekend and today I was playing with flooring.
I will be posting each step of the way here, but you can also follow along on my blog https://beaconhilldollhouse.blogspot.com
The basement from left to right . . . wine cellar, butler's pantry, kitchen, sewing room.
Kitchen flooring from a vinyl tile.
Gingerbread Orchid House
Just in time for Christmas in July, I have finished building and decorating the Greenleaf Orchid as Santa's Gingerbread House. Mrs. Claus, Santa and his brother Krampus live in this house with the elves where they make toys, check the naughty and nice list, sip tea and eat cake. The house includes a study, workshop, family room and bedroom. Started building last December, now 8 months later, I was helped in making design decisions by my 4 year old daughter, who loves to play with "Gingy". We've been cranking up the music box which plays "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" and eating spice drops while playing.
Adobe dollhouse in Nevada
I received a partially-constructed dollhouse along with some other things from a craigslist ad. If anyone wants it they're welcome to it but they'd have to come pick it up. I live in Carson City, Nevada so I realize the chances are slim but thought I'd offer it here first. It appears to be this one plus there is an extra unattached room too.
New member, old project!
My name is Erin and I received the Arthur dollhouse kit when I was 11 and assembled it with my mother. That was 25 years ago! I’ve recently been inspired to get back into miniatures and I’ve decided to renovate my old dollhouse.
A lot of things have changed in twenty-five years, especially all the resources now at hand thanks to the internet.
I’m really looking forward to my “new” hobby and I’m already having a great time looking at other’s photos and getting ideas.
