I love this house and I'd be throwing a 2 year old tantrum about it if it was cheaper...I love it. I wouldn't go $5000+, but I'd pay plenty for it, but surely never what the seller thinks it is worth. Of course it IS priceless to me. That's the trouble with pricing these things, lol.  I hope it finds a good home.

I love that house too and it has some nice high end furnishings too. But I agree, the price is a little steep.

Look behind the red stained sofa. At the dolls. The haunted dolls. They aren't for sale, they are just there to steal your soul. lol.

BWAHAHAA! Oh my yes. My mother had a collection of antique dolls. I know most people like those things but they just creep me right out. Little black beady eyes waiting for you to fall asleep. "My name is Talky Tina, and I'm going to kiiilll you...."

It looks like a sponging effect.

You can do stippling to get that effect as well

Lol - if you start at the beginning of those photos and page thru them the dolls suddenly disappear!! It's kinda jarring!

I know these are a lot of work, and they're cheap and from China, but I find this one very cute:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/DIY-Toy-Cabin-Rose-Garden-Tea-House-Handmade-Architectural-Model-Wooden-Villa/323830994955

I've had the Travel Trailer (adorable) and the Kitchen (the greenhouse like kitchen) and they were not high-end, but were quite well done. And can be enhanced to be very charming.

I worry this one has too much fiddly stuff. They make a bookstore kit too...soooooo many books. I do like the idea of a tiny fiddly tea room, tho.

That wicker couch is adorable, I wonder how good the instructions are for making it. It looks like a fun project for summer.

Looks like Greenleaf is branching out into a different scale.:bigwink: Has anyone else seen listing on eBay for Greenleaf furniture that clearly is something else?

The listing is no longer there; the photo shown for it is the standard stock photo for the Greenleaf bedroom set.  What did we miss?

They had pictures of real life sized sofas and chairs. When you click on the link, then click on View Original Item (on the right) and then scroll down. You'll see the original auction.

I see now.  Nope, most definitely not the Greenleaf bedroom set I have.

I guess they figured out they used the wrong photo. I saw the original. I'm sure everyone has seen things posted to the wrong categories, like full-sized dining room sets in dollhouse furniture. Some things, I think, are purposely listed in the wrong places just to get more people to see them. I can't be the only person who's sick and tired of seeing Overstock's wallpaper everywhere I go on Ebay.

This totally inspired me to try this out on some old chairs I want to redo. Adorable and antique-y looking! I will need to age the fringe.

I love the idea of a HUGE house!

Hmmm ... when I get too old to drive and don't have a car any more and rely on Uber to go visiting and get my groceries there would be enough room in the garage for something this big. :hmm: If I had a doll to live in it, she might be Tess of the D'Ubervilles. :roflmao: 

[Note to self: stay out of the sun during these scorching Georgia summer days.]

Wow, this is one big house.  8' x 10'.  Not a bad price at $4500

"Dismantle" is the perfect word. It does not appear to be designed for access. If you have to lift off the roof to access the top floor, I wonder if you have to remove the entire second floor to access the ground floor? Hinged wall panels would have worked so much better. Pretty spectacular house though!

This is a neat house. It looks like it is in an antique shop and over priced. I think it has glass windows?

Ginormous, really???, they need to see the house that I posted earlier.  That's ginormous, probably wouldn't even fit through the door of most houses.  I don't even consider the Rosedawn as ginormous!

At some point I was going to add the Simplicity (with its addition) onto my Hofco house to get all the rooms I wanted. The more I think about it and the more I think about how long it would take me to decorate all that, and taking into consideration how old I am, I'm starting to think small house now. In fact, I'm seriously thinking of cutting the Simplicity down to make a 4-room Cape Cod cottage out of it. I'm asking myself if I really need a formal dining room (no), more than 1 bedroom or bath (no), a library (no), a sunroom, an attic, or a laundry room (still thinking about it).

Of course tomorrow I'll probably be posting about how I want to add another Americana onto the Americana.

8ft x 10ft puts that in a class of its own. Titania's Palace isn't even 10-feet long. You could fit six Rosedawns into that space with room to spare.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who waffles like that. One moment I'm thinking of adding additions to a house and the next I'm considering chopping it from a 3-story to a 2-story. Sometimes adding space is just a waste and can make a house unwieldy. Speaking of adding wasted space, how funny I just replied to a comment about the Rosedawn because mine came with two of these, one for each side. Useless. Completely useless. If I can ever find them, they're going on Ebay.
