Finally finished my Sagamore Hill Library room box
Finally finished the Sagamore Hill Library room box in half scale. It took 16 months, which was a little longer than the year I predicted at the outset. For my final set of pictures, I included some comparison shots with the real room.

Maison Ginny — Red Cottage Miniatures Hill View
Yesterday was an abundance of minis! It really doesn’t get any better than that, just sayin'.
Not only did I get the wonderful handbag and book from Deborah (Debsrand56), I also got the new kit I’d ordered from Shannon at Red Cottage Miniatures (shannonc60). So I dove right in and started dry fitting.
Half Scale Greenleaf Tennyson
Last year I difficult as I dealt with breast cancer diagnosis, surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. I had lost myself for many years to illness but I am different now. I want to try to get back into what I liked to do. I am going to start with this little Tenny. I have to try to coax my muse out from under the floor boards so we can start to get some ideas. First step, clean off the table.
Did I Mess Up? I sanded: Oh, NO!
I've been reading that a person should not sand before painting with at least a primer. But my half scale RGT Front-opening Country Victorian arrived so rough and I was getting splinters from handling it. Besides I heard that Brown paper can be used to sand a dollhouse and my kit arrived covered in the stuff. I thought it would be the best to kill two birds with one stone and I used the brown paper to sand it down.
Some pieces are still a little tougher than I would have liked, but I just saw the recommendation that a person not sand until after painting a first coat.
Did I ruin my kit?
So concerned! Thank you!
