A very generous member of my miniatures group gave me all three of the Houseworks "Street of Shops" kits, which I am slowly but happily putting together.

This is the first house that I worked on that began my dollhouse intrigue. It was a rehab job and still needs a few items completed, but my little girl wants to still play with it "like a kid", so the delicate stuff will have to wait until she's older. We like to throw dolls in and out of the windows.
This is one of those "Someday I'll get to that" houses. A long time ago my mom commissioned a replica of her childhood home in Denver.
Since it was right in front of me while searching for something else, I figured I'd snap a few pics of the dusty old thing. Also some screen grabs from Google Street View to show the actual house.
The 1/12th version is two rooms deep, front- and rear-opening, recreating the actual floor plan including the basement. The rear Ell addition was omitted.
I've been doing counted cross stitch (and occasionally needlepoint) since 1995. A few years ago I ran out of wall space so I started focusing on petit point instead of life sized pieces. Here are some of them.
Does anyone recognize this house? It's built from 3" high milled-in clapboard strips of wood that are almost 3/4" thick. I think it might be an old Batrie kit? I'll try to post pics as I go along.
I've nearly thrown this house out a number of times but you know how some houses speak to you? I hate to anthropomorphize a dollhouse but I swear this one whimpers, "Please save me."
