  1. SewMini's Casa del Paó d'Or

    Updated

    I finally decided after years of loving miniatures to build a dollhouse for myself. I'm bashing together an Orchid kit and a Primrose kit. My home's name is Casa del Paó d'Or which means House of the Golden Peacock. Here's the Story:
    My home owner, Gabrielle, is a free spirit who lives in the mountains outside of  Barcelona near Argentona and Mataró.  She is an American born woman in her late 60s who sadly lost her Spanish born husband, Mateo, few years ago and is now on her own. He was from Madrid and thats where they settled for many years. He inherited this house from an uncle and they renovated it to be their vacation spot. She would often come here by herself to get away when her husband was away on business. 
    After her husband passed, she moved to the mountains permanently. She always loved Barcelona and this place was close enough for her to get to the city for fun but far enough from the towns in the valleys that she has privacy and quiet. Its warm in the afternoons and cool in the mornings and evening; just how she likes it. 
    She still fumbles with the Catalan language but tries hard. She's much better with her Spanish. The old woman down the hill has taken a shine to her and is teaching her how to crochet lace. Her name is Margareda and she can still make a delicious fideuá (Catalan paella) despite having a harder time getting around these days.
    Gabrielle loves to cook and paint. She always has a big glass of Spanish wine in her hand and she keeps a bowl of olives close by at all times to snack on. Her first floor is for entertaining friends who make the trek to see her. She loves when they visit but loves her quiet life when they're not there too. The second floor is her respite from the world. A place for her to crawl into bed with a favorite book and her devoted hound dog, Freddi. Maybe some day, I'll build her outside terrace with the bare bulb string lights hanging from a pergola thats draped with wisteria. The perfect place to watch the sun set just past the mountains as a warm breeze floats by on its way out to the sea.
    She says your are all welcome to stop by but do bring some cheese and jamon. She's almost out!

  2. 1:6 Victorian Townhouse Rehab

    Updated

    • 40 images
    • 22 comments
    A house I got free(thank goodness) due to the amount of work involved in "fixing" it. Basically from what I got from the original owner -- their kids were basically both at fault for tearing it to pieces, breaking the windows and doors out, and ripping out the chandeliers. I was asked not to have electrical in it for the little girl it's going to, but to please do it like I would if it were going to be one of my own. Mom apparently wants to replace some of her plastic dollhouses with more that are able to be grown with and respected by the rest of the family, as apparently the little girl is already quite enamored with minis and protects them from the rest of the family. 

    Hoping this house when I'm done will truly fill the spot that her mom is hoping for!

  5. 1/6 scale house design

    Updated

    • 441 images
    • 1384 comments
    Working on a 1/6 scale stacking design, with the elements I love from Salisbury house in Des Moines IA, Coheeries Mansion from A Winters Tale movie, Reign series Castle interiors, Skyfall home with the construction principals from my JP Morgan 1/6 scale dollhouse and other dollhouses. I will build the windows my self, since they will be various and large, the largest windows 20in x 15in [some bump out style ] My husband made me promise no construction will begin until my design layout on all floors is complete. Its an ambitious project yet in my mind I am coming up with a simplified method that will be very workable

    I got this little shadowbox off eBay as a cheap way to get wood to build another room for my Bramble cottage. How was I to know the largest piece of wood was only 1/4" thick?
    So, this was turned into a little apartment.

    My Beacon Hill 1:12 dollhouse, started in 2017. This is my first larger scale project, the Second Empire style was always a personal favorite of mine from the Victorian period architecture, I will be drawing a lot of inspiration from houses of that era.

    I've started the RGT Alison Jr, which seems to want to be French Colonial... I think. I promised some friends who are looking forward to bidding on the house at the xmas faire that it would have a Disney theme. Hmmm.... sometimes the house just morphs into its own story.

    While I began to create building for the love of Barbie, the creativity of building room boxes, 1:12 and 1:6 scale dioramas, furniture, dioramas and dollhouses has become my motivation.  I thank everyone here including but not limited to both 1:6 and 1:12 (and smaller scale) artists who have inspired me to keep creating and growing.  I am so happy to be included in this miniature building community.

    This dollhouse was made for my granddaughter.  She found my daughters old dollhouse in the attic and I thought I will make her one.  Very plain, but now I want to decorate the inside, now that I know what I am doing.  But I already have 2 on the go and one more coming in the mail lol.

    Built from the 2009 Spring Fling kit and inspired by Jen's (Intrinsicat) Loganberry Mill.
    I will keep the full scale aspect and make this more of a fantasy build in the vein of Roland's Retreat.  This will also be a mill rehab with most of the inner workings of a proper mill long gone and replaced with the cozy decor of its current resident, Gustav, who is an otter with a thirst for knowledge and culture.

  13. My McKinley

    I was lucky enough to find this beautiful McKinley and it came with a lot of furniture and accessories.  It needs rehabbing.  It was put together with hot glue.  Why do the dollhouse companies tell you to use hot glue?  It is terrible to remove and after time hardens and your house falls apart.  So I will be scraping glue off of all the pieces and then putting it back together.  I am excited to take on this new project.

    This is my first build from a kit.  I wanted to make a witch house with all things spooky.  I love Halloween.  This witch has potions and spell books.  It was alot of fun, the small house kind of limited me as far as furnishings.
