My wonderful bf found a dollhouse at Goodwill one day for $4.99. When i walked into the house that day after work, this beauty was waiting for me on the table. It's a tudor style, and I knew instantly it was going to be a Harry Potter-inspired house. I am in the process now of transforming it into a wizard shop, like one would find in Diagon Alley.
Re-build of partially constructed Pierce. First dollhouse since 1982! Dollhouse partially assembled with glue gun and wood putty. Porch floor was scored for floor board look and painted grey. Musty, dusty house that had been stored in a basement. At least it is dry!
1:48-scale Hawaiian house circa late 1940's on Oahu where my parents lived during the War while my father worked as a welder in the shipyard at Pearl Harbor. That's my father's photo wearing a grass skirt on top of the tall cabinet in the bedroom. The little Hawaiian girl down on the grass in front is made my Ethel Hicks. The little outrigger canoe was actually a keychain that a friend in Hawaii sent me months ago. This measures about 13" wide at the base, 9" deep and 12" tall
The Pepperwood Farm house was hand-made from plans in the mid-1970's by a father for his young daughter. The house lived thru 2 generations of the family before it finally came to rest in storage. The family had a recent move and it became clear that although the house had been much-loved, it was time for it to go. The owner donated the house to me in 2013. Once rehab is finished, it will be donated to a local benefit auction or charity so that another generation (or two) may love it.
A "quick" build for me. Doing just a little bashing by upgrading the windows and door. I am adding the stained glass window I purchased off eBay some time ago. I am also adding a small 'add on" bathroom to the back of the house.
