More cat toys--you can never have enough. The art work is excellent, particularly the larger piece on the right.   And is that a Brae pillow I spy?  I have been coveting that one, but she doesn't do half scale.

HA!  Yes that IS a Brae pillow.  I already thanked her.  I actually got two sets of them - the black and white and then the multi-colored ones.  She's always been such an inspiration so I was happy to come across her pillows on ETSY.  Thank you for all your kind thoughts.

I am getting ready to build this house.  I'm new so I'm sort of clueless but I was wondering what scale furniture you have?   The home kit is 1:12 but I have a bunch of 1:16 scale furniture that I would love to use in mine and I'm wondering if that size will look okay in this house?   If so, I plan on using all 1:16 scale items.   Thank you for your help!   I love your house and how much detail you put into everything!

  Hi and welcome to this mini insanity!  You're going to have SO much fun!  I built the furniture to go in this and it was 1:12 scale.  But as you'll see the house doesn't have a lot of room in it and I think its a great idea to see if your 1:16-scale pieces would work.  I don't have that house anymore but let me go shove a few pieces of my own 1:16-scale pieces into one of my 1:12 houses to see..  Well the windows would wind up being a little bit too high but you can camouflage that with draperies.  BUT.. the doors!  I'm thinking that they're so tall that it might look funny.  But hey - if you haven't invested in the 1:12-scale furniture already, I'd give using the 1:16-scale a try.  I LOVE the 1:16 scale. And its hard to find pieces in that scale that aren't plastic..  So to answer your question I did go with 1:12 scale.  I hope this will be a grand adventure for you.  Please contact me if you need help.  Wish you lived 'around the corner'...  Pat

By the way - have you checked out Elf Miniatures?  They have some incredible 1:16-scale pieces.  I copied their modern kitchen unit for my Brinca Dada 'Emerson' house.  But I think most of Elf's things are for more modern houses...

I was just thinking - if this is your first dollhouse kit that you're building you might want to pay attention to the suggestions the other 'pros' on Greenleaf can give you.  When I was brand new, building my very first dollhouse from a kit about 4 years ago, I happened on the Greenleaf site when I got stumped with adding lighting.  And a few different members had great suggestions for me.  But one of the most important is NOT to use hot glue.  I would've loved to be able to use it but I'm glad I listened to their warnings.  From what I've heard the ONLY thing that hot glue works fine on is the shingles.  Have blue painter's tape handy - you're going to need lots of it.  I can remember my 'construction zone' (the formal dining room) with blue painters tape hanging from the blinds so I could grab pieces of it easily.
