  6. Working the background of the tapestry, almost half done. Dinner was a lovely pork roast with rice. Had the doctor for a regular checkup. Good news! I lost another 7 lbs, they tell me.

  8. Don't just look at dollhouses. Model railroad builders do things like this for their scale buildings so you might want to ask in their forums or look in Model Railroad books and magazines also.

  12. We are happy to see such an interest in the beautiful houses built by Victorian Times Miniatures while it was based in the Pacific Northwest. To set the record straight - my husband Clell Boyce started his dollhouse business in the late 70’s early 80’s - American Victorians, later to become known as Victorian Times Miniatures. We lived (and still do) in Vancouver Washington across the river from Portland, OR. Over the years Clell designed and sold hundreds of dollhouse shells and finished houses. He first sold through 'Miniature House' a Portland dollhouse store owned and operated by Jerry Le

  14. Thanks! Your ideas inspired me to wrap a sliver a sandpaper around one of my clay modeling tools and tape it in place. I used the spade shaped one. Worked like a charm!

  16. I have been incredibly lucky and blessed that I have acquired quite a collection... a custom built Beacon Hill, a Garfield, a Willowcrest, a Lily, Brimbles’ Mechantile, The Lawbre Glen Cove Villa (my favorite, along with my Beacon Hill) The Lawbre Shadowcliff, The Lawbre French Country House, plus an original Elliot Bay house by Ron Clanton. Plus, I have three Jubilee English shoppes.I must admit though, the only house I really really want to put the finishing touch to my collection is...drumroll please...The Grosvenor!!! But its incredibly hard to find here in the United States. Island-Sha

  18. Absolutely. One of the surfaces I used was a previously white-painted piece of Masonite. Anything white works great.

  24. From the album: Lighthouse Keepers House

    The kitchen is from ELF Miniatures. I used their 1950's base unit kits as well as the wall unit kits. The stove and refrigerator also came from ELF. I only had to modify one base unit and one hanging wall unit to get a perfect fit. The floor and walls are from, well, I can't remember, I'll have to look that up tomorrow. Stay tuned. OK, it is a product from Spain. I got it online, probably ebay. It came in a package with three 3 wallpapers (16 1/3" by 9 1/2") and 1 floor (16 1/3" by 12 1/2"). Enough for one room, even one much bigger than my small kitchen (7 1/2" wide by 12" deep).

  27. They're referring to load bearing joints in a real life house, not the minimal weight of a doll house. This glue should be fine.

  28. Hi Everybody. I am a retired New Englander. A year or so ago my interest in model railroading, and a collaboration of some years with DkDreamweaver building gingerbread houses, expanded in a direction I never anticipated. DKDreamweaver, also a retired New Englander, is a crafter of many years. She mentioned she always wanted to try to build a dollhouse, but never had the opportunity. We decided to see if our interests could be applied to building one. We lurked in the forums for some months learning what we could about choosing a house, building, electrifying, and landscaping.

  29. I ended up going with paper egg cartons for the bricks, wall joint compound for the mortar, a wash of stain (wood stain) to add some age and take the edge off of the bright white mortar, and acrylic craft paint to shade things. I sealed it all with matte Modge Podge. This is my final result - the fireplace for the Aster cottage I’m building.

  32. I did exactly that in my Artply Barrington! However - it was to hide wiring, not to be an actual closet. And I kinda like them stained like that, Lips!
