  1. From the album: Punch Needle

    This is the front side, as far as I've gotten. Who knew punch needle was this much fun?

    The scale of the picture is a bit large, but right now it is a welcome mat for the Fairy House.

  4. How about Cinderella and her two wicked stepsisters? Hers could be the fairy tale cottage and the other two kind of creepy in different ways.... Whatever you do with them they will be beautiful!

  5. Gayle don't be afraid everyone's got their own pace. My idea was just as loud as yours but my hatred of cutting and painting detail trim put me behind a couple weeks because I just kept putting it off. I'm waiting on an order from Germany. I've got an accessory arriving today from California too. My fridge is empty and I'm living off pb&j but my fling is coming together nicely... lol Tonight I'm going to paper and install my ____________ for the _________. After that I can start working on the ___________. Then I can start working on the __________!

  6. Do I dare tell everyone that mine is almost finished? The house told me what it wanted to be before I ever purchased it and since its arrival, it's practically put itself together.

  8. If you want hardwood floors, you can score lines in the kit floor (with the back of a utility knife), then stain. Find wallpaper at Hobby Builders Supply or other on-line miniature shops, but really, scrapbook paper, wrapping paper, or cloth (think fat quarters from quilt shops) all work well as wall coverings.

  10. Picked up some cute little additions for my stash over the weekend. Found the sofa that I need for the Bronte House, along with 3 new hens for the chicken coop area. Also found a pot belly stove, a copper-topped wooden table that I think I'll be able to use in a garden shed, can't wait to get my hands on the table to try my hand at aging the copper for that nice green finish. Also got a nice little lidded basket - I'm thinking kittens coming out of it if I can find some, and 3 ladderback chairs that I got for a steal. All-in-all a pretty good weekend of shopping.

  12. I order most of my miniature supplies at www.miniatures.com. They sell everything there but my favorite flooring of all, is the Greenleaf vinyl wood look flooring. It is so pretty once its on and very realistic looking. Best thing about it is that its already the perfect color stain color, texture and shiny finish. Plus its economical and easy to install, especially around nooks and crannies. No special tools required. You can buy that at www.shop.greenleafdollhouses.com.

  13. Hip, Hip, Hooray !!!! I just got six boxes of supplies from all over the place. Okay, so 2 of them were really just in envelopes but anyhoo they count as supplies in my book. Okay again, so a bunch of them are really Twinkles supplies but that still counts as a Hip, Hip, Hooray, right? The ones I need to have before I make my major cuts have NOT come of course so I'm still sitting at a standstill with that part. The say they are on the way but there is no tracking for the ones from China that I can figure out anyhow. I just keep busy making the accessories and detail stuff and drawing up more ideas. Twinkle made great progress today on hers. She hasn't had much time up until now with all the homework and final exams and all. Now that she is done school, she has jumped right in and made up for some lost time. Hers is absolutely adorable.

  14. From the album: Micro Georgian Townhouse

    After doing some research on these houses, I decided I wanted a larger room for the Entertainment Room - not to be confused with the Drawing Room or the Parlor. It was usually on the second floor. So by removing one wall, I can make a room big enough for a party. And I found some wonderful train-people to be at that party! Pictures of them are in my Greenleaf blog

  22. Great job! I've found my easy cutter works best in certain spots on the blade. For really stubborn sticks, I flip it over halfway through and go at it from the other side. Isn't it amazing how much easier it is to use this than a miter saw?? Oooof.

  26. I was in a bad accident 12 years ago. I was freshly showered, my apartment was clean, my underwear matched.........when I got to where I could understand the enormity of what happened the last time I'd had a shower and whether I left the house clean or not meant nothing. Since the accident people don't usually understand why I am so different. And me? I understand more than ever. One thing is that dollhouses have helped me more than counselors. When you have a reason to feel sad, you have a reason. You can't rationalize it away. But an escape into miniland, now you're talkin!

  29. Isn't it interesting what we learn when we are faced with life and death or serious loss of some nature. We lost everything in a fire a long time ago and that changed us tremendously. We realized what we "didn't" need. We learned that family and friends were absolutely everything one needs in life.

  30. Kat, I've been hauled off to the hospital by 911 a few times - once with a heart attack and a few times with terrible fevers - and a few times was unbathed and felt filthy, the house a disaster, and I too have had a period start during being poked and prodded in an ER (think there's a pattern there LOL?), and yeah, it really does put what's REALLY important into perspective. A little grubbiness just ain't that important when it's life and death.....

  38. I know this isn't your Crestview model but my Sweetheart is a Dura-Craft and it has the same wood thickness as GL too. I didn't change out the windows or doors but I made curved casings for the ones that didn't come with it. It also came with beautiful channel molding that finishes the backside edges nicely. I love my little Sweetheart. We have remodeled it twice and it's still going strong.

  39. Ok, thanks for letting me know. I guess if you wanted to add houseworks windows you would have to build up the layer of wood around the window somehow,with foamcore I guess. I have one solid idea, I want the kitchen side window to become a screen door with steps leading down into an enclosed "breakfast/conservatory room" garden area. Ive always wanted to try an attached conservatory:)

  41. I like that idea Selkie, at our local shop there is a medieval town set up, it's really neat. Morgan I can't wait to see this bohemian fairy castle of yours:) One thing I can say I've always wanted to have a house that is unapologeticly pink...a painted lady in 5 shades of pink from blush to magenta. I think that would be really cool, not "little girl" looking but more painted lady looking. I really like the sort of farmhouse looking front porch, combined with the tower on this house. I think it calls for a lot of new exterior laser trim and the stairs will have to b taken out to apply wallpaper etc. I hope they aren't glued in.
