    The cabinets and work table are totally from scratch except for the legs. People ask if I made them. I do not have a mini lathe!

    I dabbed some purple paint on the tower just to see what it might look like with purple shingles. I also had some extra window pediments so I glued them on top of the tower windows.

  14. That dollhouse is based on a real house in San Francisco: http://landmarkhunter.com/163693-william-westerfeld-house/ Here are some more pics of the real house (album belongs to the guy who owns it): https://www.flickr.com/photos/45374266@N05/sets/72157622840793723/ In the 1970s Jim Marcus made a hand carved miniature version of this house, a limited edition of which 10 were produced: http://www.prices4antiques.com/Dollhouse-Marcus-Jim-Wood-San-Francisco-Victorian-Style-6-Rooms-Carved-Architect-D9785235.html I've also seen this one online before, which is scratch built from fo

  16. This is just wonderful! Congratulations on being published! I also wanted to let people know that I never did hear back from Gina (Wolfie) or any member of her family after I had written her a note some time back and mailed it. I only tried her phone# once but it just rang and rang and no one answered. I hope she is OK. Please have your friend in Montana drive by her home and see if she is alright. It would be so nice for her to know that you got published and one of her exquisite dolls was featured. If anyone hears from her or of her please share the news with us.

  18. It's a bookstore. In my own metafiction, the man in the movie who has the book shop leaves it to Belle. After she inherits it, she continues to run it. Although she has her own giant library in her castle, she wants to make sure all the people in her "poo provincial town" have access to books.

    Here is a better shot of the candelabra. Tomorrow I really need to finish the fireplace, the corbels are just perched there, they are not secured

  23. Hmm. I really like the potting bench idea, but I'm afraid that it would be a little too time consuming when combinedwith making flowers too. Maybe I'll do a test run? The cottage flowers are a good idea too. Hollyhocks don't take too too long. This is one I was thinking about doing, but I wasn't sure if there would be a lot of interest in these flowers.

  25. From the album: 1/6 scale house design

    I used the same method for glowing embers here in 1/6 scale that I did in the past for 1:12 scale, I used a bare round screw in bulb and socket from hobby lobby. Tiny red beads, broken sticks arranged and glued together with beads and covered the bulb with glue and beads also, in this scale I really need 2 bulbs. Also have been working on a candelabra, can make table top or floor standing candelabra what ever height using the turning stick from mini blinds as the stem, its hollow so you can run the wire through it and cuts easily. Then add what ever 1:12 scale fixture you desire on top and a b

  27. DH not only got the broken tooth pulled, but also the wisdom tooth behind it, which was apparently also a problem. I have been playing nurse all day; he woke up with hives and we had fun hunting down the topical diphenhydramine (generic Benadryl, FYI), and now I'm fixing him ice packs and warm salt water and a soft diet and scheduling his prophylactic antibiotic; I only thought I'd retired!

  29. What about making the paperclay "stones", cutting them out after the clay has dried & been painted, and gluing them onto your grout-colored walls?

  37. You've got a lot going on! I love your concept of literary houses. I've thought about maybe doing a Green Gables in the future, if I ever do a second house! By the way, does Belle have a book store or a library? Just wondering if you've made a common French mistake about that word -- "la librairie" actually means "the book store", while "la bibliotheque" (there's an accent on the first e of that, btw) means "the library".

  38. Even one "column" (read square dowel) added at the open side will provide enough support and not be much of a physical or visual hindrance. But if you put a channel molding along the edge of the ceiling/floor, which will keep the floor from sagging, you may not even need that much support.

  39. Alrighty, we mapped it out, 12 hours drive. And we looked at what was between here and there... So, it might actually be a possibility. Would be a fun road trip!
