  1. Home from vacation, the missing pieces are all in a bag, and the instructions too. It's a Newport '97

  2. I've used the asphalt ones from Hobby Lobby. They look nice and are easy. They are on a roll so that is nice, and they are easy to cut.

  3. I'm with you Sue! I was thinking the same thing, all this fancy. This week I've had Mellow Mushroom, Waffle House, and Stouffer's Lasagna!

  4. Thanks Selkie.. I was feeling intimidated by all these wonderful meals. Now I can share my Fried Bologna Sandwich with cheese and mustard:-))) I do live in the South (U.S.) for sure.

  5. My mum went to Cuba for 2 weeks. My dad rarely leaves his room, except to go to the washroom and to get food. So the kittens had the run of the place. They did extensive gardening in the sunroom (3 plants were MIA...later found to have been beyond saving). They repainted the walls with mud, replaced the laminate floor with mud and added an insulating layer of mud to the windows. My poor mother. The kittens are still in disgrace.

  6. I've worked with the asphalt shingles for many years and loved them! However, the couple that manufactured the "What's Next" brand have retired because of health issues, so for a long time it was very difficult to even find a shop with a stash of them in stock. But now HBS has a supplier doing these new paper ones that you spray with stone fleck paint. I haven't used them yet, but I'd imagine that they would be as easy and convenient to use as the original asphalt shingles.

  7. I have used the shingle strips rom Hobby Builder Supply. I spray the with a coat of Rustoleum Textured paint before glueing them in place. I especially like how easy it is to keep them dust-free, whereas the wood shingles tend to harbor dust. It is a more modern look.

  8. Well, mom will be scrubbing for much of the weekend, and the 3 plants that went MIA have gone to become compost. The kittens are usually better behaved.....until she goes away, lol!

  9. You can also iron thin cotton to the shiny (plastic coated) side of freeze rpaper. Cut to size, it goes through the printer quite well.

  10. I thought Houseworks said on their website they were made in Thailand and had been since they opened? I am ok with foreign companies if, like Houseworks, they make original and unique products. I don't like it when they steal someone else's designs and knock them off

  12. Oh noes! Did the joints disintegrate? Gives new meaning to 'move it or lose it', I suppose. My models had the metal rod, too -- I used the wooden round stands to make the nightstands in the Haunted Heritage bedroom.

  14. Done the BH, Travel Trailer, two Orchids among about a gazillion other houses. As said before, read take your time and make sure the glass of wine is full. I was tempted on more than one occasion to toss mine into the yard. Take a break, and then start again. when it's done you will stand back and just be amazed at what you have done.

  15. For safety's sake, I'm making 11. The first is the practice (where I have no expectations, purely hope)! But even it is coming out grand!!! My oldest son has been helping me with sorting, everyone has their own ziploc and as parts are made he puts them in the appropriate baggy. Such a grand help!

  16. Welcome Whit. I'm Rosie a newbie too... I'm starting small with the Orchid but know exactly how you feel. I brought my kit over a decade ago, opened the box... closed ot back up and stored it away... I'm now feeling a little braver but moving VERY, VERY slow lol. I still have to set up my workshop (dinning room table) lol

  17. I have made so many mistakes with my beacon hill . But after much frustration it is finally coming along. I think it was talking to me to much. I love this house.

  21. OK, today’s conversation. "Daddy, can we put a pool into ariel’s red room." "NO!" puppy dog look "pleeaassee" sigh "I'll see what I can do." (now stupidly committed) "Daddy?” "Yes" "It has to have a water fall and a lily with a tiny tiny frog sitting on it." Sound of dad hitting head against wall. Wish me luck.
