  1. From the album: Charleston Single House and Garden

    Still working on the gas stove top, but had to pull the trigger on the kitchen flooring before securing the walls. Faux painted slate on mat board with acrylic paint. Replicating the entryway floor pattern. I like the symmetry, with a bit of a twist. I still need to stain the wood, so the pattern won't be as pronounced as it is in the entryway, but they flank the dining room.

    Molly has arrived and oh my goodness, she's so excited! As soon as she saw the dollhouse loft, she started giggling and chirruping about so many houses that are just her size. But as soon as she saw the Emerald Fairy's house, her little eyes lit up and she squealed, "Oh, yes please!! May I stay here?" I reassured her that she's welcome to stay there as long as she likes, introduced her to the fairy and showed her around the place. Right now she's happily exploring the downstairs and says that the leaf furniture is just the right size for her and reminds her of lily pads.

    Let's not get into how much time I spend on this, or any of my mini projects, for that matter. Finished the kitchen window today. So happy with how it turned out. Really want a gas stove top for this kitchen and have been working that creative endeavor with a madness only understood by our ilk!

    Here is the front wall with the new door and window frames in dry fit. I had to fill in a little space on the top and take a little off the sides...

    Some of you may remember that I had dormers for the barn project. Because of the slope of the roof, Russ helped me to recreate the angle in the dormers by cutting them with his compound miter saw. There was essentially half a dormer left over for each of the three we cut. This gave me an idea... The front roof seemed awfully big and boring on this kit. It was crying out for a dormer, and I just happened t have an extra round attic window...

    I cut away the settle bench wall from the porch too. I want a more substantial porch for displaying stuff to lure you into the shop.

    Added casters to this little table and now I have a cute end table to display my dollhouse in the great room.

    I cut most of the second floor away and just left a shelf for displaying stuff. Because the new door was so much taller than the kit door, I cut out that floor section completely. We'll see what ideas strike me in that area as we go along.

    The double windows are just a bit larger than the openings in the kit, so I trimmed away the plywood using my scroll saw. I had to make access cuts in a few cases, but these are easily repaired later with interior and exterior wall finishes.

    And here they are trimmed and glued. There will be matching frames on the inside, so I modified and glued a total of eight window frames.

  13. I know!!! Isn't it just funny how it can work out that way? I've wanted one of Amber Mathies' Trollflings for a long time but always seemed to miss the ones that spoke to me until Molly came along and I got her within an hour of her going up for sale. It's funny because I was talking to her when I was coming up the stairs and wondering which house she'd stay in til I built a sugarplum for her and all that went right out of my head. It's like the fairy house was custom made for her. The bubble rider fairy that I've had in the Aster was just a place holder til I found one I liked better bu

    I did some more Ivy today on the opposite side of the door. Don't want to get carried away with it but I think it makes a neat backdrop for flowers to go in front of it and I think it sort of anchors the house down. Made a witchy looking broom ( not sure if a witch lives here ) and some small violet or primrose type flowers in the cracks of the steps.

  17. @kathi17 @Libby you girls are the best. Thank you. First time doing landscaping and it is so labor intensive and time consuming. I'm thankful the weather hasn't been great. I always feel guilty being inside when it's nice out

  23. Deiivered the lamb cake to cousin Gloria today. She was delightfully surprised. When we left, she was muttering something about just who exactly she was going to let have a piece, and the list didn't seem to be very long. lol
