  1. We flew Norwegian Air to and from Spain. I happened to pick up the in flight magazine and was surprised to see a great article about the resurgence of miniatures. Finally tracked it down on the web to share. It starts on page 44! http://nmagazine.ink-live.com/html5/reader/production/default.aspx?pubname=n%20by%20Norwegian&edid=49c69c56-5d91-40c7-ae13-5ec0661d9aa5

  2. I finally got my French Country bathroom wallpapered, and cut the flooring to size. I still need to glue the flooring cardstock to posterboard, as out of necessity it is 2 pieces. I don't want to glue it permanently down in case I need to access the wiring. Still working out the furniture layout in the bathroom and once the paper is dry I will cut out the window. Will also want to install lights. I also purchased a furniture kit and glued that today. I'm planning on upholstered inserts on the head and foot, and some sort of french finish. This bed is probably going to be us

    I purchased this bed kit from a shop on Etsy - melissasminiwereld and have glued it. I think I'm going to do upholstered inserts on the head and footboard. Not sure yet of the finish but some sort of wash or shabby chic effect.

  8. (((hugs))) Jackie. My Mom is going through this as well. She lives with my brother who is single, never married, no children...He is getting a real education on what it is like to care for someone other than himself. I have my Dad with me. Luckily he is there mentally, physically he is a mess.

    Milled the wood for the floor, then picked up some paint today, the tanish color on the fireplace will be the living room color.

  10. I just asked because my first house (the RGT half-scale bungalow) had milled-in siding, and I remember they said to paint the siding right away to help protect it as you worked with the pieces. Apparently, it's quite soft and mars easily. So I guess, in this case, not having milled-in siding is a positive. And don't be nervous! You are being careful and taking the time to learn. I'm sure you'll do just fine.

  11. Another find from Goodwill Buy the Pound- an 'antique' radio, that already had a opening in the back! It will make a perfect mouse house. There are some photos in my Mice are Nice album: http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/?app=gallery&module=gallery&controller=browse&album=8125 Has anyone done a roombox in an antique radio before? I don't think I would have thought to do one if I hadn't found this yesterday, all ready to go.

  12. Roxie, my boys think a treat is a small kibble of their regular food. A friend of mine has the same issue with her dogs; they do't want their food because they know they can just give her the puppy eyes and they'll get treats or whatever she's eating instead

  15. When my DM died, no one would take her poodle and our boys wanted "a dog" (a whole lot more than their momma & daddy, I might add). Mother had brought him with her on a visit that previous summer, so I knew she only fed him either ground sirloin cooked in butter or chicken livers poached in butter, so it took him three days to learn to eat Purina dog chow.

  23. I've tried that method using aluminum foil. It works really nicely, and can be folded and refolded several times without any issues. I machine basted the foil to a "lining" piece, with the foil cut about 1/4" smaller on all sides. Then I pinned and sewed the "foiled" lining inside the front and back of the quilt cover. The machine needle didn't seem to have an issue going through the aluminum foil. It may have even sharpened the needle a little, as I've heard you can sharpen a paper cutter blade by cutting alum foil. I've also tried the method of sewing thin wire inside the perimeter

  24. it IS draining and exhausting physically and emotionally as I have been where you are. My mom and I didn't have the best relationship and she spent the last 4 years of her life in my home....often it was hell...but that last year, something changed and I saw her for how frail she'd become and how angry she was that it had happened. the last 4 months we had the best relationship ever and she passed peacefully in our home. I wouldn't trade all those ER visits now for anything...they are giants from another era and those last few months were everything even though it was so draining to be back

  25. Drea, try looking up Dana Burton doll tutorials on Pinterest. She also has a website, Facebook groups, io group, etc, so her tutorials are easily found with a google images search. She’s really good at the DIVA look and probably has something that would inspire you. She teaches a way of doll dressing that uses very little if any actual sewing, seams are mostly glued. The book Holly suggested is awesome for dressmaking, but it’s kind of the opposite from Dana’s technique, in that it’s suggested everything is hand sewn. Different schools of thought, sewing vs. gluing. I usually do some

  28. I think fan fiction is usually when a fan of an existing work creates something new within that universe. The example Erin mentioned fits quite well as it's a fictional bookstore within a universe in which this place doesn't exist. A replica would be something that tries to be faithful to the original work, so that could perhaps be "fan art" but not exactly "fan fiction", if it makes any sense. I guess I was never much into fanfiction but I find the concept interesting. When I was a kid I used to read a lot, and then I'd be constantly trying to come up with my own stories when playin

  29. I just need to find some doorknobs that i like, add curtains and then decorate! I got a start on the shingles, but i still need to shingle most of the roof. I also need to install a little bit of exterior trim and this house will be done! Some of the photos are pre-polyurethane. I love the look after the polyurethane has been applied, it brings out the lovely color of the stain.I'm loving how this house has turned out. Still disappointed with the interior stonework tho. I was dumb and applied a dirty wash after I had finished my stonework, it really changed how it looked. oh well, i'm no

  30. I finished the floor in the ladies sitting room. The flash on the camera really shows the white of the underfloor but it looks better in person. I also got the floor completely installed in the guys man upstairs room. So glad I decided to do the edging strip, it looks awesome in person. I need to polyurethane the wood floors but just thought i'd show photos! I glued in the carpet in the nursery and the wallpaper on the bottom portion of the wall (i didn't like what i had previously, this looks better), all it needs is trim and molding!...and a light fixture. I also installed and stained the fl

  31. making a bit more progress. gonna take a nap then work on the staircases today Despite trying hard to avoid tiny gaps, they still occurred. you don't notice them tho without the camera flash. I will be using a different area rug in this room...this one was handy tho for photos.
