  1. Welcome to the little family, Jessica. I have requested that this topic be moved to the Newcomers' Forum, since this one is primarily for technical questions about the website. What a gorgeous house! One of our more knowledgeable members (Kelly!) most likely can better answer your first two questions. #3 Anything and everything can be handmade with patience and a few simple tools & supplies. Big box craft stores like Hobby Lobby have a section that carries basswood in sheets and strip wood. A Stanley box cutter with retractable blades will cut basswood up to 1/4" thick,

  2. I cut all her hair off and glued hair directly onto the head. I did buy a wig and I'm not feeling it as I just think it's to much hair. To take off the lips or eyes you use pure acetone or strong nail polish remover. The nail polish remover will take a bit of time to get it off. Oh yeah after painting you seal with a matte sealer. I found Kelly shoes on EBAY or ALIEXPRESS

  3. I wish it wasn't so but it can be like that here in the US when it comes to nudity. There not gross or anything just really busty I wish you could get them in a more normal body style. You know the whole body image thing they are not east to dress either for young hands. The male counterpart dolls are just like Ken. I didn't make the clothes . There's a couple of ladies on Etsy that do a great job fitting these doll. I can sew and have started looking at stretchy materials to make clothes because they can get pricey. So I will attempt some clothing.

  4. From the album: San Franciscan Interior

    her kitchen has many of her favorite things, her espresso maker for her Cuban coffee in the morning, my Mom loved Milanos, and while they probably weren't around in 1922 in real life, since this isn't I decided she could have Milanos. Cuban Coffee is on the top shelf, along with her Mortar and Pestle. My Mom would grind all of her spices daily in that thing...she should've been a pharmacist! She loved Bananas with her breakfast and a little scoop of Papaya didn't hurt ether. Cuban seasonings and spices sit atop the stove .... waiting for the magic to begin.

    jammed with accessories and furnishing that have been purchased and made along the 3 year journey to complete this house. Set around the 1920's and reflective of what I think my Mom's home would look like if her life had been just a little different.

  7. Hello everyone!!! new here, from Kentucky. Been into crafts pretty much my whole life. Been making 1/2 inch tall paper houses lately for a shadow box and was reminded how much I love miniatures! Always wanted to build my own dollhouse but finances were an issue as it can get pricey. Been looking at the 144th scale ones Because I don't have a lot of spare room. I haven't decided which one to chose yet but surely soon I will. I love the beacon hill but I can't find one in 144th scale anywhere! If anyone does please let me know! I believe I'll have to start on a different one until I can find the

    I learned that Monitor Top refrigerators were made available to the consumer in 1922, that happens to be the year my Mom was born so it was only fitting that it should be in her kitchen

  12. What a wonderful way to bring back happy moments in your dad's everyday life. Glad to see the decorating getting started on your beautiful SF. It's going to be a stunner when you get her all dressed up on the inside.

  13. Hi, Jessica, and welcome to the forum. As to your questions, the answer is yes. Taken together they may seem overwhelming, but taken one step at a time, it is all do-able. Our administrator Tracy (Minis on the Edge) has a mantra: It is hard by the yard but a cinch by the inch. Feel free to ask for advice on specific parts of the renovation.

  15. That was one of the reasons I asked what they were made of, wasn't sure if the name was just mis-spelled (I've tried writing that word about 4 times and it still doesn't look right!). But no - there actually is a different place which I've not seen before! From what I understand Carrie, not all the males are neutered......

  16. Yes I agree you can’t see the tops when the roof is flipped up... I think it’s the shape of the dormer... the top of the curtain my be recessed out if sight due to the triangular nature of a dormer. Could be wrong, but I think that’s what’s going on. Indeed! If I lived in Ohio I’d be on it.. it’s a lovely house.

  20. Hi everyone. I'm not new but I've been gone awhile. I don't know why because this is the only place that I can share my love for miniatures. No one in RL cares about it. When I was here last I was building my Queen Anne. I finished it and 5 years ago I had to sell it because I moved to a smaller place. I didn't want to sell it EVER. lol It broke my heart. A lot of work and love went into that house. Since then I haven't built another house because I don't want to go through that again. 2 years ago I started doing room boxes instead all the while wishing for a house. Well, last week I
