  1. I've been admiring the Greenleaf dollhouses online for years, but had never been able to justify the expense, until this spring, when the world got cancelled. I live in Northern Saskatchewan, Canada, and for the first couple months of lockdown, you literally couldn't go outside without your face freezing within a minute or two, so I decided I needed a project, and bought the Magnolia. Now I'm hooked! I'll admit I rushed out of excitement and I'm not thrilled with the colour, and I'm just not happy with how it turned out, so I'm giving it to my daughter to play with. I've ordered the Buttercup

  2. Just a quick intro. I have always been fascinated by dollhouses. The Arthur was my first dollhouse. I saved up my money at 10 to buy a kit. My dad partially assembled it before he gave up and got bored. Thus it never had shingles or all of the trim or any paint. But I loved it anyway. I would get to go to the dollhouse store once a year on my birthday and buy whatever I could afford with my birthday money. As an adult my love for houses has led me to a deep interest in decorating and design of old homes. No new construction for this girl! We just moved into my "dream house" in July. And

  3. So I am doing a version of a Southwestern style chair for fun and to see if I can. I am basing it on this one but will be putting my own slant on it and using what I have on hand as opposed to sourcing parts. I will be using goatskin leather, quarter sawn cherry, some bass or other wood for the slats, and steel studs. Mine will be different but hopefully capture the flavor of the original. I am also looking at using some madrone burl

  4. From the album: Needlework

    Tiny again, silk mesh, at least 20 colors. Because of all the detail, I think it looks more like the real painting. I'm going to use this like a tapestry in one of my builds.

  5. @FurMamano, its a sad tale. My dad got remarried and sold my entire collection at a yard sale when I was at college. I only found out because one of our neighbors had given me little brass candlesticks and bought them back. I am starting off slowly with building the Adams. I'd like to get to a place where I can kit hack an Arthur to look more like my current house which is kind of a stretched out version with a wrap around porch and 5 bays across the front. But a lot of my energy is going to renovations in my actual house at the moment. I do love seeing what others do with their kit

  6. Hi Holly, Yes, I'm okay. Still learning to adjust to life without my dear mother. You'd think that by this stage of my life it wouldn't be so hard. We're almost all settled into our new home - took much longer than anticipated. And I'm very busy trying to build the mini business to supplement our retirement. I miss everybody over here in Greenleaf land; must stop in more often now that my life has calmed down a bit. Do you remember the dollhouse I put in our garden window - The Garden Bistro? Here in this house we didn't have a garden window - I don't think anyone here even knows what t

  7. Howdy folks! Okay, I'm working on doing just that. I uploaded the instructions for the Garfield in the download section. There is a button in the download area that says "get support" which bring folks to this topic. Ideally, this topic will be used to support questions about the Garfield assembly so hopefully the common questions will all be address in one topic. With that in mind, I'm going to delete the above conversation unless Emily can move it to a new topic. I appreciate the feed back posted here, but want to keep things about the assembly of the Garfield. Before we moved
