  1. I'm so thrilled with this light! My inspiration is a photo from Pinterest. I've never built a light before, but I've been watching videos. I haven't attached the roof yet and I won't until the kitchen is done. So that light is a bit off center, I'll fix that when it's all ready to go into place. I painted it to look like antique bronze. Built with wood, jewelry findings, styrene and dowels. The room addition is finally complete. The benches are actually built in and the cushions and pillows are following a tutorial from Julie Warren. Kim

  4. Haha, very funny. But also, who saw those pictures and thought it was a real house?! Sometimes you can't tell, but those rooms look mini to me. Also, I just noticed the bedroom has the same carpet I'm stitching right now! But with different colors.

  8. I have sent an e mail to SDK to see if they can do me a plain green rubber plant,but had a chance to look at all her plants and I could not believe my eyes when I saw she had 1/24 scale snowdrops.They played such a big part in my childhood, she also had the lilacs I needed, so a million thanks to you for this wondrous link.My memory house thanks you too!! My Mum will be up there tearing up about now I think.

    I love how it's turned out. The little owl planter and fox ornament are from Barklay's minis on Etsy.

  12. This is a hobby that's supposed to be fun and to relax the hobbyist and allow us to unshackle our imaginations and creativity. There;s always the initial "OMG, what have I gotten myself into?" but that'll go away with a stiff adult beverage and/ or a hefty dose of really dark chocolate. Make friends with the kit and encourage it to tell you what it wants.

    I was thrilled when I saw that Tiny Iron Miniatures was offering this bed in half scale. I couldn’t buy it fast enough! I can’t wait to start dressing it. It will be a surprise and a sneak peak into my crazy ideas for this year's Creatin' Contest.

  15. My mini work has slowed down to a grinding halt. Not sure why. Combination of interest in genealogy research taking over much of my free time, taking care of a hubby recovering from another surgery (hip replacement this time), and weekends seeing the grands. Speaking of which - my 3 1/2 yr old granddaughter loves to come downstairs into my work room and play with the houses in rehab. At some point the subject of her wanting to help Gigi paint comes up, and I give some sort of excuse as to why it's not a good idea today.....maybe when it's warmer outside. Well, last week during one of ou

  18. This is an aside to the dollhouse topic, but this works amazingly well for pet stains on wood floors. I used this to get rid of cat urine stains when I discovered my cat was secretly urinating on the rug under my bed due to a health issue. After two rounds of spraying the hardwood floor with hydrogen peroxide and covering with a hydrogen peroxide soaked towel, both the odor and most of the stain were gone.

  19. I also doubt it's mold. I'd guess there are pits in the wood that are causing the stain to settle there, or something to do with the steel wool like Diane said. Staining this wood doesn't always work out because it has a big grain that's not to scale. It's also common for different pieces to take stain differently, so you end up with an inconsistent finish. I like the plywood houses because they're easy to bash, but I always cover up as much of the plywood as possible. If you really want the stairs to be stained, you could buy some micro veneer and apply it over the surface: https://www.e

    Meghan of Dollhouse Smithery (on IG and Etsy) made this gorgeous desk for this build for me. I downloaded the stationery from Etsy - Zenas Miniatures. I created the crystal collection from my own.

  24. He truly was talented and generous. I was so so lucky to do his workshop in 2014 just before his accident and I have been so grateful I took that opportunity, not only because I learnt so much and got to spend time with him, but also because he was a big influence on me ditching my day job and taking up miniatures full time. We had dinner one night - Rik, Shellie (from Shellie’s Minis in San Carlos) and myself and my husband - and both Rik and Shellie gave so much encouragement and advice that I have never forgotten. They were so kind. And also fun. So many people out there will be so sad that

  25. isn't it nuts? Im not sure I could justify even if the kit was $10 that cost of shipping. I mean I get that it's heavy but wow. Id rather fly overseas, visit, and pack the kit and bring it home. At least I'd feel like I got more out of it lol.

    Another sneak peek! If you'd told me I would fall in love with a halfscale shop counter, I would have laughed. But look at this beauty! I got it unfinished from Bauder pine and the workmanship is excellent. All I’ve done so far is give it a gentle light sanding and I've stained it dark walnut.
