  1. I'm watching it on HGTV channel on TV, I want the ratings to be good so they'll do more seasons. I'm also recording it so I can go back and pause. etc. I can't say I've learned anything yet, but I just love love love looking at other people's work.
  2. A couple people I follow on Instagram are competitors on the show, that's how I heard about it. I'm excited to watch it! I hope it gets good ratings so maybe they'll do more seasons. Kathie maybe they'll get back in touch with you if they do :-)
  3. Cool house, lots of details. Great video too - thanks for narrating it and explaining how you made things. PS - I have a few pieces from my Mom's collection too that I'll never part with <3
  4. Beautiful house. I'd be happy just to have all that fancy trim and those railings.
  5. Yes I will, definitely. I've seen several real life Spanish style mansions in Miami with the large round center piece like the Highland so I think I can pull it off. Will do some slight bashing. I've been collecting all kinds of cool stuff for it...I already have clay barrel tile roofing, some decorative blue/white/yellow spanish style tile flooring, large corbels, balcony railings, stuff like that.
  6. I've missed out on several, or got outbid........BUT....I'm on the West Coast of Florida and my adult son lives on the East Coast - I saw a lady list a FREE Lawbre Nantucket that was so beautifully done on Marketplace on the East Coast. Within 5 minutes of it being listed I called my son and he agreed to leave work and immediately go get it, 30 minutes later it was GONE!! The listing was up for less than an hour and she gave it to someone else. I have never forgot about that house.
  7. Genevieve, I love your name. You have quite a beautiful collection! I did see the Rosedawn on eBay - I'm always window shopping! HaHa. There is a member on here that was giving her's away for FREE and I was tempted to take a road trip several states away to go get it, but then I snapped out of it.
  8. THAT'S MY HOUSE!!!!! That's the house that started it all for me-my mini obsession. My mother's 1949 Keystone of Boston that she got for xmas new in 1949-from Sears catalog. I have a gallery album for mine on here. She played with it, me and my sister played with it in the 70's, and both our daughters played with it in the 90's. Mom wanted to throw it away - I brought it home and totally remodeled it. (I got negative comments on youtube for "ruining" a collectors item-but thats what my family wanted, and it will now go to my grandkids when I pass away and stay in our family forever). Fun
  9. They must have - because the house is a replica of the main house in the series. There's an episode towards the end that shows the Uncle had it commissioned for Flora (the little girl in the show) for her birthday. I'm sure it was commissioned in real life for the show. What I'd like to know is where is it now - who got to keep it? LOL
  10. What a sweet idea, lucky girls!! Personally, I kinda like the idea of 3 identical houses, just painted/decorated different. Then there's truly nothing to create any jealousies (like the wrap around porch on the Laurel, but not on the others - just as an example).
  11. I started binge watching this on Saturday - I paused a few times to check out the house a little better. It's in a lot of episodes.
  12. What a unique house, I would love to have that too! I'm doing my Artply Highland in Spanish style, so I've been looking at a lot of adobe/Spanish houses.
  13. @GrannysueYes I spent many nights in front of the TV making all the tiny little treats LOL....it was fun!
  14. @Minis On The Edge Thanks so much! I had so much fun with it!!
