  1. Thanks CJ n Holly:) Holly, this one came to me awhile back...I live in LaPorte IN--home of Belle Gunness (said to be the first female serial killer)--she lived there in the early 1900's-her first husband "died", then she would correspond with gentlemen, who later moved to marry her...most of these men had money, or insurance policies taken out on them, I believe. ( Check out wikipedia, there's a nice article.) Back in 1908 or so, her house burned down and she disappeared---she was spotted on the West coast--and Los Angeles AND San Francisco.. So...the owner of my San Franc
  2. Thanks, I saw another San Fran. done with stained and really like it...
  3. My San Franciscan is the home of a lovely young lady, Nicole...her wealthy husbands have a habit of "leaving town" ... and leaving Nicole their fortunes. I got the idea from the story of Belle Gunness--who lived in my town in the early 1900's--she is said to be the first female serial killer--corresponding with men through the mail, marrying them...soon they disappeared and Belle ended up with their $$. The last name I chose "Vueve Noire" means "black widow" in French...for that's exactly what Nicole is...hehe
  4. Hi all, been gone a loooonnnggg while Lots of rl stuff got in the way of my minis--So last month, I finally decided it was time to start a new project and maybe that would help me get back into mini's ( I was half way through my Willowcrest, when I put it aside) So hopefully, I'm back to stay ! I'm making an album of my Dura Craft San Franciscan...its coming along nicely. Holly, u may remember I like to add a little story about the "owners" of my houses ( this ones a bit "dark" too, like Lilly's Sweet Shop( a twist on Hansel n Gretel)
  5. Thank you, I was happy with how it turned out The wallpaper is from HBS...
  6. Thanks everyone.....it turned out almost as i had pictured. (Vince was even a little touched that I thought of him...)
  7. sssshhhh...looked it up online ;)
  8. Thank you Truly, I got the chairs from a woman on Ebay...can't take the credit...I like them too ! ( Lyssa, Vince(or me) really isn't into hunting-I love Bambi....fishing is his thing....and of course he's big into peace and quiet,lol)
  9. When I first saw the Fling, I thought of a Tudor style building, but couldn't think of something unique--but once I dryfitted the additions with the main build, a lightbulb went off and I decided to make this hunting lodge a tribute to my husband Vince who works so hard for our family and rarely complains that he can't eat at the dining room table during SF season or that the house is a mess...what a guy;)
