  1. Sorry everyone, I can’t find the contact info for the Superlative designer’s daughter Joanne. If I do I will pm the people who requested it.
  2. Thanks everyone. I haven’t worked on a dollhouse for a couple of years So this will be a fun challenge. I’ve been more focused on playwriting these past few years with some nice success, but I am finding that handiwork is more amenable to me right now during this pandemic. Sorry about the link issue. It’s the newest post on my blog: www.rockawayrosedollhouse.blogspot.com I looked at several different models of it on Pinterest and already have some bashing ideas in mind!
  3. Thanks to Emily PB for posting the link to the San Francisco dollhouse in Daytona Beach. We just made the long trip from Miami Beach and picked it up. It’s huge! It has been on my wish list for a while...I even purchased the plans to build it from vintage Woodworking Plans but seems very doubtful I would ever do it and I prefer to rehab, especially with an apartment full of cats. pics here: https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=5675841322274797796&useLegacyBlogger=true#editor/target=post;postID=9176628889700874239;onPublishedMenu=posts;onClosedMenu=posts;postNum=0;src=postname
  4. Thank you! I just sent her a message to see if it’s still available. I think I have plans for that one but I prefer to rehab it. It would be a nice trip from Miami Beach to pick it up!
  5. Hi everyone! I am still around but right now on my way to Hawaii. Back on 12/25 and will try and find the info you requested. Happy holidays all! Arianna
  6. Yes, Holly, I was thinking about that too. It might be best to stay away from hiking paraphanalia all together - the one thing I want to avoid is giving them more pain - and highlight the photography and music as you say. I'm going to create a false back with one of his beautiful pictures as the vista: https://www.instagram.com/zachkrull/
  7. My brother and SIL had brought home a hat like that, that he loved to wear, so I think your thoughts are very valuable about that. I'm hesitant about the patch, only because the NPS were involved in the search effort and so I don't want to highlight his death but rather how he lived and his hopes and dreams... Has anyone else here done a memorial roombox, room or dollhouse? Curious as to what guided your decisions and how the process was for you. Arianna
  8. Good ideas, Kathie, thank you. I'll follow up. I could probably make the hat out of clay if need be.
  9. Hi everyone, earlier this year my 20-year-old nephew passed away while hiking in Olympia National Park. I'm going to be creating a roombox of his skills and hobbies to gift to my brother and sister-in-law. Zach wanted to be a park ranger and I thought it might be nice to have a mini park ranger outfit and hat hanging on a hanger in the room. Although I sew a little I don't really have skill with mini clothing and was wondering if anyone on here did or could point me in the direction of someone who does. Here's a link to NPS Ranger outfits: http://www.madetomeasuremag.com/clothes-make-the-ranger-national-park-service-uniforms-serve-a-vital-need I love the Karin Smead dolls but it's not in my budget, and I think might be too painful for them to have a doll that looked like him in the box. He was an accomplished photographer and EDM DJ (Electronic Dance Music) so I will focus on that and his love of the outdoors. I thought about a log cabin dollhouse but I think a smaller roombox might be more appreciated by them. Thanks, Arianna

    So excited you are building this. I have the plans for this but not sure if we really have the room in our apartment to build it! Looking forward to seeing your progress.
  11. Wonderful Sable! I'm getting back into dollhousing and was also looking up information about your monthly meetings. Hope you are well and happy holidays! - Arianna
  12. Hi everyone, I visited this exhibit at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida, yesterday, and it's running through February. Great fun. I posted pics of the dollhouses to my blog: https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=5675841322274797796#editor/target=post;postID=221852157459535050;onPublishedMenu=allposts;onClosedMenu=allposts;postNum=0;src=postname Here is the link to the museum site about the exhibition: http://www.norton.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=exhibitions.details&content_id=3520
  13. Thanks everyone - I started a new page in my blog with more pics, use this link: http://rockawayrosedollhouse.blogspot.com/2017/12/completed-key-west-dollhouse-hofco.html
