  1. This is a great tutorial. Thank you so much! I think I may try it. I'm always excited to learn new skills!
  2. Thank you Sable. We are going and will make a weekend trip and have a good time either way. Looking forward to seeing what they have. The last time I went to a show, it was in Orlando in the 1990's. I hope to make it to a big show sometime.
  3. I am not sure if I'm posting in the correct section, but there is a miniatures show in Lakeland, Fl which is a few hours drive for me. I was wondering if any of the Floridians here have ever attended this show? I would've loved to have gone to the Chicago show, but due to medical issues, I am not always able to travel. Does anyone know if this a show with a lot of vendors and displays? I know you can shop online, but it's nice to see the products in person. I am just starting a scratch build house, but it has been many years since I was involved in miniatures. Now that I find myself with some time to dedicate to this hobby( I am now disabled due to the big "C") I am excited to attend some shows. I'm hoping it's worth the trip. I have been lurking in this forum and I am so fascinated by the talent here. There is such a wealth of information here and for that, I am grateful. Thank you!

    It looks beautiful unfinished too.
  13. Sable, if the premade windows and doors are 3/8", after inserting into the 5/8" opening, when I trim around them will they be held firmly in place with the trim? And when and where is the NAME meeting and do I have to be a member?
  14. You definitely should market those railings. I'll be a customer.
  15. Really beautiful. I love the color combo on the exterior.
  16. I just found some simple chandeliers that I can adapt to what I need as someone suggested earlier. It's Heidi Ott's website and they are reasonably priced. I found the suggestion while browsing this forum. So thankful.
  17. Thank you so much for the quick and helpful responses. After reading your answers, we've decided not to use MDF due to the weight issue and try for 3/8" plywood instead. I will check out the link for lighting supplies and also see if I can find that tube bending tool. I'll keep a look out for step by step instructions on making those multi arm chandeliers. Wish us luck on our new build. Havanaholly: I live in Palm Beach county.
  18. Regarding those knobs: it's those small details that make this hobby fun .Your rooms look great.
  19. My husband and I are building a dollhouse. It is our own design, not a kit. We have been planning to do this for many years, but other things were prioritized and plans were put on hold. I had built a house from a kit many, many years ago (back in the 1980's). When relocating from NY to where we are now, the house was given away. I have several questions and I am thankful there is a forum such as this I can go to for help. Please bear with me. 1: We are not sure about the thickness of the walls of the house. Should they be quarter inch or half inch thick? We plan on using MDF. 2: My previous house from a kit was a Victorian style house. This house will not be Victorian period, but I notice that most of the lighting today is Victorian style and we would like more of a "today" look for our lighting. I am willing to make the lighting myself as I like to learn anything miniature. I have been all over the Internet, but cannot find clear step by step instructions for making those very expensive functioning multi arm crystal chandeliers. I've read that it is difficult due to bending the tube without kinking it. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am stumped on this. We plan on electrifying with the tape method after researching many videos. We also plan on using recessed lighting in some of the rooms I just can't figure out the chandelier thing and don't really want to spend hundreds of dollars on one light ( plus I like the satisfaction of building it myself). I have collected many things for my house for years and I am so exited to finally do this. Sorry for the long post and thanks again to everyone on this forum.
