  1. Wow Kells! Thank you for sharing your story and I'm so glad that you're feeling great now. There's so much we don't know about covid and how any of us would present if we got it. Very scary.
  2. You have to be careful to not get glue on the front, stain won't take where there is glue. Instead of staining, you can paint them after they are glued on.
  3. I tried the 2 roasting pans and it was a mess. The pans were too large, and the bottoms were not flat, but had ridges which also was a problem. I ended up just putting a handful in a smaller metal pan and swishing them around. Feel free to read my blog post.... https://mini-madness.blogspot.com/2019/08/chateau-shingles.html
  4. Thats a Lawbre, yeah, repaint and wallpaper.
  5. Yeah, there's lots of conflicting and misinformation out there. Right now the CDC hasn't confirmed any of those antibody tests, and the FDA is issuing what amounts to a bypass to companies who have developed the serology tests. They aren't approved by FDA but the manufacturers have the ability to sell this test. That doesn't give me the warm and fuzzies as to the quality and validity of the tests and I know that their first priorities for testing are first responders etc. So for now I will stay home, and live in my own bubble.
  6. Here in Illinois we are also on stay at home and I've been working from home since early March. Fortunately both me and hubby still have a job. I was horribly sick in mid February, down for 2 weeks with upper respiratory and sinus, gave it to hubby who too was horribly sick. We both think we had Covid, but of course couldn't get tested. I was either taking time off or WFH during that time, though I did commute downtown 1-2 days...probably spread whatever I had :(. Life is so surreal and the future uncertain, what will the new normal look like. like @1martinimomma I have been thinking about
  7. I'd say it all depends. I just don't see it actually happening, to be honest. If you asked me a month ago, I'd say it probably would, but there's so much we don't know and all the lack of data, testing, etc makes what our future looks like very uncertain.
  8. Nice the forum is back up - thank you Dean for all your hard work! I've been busy with a new job since November and then add to the mix working from home, so no mini work from me in a while. I"m trying to get my mojo back. After being dormant for a long time, I will need to figure out where I was with some of my mini work, go back to photos and maybe look over inventory for the current house (lots of stuff still in boxes). Waiting for work to settle a bit, working with a new team and that's been draining.
  9. Its mini magic for sure!
  10. Yeah....what's up with that?? So they are looking for a bidding war? "Originally cost over $200 - you the bidders decide its value today!!"
  11. I am not a well-traveled person, and can't say I have much knowledge about SA so this is interesting to me!
  12. Really interesting to read about the history of miniature artisans. Mark and Chris are Majestic Mansions, well, Mark is at least. It also references and links to Mountain Miniatures, which I interpret as that Chris runs it. Its very heartwarming to learn about people's passions and how they are going strong into their retirement, and are still very passionate about it! https://www.gainesvilletimes.com/life/people/lula-couple-find-new-career-purpose-retirement-focusing-little-things/
  13. Lawbre farmhouse in Elgin (outside Chicago) $60 - a steal https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2536402223270573/
  14. I did that workshop and it was so much fun! I learned a ton of techniques from the masters W&B! This one has the counters custom painted and with the red trim in the edges...can't help but wonder if it wasn't one of their prototypes for the workshop. This seller has another of their roomboxes on sale - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dollhouse-Miniature-Artisan-Movie-Theater-Room-Box/303325569500?hash=item469f9ce1dc:g:6W0AAOSwgfpdf-mG
