  1. I agree with you wholeheartedly! I've always heard "it takes all kinds" in regard to humanity. Really? I honestly think that if all the rapists, murderers, thieves, arsonists, druggies, etc. . . decided to leave, I wouldn't miss them. It always seems to me that the people who try to live moral, fair lives are the ones who are censored, put down, and ridiculed. Everybody is always going all out to try to defend the criminals and their acts . . . to find or create excuses for the vile things they do. I am just sick of it!
  2. Hi, Chris: thank you so much for your kind reply and your suggestion. I don't know if they can prescribe that, but I will ask my brother about it. I just want him to have this behind him, and be healthy again. I still remember when he was born - they lived in Vicksburg, Mississippi at the time - I went all the way down there to meet him, and he was the most beautiful, angelic baby: blonde ringlets and enormous blue eyes! He is 29 now, but I still remember those first days and it just tears me up to see him going through this. He's a good fellow, and my brother is an outstanding man, so
  3. I feel that way, too. I am disgusted with HBS because of the facebook thing, and because they had set a precedent for many years of giving the entrants the next year's kit and then stopped it cold turkey, with no notice. I mainly entered because of the kit gift. When I called them, they informed me they had recently offered next year's kit on sale. Well, fat lot of good that did me . . . they put it on sale before I knew I wasn't getting it. Now, it is over $120 + shipping, and there is NO way I am going to pay that! It was THEIR idea to make an overpriced kit for the contest - the least
  4. While I am glad her intention was to educate, not to promote the use of meth, I am going to be just completely honest here: I think hers won a prize because of the gimmick, not the artistry of the piece. I saw several entries that I personally thought were much more deserving in winning a prize than that one. Do I think hers was well-done? Absolutely. Just not better than many of the other entries. I can think of three that Greenleaf members did that I think are better than that one. (I am absolutely not including mine. Mine wasn't nearly even finished, or at least not as finished as I
  5. My nephew is having his brain surgery (far more complicated than we originally thought) on Tuesday, February 1st. Your continued prayers are greatly appreciated. It's all I can think about - I dread this ordeal for him so badly.
  6. You know how much I love your gorgeous scratch-built house - you are doing a fantastic job on it! But, I do think if you want yours to be a French Chateau, you really are going to need to use this style of roof. When I look at the flat-roof version, I think English or Georgian.
  7. You did a beautiful job on it! It couldn't be prettier!
  8. What a beautiful job! And, YES, it DOES look like 86 parts to me! OUTSTANDING!
  9. I NEVER said HBS & Greenleaf are the same company, nor did I insinuate it. I just said that other companies and their contests ARE discussed on here. As far as the edit I was talking about, I distinctly recall that the first one had more than one mention of "just leave" (rather vehemently) within the post. I am not saying I disagree with your sentiment - I didn't see the original post - just that it elicited a very strong response from you.
  10. I don't know what the comment was either, but to elicit such a harsh, hostile (the pre-edit version) response from Tracy, I assume it must have been objectionable. Having said that, though, I do think that the HBS contest is as relevant to the Greenleaf site as many of the other miniature topics that come up here. After all, a lot of us entered that contest. And, there are a lot of posts about other brands of houses, places to buy minis, etc that are not Greenleaf related. If the HBS contest isn't relevant here, are those? And, don't forget: last year, the Spring Fling contest was pigg
  11. Oh, how fun and adorable!!! I've never seen anything like this!
  12. I have a real thing about beautiful miniature china, and this set is just gorgeous!!!!! And, how special to have gotten them in Scotland (a place I would dearly love to visit!).
  13. This is just beautiful! You have a wonderful talent for bringing all of the little details together.
  14. What a cozy, sweet room! You did a beautiful job on the darling quilt!
  15. I think it's the prettiest bathroom I've seen!
