    Little things to fill a house
  7. It has been over a year since I have written here. So much has happened. Too much to list. Am currently working on cretaing and organizing my laundry room so it can also be a craft room once again. I seem to have misplaced a lot of my minins and supplies in the garage soemwhere. I am sure in time they will turn up, but it is bothering me that I can not find certain things,
  8. I have finished and decorated the Orchid. I will be taking it down to the TV station Friday morning. Here are a few pictures of the outside. I put a small wreath for the holiday season on the door, since it will be offered at the holiday auction. The plant on the trellis is from a swap here. I thought it looked perfect and it kept telling me it wanted to live there. Here is a full pic of the inside Now for pics of the individual rooms. I really like how this house turned out.
  9. Here is the little amount of progress I have managed to do while ill. The bedroom dormer area is finished. I put a tulle net curtain suspended from the ceiling, made some pillows, and used an old earing for a beaded curtain over the window. This is the curtain for the larger room with the dormer. The small room upstairs has a curtain now. I am starting to put on the shingles. I still have 2 more curtains to make and to finish the kitchen area and build some furniture.
  10. This is not all my progress, I decided to save some pictures for the next post. I got both sides of the house sided and the bay window attached. I made a curatin for the bay window. the flash sort of washed it out, but it is a purple tulle net material with sparkles in it. There will be a nice pediment shelf across the top. To make siding the dormer peek easier after gluing on the window frames I founf the peice the frame punched out from and used it as a template to cut the siding. The living room has been carpeted and the coffee stirrer stick wainscoiting app
  11. I have been progressing slowly. The bay window is now attached and I am painstakingly adding siding on the sides 1 board at a time. It seems I will never finsh, but I know I will. I packed up the dollhouse in the car today and took it to Joann's what a mistake. As I was pushing a basket around the store, I think half of the city I live in had to look at it. There were a lot of women there getting spuulies for a beginning serger class at the community college adult community programs. I finally did get some material suitable for carpeting and drapes. I had accidently tossed the wallpaper scras
  12. Since my son was still at camp untill he got home 3:00 pm Sunday, (school starts 8:00 am Monday), and my earache is starting to feel better, I started decorating the outside. I glued the windows and most of the frame minus the pediment caps. I forgot to take a picture of this step. I figgured painting the siding strip individually would be easier to work with considering all the angle cuts I will need to make to go around the window frames. Next I started gluing on the siding strips. The front of the first floor has been sided. The pediments glued on. I just l
