    I must say that I love yellow houses....I think this is a pretty yellow. I want to paint my real life house a buttery color with white trim. We have the old tumbled red bricks on the bottom third.  It is a 1970's ranch.

    Funny, my real life houe is a buttery yellow with white trim and red doors. The paint color was called Navajo White, but here in the New England light it's creamy yellow.

    This is very sweet.  I like the shape of the fireplace/oven, reminds me of ones I saw in Sweden.  Where did you find the fireplace?

    I found a photo online and adapted it to fit the scale of the doll I made. It reminds me of hearths found in my family homeland of Lithuania, but I've found white masonry hearths from Sweden on down through Europe to Austria, Hungary and Romania. The rounded shape of this one especially appealed to me.

    When I look at the photos it looks too white, but when I look at it in person it looks fine. I wanted to keep it all sort of toy-like, if you know what I mean. If I were making it for a period setting, I'd add smoke and smudge, a wooden oven door, etc. I kind of what to do another one that way some time.

    This is as cute as a basket of kittens. :)

    Are you going to age the stove/oven unit? It's soooo white!

    I love this! I would love to know how you built those curved stairs! I just completed something almost exactly like this... they are ok, but I love how yours turned out.

  3. Thank you, Kathie, That area is a room with a stone floor. I need to finish the 2nd floor and add the roof before working on that room some more, since I can't make up my mind how the roof on that part should look. I'm hoping it'll come to me once I see the other roof in place.

  4. The walls would have been lime washed, which would have protected the actual wall underneath from weather damage. Lime wash produces a glow from the sparkling crystals in it, but by itself it's rather transparent, so they would generally add chalk to it to make it white. I read that sometimes they'd even paint the timbers with it, resulting in a gleaming white building.
