  1. I have been looking for the discontinued hobby lobby sink and upper cabinet for a while now. There have been a few on ebay, but I have either been out bid it is ridiculously over priced. If anyone has these two pieces and would like to part with them, please let me know!!
  2. Thanks! Forgot about them!! Would you consider this to fit into the 1920's era??
  3. I love your sink!! Where did you find that?
  4. I loved the Chantilly when I first saw it. When I put her together, I was not happy with it anymore because of the layout. She sat in my closet for almost 2 years. I recently pulled her out and redid the whole thing. I was also lucky enough to come across the Victorianna. Altered that kit also. Still have my eye for another. Love that they are half scale AND hang on the wall! This is my Chantilly make over
  5. OMG - last thing I want to do is go back to March!! April - Keli and I are meeting up. Too bad you are unable to go!!
  6. Anyone planning on going? 3-10-13 and 3-11-13
  7. Even with the few mishaps, I would still buy it again. The kits are so different than what is out there. I have pictures on my blog - here is the link to the posts that have the Leon pictures in them. I have been working on the exterior yesterday and about to start adding the magic brick.(first time I have used it - wish me luck). Hope to update with more pics tonight.
  8. I got the Leon half scale for Christmas. Been working on it here and there. The owner is great - there was some trim that I liked that came with the kit. I contacted the owner and he made up some for me to buy. I really like the kit, however it does not go together as smoothly as what i had hoped. I cut the tabs off most of the pieces as they ddi not sit right, but I guess these things happen with tab/slot houses.
  9. I have been working a lot on my half scale houses. I have changed the layout of the Chantilly. Pic of the front and part of the second floor. There are more pics on my blog if anyone is interested. Here are the Chantilly linked posts Pics of the Victorianna linked posts Have you guys seen the Leon's Victorian Mansion? I got this kit for Christmas. It does not go together well, and the instructions are poor, but overall I am happy with the house.
  10. I left them out of my half scale McKinley - only becaused I bashed the house and then lost the new window inserts. They are also not in my half scale Chantilly - as (again) I rebashed that house and was not able to save the plastic. What about the lids from donut containers??
  11. Thanks!! I am trying to find a railing for the porch that I like. Plus I am going to make a door for the bedroom that leads to the porch. Maybe I can do that today (inbetween puppy time - they are cute arent they Debora!?)
  12. Just wanted to share what I have done to my Chantilly. I am going to have a wrap around porch. In the photo I dont have support posts yet (among other things) The third floor has been removed for more of an open layout. On the left there will be a bathroom tucked back there. Spiral stairs will lead from the first floor to the second. Still lots and lots of things to do, but I am glad the roof worked out for me! There are more photos on my blog that show the bathroom idea better in an earlier post. I will say I am not thrilled with how I papered the bedroom. Not sure
  13. I like the darker green trim with the round window. The more I looked at the two - the one with white on it reminded me of a life preserver
  14. Gail - Would love to see pictures of your Victorianna! I found a kit on esty over the summer. I love it, and would love to have another! Pics of mine here. I changed the layout and added an addition. (I also have a half scale Chantilly that I am trying to change also). I glanced at the above post regarding wallpaper - I have to say that I do like Itsy but I try to order all my sheets at once and hpe I have extra and not have to get more. One thing that irked me is that it was costing me the same for her to ship to me full scale papers in a box that it was half scale papers in a envelope.
  15. I had an old table and my friend gave me a awesome little house. Here is what I did with it
  16. I have seen in my personal email that someone had replied multiple times on a mini show post i made a few months ago. When I checked it at the forum a moderator must have removed them all.
  17. Good for you Pam! If you are not able, I am game! alpangle @ comcast dot net
  18. Very nice! I am leaning more the half scale way now
  19. Welcome! I just found your blog last week by (happy) accident!
  20. I use fine sand paper and rough up the brass - then pretty much do the same as everyone else. I am so sick of the brass look!
  21. Thanks!!! I looked on ebay and found a lot of other great things, but never saw them. Will order all three!!
  22. Seeing at though the PM is not working - Emily - where can I find more of the fridge magnets? I have been able to find a lot of other magnets that I can use - but have not come across a fridge. Need a few!!
  23. Thanks!!! I just ordered the 2 available from this ebay seller! Emily - I never have seen this section before. I ordered before I scrolled down to your post from ebay. I will have to see what else I can find on HBS site
  24. You didnt miss much. Half of the tables there were displays. Saving my $$ for the Ann Arbor show!! See you there!
