  1. Rhonda, thank you for the compliment. In this house I was trying to replicate my SIL's home. She has black appliances and cabinets. I bought the cheapest kitchen set I could find and painted it myself....I think I ended up painting it 13 times!! Here is a link: http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/i...19531&st=20 Again, thank you for the compliment, and happy minituring!
  2. Hi Bre~ thanks for the compliments on my Arthur. I haven't been dh-ing due to other things going on....but that orchid has been staring me in the face everyday believe you me! Anyways, when I shingled the Arthur, I made templates out of grocery bags (brown wrapping paper) and then made lines where I wanted each top of the shingle to be. I used good 'ol Aileens in a small line and went down the line placing the shingles on. Then when it was dry I took my exacto and scissors and cut the shingles to conform to the template. After being sure all the shingles flowed together I glued the templates down. I had a lot of trouble with them breaking when I was trying to cut them individually. Roxxie-I painted them while the glue was drying...they warped and then went back into shape... I won't lie shingling was my most UNFAVORITE thing to do! As for the windows...tee hee...I did something HORRIBLE to get it right (well 'right' is obviously an oxymororn in that sentence)....I glued the panes on the inside, then I glued my trim to my wallpaper templates!!! Then tacked the templates to the wall !ha ha~ I figure if it ever gets changed (unlikely) the person can cut/peel the trim away from the templates...! S
  3. Thank you! And yes, that's Jane, she is always helping with the garden! The noise is from the major highway that I live on. Although, I am in a rural area...lol. Me either, I'm going to do more and put them in an actual veggie garden this year...that is what I have been working on all day....well other than piddling around on youtube and here tee hee. S
  4. well, I used a product called DIF The bottle says safe, but I suppose it's not because it contains sodium hydroxide.So I'm not sure what their definition of 'safe' is......Well, I'll post because someone may stumble upon this thread in the future. I also used the scoring tool to perforate the paper for the DIF to soak in. I don't know what kind of wallpaper I had, one had a fabric like feel and the other was definitely paper. S
  5. You didn't have an option for me. Sometimes I menu plan and sometimes I don't. Depends on what's going on that week. I'm flexible. If I wasn't we would never eat, lol! S
  6. If you have some time here are some vids from last summer! It's been so stinking cold this year, I wanted to share what's to come! Please watch in HQ (high quality, red button) because I have to convert the file and then I tend lose a lot of it's original clarity.
  7. THANK goodness I'm not the only one! I feel so embarrassed half the time people come over (and that is A LOT)! I have to declutter SEVERAL times a year because I keep everything and never know where to put it...Any object gets thrown in a cupboard, drawer, or closet not to be seen again until I declutter that area. I find stuff and think THAT IS WHERE THAT WAS AT! I know that I can live with a lot less stuff....I just hate throwing things away I know I will it want later...but I do DO it. Not to mention I have two younger kids that throw things around and don't put them away either. Always circling the house trying to put things in their proper place. And I love the look of minimalism, I just have such a hard time actually carrying out the practice....sigh. I think our 1100 sq ft ranch is small (the layout is like a mobile home) I can't even fathom only having 900 sq ft! Also I filled my FIL's empty room with things...things I haven't went back for in THREE years.....I sometimes hope that he threw it all out...but am too afraid to ask. I put them there because we were trying to sell this house and I couldn't part with them but had to get them out of prospective buyers eyes. I've painted my house three times in 9 years just so I will have to declutter everything. As you can see by this long post, that this is a long time battle I have been having with myself! Oddly enough, the day you wrote this post...I was beginning my spring declutter/ neatening of cupboards. I got one full upper cabinet in the kitchen, one lower, and most of my computer desk. I felt very proud. Next up will be my bedroom, gulp the worst room in my house....also the smallest at only about 80 sq. feet (yah you read that right)...I can hop in bed and get to my dresser but forget about finding anything in there or my closet! And under my bed, let's not talk about that until I get under there. And as for the THREE junk drawers in the kitchen....what to do what to do.....I need more organization, that is all there is to it. Sooooooo, I'm right there with you and feel your pain. I really don't mind cleaning, I just hate de cluttering but do it because I would HATE myself if I didn't. As for the yard, I'm really super good with that. All that room! Wide open spaces! Plus, I like to pull weeds. Those I have NO problems throwing away! lol! I"m going to try to upload videos to YouTube of last years of that....I'll post if I get it. S
  8. IA. I can't wait to play today. I want to see if I have any flowers that have hybridized. I keep trying like a dickens, but no luck yet. The doing the whole town in a pattern seems to be a waste (because there is always three of us wanting to play). I'm just gonna keep planting and hope for the best......OH and I got a dandelion in my town...patiently waiting for it to turn into a pufball! S

    Memory test

    I got most of them right......I actually had more trouble reading the right line than getting the answer right.....my eyes are a' swimmin S
  11. Hmmm, I think that is creepy too! I don't think I could stay in there with her she reminds me of a crime drama mummy (not that I was invited)! Weirdest thing I have....well does an urn count? That freaks quite a few people out, I often hear "Is that real????"....but I think it's normal to have grandma here with me all the time. S
  12. GRRRR. I did not know that! S
  13. Yes, and a window open with a fan sucking more out
  14. Don't you hate it when your children literally fight all day long about nothing..... And don't you love it later in the evening when they are all curled up next to you and eachother saying 'I love you mommy' as they drift off to sleep..... S
  15. I do that too! That is my destresser! Weeding is good too though....waiting for it to get warm, grr.....how come the weeds are up but my flowers aren't? arg. S
