Hello -- I'm so glad I found this website, bless Google's little Mini heart
I have been fascinated with miniatures since childhood, and was well into adulthood before I realized it was a recognized hobby and I didn't have to hide my weirdness! (We all know miniaturists think WAY outside the box!)
I've never had the joy of making a real dollhouse; but have made many roomboxes, TeaCup Scenes, a bookcase dollhouse, and am now working on a "house" set in my garden window. That's really outside the "box" -- since it is all set in glass. Lots of interesting challenges!
Allyn Washington is my home town (after moving around most of my life!) and if anyone actually knows where that is I would love to hear from you!
Looking forward to learning a lot from all of you --
