  1. If anyone remembers this post from YEARS ago.... ( I was looking for other information and came across this) The short story from the very LONG saga is that the mother was most of the problem. She told A LOT of lies, which she taught the children and the father was no special treat himself. They are now divorced. So much BS went on that i disowned her and will never talk to her again. The boy is now a "grown man" and still has so many issues, but is also a constant liar so we do not talk either. Its a long sad story of woe and what I believe might be some bipolar issues, narcissism, etc. The mom even faked a suicide attempt at one point to get the attention of a boyfriend.
  2. Hello Wonderful Dollhouse/Mini friends, some old and new names! I've been away for a bit and just recently began FINALLYYYY getting back into minis. As you can see form my pic I was a Garfield owner. I have to give her up when I moved a few years back and am still very sad about that... but we all have to move on from stuff. I started a "Bookshelf" dollhouse recently. Thought I'd pop over here to say hi again and saw a bunch of friends still active. Going to start being active again in the forum little by little.
  3. Thanks! I just moved it from my bedroom to a squished corner so I could have more space. I didn't think to take new pics of it then. I will take it "apart" again soon adn take photos. Yours looks great too. I love how you added to the Garfield!! I always wanted the Garage with working door for mine.
  4. Yes along the lines of what I was thinking.Just no time for that currently. Keeping all my furniture and other DH supplies.
  5. Thanks Tracy!! Because it is not a "solid" house (built in sections so it could be taken apart to fit through standard doors) It wouldn't be a good idea for children. I don't think I am going to build anymore houses. I'm looking into doing a "dollhouse" in a bookcase or something like that.
  6. I'd probably have to take pics of it to explain it best, but I'll try... When I put the base of the house together I did not glue the rest of the house to it, so there is one part. I figured that was the biggest part so if that was separate I could fit it through a doorway if I had it sideways rather than flat. The back part of the house (Kitchen, bedroom above and attic area above that) are the second section. The front part of the house (living room, dining area, master bedroom/bathroom above, and attic area) are all the biggest section and that fits through a normal door way. The two house pieces fit back into the slots on the base to look well when put together. The roof sections are not too bad either, I have two big sections, plus the porch sections of roof, and they help hold the house together also. Hope that helps! lol I never did take pictures of it apart, but if anyone inquires about it from a purchasing standpoint I will take and post them here also.
  7. looks like it was done for me. Sorry for putting my post in the wrong place. The Garfield is waiting patiently for it's new home...
  8. Thanks!! I searched but nothing came up so I assumed it was deleted!
  9. I posted earlier today, but it looks like it was deleted. My post about looking for a new home for my neglected Garfield and had a link to a Craigslist post. I know it's been a while since I was on the forum, but was my post not allowed...?? Why was it deleted without even a note to tell me? Confused....
  10. Hello Dollhouse enthusiasts! I have not posted in quite a long time..... I am finding myself in a "pickle". I built my Garfield around 2006 and LOVED every minute of it. Posted lots of pics and met wonderful people on the forum and got amazing advice from experienced builders. I have gone through many changes in my life since then and the Garfield has moved with me from NJ to FL and 3 apartments since then. Unfortunately, the beautiful house takes up so much space and I find I don't have much left in our small apartment. I am hoping to find someone who can give "her" a new home. I placed a listing on Craigslist here: http://tampa.craigslist.org/psc/art/3044931466.html. I am located near Tampa, FL. If anyone is interested feel free to contact me through the Craig's list ad. I see that most of the pics in my old posts are gone, but still a couple in my gallery. I can also send more pics either current of from when I was building it. Thanks everyone! Jaimie
  11. I haven't been here in a while so I'm forgetting where to list this. Feel free to move to correct place (Thanks!) I have a BUNCH of mags on eBay ENDING in about 4-5 hours. Many Vintage Nutshell News and American Miniaturists from 2004-2006. Come take a look. http://shop.ebay.com/merchant/jmarvon THANKS!!

  14. Hi friends. I saw the post and I wanted to chime in about this topic. Not that I know alot about the subject, just that I've had some experience in it. My grandmother had some sort of Alz/demitia. Not sure which, I don't think she was ever truly dianosed. She was about only about 55-60 when it started around 1985. I was only 15 at the time. Unfortunatly at the beginning stages our family was all dealing with my aunt (her daughter/mom's younger sister) who got sick and diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. My aunt rapidly got worse and died within 4-6 months. I don't know if this traumatic even helpeed trigger her disease or not. Less than 2 yrs after that Grandpa moved them down to FL to retire. She was practically cut off from her family. My mom and her remaining sister and brother didn't really know what was going on because he never told anyone or asked for help. He took care of her for the most part and My mom and aunt came down and tried a to help take her to drs and stuff. In the early 90's I moved to FL and actualy lived with them for a while. I was about 19-20 at the time. That was a very difficult time for me. Grandma didn't know who I was. According the nurse at her "adult day care".. the theory was I was just some woman in her husband's home. Grandma would pace in the from hall between the front door, living rooma dn hallway to the bedrooms. When I tried to walk around the house she would run at me and litterally PUNCH me, just once and walk away, then start pacing again. I had friends that would come to the house and she did it in front of them too. The strange part was if it was a MALE friend... she KNEW WHO I WAS!! She would walk over and put her arms on my tell them "This is my grandaughter. I lover her." Grandpa being the a** that he was (not ever seeing it happen) basically called me a liar. My grandfather is a stouborn A** of a man who has had "outs" with all of his children for LONG periods of time. When the HIPPA laws came into effect Grandma was in a nursing home. He quickly took advantage of it put a stop to any and all family being able to call to find out how she was doing, being that we were all in NJ. The last time I saw my grandmother was over 4 years ago. I was visiting my cousin in Orlando FL. I rented a car and drove 2 hours in pouring rain to go see her. She was so thin from not eating (I remember her bast a a short portly woman), but the nurses told me that her "health" was decent. My Grandmother passed away last year after over 20 years of the "disease". I wasn't told about it until almost a week later. There was no service for her. About 9 months later my grandfather showed up at my mother's house on a Sunday afternoon. He was in their driveway when they came home from church. After about 10 years of not speaking to my mom (for what ever assinine reason of his) he finally decided that "life is too short" to not speak to them any more. My mother says sh has put it all behind adn "forgiven" him. I cannot imagine doing that. I see him at her house occasionally and the only thing wrong with him that I can tell is his hearing. June was the anniversary of her death and they met at the Naval Cementary for a brief "memorial" of sorts. My Mom didn't invite me .. probably becasue she knew I'd be way to mad at him to be able to grieve properly for my grandmother. By the way my father's mother has it as well. She is still alive and in a nursing home in upstate NY. She had 11 children and over 50 grand and great-grandchildren. The last time I saw her with a bit of her faculties she looked me and said "Which one are you?" when I said "Hello Grandma." Kind of makes me chuckle only because I think any grandmother withthat many grandchildren might have said hte same thing! It was about 5 years ago. I have seen her since then and she has gotten much worse. So I have it on both sides. I wonder if it skips a generation??? What is the chance that I will have it? My mother is now around tha age whne HER mother started showing signs. I've asked her on many occasions if she hasever looked into testing for signs of it in her and she change the subject. Sorry. Probably not what anyone wanted to read as it isn't very informative and not helpful at all. But I really needed to "say" it. I've had no one to talk to about any of this for 20 years. I was too young when it started and time had gone by for so long without having contact we were all left to deal with it on our own. I've cried through writing this whole post and feel a bit like I've done some grieving.. so thank you for reading...and good luck to you. I wish you all the best.
  15. ok, so I've been "missing in action" for a while but I watched CSI tonight and HAD to come here to fnid out what everybody is saying. I've surprised there aren't more comments. I thought the episode was great. I can't wait until next week. I missed the trailer. It didn't record. I'll just have to wait. Hope all my Mini friends are doing well. So many things to do and not enough time in LIFE to have much fun, especially for mini time. I have really missed chatting wiht everyone and playine with my DH. I'll get back to it soon I hope. Life really will settle down eventually.
