  1. Hi everybody, Read through everyone's posts and glad to hear some of you are doing well, and for those who are having a hard time my thoughts and prayers are with you. Here in northwestern CT we're just trying to stay safe, I think our 'stay-at-home' orders end May 20. Not sure, just keep reading that is the date the governor has issued for the kids to go back to school. I'm very glad to have this forum back up and running, thank you Dean!! Coming here to the Greenleaf forum is a much needed escape from everything else going on out there and it is always nice to see and hear from familiar people (even though I don't post much I always lurk) Nice to see you all again!!
  2. Thank you, Miranda, for posting this article. I really enjoyed it and liked seeing how much I related to a lot of what was being written.
  3. I am so glad I came here and told of what I was going through. I thank each and every one of you for your kind thoughts and the advice...I am going to put a little of everyone's suggestions together and see what happens. Again thank you all so much!!
  4. Thank you Sable, I will definitely give this a try. Jeannine, I'm sorry for the loss of your husband...but I think that gives you the right to say you know exactly how I'm feeling And as for this advice I am going to try to remind myself this is a blessing and try to go for it, thank you. Thank you, Holly, I really like the thought of "work your love for your mother into it," I think this will really help me overcome some of my guilt at doing something other than feeling the guilt and remorse. Thank you, Kathie, for this suggestion, I guess I have nothing to lose to just try to start and see what happens. And I have to say, I have keep reminding myself 'One day at a time' so it's always good when someone else reminds me too, thank you.
  5. Hi everyone, My mom passed sort of unexpectedly on 12-26-17. She had cancer but was in the hospital for something else and needed a routine, low risk procedure that was supposedly botched and she bled into her lung and died. So we lost her far sooner than we thought we would. I joined an online grieving forum but I know many here have lost loved ones and like me have used working on miniatures as a stress relief so I thought I'd ask this here. I have run the gamut of feelings, they loop around and around, mostly guilt for not having seen my mom as much as I should have, so the stress and pain has been immense. But I have had this overwhelming desire to work on one of my dollhouses that I haven't touched in over a year. I feel like it is my brain's way of trying to give me a reprieve from the pain. But here's the problem; my guilt says I don't deserve to have a reprieve and I should just keep mourning my mom and feeling guilty. So every time I look at that dollhouse I just want to escape into it and take a break from the pain but a part of me won't let me. Has anyone else here experienced anything like this? Thank you for taking time to read this.
  6. I think this is the one negative I can't get past. So I don't think I'll be making the trip to get this one. Thank you for the advice. :)
  7. Thanks Kelly. I saw that the roof looked a little off but just thought it was a bad angle shot of the house, but that it opens makes sense, thank you for the info. Maybe I'll reconsider this one and just have to make room for it and of course deal with the "really, another one" look from my husband when he sees it...but I know from what I've read here on this forum, that I'm not the only one who gets those looks so I'm in good company.
  8. Oh, that is too funny but true. If it weren't for the shingles I might have given it a little more consideration, but I've removed shingles before and I have to say it isn't one of my favorite things to do.
  9. Hi everyone, It is really hard not to go buy a dollhouse that is only about ten minutes away from me, even though I really, really don't need another one and have no room for any more, but at least the price is stopping me. But, still, I am very curious what this house is. Does anyone know what this house is and who it is made by? https://hartford.craigslist.org/tag/6153355760.html Thanks in advance for any help.
  10. Am I the only one who can't see the image? All I get is a gray box that says, "Sorry, this content no longer available" . Hmm.
  11. Hi Hannah, A couple of years ago there was San Franciscan 555 in rough shape on Craigslist that I wanted so I could refurbish it and my daughter surprised me with it for Christmas. I needed to remove all the trim inside and out. The glue was pretty strong stuff but a heat gun did the job on the outside but it was tough to reach some of the inside trim with it so I used a hot knife to remove all inside trim and it worked better than I thought it would. Hope this helps. Have fun with the refurb, hope we get to see before and after pics
  12. Hi Debra, Checked out your blog, it's great. Took me awhile to figure out how to follow you but I finally got.

    I totally agree. I also miss having the page in the gallery you could go to that had the newest to oldest posted images.
  14. I agree with Cynthia. Maybe you don't need hall or manor. I also like Shadowstone and Ravenwood the most.
