  1. I'd LOVE to have any 1:48 scale kits you have. IF you still have them. I'd be HAPPY to pay for the shipping too. Pat
  2. 1:48-scale Hawaiian house circa late 1940's on Oahu where my parents lived during the War while my father worked as a welder in the shipyard at Pearl Harbor. That's my father's photo wearing a grass skirt on top of the tall cabinet in the bedroom. The little Hawaiian girl down on the grass in front is made my Ethel Hicks. The little outrigger canoe was actually a keychain that a friend in Hawaii sent me months ago. This measures about 13" wide at the base, 9" deep and 12" tall
  3. People who love cats would live in it. Funny thing is I never even thought to include people with the house - just the cats. LOTS of cats. Still one of my favorite builds too.
  4. That's a very cute dollhouse Tillie. Sweet pastel colors. The style reminds me of the Nevada Cat House I did for the Humane Society's 'Silent Auction' a few years ago. I'd come across a sturdy dollhouse kit at a local thrift store and even though I didn't really want another big dollhouse, with a price of something like $50 for it I couldn't pass it up. It was a fun build and I got to make tons of special furniture pieces with cat themes for it. SO MUCH FUN. The trouble with dollhouses is you run out of ROOM!
  5. Well when our kids shove us into old folks homes we'll be content trying to make minis out of what others see as junk. I honestly do think that seeing treasures in the trash is a joy and most people don't take the time or have the interest in it. How lucky are we?!
  6. That's a grand idea. This way you can open the whole thing up to admire all the tiny details inside the store. Don't you find that part of the delight is remembering how fun it was to MAKE all of the tiny extras - the things that most people's eyes don't even catch? This morning I was trying to figure out how to make some Christmas-themed bakery boxes, first checking out eBay to maybe purchase them. Nah - they charge a LOT for just two tiny boxes. So I can't wait to experiment making my own today. And years from now looking at them will bring a smile.
  7. Oh my gosh - who'da thunk'a that!!! They're so perfect! Where do you display your houses and room boxes Tillie? I'm JUST starting on my Christmas Bake Shop and as big as the room box I have is, I wish I would have room for even more! I'm using one of those 'Street Of Shops' rooms boxes for the shop but I'm thinking I might need to cut an opening in the side and build another shop (the smaller of the three shops) right next to it for seating and MORE STUFF...
  8. Thanks for asking Holly. The little fruits in the fruit bowl (on the buffet in dining area) are made from Sculpey clay and what I hoped would look like the grapes are just micro beads glued to some thread. The 'sunflowers' in the planter on the side of the building are actually dried flowers from some 'volunteer' plants I was yanking out as I was cleaning the yard outside. I was going to toss them into the garbage can when I realized they looked sort of like little sunflowers! They were dried out and brown by this point but a little craft paint was all it took. What are supposed to look l
  9. Finished the little things to complete the Hippie House - doodahs and geegaws that I usually forget. The little bicycles on the porch are actually 'embellishments' by the Jesse James 'Dress it Up' line.
  10. Hee hee - Tillie I was actually just thinking about things that YOU might like. I don't own one bit of white/blue minis. I'm working on a Christmas Bake Shop right now...
  11. Well - those would look really nice.
  12. that's another great suggestion.
  13. Holly - I've been looking for a chair 'kit' that would make a chair like this with all that rich wood carving but I can't find one. Have you ever seen a 'kit' for one? I see the House Of Miniatures kit for a nice chair but it doesn't have that beautiful carving.
  14. That candle holder is so perfect. You could print out some fun fabric to cover a chair and maybe even footstool with. You're going to have so much fun collecting all the bits and pieces for this. The 'hunt' is part of the fun!
  15. The Great Wall of China - PERFECT! What joy this must bring you.
