  1. Suzi!!! So so happy you wrote back, I was worried you’d never see my message...well the house arrived yesterday, and I take it you have seen it personally? Words cannot describe this house, its not only huge but absolutely breathtaking! I can’t stop looking at it. It must have taken years to build, I have never seen a dollhouse so lifelike and intricate before. Its a very interesting story how I “met’ Liz. I reside in Greece during the winter months and one night, as I was enduring a red-eye all nighter while caring for my terminally ill grandmother in the hospital, I stumble upon Liz and
  2. Thanks so much ladies!! I am absolutely thrilled with it, and it is larger than I thought! The nuns are not mine, these are stock photos before I bought the dollhouse. Never have a seen a more elaborate dollhouse, it is, and I kid you not, a mini version of a real house, and I will post more pics soon. For anyone else interested, here is another article about these houses!https://www.deseret.com/1988/12/11/18787633/have-yourself-a-little-merry-christmas
  3. Okay Everyone, please share. What is a dollhouse(es) that you absolutely fell in love with, had to have, but for some reason or the other (lose a bid, seller gave it to someone else, or simply it was too expensive or too far) never acquired it? One of mine was an absolutely gorgeous yellow Garfield aptly named “The Yellow Rose Inn” that was fully and very beautifully furnished for a very reasonable 500. However I was out of the country and begged the seller to keep it for me for a few weeks until I got back, even offering her more money. Sadly she needed to clear the room of it pronto and s
  4. I have been incredibly lucky and blessed that I have acquired quite a collection... a custom built Beacon Hill, a Garfield, a Willowcrest, a Lily, Brimbles’ Mechantile, The Lawbre Glen Cove Villa (my favorite, along with my Beacon Hill) The Lawbre Shadowcliff, The Lawbre French Country House, plus an original Elliot Bay house by Ron Clanton. Plus, I have three Jubilee English shoppes.I must admit though, the only house I really really want to put the finishing touch to my collection is...drumroll please...The Grosvenor!!! But its incredibly hard to find here in the United States. Island-Sha
  5. The interior is “so” realistic. hardware floors, lighting, and a built in laundry room. The seller was a complete doll, added extras such as chandeliers and curtains as well!
  6. Wow, finally got the hang of this! And yes, the tree and zoo animals were included in the sale too :-)
  7. Averyfinewoman, I am terribly sorry I have not responded back, but I cannot, for the life of me, paste and post my Elliot Bay House by Ron Clanton on this page, despite my efforts! (I cant “respond” under your comment either, lots to still learn on this site!) I think we are talking about the same gal in Utah, because it was she who sold me the dollhouse, and as a matter of fact it is finally being shipped out, I am supposed to get it this week!!! I was out of the country and she very graciously kept it for me all these Covid months while I finally made it back. I am trying to post it now f
  8. Thanks to everyone SO MUCH for all this information about dollhouse maker Ron Clanton. I am in the process of also buying a house of his, The Elliot Bay House, started googling to find out more info about him, and much to my delight was diverted onto my beloved Greenleaf Community site! Congrats so much Suzi on your purchase it is truly a work of art, and I will be posting pics of my own masterpiece as well!
  9. I have bought from fjdebbie before on ebay, and am very sad to hear that Bespaq is going out of business, thankfully I have bought quite a bit. Its sad when the heirs just are not interested in continuing something loved and cherished anymore. I can imagine what a demand they will have now, it will be like Black Friday every time a Bespaq item comes for bidding on ebay, but they are also many private sellers that sell Bespaq too. I am feeling a little wistful now....
  10. Oh Gina...I just don't know where to start on my dolhouse obsession, trying not only to explain it but to track every milestone and memory! It all started about ten years ago when i just wanted to build (or buy) a sweet little Beacon Hill and furnish it. Thats all, nine rooms, and it would be the pride and joy, the crowing glory of my foyer of the house we were building. Then I got pregnant and put it off until my daughter (and child number 3) was old enough to understand and not get in every little piece. I said I would allot 100 to 150 bucks to furnigsh every room, which in retrospect se
  11. Yes, you're right, HUGE help! Thanks so much!!!
  12. You are right, thank you so much! I am glad to be here, believe me!!! Lively bunch on here aren't they? (and BTW "Dollhousers", as I like to call them are the most nicest helopul people on the non 1:12 scale planet!)
  13. Hi Gina! We seem to have plenty of things in common, because I hate electrical wiring too and opted for battery operated lighting on my Beacon Hill even if its a huge pain! I have to learn because I love the idea of just lighting up my dollhouses in an instant! I DID post a pic finally so I am happy for that, seems that some of my pics are less than the required mb's (or whatever the heck they're called!) My Glen Cove doesn't come with the conservatory either, but they WERE selling two of them on ebay just a few weeks ago at reasonable prices but they were snagged up wi
