  1. Havanaholly, thank you for posting this. The room is amazing! It looks so real and lived in. All of these houses, rooms and vignettes tell stories, don't they? I love that.
  2. Elsbeth, Thank you so much. Someone else recommended this book so it must be good. I'm going to see if my library can get it for me.
  3. Elsbeth, Thank you. This home is wonderful. It's so homey and the details are amazing. I love the afghan!
  4. Havanaholly, How kind of you! I would love that and keep that in mind. Same goes to you. I live near Seattle, WA.

    Thanks, Rbytsdy. I bought my first dollhouse already assembled from Hobby Lobby. I was too intimidated to try to assemble a dollhouse myself. RGT says to assemble with tacky glue and never with hot glue. However, it appears to me that my house was assembled with hot glue. So far, all is well but I fear that someday I will need to do some rehab. I used tacky glue on the addition, which I assembled, myself. Now that I've done that and gotten some confidence, l will assemble my next house, myself.
  6. Havanaholly, I love the farmhouse! It's very evocative of the era.
  7. Havanaholly, It's beautiful. I love the front yard!

    Newberg is done!

    Your house is beautiful!
  9. Havanaholly, This is so interesting! I would love to see photos of your pre-WWII house, if you're willing to share. I have a number of specific ideas of what I want in my house but I'm doing a lot of research to make sure it's (mostly) period authentic and filled in nicely. " I want mine to be very colorful with the light wood pre-mid-century modern type of furniture. I'm going to use a small house and set it up for a single woman's home. Ha! I have a whole back-story for the "owner-family" of my c 1915 house and for my future c1945 house. I don't think I could have furnished and decorated it without the back-story. (Am I the only one who does that?) I love being inspired by what other people are doing.

    Rbytsdy, I'm so sorry to hear that. My house is a Real Good Toys house. I believe it is made of MDF! Is that why Greenleaf uses plywood? The MDF is so strong and accepts paint so easily and beautifully, I thought it would be superior. but I have a lot to learn. I'd love to hear your thoughts as I'm a beginner and planning to buy another (my second) dollhouse soon.
  11. Havanaholly, I just joined the NAME Facebook page and am finding out first-hand how welcoming and encouraging everyone is. I look forward to meeting those in my area and, maybe someday, traveling to meet others like you have. Thanks!
  12. I'm a little confused on how the technology works on the forum. Mid-life madness, thank you so much for recommending NAME! I joined the Facebook group and have been very warmly welcomed! I love it and love seeing what everyone is doing.
  13. Thank you so much! I will check it out.
  14. Thanks. I will. Wow! Old books are really expensive. I'm really excited to borrow this book, if the Library can get it for me.
  15. Thanks. I've been checking Pinterest and Google and have a lot of images posted to refer to as I go along.
