    Thank you, everyone, for replying. I'm so sorry for the bad experiences you have had. I have just joined NAME and their Facebook page. There is no local chapter near my home but they said I could start one and have been really supportive. I'm not particularly interested in their events but would very much like to connect in person with other miniature enthusiasts. If I can get 5 interested people for a club in Tacoma, WA, I can start the local club. If I do, everyone will be made to feel welcome! If any of you are interested, please let me know. I noticed that one group is still meeting - outdoors, six feet apart and wearing masks. I love that!
  2. Are any of you members of N.A.M.E. (National Association of Miniature Enthusiasts)? I'm new to dollhouse miniatures and trying to learn about the dollhouse community.
  3. Thank you for this information. What scale are your dollhouses? My dollhouse is 1:12 and I'm trying to figure out how to display it.
  4. This information is very helpful. What scale are your dollhouses?
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Elsbeth, Thank you. This home is wonderful. It's so homey and the details are amazing. I love the afghan!
  8. Havanaholly, How kind of you! I would love that and keep that in mind. Same goes to you. I live near Seattle, WA.

    San Fran - finished!

    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.
  10. Havanaholly, I love the farmhouse! It's very evocative of the era.
  11. Havanaholly, It's beautiful. I love the front yard!

    Newberg is done!

    Your house is beautiful!
  13. 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.
  15. 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!
