    Half scale bed

    That is one fabulous bed!
  2. Wonderful! Your skellies look so pleased with their house.
  3. Keystone, from 1949, maybe: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/vintage-1949-keystone-boston-masonite-472564594
  4. This is probably my favorite room! Quite liking that arch at the head of the bed -- and that bed. And Sir's clock in the right-hand foreground -- I wonder where he might have salvaged that from . . .
  5. Beautiful! You've inspired me to try to find my punch needle.

    I like how worked that Schopper stove in. I have that same stove, but it'll be a while until it's usable -- I got mine from someone who broke off all the knobs, handles, feet, and stovepipe.
  7. You must have the nicest junk pile . . .
  8. Super-cute house! You did such a nice job on everything.
  9. Those are lovely! Who'd have thought scraps could be made to look so nice?
  10. Ooh, that does look like a Keystone, and just like this blue-roofed one from the mid-1940s: https://my-vintage-dollhouses.blogspot.com/2017/07/my-37th-keystone-of-boston-dollhouse.html As for its value, if I had a Keystone, it would be priceless since I would never ever sell it ;-) Is it in good condition inside? Looks good on the outside.
  11. Can't get to it for photos, but I can tell you what's happened to the barn -- bars on the windows are gone, as are the sliding doors on the front (to give better access); paint-stirrers have been glued down for new upstairs flooring and ship-lap style room dividers; furniture is mostly from Barbie and Madeline sets, since they're the closest to the right scale.
  12. I'd have been embarrassed to show it. Started taking it apart last night to try again. Thank you for the suggestion on method.
  13. That house is fabulous! I'm sure your sister will enjoy showing off your hard work.
  14. Rupert is quite handsome. I hope he was helpful.
  15. There was a Barnabas Collins game? How did I miss this as a child . . .
  16. Love that crazy quilt! My tiny patchwork piecing came out all wonky -- maybe because it really wants to be a crazy quilt, but I wasn't listening.
  17. Thank you all for the welcome. I've been flipping through the gallery and marveling at all the fabulous talent on this forum. I'm not an artisan, but I do enjoying making minis.
  18. Hello everyone. I'm T. Great site here! My first dollhouse was a Keystone, handed down from older siblings. The first house I built was the Lafayette -- which led to a Primrose, which led to a Buttercup, which led to an Orchid. I've also converted a Breyer barn to a house for Hattie and Boone Furskin, repaired a floor-model Duracraft Pioneer cabin, and am working on chunky, child-proof furniture for a Ryan's Room house. Most of the other furniture in my petite properties are kit-made. Eventually, I'll post photos. Thanks for letting me take part -- T
