  1. Hi All, I know I haven't been around in a long time, but I just came across this post on Emily Henderson's blog and knew it would interest some of you. She is hosting a challenge for decorating a dollhouse. I wish I had the time to do it but I'm still working on my real life miniature and doing things her speed right now. And a 2.5 year old speed is not quite ready for decorating a dollhouse (at least not to show someone). When I let her play with them now all the furniture ends up broken or in one room. It isn't pretty. Anyway, here is the link, http://www.stylebyemilyhenderson.com/blog
  2. Great news, Heidi! I'm happy he is doing better.
  3. You can also go to an office supply store and buy overhead projector sheets. Some go through the printer if you want to print anything on them.
  4. Another thing we are hoping to get my daughter for Christmas is an art easel. She is just starting to like to do painting, coloring and such and I want a space where she can stand and paint. I think my parents are going to get her one for Christmas since they had bought my nephew one around this age as well.
  5. What a great find! I love the Pierce. It would be amazing to bash them together. Can't wait to see what you do with them.
  6. My 21-month-old loves her kitchen set (but they are expensive we got lucky and took it from a neighbor who had it out for recycling). She also loves her table and chairs and shopping cart. She loves to push anything around--shopping cart, doll stroller, cars, etc. The other thing I found very helpful was the Sesame Street doctor kit. We have been practicing going to the doctor and she isn't as bad when I bring her during the examination. She also loves the FP Little People. We got her the house and someone gave her the school bus last Christmas. She likes to pile all the people in and play the

    Hi All! I'm just checking back in and found 58 pages of new posts. Needless to say I don't have time to read them all, but am happy to report I snuck some time in the other day to work on my Brookwood. I have decided on giving it a completely different exterior than I originally planned, but am happy with it. In the mean time, I work on my real life mini and have included a picture. She will be 21 months tomorrow and is already very interested in my dollhouses and minis. Well that is all for now, but I will try to check back in more often and hopefully finish up my Brookwood.

    Thanks, everyone!
  10. The one in Framingham definitely is. I went to it many years ago, but was sad to see it closed a while back.
  11. There is also one in Danvers, MA. I believe it is called Den of Antiquity. It is small but very crowded with lots of choices.

    Hi Everyone, I haven't been on here in so long, but thought I would check in. I know I see a bunch of you on facebook as well. I haven't been able to work on my dollhouses since Hazel's birth, but she is doing well. She turned 15 months last week. I'm including a picture. Hope all is well with everyone! Carrie
  13. Congratulations, Jen!! It is beautiful!
  14. You did a wonderful job! Now I'm ready for my trip to the Cape next week. Thanks for sharing!!
  15. Oh, Peachie, I hope you have a very speedy recovery and that you are all fixed now!! I'll keep you in my prayers. Can't wait to see your Laurel. Enjoy!!
  16. Thanks, Everyone!! We are really enjoying her. And we know how lucky we are to have such a wonderful baby. She usually even sleeps through the night and has for a couple of months. No, Kate just asked me that as well. The truth is I'll be at my great aunt's 95th birthday party that day in Rhode Island. I figured it will probably be one of the only times my aunt gets to meet Hazel. I've always been very close with this aunt--she has been like a grandmother to me especially since her sister (my grandmother) died when I was young.
  17. Hi, Everyone!! I've been a little busy and haven't worked on my dollhouses in ages and haven't been on here in ages, but wanted to stop by and say hi. Here is a recent picture of Hazel. She is almost 5 months now. Hope all is well with everyone!!
  18. I would also dry fit the chimney first so you can see how it all fits together. Someone gave me this advice before I built it and I really appreciated it.
  19. I just ordered mine. It is my early birthday gift--my birthday is in August. Now if I can just find time to work on my dollhouses. Oh, well my real life mini takes my time right now and she is well worth it.
  20. I'm surprised they are putting it in your store, Heidi. They are taking them out here. We have had them for awhile, but I think they figured out people were stealing things.
  21. I basically cut as I went the best I could. I used my EZ cutter or a pair of sharp scissors. Although they did split sometimes, I found the scissors a bit easier. Good luck!!
  22. I got mine yesterday and put it together last night. I'm not sure I will enter it this year since I don't have much time with the new baby, but it goes together very easily. The hard part is figuring out what to do with it and how to finish it. Good luck to everyone who plans to enter this year. I can't wait to see what people come up with.
  23. Congratulations to both of you!! Both of your houses are beautifully done!
  24. I was 21 inches and I'm only 5'3" well actually 5'3.25" (I grew a quarter of an inch last year.). Since both Steve and I are on the shorter side, I'm expecting her to be stuck with my lack of height. Thank you everyone!! The good news is the jaundice is gone!! Now to deal with the yeast problems. It is always something.
  25. Congratulations!! He is gorgeous!!
