Real Name

  1. While searching for dollhouse kits locally (which includes my entire state! Woah!) I found somebody selling this already built but (a little) damaged Foxhall Manor by Real Good Toys. The shingles are broken, but terrible so they are coming off. The conservatory was painted a bright yellow so I'm going to both tone It down with some white paint, and place a very high wainscotting trim on the room. On the room It looks like spilled white paint (or maybe? glue). There are broken stairs, rails in the Grand Hall. It looks like real sized carpet was used. All I can see however is T

  3. Next week I'm hoping my Big (Someday Soonish) Beauty will be home, and into my Craft Room ready for me to begin. First it will be sanding down that blue paint, taking a good primer to recover it or possibly a nice textured spray paint with the trim tapped off with some nice blue painting tape to protect the areas that I want to (for now) keep white. Then those shingles need to come off. Human sized carpeting is the next to go. Then some sanding that yellow Conservatory. A whitewash to help, and later tall wainscotting. Choosing between dusky lavender and a dusky rose pink for
  4. I have been making modern miniature furniture for the past 25 years (I was one of the first to specialise in modern miniatures) and our company, ELF Miniatures, has clients all over the world. Yet we regularly get emails from people who have only just discovered our website....so I thought it might be an idea to share our URL for anyone who isn't familiar with what we do, but is interested in modern minis. You can find us here http://www.elfminiatures.co.uk/. I do custom orders, but also produce loads of kits, which are very popular too. We feature lots of our clients' photos of their fini

    Just a very small update on the Beacon Hill, unfortunately my restoration work has been taking most of my time and left very little oportunity to work on my hobbies, but I do hope to catch up later this year. The construction pieces are mostly sorted and prepared, but I'd rather work on the assembly when I have time to regularly check on it. In the meantime I've worked on this set of chairs and table for the dinning room, bought them separately in raw wood but I think the design ended up matching quite well. Here's a little furniture test for the Beacon Hill parlour area, I'm happy the modific

    Bunny Bear - 1

    From the album: Mini purchases

    Just showing off my precious Bunny Bear. I bought her at the recent local miniature show. She is sooo adorable, I love her! (I've decided she's a "her" because she has floral fabric on her paws? feet? Whatever... they're cute what ever they are.) I've decided to call her April.
  7. From the album: Mini purchases

    Finally got around to taking some pictures of my Sunstar Morris Minor. Upstairs Guy and Girl are pretty proud of it. I chose the lilac 1,000,000th edition because it seems like a colour a woman of independent means and slight eccentricity would have chosen in 1960's San Francisco. "The Great Aunt purchased it in 1961, when it was released in only one colour (lilac) to celebrate the 1 millionth morris rolling off the assembly line. It's sat under covers in the garage since she stopped driving in her early 80's."

    The progress on the exterior so far. I had a few days off so I tried to get as much work done on the structure as possible, I'm happy it's finally starting to look like a house I'm currently working on the rest of the windows, because I'm using diferent colors it takes a really long time as I have to paint the trims before assembling. When I'm done I'll wallpapper the rest of the house, add the windows and remaining sinding, and then resume work on the interiors. The dormer windows.... are a real headache to put together. I'm not quite sure how I'm going to do it so that I can get a
  9. From the album: ~ Beacon Hill ~

    I wanted to test the color I had picked for the siding, I was undecided between this dark magenta or dark plum. I thought the plum might have looked too dark for what I had in mind, but seeing this color in direct light it's a lot brighter than I expected. Thoughts? This is the color scheme I got inspiration from.
  10. Hi, I'm trying to build the third floor but I ran into a problem. See the red underline on the instruction sheet, I can't find the piece with that name in sheet 19. The only 2 chimney pieces on that sheet have diferent names, but the instructions say "left chimney trim" which one is it? Maybe I'm just blind but I've been searching through the sheets and I can't seam to find it. If you have built this house and have a picture of this piece or remember the shape of it please let me know! I have the third floor in dry fit but can't assemble the chimney until I solve this

    I've finished the 1st floor stairs and wired the corridor lights. The pedistal was tricky but I'm glad I managed to hide the wires under the floor. I've stained the baseboards, but I'm still thinking I might try the wainscot panels later. I really like the look of this room, I've picked the wallpapper for the corridor upstairs in green + red colors, I think it will go well with this look. I have glued the tower front wall in so now I can finally start building the third floor and ceiling, lots of work ahead but at least 1 floor is done!
  12. From the album: ~ Beacon Hill ~

    A small change to this room, I added a ceiling rose to the center because after adding the chandelier I kept feeling it was missing something. I've also trimed the doorway interior, so I'm nearly done with this floor and hopefully I'll get started on the exterior soon
  13. From the album: ~ Beacon Hill ~

    Sorry for the bad quality and poor light conditions. I am almost done with the corridor, need to finish decorating the stairs and add the last rail by the starting steps. The baseboards haven't been glued yet, I was thinking about doing wainscot here but I'm afraid it might make the room look too dark. The ceiling pannels are stained basswood, I assembled them the same way I did with the wall pannels. There is a hole at the mid center to add a chandelier, I will be wiring the lights soon and hopefuly then I'll manage to get a better picture of the details. The pedistal lamp is from artist Jim

    The shoe detail is lovely, they even have tiny little buckle detail & labels inside like real shoes. Could the brand name be any more adorable "Mini Choos"... Get it? The bag has lovely trim detail. It also opens, with a magnet clasp. Inside it even has a little side pocket. I assume for a miniature mobile phone? lol
  15. From the album: ~ Beacon Hill ~

    This room is a pain to photograph, poor natural light and not a lot of space availiable to move the house around at the moment... the light fixtures don't help much in this case but at least they are working lol. I'll try to get some decent shots when I move on to the hallway... so many components to glue and paint and so little time ;__; For the panels I tried to go for a color that would look nice with any color furniture, both walnut and mahogany constrast nicely with the walls. Second Empire houses often played with constrast; for this house I'm going with light french inspired c
  16. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    I switched from working on the basement to working on tree foliage today. I recently raided my local Spotlight (for US readers, think cheap homewares/fabric/craft store combined). I found some plastic foliage sprays that I thought might be kind of in scale for leaves for the San Franciscan tree. I deconstructed the sprays into "branches" of leaves. They were overly forest green so I sprayed them with some more subtle shades before testing them out on the tree. More work needed by I think they might be satisfactory in the end. The tenant is trying to catch/tease Skittle the Squirrel...
  17. Good Morning! I just wanted to share a link to the Shapeways shop I opened over the weekend. I have 3D printed Kitchen Miniature Sets available currently with more products coming soon!

    Meet Skittle.. he's the resident squirrel in the San Franciscan's tree. I picked him up back in August from IGMA artist Teensyweensy13 on Ebay. He is one of the pieces she used to get certified as IGMA and he is adorable. He has a lovely expressive face and his head even turns for cheeky poses. You can see more of him on my blog

  20. I'm wondering if the flower/plant makers among us would know the best paper punches to use to make flowers and leaves with. I've read that punch bunch makes some good ones but they have several sizes and I'm not sure which to go with. Are the mini size or the small size better. Also for larger leaf plants such as ferns should I go with a medium punch. Also with flowers, should I layer a mini punch flower on top of a small punch flower for variation? If anyone with expertise can point me in the right direction I'd be much appreciative. In particular I want to make some geraniums for w

    I got back to work on the Beacon Hill, health issues forced me to take a break, then shortly after leaving the hospital I incapacitated my right hand and couldn't work on my crafts for a while... but I'm excited to get back to work and trying to finish up the kitchen area Working on the floor at the moment, I really like how the walls turned out.. tiles will follow the same color scheme: green, yellow, white, brown.
  22. From the album: ~ Beacon Hill ~

    I'm trying to pick up the pace on the construction of the Beacon Hill, it's been slow so far but I finally began gluing the house together and can now move on to the design choices for my interiors. I had to order new doors for the house since the ones from my kit were damaged (bad plywood surface), got pre-built ones to save costs (wood + hinges) but in turn I had to modify the openings for them to fit (if you ever plan on building this house: test the doors before you glue the walls in!). I've also modified the walls in this area: changed the position of the 'kitchen' door, drilled in new ta
  23. From the album: ~ Beacon Hill ~

    Ceiling is up, needs retouching here and there but my arm must get some rest lol. Now I must cut templates for the bay windows and start working on the pannels. The fireplace will be on that wall (+ 2 wall lights surrounding it), I think I'll leave a wall socket on the opposite side of the room for a floor/table lamp.
  24. From the album: ~ Beacon Hill ~

    I have attached the modified walls and wallpapered the rest of the corridor. I'm still working on the staircase trims, the final color will be the dark mahogany you see in the picture, I am thinking about doing the same for the doors. The living room and dinning room will be combined together in the same room, with this mod the room is now big enough to acomodate a seating area + a 6 seat table and chairs. I've primed the walls of this room in a dark color because they will be covered by wood pannels, not wallpaper. I've decided to try spackle, first time working with this ma
  25. From the album: ~ Beacon Hill ~

    Preparing the kitchen, need to finish the ceiling before I can move on to the woodwork. As I've mentioned in the Beacon Hill Builders thread, I felt very inspired by this kitchen so those are the colors I will use. I won't use cabinets thou, will try a period style this time ;)
