  1. Does anyone know anything about this dollhouse? https://imgur.com/a/yTkPgPo Its owner claims it's over 100 years old and comparable, although different color houses, seem to have sold for around $300 online. Thanks!

    Period Paper1

    From the album: Susan's Dream Beacon Hill

    This is a period paper I found on the Cooper Hewitt Museum site. I had intended to use it "as is", without any color changes, until I found two other things: 1) Another blue wallpaper that definitely had to be blue 2) The matching frieze

    Master Frieze.jpg

    From the album: Susan's Dream Beacon Hill

    You can see why I would not have wanted to use a pastel blue paper and a golden frieze in another room, given this paper & the yellow set. & you will notice how this frieze does have the same dark blue as in the ground of the sidewall, but is primarily very pale, even verging on cream - and yet definitely matches the paper.

    This is the first paper I am using without any changes whatsoever! LOL

    This is color correction for the antique frieze

  7. From the album: Susan's Dream Beacon Hill

    This is a frieze that was made for the paper. It took some doing to find it on the Cooper Hewitt Museum site, since the frieze was correctly catalogued under "Imperial Wallpaper Company", but the sidewall (see? I learned a new word from the site!) was not! While it was perfectly period, if not extremely common, to have a frieze be a markedly different color from a sidewall, while adhering to the same pattern scheme, I didn't really like it for the paper - and the last thing I needed was a light gold frieze in the same house with a yellow & gold one!

    Brick surround for the back of the stove, wallpaper, and ceiling paper all in place on the ground floor. Stairway is just setting there; not installed yet.

    LOOK WHAT I FOUND! I was browsing the Internet last night, trying to find something to date the flooring and/or wallpaper, when I found this picture. It didn't have an exact date on it, but was shown with other dollhouse styles around 1906. Almost identical to mine!

    I carefully removed all the curtains (8 windows) and washed them. Put them to soak in a pan of warm sudsy water - by the third washing the water was clean! Placed them all on this drying rack overnight.

    This will be Momma's room. (haven't found a daddy doll so I guess he'll just have to on a trip.)

    I came across this advertisement for a dollhouse from 1906. Looks pretty close to the Appleby and could well be the inspiration for this homemade house.

    Before I get too far along on this project I decided to start my "Time Capsule" which will go back into the closed attic. At Hobby Lobby I found the acid-free photo sleeves, in three different sizes.

    The owner of the cottage stopped by to see how the renovations are coming. Isn't she adorable? Have to come up with a name for her.

    New Tenants

    From the album: The Appleby Cottage

    As the house becomes more of a real house, and I plan the furnishings, methinks maybe the figurine is not the right person for it. She's actually too tall (almost 7") and I'm not liking the two inseparable dolls. I already have these two resin dolls in my collection, so I just placed them in there to see how they look.

    The paint runs on the back are original - Papa did that, not me. I have not painted "fresh" wood except on the back, where I painted the ends of the siding and the roofing, and the crossbars on the windows. Haven't yet decided what I'm going to do with the back. I'm going to Hobby Lobby tomorrow, so will look around for ideas.

    That is just shadow on the side of the wall.

  20. From the album: The Appleby Cottage

    To go with the apple motif, I thought a red roof would look good. Something bright and cheery for the new look.

    New Doorway

    From the album: The Appleby Cottage

    With paperclay, wood putty and paint - the revised doorway is finished. I recycled the doorposts from the downstairs door and fit them in the upper, new, section, then reinstated the original top framing pieces.

    All Gone!

    From the album: The Appleby Cottage

    I patched up the outside of the lower right window, to make room for the stairway. It has one coat of paint on it, and will receive another coat soon. The patch doesn't affect the basic structure, nothing was removed, and it's just basswood and putty covering the patch - all of which could be removed without much trouble if necessary. On the inside, the wallpaper will cover the opening.

    After extending the doorway, it wouldn't look good to put a smooth piece of wood in the new section. Finally decided to go with Paperclay. Smooshed it all into place, then roughed it up a bit to resemble the rough hewn look of the original. This is before painting, and before the doorsills are in place.

    Bath Time!

    From the album: The Appleby Cottage

    Spent a couple hours cleaning the little house all up. My research said not to soak wood with water (which was my first inclination) so I used a shopvac to blow into the crevices, then brushed all unpainted surfaces with a copper-bristled brush, then blasted it with air again. After that I took a vinegar/water mixture (1:1) and using a soft rag washed all surfaces, inside and out. Looks much better!

    Flooring

    From the album: The Appleby Cottage

    These are the floor coverings for two of the floors. At first glance I thought they were pieces of RL linoleum, but they are light cardstock / heavy paper, with a shiny surface; 12" long by 8" wide.
