  1. Won it on eBay and picked it 425 miles away yesterday! This is biggest house I've done since RGT's Painted Lady and am so excited!
  2. Walmer Foxhall Manor #600 is ready for a new loving home. We are keeping the other miniature houses but this is too big for our new space. It's a large installation- see ping pong table for size reference. See photos posted here: https://duluth.craigslist.org/clt/d/duluth-vintage-walmer-foxhall-manor/6963266066.html Kept in good condition by my perfectionist word-working grandfather in his basement. His 80yr old hands can't manage the intricate parts for quite some years so it's time for a new home. He reinforced the main base area for a better platform. Main house structure is complete but windows were not installed (still in original packaging). One of the additions has been set up, while the Conservatory is still new un-opened in box. Also includes both additions: #603 and #605More photos or video upon request. Make an offer. This exact kit [but without either addition] is being sold on eBay for much more:https://www.ebay.com/itm/Sophistikits-Foxhall-Manor-Dollhouse-Material-Milled-Plywood-/331766853785Would make such a memorable Christmas house display. -12 Rooms. -Front-opening design. -Fancy porch posts and spindles. -Window kits include interior trim. -Step-by-step instructions with detailed drawings.
  3. 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 The Potential: I've got this hand crafted doll by an I.G.M.A. Artist named Eliza and this is going to be her home. I'm thinking of painting the roof black and later shingling it. The house either a dusky lavender or a dusky rose pink. Black trim. Dark grey and deep cream for accent colors. Only Artisan pieces and furniture inside this home! I cannot wait to start collecting, but I first must finish some Layaways in 1:24 scale. Already an Artisan member here has offered me a stunning rug that will have the pride of place in one of the rooms. It's going to take years, but it will be beautiful when it's finished. It needs Help and LOVE! But it is only: $40! I'm stunned. Going to hopefully pick it up next week. My friend is going to be taking me over to get it. I know that it is HUGE (it comes with the Conservatory and the two-story addition, but the staircases are missing, plus the (looking at the front) left side front-opening door. I've measured my desk: it fits! But only a foot more in length is available to work. I'm cleaning up my Craft Room this week and getting ready to bring my find home hopefully next week. I'm so THRILLED! There are Members that find these incredible Dollhouses for incredible prices, but I NEVER dreamed that I could ever be one.
  4. Here is the front: The tan shingles & the exterior of the roof: The interior: The inside foyer with broken and various pieces:
  5. 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 the main house exterior, and then planning which room is what for the interior. I'm going to need to contact Real Good Toys for the missing left front-opening door, as well as both staircases, the exterior trim pieces, and also the windows as well as doors. Decorating will be half the fun! I cannot wait to begin!
  6. Hi! I may have done this years ago, when I first registered, but I honestly don't remember. Just pretend we haven't met. ;) I have two school-age children that are growing to a stage where I can take up minis again. My biggest, probably lifelong, project is my bashed (improved?) Foxhall Manor. I bought it years ago at the HBS Outlet; assembled the shell, wired it, custom built a tower, cut new windows, made new rooms, and it has sat that way ever since. I've just started getting everything back out again. Because it has sat vacant for so long, I'm finding things that need to be redone as I go. It's frustrating, but a labor of love, I suppose. I also have in my mini 'hood: A San Franciscan from my childhood, that will one day be redone as a haunted house (the yellowing wallpaper is aged to perfection) An Orchid where Santa Claus and his elves work A modern garage, I think I built it from a Nutshell News article when I was in high school A fairy garden (the kind you have to remember to water) A hat shop that is part of the Street of Shops; the others are in progress, but it will eventually include a bakery While I had children underfoot, I took up portable, less fragile, projects, like knitting/crochet, and sewing. I am enjoying incorporating some of those things into miniature. In between waiting for paint to dry on my Foxhall, I've gotten out my FIMO, and have made some tiny mice for the kitchen (one of them is currently my profile pic.) Thanks for letting me join in!
