So I've been off site for the past 3 years now getting a Master's degree - that combined with working full time and being a single mom meant that there was no time for minis :-(. I've dug my stuff back out, and yes, of course I have like 7 other projects to work on, but I really wanted to grab a Gloucester or a Cheltenham because I love them and they are out of stock. Anybody know if Greenleaf/Corona is going to put either back into production?
Remember that old dollhouse shell without doors, roof and trim that I wanted to make into a department store? Well, I finally got hit by that wonderful streak of inspiration one night in a dream. Woke up the next morning, determined to find a way to bash another house on top of the department store. The only logical house would be either of the front-opening Greenleaf houses. But they are very scarce. Literally an hour later, I found a Gloucester on eBay and jumped at the chance. It will fit perfectly on top of the other shell with just a little bit of the bottom house being bigger. I will just have to come up with a creative way to finish off that edge or add small roof tiles or something else quirky. Then I had to redesign the entire front of the two houses. I don't like the Gloucester's door & windows, I want to make my house more Parisian. So I spent a happy evening on Pinterest just checking out all the various buildings in Paris. I'm building all my houses to be in Expatville, no specific location, no specific timeline. So I'm free to add some modern twists to the house instead of sticking to period details. For fun, I've ordered 3 massive oval attic windows and I'm going to change the roof into a Mansard style. Mme Hanna loves roses and pink, so I'm doing the whole building according to her taste. The fabric showrooms will have to be black/white/gray, otherwise the pink will just clash with all the fabric colours. I'm collecting rose print fabrics, furniture, paintings as well as pink items too.
