Minis On The Edge

More pictures added of the Beacon Hill

Recommended Posts

I just added some more pictures of the beacon hill dollhouse kit public. I only had about 7 pictures up of this house finished. Now there is almost 50. I can't upload here via my iPad so they are on webshots. You can see them by clicking here: http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/album/578071970VxhYHh revisiting the pictures is making me want to build another one :)

Aww Thanks Holly! I was going through the album I use to communicate with my buyers as I build and fell back in love with it. It was so dainty. It took me forever to finish but the final results made it worth it.

Tracy, this is just beautiful! I agree with Holly about the color scheme, and I love the vine.

Thank you all! I am thinking of building either a Beacon Hill or a Garfield for myself. I've always wanted a Garield but don't really have space for it but the Beacon Hill is also so Awesome and I picture it with Stone on the outsides. I'm still not sure but I plan on making a decision this month :)

Beautiful! I agree with Holly, it looks so romantic with the soft colouring. Landscaping, also to die for. I want to move in there! :)

Thank You for you sweet words about the Beacon Hill. It was a "girlie" girls house in my mind and I had a time finding the right color. I ended up mixing up my own paint colors for that one. It was fun to see it all come out so pretty and all.

It must run in the family. I can't remember the last time I didn't mix my own paint for something. I mix stains too with some interesting effects. hehehehehehe

Tracy, I do so love this house. It came out so pretty. It may have put up a fight while you were building it, but that's because it knew what it needed to be. Once you listened to it, it came out perfect. I think that you do need to build another BH for yourself. If you let your creativity run free, you'll have the most beautiful dollhouse ever. The BH suits you.

What a beautiful house, and such a wonderful choice of colors! It definately is a girlie-girl house, and looks so clean and neat! Terrific job, I really love it. I was going to build a Beacon Hill for myself until the Queen fell in my lap! The Beacon is one of my favorite houses, and I'm sure you would enjoy making one for yourself. BEAUTIFUL WORK! :D

      Hello! 

      I'm currently working on my first dollhouse. I bought this already assembled and have noticed there are hinges in the corners of most of the rooms (photos attached) some of which stick out quite  bit. I am wondering if anyone has suggestions for how to hide these as I don't want them to show under my wallpapers. (it seems as if they were used to pull the corners of the dollhouse walls together)

      Thanks!

      Hi,

      I am currently working on my first dollhouse. It is an Alison Jr. I am hoping to handpaint and illustrate my own wallpaper and am not sure where to start. What paper is recommended? Also wondering if a seal, specific glue is required. I was hoping to make individual entire wall sized paintings (probably with watercolour paint) that will mount to the walls as wallpaper (and won't fade over time).

      My Beacon Hill in process
      I bought the kit back in 2008. I got the basic shell done at that time, but life put it to the side. This shell has moved from Texas to Missouri, back to Texas, to Virginia, back to Texas. I got a little done here and there. I finally got the box back out in the last month, I have the windows almost done, and some of the trim on. I know I'm sloppy, and I get in a hurry. I put some of the household stuff from the giant box in the rooms, not permanently, just to put something in it. I had a metal dollhouse when I was a child, which is now a collectors item, but I gave it to some random little girl. I gave her the plastic furniture with it, but everything else I kept. I've been finding and saving stuff all my life for this dollhouse, hence the giant box. I'm still undecided about the paint colors for it. Here's a couple of my favorite things, cat table & chairs, and table & chairs made from screen and springs.
      I had a friend come over a couple weeks ago, and she helped me a little bit. She said I need some people to be living in there. I didn't keep the people I had before. So, mine is going to be this cat family. For now. I printed 2 out on card stock, one with mirror image, then glue them together. No cost. 
      What's funny is...I live in San Antonio, in the "Beacon Hill" neighborhood. Every other place I've lived here, I used the Beacon Hill post office. Worst post office on the planet. However, even though I live in the Beacon Hill neighborhood, they are not my post office.

      I have built a bunch of mini homes but I think the last one I did was over 4 years ago.  I really want to get back into it, I have tons of kits that I have great ideas for but I am feeling a little panic.  I just have not done this in so long I feel like I am going to screw it up somehow.  Starting with a Buttercup cottage for a 4 year old relative.  Looking for some good tips and maybe a few words of encouragement!
      Thanks!

      Hi everyone,
      I am happy to join this community of all things miniature.
      A little about myself: I have a very creative mind. Ever since I was a kid, I collected toys and simulated battles or adventure stories. I think that miniatures helped me escape from reality and I was able to create my own world. However, growing up, I lost touch of this passion of mine. I hope to rediscover this passion by exploring other people's creative worlds.
      First 2 questions: Where do you usually buy your miniatures and what do you look for ?
