CJ,, I couldn't find a #43, they have the same numbers, several of them 0.  Notwithstanding, if the images at the top of the first page are the new ones the house is gorgeous!

Here's a link to CJ's album. After the cover picture, it starts with the newest pictures first. CJ's Antique House. It shows a #43 down a ways in the list.

Oh, dear! So I guess the pictures don't go in numerical order anymore.  However, I must say they were much easier to upload after the upgrade. But I do hope you all can see the pictures - my cheering section that has been encouraging me all along the way.  :)

What a happy little house! I'm so glad you decided to take this journey and allow us to take it with you. I love the history and you have really nailed it keeping the old and adding the new. It is beautiful.

Am I the only one who can't see the image?  All I get is a gray box that says, "Sorry, this content no longer available" . Hmm.

It was a known issue. No particular explanation as to why. It happened in several other places as well.

Here's the link I posted to the album with her new pictures.

Thank you, Selkie.  :)

That gray box isn't the only issue.  I'm still wondering if my "Dolls" and "Houses" albums are forever lost; they no longer show up for me.

It seems like our albums always get messed up with an upgrade.  :(

Little Miss Appleby is standing tall and proud in the Hobby Hall at our State Fair. I worked on this project for 7 months to the day! She came in with a Third Place Ribbon, which is more than I was expecting, due to the out-of-scale exterior.  If our galleries are still messed up, here is a link to my full album on Facebook. It is marked "public" so you should be able to see it. Appleby Cottage

Your dining table looks just like the one I made for the Washington farmhouse from Jane Harrop's book.  Did you display before & after pictures with it?  I would have been very surprised if it hadn't won an award it's beautiful!

Holly, the table is an HOM kit, It has two rounded "wings" to it, so when it's all put together it's a large oval table. I put one of the wings under the table by the sink, but didn't have room for the other one. 

Yes, I did display an 8.5" by 11" acrylic sign beside it with a picture of the original house, and a picture of an ad from a 1906 magazine, with a dh that looked like what Papa might have been copying from.  When I went to pick up the house the ladies at the Hobby Hall told me it was the hit of the show!  Lots of people stopped to look closely at it. :)  

Now I have to decide what to build for next year. :)

I just finished reading your entire album again. I love everything about this project. The history, thinking about the lives of those centered around the original house, and your thoughtful, respectful preservation of their story. I love that you took an unconventional scale and embraced it instead of changing it.  Well done, and may it live on another 100 years.

Thank you, Sue.  It became a labor of love. I've never experienced anything quite like the journey this house took me on!  :drive:

      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!

      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).

      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 ?
