I've been admiring the Greenleaf dollhouses online for years, but had never been able to justify the expense, until this spring, when the world got cancelled. I live in Northern Saskatchewan, Canada, and for the first couple months of lockdown, you literally couldn't go outside without your face freezing within a minute or two, so I decided I needed a project, and bought the Magnolia. Now I'm hooked! I'll admit I rushed out of excitement and I'm not thrilled with the colour, and I'm just not happy with how it turned out, so I'm giving it to my daughter to play with. I've ordered the Buttercup and intend on doing a much better job. I can't wait for it to arrive.
I should also mention that I am partially colour blind, so I typically can't match colours at the best of times. There's a lot I will do different on my next house.
I'm Jill from Osage Beach, Missouri, originally from Omaha, Nebraska. I have been looking at these dollhouses for more than ten years. I originally wanted the Garfield, but it is so big. Maybe I'll do it as my next house? So I saw the Lily, love it, but it is also so big. I decided to make my first house a half scale and I just fell in LOVE with the Fairfield. I am a perfectionist by nature and I hope it doesn’t drive me crazy trying to get it right. I love the “Don’t panic!” in the warm-up syllabus. So I am just going to take my time and enjoy it as intended. I look forward to seeing what all of you have to say.
Take care in this time of uncertainty, Jill
Hello everyone I'm Cindy.. Happy (belated) Mother's Day to all the beautiful Mom's. Today I opened my 1st "Greenleaf (Orchid) Dollhouse Kit". I broke 2 windows already, but only because I was so excited. LoL..cough-cough.. :P I wasn't sure if I should use wood-filler or glue? I went with the "Gorilla-Glue" which seemed to workout just fine.. Crosses-fingers & holds-breath! I started a video too, so when the dollhouse is done we can watch it together. :) Ok, tty'all real soon.

So, I am on day two of my Glencroft build. The second floor went in with much finagling, but now I am dealing with the left side of my house. I've read about some of the problems other people have had with this side. I decided to walk away and start fresh tomorrow. So far it's been fun♡
