Declaration of Completion


Recently, I took a look around at my dollhouses. All are pretty much unfinished projects. Shame on me. As most of you know,I don't enjoy building houses from scratch so I purchase them pre-owned and perform a house-ectomy on them.

I have vowed:  

IN THIS YEAR OF OUR LORD, 2019, I resolve that, I, The Grandmommy,  shall complete and make available for view as many projects as I can. 

I am showing this video here to put myself and my resolution up for public scrutiny and hopefully encouragement. 

I hereby promise I will make available, updates and completions as they occur.

For some of these projects it means gluing and or waxing some items down as, when they are turned to view the interior, everything falls. For others it may be pretty near refurbishment. In this process, I intend to new try things and learn a lot.

This is just a small portion of my projects. As you can see, there are 1:12 and 1:6 scales. A few smaller ones will get attention later.
So I had better get busy!

Please critique with suggestions and ideas. I am very open at this point.

Wish me luck!

Shedding a Little Light on Fountains

Hi Everybody!

I am trying to get back into my blog which I enjoy so much. Life keeps interfering, but there are so many great ideas to share!

Look forward to seeing posts of my current projects. I also need some of your opinions on a couple of them. As always, I am working on more than one. Also on the list is to complete all of the partially completed projects.

I saw these ideas while surfing. Don't you think this would look awesome in an outdoor scene? Although it is beyond my skill set, I know some of you will find this super easy.

If anyone decides to make one please share! I would love to see them.

You may find other interesting things on the website for your mini and average life.

Tell me what you think!

The Miniaturist: Real-Life History

  Hi Everybody!

This is a great guideline for designing for this time period. I saw the movie and loved it. You can see it on Youtube. I learned a lot from this video. Hope you do too!

Sorry for the sizing. For some reason I couldn't get it to fit in the space.
