My Cup Runneth Away with Me

Hi everybody I am back!

I had what I will call "a little distraction" as well as being a little under the weather. I am still recouperating. Thanks for all of your well wishes!

A couple of posts ago, I talked about a house I missed out on because it was already Sold. I had to stop for a moment and think about what I already had on my plate starting with my first roombox and lets not forget the  Mall

So, I decided to take an informal inventory of the projects waiting for completion. Now I realize I didn't really need another dollhouse. But, if I happen across another deal...mumble mumble....

I bought this the day of the "One  Got Away". I figured it was better than nothing. It needs a major makeover.

The roof is all wrong! This is a 1:24 scale model.

Everytime I look at these two kits, I get something called agida also known as the Willies.
One day, one day... Sorry it is so dark


Each box holds supplies for a different scene or roombox. This is just some of them.

This is a Lil Tikes mansion that I tried to repaint.
It is really huge!
I thought black and white might look better.
 Then realized the paint was a bad idea. It looks terrible.

My grandson thought his dino would enjoy the view. I also found a way to remove that horrible paint. I will let you know if if works

I am preparing to remodel this house. The following pictures show how much work I HAD done inside already. This was also purchased already assembled.

Fitting all of the furnishings before putting down a floor


This is what it looks like now. One day I looked inside and the wallpaper was streaked!
Out came the furniture and off came the wallpaper. I have begun repairing the foundation.

To Be Continued...

Hello everyone!

Just want to say I am still here. Last night I went into my studio to get back on track with camera in tow preparing for a new post.

Unfortunately, instead, I ended up in the emergency room for the second time in less than a week. Not quite out of the woods yet, but the trees are so pretty here! LOL.

Fortunately, my loved ones have been keeping me up with lots of smiles and laughter. So, look for new dolly updates and posts very soon. I  am also going to highlight several interesting crafters. Lots of fun stuff coming. See ya soon!

Missing all of you,
