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.
