I finally FOUND it! I finally found a box that will work for the add-on to the: "Queen of Hearts" house!
(Try to explain to DH who he cant throw out the eggo waffle box)  Roll Eyes
Now to strengthen the thin cardboard...huh.....hmmm... Undecided
Its just a tad wider and still have to cut of some of the depth but it will work so I dont have to sacrifice the "Shell Cottage" house now.

Now to build a foundation to hide the  electrical do dads..... Grin Wink

And Teag? I think you need a Hobbit House with some dungeon rooms to hold the garden gnomes it would be perfect!
Great for time out punishments. Those can be a blessing... Wink Cheesy

I love your Millifae family BTW! Awesome house!

hahaha my first one I was 4? and dad was watching dark shadows on the tv (and dozed off) and I used his newspaper and pill bottles to form the floor, roof, and walls...and beads..fake pearls for the decor.

I got upset we he woke up and ruined my HOUSE getting his stuff back.. pouts.... Grin Tongue

That is one o the few I haver read! but have heard and seen posts about it. I think it would be a wonderful house! Would be able to use a very aeclectic group of "do-dads"  Grin

I cant wait to see it! I never knew what I was missing in my childhood!

yep! I got some 1/12 tape wire but i also considered using one of those battery operated lights from the Dollar store! Iv'e seen them used and they work great. And I would bet that mini strands of X-Mas lights  would work as well....I say a lady that did the tenny and wired it with X-Mas lights and you talk about gorgous!

..... To be somewhat vaguely on topic, have you figured out which way you're gonna go on the exterior?

Im thinking of doing the crackle finish but then adding in spots of brick and put stones around the edges..I want it to look like it is in the run down, faded elegance stage! Then again it depends of how the bricks and stones print out!  Shocked

I also def. (paws crossed) plan to have window boxes and IF I can pull off the 2nd addition...(Not the whole house one) the 2 room one..will have a rooftop deck area....ughhh just saying it and picturing it? feels like Im overextending it......huffs....

Guess I will go surf the net for "run-down decadence" or isnt that also sometimes called "Shabby chic"? hmmm

But first it getting it wired.......

Oh my goodness, I had no idea that little puzzle kit was virtually identical to a 'real' dollhouse! I had to google and look Smiley  That's the one I'm working on too, but I'm going to try and make the outside look kinda like the cover of a leatherbound book. I hope.

Ohh that would make a great steampunk or safari adventurer home!
You can get a printie to print out a lion skin or zebra skin rug... Wink
and things like that..

OR..lots of gearts and cogs etc...hahahaha you might need 2 little houses as well maybe!  Grin

I know! I have gotten all sorts of ideas here and over at the Greenleaf community. like cutting a window in that one upper room in the mini tenny...and a rooftop garden on the adjoining section..pouts

My only problem with the bashing idea is the one spot I will have to display it wont be near big enough if I go with the bashed idea. I really, really want a shed or some sorta little building for just these things. Set it up displaying all of them....

sighs a girl can fantasize  ehh? (Does my age show thru with WHAT I'm fantasizing about?) shakes head....whoa...  Shocked Roll Eyes
Is that sad?  Tongue Grin

OK! got the majority (not nearly all!) snickers of the photos that captured me as far as idea wise....I put them on photoshop with my start of dolls...ROFL hubby sure wished I had stopped there! ROFLMAO anyway  here goes: http://s1096.photobucket.com/albums/g328/MadameMarigold/

I have even picked up some tiny'er dolls so to make a mini queen to haunt the window.....just need to make a ruffled collar like the queen on the deck of cards. The one photo? like 2 or 3rd in? Shows the 2 kits bashed together. Thats one way to get a kitchen and bathroom but...then no go for Shell cottage! Pouts.....I dunno...Im still saving every box that comes in trying to find a fit to add the 2 extra rooms. Just no luck yet!

I need another shed or bus to store all my mini "stuff" Im saving... Sad Grin
