If anyone has a dollar tree around, check out the nail care section, i just loaded up on eight packs of tiny glass jars filled with glittery things! Smaller than the ones found at craft stores even

Oooh, thanks for the tip. I picked up six packs (I had to go to two Dollar Trees to find them though).

Love the butterfly painting room!  I did a leaf painter room, but I have not completed it yet!  I see some good ideas I might "borrow" Wink

I will check out Dollar Tree--I love that place for unusual finds!

On Turkey Day, my little 3 year old great nephew asked me where my little house was...holy cow...that means that I started it over a year ago...I told him I would finish it for his next visit in March! Cheesy

So I dove into this at the start of the month and I decided that I would make myself be methodical and not half-@$$ my process just to get it done quickly.  I have been in dire need of stress relief so I chose this as my personal therapy.



There it is, put together as a dry run.  What an insane structure by the way, a million pieces including two pieces of trim that just didn't want to stay in one piece so they got wood glued for their troubles.



The trim, the color of hot chocolate.



This is my copper ceiling, I'm quite proud of it.  Thank goodness I respond with relaxation to detail work.



The bedroom ceiling, kind of reminds me of "Starry Night" which is perfect since one of the downstairs room is getting a TARDIS.



The study ceiling.

Then I had this crazy idea; why don't I make one for my favorite aunt for Christmas?  She's having a rough year, a fairy tale themed house would be awesome.  So I go buy a new one (the house with veranda) and get right on it. 



Exterior color scheme



The dining room (Snow White theme) and kitchen (Hansel and Gretel I think)



The first "stained glass" window which will be for the kitchen



The upper floor will be a library (Beauty and the Beast) and the bottom is another wall of the kitchen



The dining room floor and porch floor

I've actually wallpapered or painted all visible walls, I just don't have a bedroom photo.  That will be The Princess and the Pea.  Cheesy

Your houses are coming along beautifully!  Do you need another favorite aunt?  I'd be delighted to volunteer!  Wink

I <3 this thread so much. I can't tell you how much I love all the different interpretations of the same structures! I completely agree with the insane structure thing though, I never did get any of those teeny bits that 'support' the attic floor to fit properly so I gave up on them. And the verandah.... gah! You get it fit on one side, and the other pops off, you fix THAT and the first side lets loose  Cry

I adore the starry night ceiling, that's one of my favourite paintings ever... and you've tied in the TARDIS! The subsect of geeky miniaturists is growing :>  The wee dormer in my attic has a crack in the universe Grin

Awesome job on both houses, you've included so many different techniques....the ceilings, the floors, the overall concepts....I can't wait to see more!

Knickertwists, you never cease to amaze me. I honestly love every single thing you do.

Thanks for the tip about Dollar Tree, CamOovas! Now I've got another excuse to go over there. Smiley

HandsyMalone, your houses are looking awesome! I love the idea of a TARDIS room and a Beauty and the Beast style library. Ooh...built-in bookshelves sound like a fabulous idea for my next house. The stone floor for your porch looks really good, too.

Thanks guys!  I've not made much progress since the photos, I have been working on my knitwear design final and I've done something to my shoulder so it's slow going.  I did manage to finish the floors for the downstairs and made a failure of a stained glass window.  Too big to look good but not big enough to warrant saving.  So I get to do it again, hopefully I'll have time this weekend.

Good morning ladies.

Sorry that I haven't posted since my first posts. Life has decided to turn the world upside down health wise, so it's been one specialist to another and more tests than I care to have. No real bad news just enough to change life...but we must dust ourselves off and continue on.

Then I have been fighting with the company that I purchased my doll house from about returning it. That has been 3 weeks and yes, I got nasty. I swear it all depends on who you speak with as each person has a different version of the rules. Finally got a email yesterday and full refund is in the works. Now to buy a new house, yeah! I think that might have to wait until after the holidays though.

I did read the posts and all the houses are coming along so wonderful. You ladies amaze and inspire me...fantastic work! So many great idea's on how to create items and decorate your houses...each as unique as the owner.

Take care and I'm lurking until I get my new house.

Are any of you familiar with the lookalike books? You will never look at anything the same way again. You can look at one on Amazon that shows you some inside pages. Check it out.
