Ooooh....sounds very soft and romantic, looking forward to your pictures! You could do window boxes and trellises filled with roses, or maybe some bleeding heart shrubs?

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

The obvious solution is... you buy another one for the Shell Cottage Cheesy  It's like a compulsion now for me whenever I get a 50% off at Michaels, I buy another kit. I even bought the Fantasy one but the thought of it scares me! Shocked  It never even occurred to me to COMBINE two....you folks continue to inspire and motivate!

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

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

Hah! That's exactly where I'm going with this. This will become a steampunked Victorian inhabited by an explorer Borrower. I think. That's the plan anyway! That way I can incorporate lots of 'found' items as well as actually miniatures. I have it wallpapered inside already, and black vinyl ready to cover the outside. I've been taking pics as I go and I think I'm getting close to enough posts here to be able to add them  Grin

I'd say there should be some sort of husbands support group, but mine has his own deal. He's a total bookaholic so fair's fair!  Grin  (and I think this is post #10, granting me the glorious ability to post pics! yay!)  To be somewhat vaguely on topic, have you figured out which way you're gonna go on the exterior?

Just testing to see if I have this posting pics things right, I haven't done this in eons!  If I've done it correctly, this should be a pic of the Victorian puzzle house after dry fitting and deciding to do away with the dividing wall and the stairs Smiley



This is the scrapbook paper I chose for the attic and I'm just ridiculously happy with how it looks  Grin



My little crooked house...I'm still fiddling with the interior and not ready to glue anything down just yet. Not in any hurry since this is my first attempt at doing a house and NOT following the directions!!! lol    Shocked
