..... 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.......

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!

I too would like to know how complicated it is to wire a house! The very thought intimidates me to be honest.

Also, the theme of my house Ms Marigold, is a Borrower (are you familiar with the children's books?) explorer has taken up residence in a dollhouse temporarily. Leaving me with the ability to indulge in a kind of steampunky/found items sort of look.

It's never too late to read it! It's downright inspiring to anyone interested in minis. In fact, it's probably the series that started me off in my lifelong fascination with miniatures   Cheesy  I made my first shoebox house while I was reading them...I think I must have been about 8. The Littles were another another similarly inspiring series Smiley

As a wee one, I spent a goodly amount of time watching the floorboards for evidence of Borrowers.  Grin

Hello! I've been a member/lurker for ages, but this thread has me finally uncloaking. I'm in awe of the creativity and the talent I have seen on this thread, and I am currently obsessed with tiny houses and tiny things. (Although not as tiny as Microjivvy's stuff... I bow down to your dexterity and patience!)
I first built the Creatology gothic villa as a dollhouse for my daughters (4 and 6 years old) and I was going to go all out with the decorating and fancying up... but of course, being kids, they did not want to wait until mommy was done fiddling because that was going to take forever! (They were right, actually Wink ) So I built it, they painted it, and I bought another kit for myself to lavish my attention and creativity on. This one is the fantasy villa one, and I am having a great time with it.
I can't post pictures yet, but I am taking them here and there and I hope to be able to show off my progress at some point!
