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

No, I was picturing a Queen of hearts waiting for one of her suitors either the Kings of clubs or King of  spades to return...interior is going to consist of virtually everything heart shaped and roses pinks and reds..but the outside?

I have seen several different examples over at the "greenleaf miature community" site..one had the paint crackled, one had it done with brick and black roof....and one had a lighter brick but with stone? wrapping arond the edges  and windows and doors....

I need to see if I can copy those pics either over to here or somewhere so it is clearer what Im picturing...It is SOOO hard to choose! LOL

I want it to look like she is waiting for her lost love(s)? to come back...and maybe show the competing between them for her by both the things they did to her home and her gifts...hmmm I do know the roof will have dried rose heads off of real roses DH bought for me and I saved and dried....
 UGHHH let me try to bring a few photos over....hahahahaha
(Im terrible at deciding things)

Im still here as well...I got my 1st (creatology version of the Tennyson?) dry fitted but havent started the final fitting till I figure out what my exterior is gonna look like! I just can decide...... Undecided

then I have another creatology one that is like the one Knickertwist used for the "Squirrels End" tavern. I think that one might wind up "Shell Cottage" from HP.....

And of course I just couldnt resist hitting "bid" on a BIGGER version of who knows what dollhouse....(gonna be WAYYY bigger!) so it is just still in box in birdroom for now...

and last but not least the computer.....still needs dismantled and coverted.....

(Thank goodness DH is to hot to fuss about throwing these away!)
as far as throw away puters? I got 4! shushhhh dont let him realize!  Wink Grin

Anybody willing to let me bounce ideas on exterior for 1st one off of them? Its theme is the "Queen of Hearts" house......Huh??

 Grin actually I'm glad you did'nt get what I meant! That woulda meant so much more work! giggles....I have 2 black trash bags of ...well bags! to cut up and roll up....

 but what I meant I did see wow, dont remember where? Some take and drop spindle? (prob not right wording) but basicly they "Spin" it like they would wool and make it more like they do skiens of yarn you buy in store.....supposedly lt is a lot stronger etc, etc but the thought of after cutting then rolling up a couple of years of saved bags then to spin and re-roll etc? It hurts just thinking of it!    Shocked Grin

I actually love the thought of bags and all sorts of stuff made this way but I can see my in-laws and DD's eyes when they get "plarn bags" for their prezzies!  Wink Kiss (snickers)

I cant wait to get a copy of your bag going! Where did you find that beautiful brown at by chance? I can get yellow and of course the reg. wally world bags but not seen browns one yet!
(Will make hubby go to diff stores if need be!)   Wink

Hope to have something to show sooner rather than later!  Kim

Did you spin the plarn before you started crocheting it? Or started right in? Your bag is AWESOME! Would make good X-Mas prezzies i think!  Grin

hmmm big camo boots 12 inchers...sounds like a good troll or ogre house dont ya think? Wonder how hard it will be to cut gortex apart? hahahahahaha grabbing shears and wheeling to closet........

Could use some help deciding....I should have "B.B. bediliahs Mousehouse" done before the weekend is over (just need to make the mice!) and have recieved the house from ebay (same style as the Storytellers house) but cant decide on what color to use on exterior! Hubby bought me white spray paint..... Angry

Its going to be a "Queen of Hearts house so figured on a lot of different shades pinks, reds and mauves etc....throughout! But the exterior has got me cowed.   Shocked Roll Eyes Cheesy

Also kinda was hoping to do the interior wallpaper etc sorta non-permenant? So I can change as the whims hit me.....(Laminate paper then double sided tape?) Or am I being a goose?  

AAAGGGGHHHHH its been sitting here almost a week mocking me.....pouts...sighs

OK also kinda  a poll?...2 choices....Pristine Victorian home (The Queen waiting for her suitors the kings of Spades and his competitor the King of Clubs)....
OR faded, the home of a fading eccentric, striken Queen whose lovers killed each other over her but she still waits for them with all her fading gifts and flowers she had recieved...(Think crazy old cat lady auntie type)

OR the ruthless, megolomanical, *coughs* hmmm how to phrase it?
(younger interest on the side?) Queen with partially torn, decaying K's of spades and clubs hidden in the attic while her playtoy the Prince of Diamonds is kinda tied up at the moment in her bedour..... Embarrassed

hmmm would fingernail polish hurt for trim etc? ughhhh Cheesy Roll Eyes sorry...sighs
 Grin ANY ideas would be ever so much appreciated! Going to make master pattern.....

Well FINALLY got my computer fixed and got my first bits of wallpaper printed off! WOO HOO! A very nice tiled one for the kitchen and maybe the bathroom
(Mouse house) and real small flowered batch for the LR and MAYBE Leches game/betting room but still pondering that....did see a nice more masculine type but still browsing tho.

Also went to check the shipping on the one I won off ebay
(Didnt consider time shipping from overseas Dohhh!) and while there spotted/won a vintage DH size porcelain bathtub & bathroom sink, & a old fashioned stove! Talk about excited!

Also want to reccomend a neat, neat, neat site:
"https://picasaweb.google.com/sherree2"  I figure I will make the majority of my furnature off of here besides what I make from bits and pieces I find here at home......I spent 3 days stuck on this site! Didnt get squat done.....ROFL
check it out.....all you will wind up spending is on glue or tape or....hmmmm crud need to make a list! Roll Eyes
