A new follower

A big thanks to Sylvia of who has started following my site. Stop on over to her site and say hello. Thanks Syliva, I hope you enjoy what you see.

Close to finished Bedroom

I finally got the woodwork constructed, painted, and installed. This past few weeks aside from my computer problems, have been very busy. I put the furniture in an aside from a few accessories, I am very please with how it turned out.
I am now going to concentrate on making the flowers to go in the window boxes and getting them on the house. For the most part the inside is finished and I have some small things to do/get for the interior. It's been very satisfying finally getting the point when I can say that. As I said this dollhouse was given to me many, many years ago by my father and I think he will be pleased to see the end result.

Music Room Windows Completed

I got the window woodwork for the music room finished last night and put in place. It turned out okay, but it is the least favorite of the rooms in the house. Maybe because it is dark. Anyway I found these adorable "tin ceiling" tiles in a catalog and along with some egg and dart cornice molding painted to match I think it will brighten things up.

I am undecided what to do with the channel moulding that I have put at the ends of the floors. Should I paint it white, brown, or stain it? Any suggestions? Here's a picture showing the bedroom that has yet to have the window moulding put in place. I have finished them, but have to paint them yet.

It's Dinner Time!

I got the new things out that I ordered from Amazon with my gift card and went through them. I ordered diningroom and living room accessories and the bedroom furniture. Although I am not crazy about the bedroom things, the accessories were nice. I set them up in the dining room and the pictures came out nice (if I do say so myself).

I then started on the work for the windows in the Music Room and the Bedroom. I made two sample windows to test them for fit before I went and cut for the others. I have 5 wide windows and 8 narrow windows in those two rooms. I checked for fit and "gang cut" the pieces for the other windows this morning. I laid them all out on a piece of paper that I marked with the sizes so I can just grab, sand, and assemble as I move along. They are all going to be painted so I didn't have to stain the pieces before I cut.

These are different from the other ones I have done because these have corner blocks. I have never used them before but I studied the workwork in my real size house and checked out how they were done and figured it out. I also had some help from my husband who does construction and he gave me the thumbs up on what I was doing.
