I'm busy, busy, busy with real-life-size house goings on. The new windows and doors are being installed next week. The week after that new flooring is going in every room except my studio and the bathroom. Next month, I think,... Continue reading

That's an idea I hadn't thought of...but if I reduce the depth the cabinet won't come far enough out into the room to act as a side table for the chair.

Before I forget...Ester is doing much better. :) I have been busy enjoying our short summer season, so haven't worked on the build as much as needed to stay on schedule. If I want to photograph it outside while the... Continue reading

Four movies today, three tomorrow. I'm having a wonderful time. Ester has a cold. She is not having a wonderful time. My poor sneezy, coughing, feverish baby. She's on the mend, she's been feeling better the past few days. I've... Continue reading

I dry fit the double-hung windows on the side of the house, then glued all the windows in place, assuming they'd all be the same depth. They are not. I should have dry fit all of them, so that I... Continue reading

The second (and final, I think) coat of blue. Before I did that I bricked the base of the porch, then went over all the bricked surfaces looking for the few I'd glued on upside down. I carefully pulled off... Continue reading

The bricks are on and have their first coat of blue. No grout, because I'm painting them a dark color and need the depth. Looking at the picture just now made me realize I forgot to brick the base of... Continue reading

Susan mailed me the burgundy succulents to finish the roof. She has been making books for her own mini library (two stories, with a spiral staircase, I'm jealous) and said she was putting some in the box. Some?!? Holy cow.... Continue reading

The Chantilly has been sitting on my bookcase, close to done, since 2011. I was talking to another miniaturist last week, also working on a Chantilly, about how I need to finish it. I took it off the shelf to... Continue reading
