Battery's charged, so here come the pics

Here's the Glencroft bedroom, currently. I haven't done a thing with the ceiling yet...I am trying to figure out how to finish it and whether it should have trim (my thought is yes, it should).
I got this little brass bed with a mini lot of furniture. I am very pleased with it, but I think I will paint it...now to figure out how to do that. I will also add a piece of foam to make a more lifelike mattress and dress it well.

Also in the lot was this highboy. It provides a lot of storage space, but I haven't figured out which room it belongs in. I am tempted to put it in the bathroom as I have no cabinet.

What I really like about it is that it matches the hutch I had posted about earlier (the one I got at Reed's Antiques in Maine).

I've finished putting the chimney together. Now to figure out how to finish it...brick? stone? hmmm.

The brackets are on. The one thing I thought I'd have covered are the holes in the shell...I assume that Greenleaf assumed one would stucco this house? Time to get the wood filler and repaint.

Thanks to the new sheet 13, I was able to finish the half-timber on this side! :-D

And now for something completely different: I fell in love with Re-ment. Look how adorable! Newbury Comics sells these items in blind boxes. I got a breakfast set, sushi set, grocery set, donut set, and cookie set. Now, some are the right scale, others are too big...strangely enough, this variation happens in one box. *shrugs* I am keeping a display on a shelf in our dining room. Some of the 1:12 scale stuff may find its way into the dollhouse when it's finally completed...we'll see. I just adore the cuteness. :)

Our local Barnes and Noble carries Miniature Collector, issues of which I do have. But when I took my sister and nieces to Earth and Tree last Wednesday (a week ago? Really?), I picked up an issue of each Dollhouse Miniatures and American Miniaturist. One of the magazines has an adorable chaise lounge which looks easy to make.

And our local used bookstore had this treasure:
This is perfect because my project for HBS will require me to make a garden. ;)


  1. Hey Linda, it's Kath (colloidish) from LJ. I finally got around to setting up a minis blog of my own, and I can't wait to update with photos. =)

    Hehe, isn't Re-Ment fun? One of the reasons I decided to work in both 1:6 and 1:12 scales is so I could have Re-Ment pieces to fit both. Not knowing what size the pieces will be is part of the surprise. ^^

    I love how your Glencroft is coming along! I too love that shade of blue and your choices of furniture.

  2. Hi Kath,

    Thanks for the compliments on the Glencroft! There are so many things I want to do with it, it feels like I'll never be done. :)

    I love Re-ment! I thought about delving into 1:6 figures. I could have a lot of fun with my appreciation for anime with that as a lot of figures are 1:6 so it could work out pretty well. We'll see.

    Thanks for reading!


  3. Ooooh seeing pictures of your Glencroft reminds me of my Westville, which after 20 years on/off work is still not finished (less complete than your house) and is currently in storage while we try to sell our full size human house. I'm itching to get my hands on it again, but will have to be patient for a bit longer.
