The Big House hits a wall-miniature house

Well, I have been puttering right along putting together my Big house. I had to stop because I ordered the wrong doors. I also decided to add the Houseworks conservatory-which requires that I switch walls in the conservatory so the doors face to the front-another stop. There is a 3/8th inch differience which will have to be compensated for in the front wall. I may want to put double doors from the right side of the house into the conservatory (the two story addition is on the left side of the house). So.......screach........STOP. I have to wait for the doors and the conservatory to be shipped by HBS. They are having a 20% off all purchases starting tomorrow, so I will order then. Their email is My husband-sweet man-is giving me the conservatory for my birthday and mother's day. I am soooo happy. Well, in two weeks I should have alot to report-even pictures. Kate >^..^<

Miniatures-Finished the Black Box

Well, I finished-almost-the black box. I made quarter round bamboo-looks great. I am so taken with this room-so prestine. Tomorrow I start on my "BIG" house. It should take about 2-3 years to complete and the rooms are going to be elaborate and detailed. I will post as I go. I am reupholstering furniture to put in the house. The material was very expensive and I have made a few mistakes-there is a learning curve. I can fix the mistakes and learn from the experience.

Now for the Black box and the bamboo.
