Leon vs Victorianna

Over the past couple of weeks I have been bouncing between half scales of Leon's Victorian Mansion and GL Vicotrianna. Both have been neglected and unfinished for a few years.

Leon first

Master bedroom before:

As it stands currently with crown molding, photos and some baseboards.
I need to order more baseboards!!

My friend told me that I seem to be getting sappy in my older age.
Whatever... 😉

The photo in the reading nook came from a magazine. I have had it for some time, but never really had a place for it. It is some what depressing, but we all have some low days. 

I love the way the sun shines through the window.

The only attention the hall received was a deep clean.


The image on the wall is another one that my husband painted.

I am attempting another turtle tank.
Just add water...

Girls room before the maid serve:

This rug is very similar to what my daughter had in her room when she was younger.
Purchased from My Mini World

My daughter was the consultant for what art would be appropriate for the walls. 

A couple photos for the bathroom.
This is the only room that needs crown molding - conveniently cropped out of the image.

Leon's living room

The print on the wall is one that I bought my mom many years ago.

 Leon's kitchen - by far my favorite mini room.

I didn't realize how badly we needed hand towels until I saw these little guys from Country Mini.

On to the Victorianna

This house turned into a Christmas theme all because of the tree. I bought it from
  Happily Ever After a couple years ago, but did not have a place for it.
She (the tree) found her way into the Victorianna's living room, and hasn't left since.

I have been busy wrapping presents and finding Christmas decor.
I have a holiday rug for this room ordered.

While searching for Christmas wall art, I found this squirrel print.
I absolutely love this print and need to order it for our home.

Santa also hangs in my full scale room box. 
This print my mom has in her real life living room.

Christmas cards in the kitchen.
Do people even send cards anymore?

Cooking with Santa.

Is he pouring wine in that bowl?

So far the bathroom is spared from Christmas.
The print on the wall is another my husband painted.


New art for the master bedroom

Twin boys room - another favorite.

My teen consultant informed me that the purple is not cool, so this teen has some black bedding.
The dog image is of a Blue Heeler, what my daughter has.
You can't see the print, but it says
'My best friend never says a word to  me'

My daughter picked the posters.

I was reprimanded for putting Thor in a closet.
For shame.

I stated to trim out the house, but I kept bumping the delicate pieces.
Thankfully I have more to spare.
Once the baseboards and other trims are in, I can place the rest of the fancy trim.

The porch is even getting some attention. 
I didn't care for the railings that came with the kit.
I have another Victorianna that I purchased built - she can keep her original pieces once her rehab starts.

The railing that comes with the Houseworks stairs is much finer than the regular Housworks porch railing.
I need to search for some nice railing soon.

Misc pics

Foreman check out the exterior windows

Cats vs dog. The 16 year old scrawny black cat always wins.

Occasionally my cat will let the dog in the craft room to join us.

This is how my daughter spent her first day of her senior year.
My husband took her and a friend to an amusement park.

My people.
Love looking off our deck to see my kids visiting.

Not everything is bigger in Texas!

Let's recap, shall we?
This is Dad's room/office in his Texas home.
Partial view desk. 

Partial views of his shelf. 

I am sure you get the idea.

Picked up a hutch at Hobby Lobby. I must say, I really enjoy living in a town that has TWO HL to shop at.

I didn't have any brown paint or stain to finish the hutch. I diluted black paint as a make shift stain.

Dad is a retired trucker from North American.
I stole this semi from a half scale boys room.

Printed off the logo to represent my Dad's truck he owned/operated.

This is my favorite piece.

Filling up the shelves. I painted a mug that I had and wrote DAD on with a sharpie on it.
The photo behind his adorable semi is my twins, daughter and myself at my boys graduation. 

Dad worked for Good Year in the 70's before the shop closed in the Jackson, MI location.
On his fridge is a picture of him with my boys.

There are too many personal touches to even mention, but everything means something.

I will continue to add treasures and clutter as  I come across them. 
The gist of the room box is done and has turned out better than what I envisioned.
