Just one more thing...

It seems to be a hassle to update my blog. I start, then decide to just finish this one little project - which leads to another week.

Bashed Victorianna:

Mostly finished the porch. I broke a lot of spindles while working on this. Just missing a couple.
Adding half scale spindles to the shopping list.

Received the holiday rug for the living room.

Picked up some Blue Buffalo dog food for mini Macy May.

Un-bashed Victorianna:

This is how she appeared when I bought her off craigslist a couple years back.
I would still love to get my paws on another.

After some exterior work:

I plan on keeping most of the (some what hideous) decorating as it is, but this railing and the visible steps had to go.

Once I pulled the railing off, I decided to tweak things a bit.
I removed some of the carpet to add a hearth

Using some extra stone I had (textured paper), the hearth was complete.
That is when I noticed the stairs had been glued upside down.

I was actually able to pull the stairs out without ruining any of the wall paper.
I am going to keep the alcove to store fire wood.
Another painting my husband did is on the mantle with some freshly printed brick for inside the fireplace.

Once I get some spindles, I will be able to finish this room.

I don't want to put a lot of money into this house, but it really needs a kitchen. We all know how expensive kitchens are, even in mini.

Years back, my friend gave me an old kitchen design kit that are perfect for half scale. I used some pieces in my Rosedale kit, but still have a lot left over.

To be different, or to go against doll-housery rules, I am going to put the kitchen in backwards.
(Insert gasp here)

I am undecided if I will hang the upper cabinets or not.
(middle cabinet is holding the top cabinets up)

I don't think it will be all that bad.
The kit only came with one sink base, which is in the Rosedale.
Somehow I will add a sink to one of the cabinets

Leon's Mansion:

In my many 'adventures' over the years, the railings for Leon's  home went MIA, or I threw them away. After a quick email to the shop owner, I had new railings within a week.

Another beautiful rug from GreenGypsies to make the dining room complete.

On to the Rosedale:

My plan is to continue to finish this house in various shades of gray.
Not 50 shades of gray - more like 43. 

This is the kitchen that I used the other pieces from the kit.

The attic floor has been finished off.
This will be a sewing room.

The resident of this house just received her exercise bike that she most likely will never use.
It is a ACME magnet from ebay.

Polly Pocket shoes and coat.

Fan and accessories in the bedroom.
I suppose I could have the 50 Shades series  tucked somewhere in this room.

While cleaning up the med closet at work, I came across this container that held some medication samples.

How much did our medication prices go up so doctor's offices could get fancy sample containers?
Anyway -
This will somehow house my broken Bespaq tea cart with a tea set.

Crossing enemy territories (the dog), Lilo managed to make it to  my lap just like the old days.


  1. I love seeing the houses getting a refresh! It must feel good, too!

    1. Feels good to get things accomplished!

  2. I've always wanted to do a black and white build, I'll be watching the Rosedale's progress with much interest.

    The Victorianna reminds me of those horrible commercials where someone adopts a starving dog and saves its life.

    1. This is definitely a challenge. I may have some half scale extras for you soon

  3. I'm so glad you were able to get the railing for the Leon resent to you! That's awesome!

    1. Yes!! It will probably take another year before I get to painting it.
