Quarter Scale Villa

Well since I don't have anything recent to post, I thought I would share with you all a project that I worked on last year.

For Christmas 2010 my wonderful sister in law gave me The Villa from Suzanne & Andrews Minis.
It's a beautiful quarter scale kit.  I had always wanted to try 1/4 scale but was always scared of it.  So this was to be the first quarter scale house kit that I would work on.  It was very challenging, but I am so in love with the finished product. 

And here it is......drum roll please........The Villa

In later posts I will go through the rooms showing more detail.  I am done the house and the interior but I do still need to work on the landscaping.....maybe a project for a rainy day.....just not THIS rainy day.

It's been over a year now.....

.....since my last post, and so much has happened.  I have moved which is the primary reason that my blog was put on the back burner.  I have a super craft room now, but I just have to get it a little more organized before showing it off.

I was hoping to have my Lily dollhouse finished by now, but yet it sits with half finished walls and cob webs in the rooms.  Last night, I decided enough was enough.....no more procrastinating.

I got out my swiffer duster, and defeated the cobwebs.  I even glued some trim and door frames in place (that's my way of showing my commitment to getting this done).  So now my goal is to get this house done before the beginning of December.  

I don't think that is completely unattainable.  Just need to commit to doing it.  Which I have.

So last night I took all the painted window sashes and glued in the "glass".....tedious but needed to be done.  So now I will get all the windows on the house.   Yay, something done. 

If you are reading this....yes you....anyone....anyone....then you have my word that I will be posting here a lot more with progress not only on my Lily but my other two large dollhouses.

Maybe even posts on other projects that I have done over the last year.

Stay tuned.......
