Okay, I am a huge fan of Robin Carey. Her Dollhouses are phenomenal! Two of her houses are up for auction on Ebay starting bid at 1.299.00 dollars. Buy it Now priced at 1.699.00. Whew!! Pricey but I am sure it's worth it. See for yourself:
I have some updates
on the Build-Along project. It’s been slow and steady. I received an email from
Real Good Toys informing that the photos are due in the first week of July and
not August like I had thought. This
means I am REALLY behind.I have two vacations
scheduled before the due date, so I have really been working to complete the
exterior of this Townhouse. Yes, I have changed it yet again and due to time constraints.
I may have to nix the SPA idea too. At
this point I just want to complete the darn thing. If it hadn’t been for my
indecisiveness in the first place, I would have been further along. I just got
to make it work. Here is my work in progress:
I had to cut out new windows.
Then fill in the gaps with 3/8 inch thick MDF to match the frame.
I was going to use cork board as bricks but time would not allow it. I remembered I had these wood strips and I could use them instead. Done.
I am happy with the way it is turning out.
I cut out trim and added siding to the front (I don't think I will have time to do the sides).
The exterior is shaping up!!
Testing out different windows and doors for fun.
I settled on these and decided the bay window need something more...and voila!! I am extremely satisfied with how things are turning out. Stay tuned more to come!
If you follow Mini blogs you should know by
now that two really cool modern contemporary dollhouses are/were listed on eBay.I knew this prior to catching up on favorite
blogs but it was interesting to read what others were chatting about these
houses. Especially about the Summer House Rundquist Vintage Dollhouse., this house is amazing. I
would love to own it.It was first listed at 500
dollars plus shipping. Now that’s a little steep even for that rare/hard to
find house. They re-listed for 400 dollars and now have a bid. I have to admit I got kind
of disappointed because I was hoping to watch that house (decrease in price) like I did
the Citadel dollhouse by Lolly’s. Hopefully one of my favorite bloggers will win this bid
so I can at least read about it.
this brings me to the Citadel dollhouse.I have watched this house on eBay go from 1500.00(I know right) all the
way down to 150.00 before finally getting a bid. I felt sad for the seller who
disclosed that she has health issues and is unable to finish the house. I wish
her well. It’s got to be difficult having to let go of your hobby due to
Now there is a new trend of dollhouses and kits on eBay listed at crazy high
prices. Every one of them is so called rare/hard to find items. I know I have
said this before but I will say it again, this is an expensive hobby. I can’t
help but want them all. Thank God for self-control or I would have bid on a
500.00 dollhouse made mostly of foam core or a "pre-built" dollhouse with the
side panel hard to close/open.I
dedicate this entry to the winners…may you get all the joy in the world from
these favored dollhouses (and blog about them).
