That reminds me of the film “Bonnie and Clyde". Can’t wait to see the finished product!

Those winter model-Ts are crazy! Please tell me your house has snow in the yard and on the roof.

Very interesting. Just when I think I’ve guessed the direction you’re going in you do a U turn and I have to guess again.
Looking forward to watching this. Please post lots of pics of the vehicle build. I love to see the process =0)

Ooohh… Now I’m so excited to see it!

Just remember, Ford said you could have a model T in any color you liked, so long as it was black.

Can’t wait to see your build!

It takes someone as skilled as you to show me that we don’t always have to take the kits exactly as they come. What a great transformation.

They’re all lovely and neat - as per your usual standard. Thankfully my fabric bolts were 17th century and didn’t need labels!

Wow. So realistic! And some fabrics I recognize. Love that spinning wheel! Makes me want to do a Sleeping Beauty type mini.

I think this is the most beautiful dollhouse I have seen! This is so very inspiring, and as I am new to the miniature world, I can appreciate how much time went into this. SO very beautiful!! I can see lots of warmth in this home and so I can tell you are haunted by your childhood home…but in a good way!

Since I’m not on the blogger platform, my guess is Google has booted us non-blogger people again, this time from their blog rolls. I now use Feedly reader to view blogs since I never had a blog roll. I know over the years I’ve lost viewers because I’m not on blogger. :no:

And on another note, Pepper of Michimoo Miniatures commented about blogger not updating some links anymore… and I just realized I hadn’t seen your last two updates in my list! Why? Is there something different I should be doing??? I don’t want to miss Anything you are showing Brae!!!

Oh wow what a great way to fix it Brae! I would have been trying to emboss it from the back in an effort to match it.. I know it rarely works right. You can’t get the crisp edge unless you have the shape to press it into. You’re so inventive!

When you can create like this, you have a very active imagination. I bet your brain never shuts off & you design in your sleep.

This is breath taking.

I Applaud you Loudly, for tackling the changing of the bulbs in the 3-armed chandelier! All of your efforts towards that end as well as the other up-grades are Perfect!
And the hanging single fixture now looks Very EXPENSIVE with it’s new gunmetal finish and the new LED light; this fixture looks TOP DRAWER!
Beautiful Work Brae!

No, I haven’t found the paint to be an issue mainly because the lights don’t get handled much.

Sheila [Visitor]

I’m glad I’m not the only one who gets bothered by non matching pieces. I love the finishes you chose.

I’m curious about paint adhering to the wires. Do you have trouble with it flaking off after a time or since the wires don’t move much in the fixture is that not really an issue?
