Brae, it’s quite surprising: I followed both your build and Keli’s closely – and then these two are placed at the top! Deservedly, in my opinion: and we’ve all seen how much thought, inspiration, & sheer hard work went into it.

There is also an article about flocking a fox in Dolls House World July 2013 (Issue 250), but it is probably the same as the one in AM as they repeat articles from the UK magazine sometimes.

Hi Brae,
Fantastic realism in your reproduction of Milo Valley Farm.
Great to see what you are doing.

Having seen something similar in a couple of very old buildings in central Mexico a couple *coughafewcough* decades ago, I can tell you that it looks remarkably close to how it was.

I can’t wait to see the rest of the elements you are planning for the barn!

yes yes, you definitely managed to capture the essence, it looks awesome!! And I can only imagine the fiddliness of the splicing, cursing is allowed in miniatures, well as far as I’m concerned anyway, or I would be a major hypocrite, haha! :D Very well done Brae!

The best results often require “an unusually high amount of curse words". It’s all looking stunning, and will no doubt be a museum worthy exhibit when you’re all finished! Great work!

The whole set-up may be damn scary, but it is damn magnificent, too! Actually, all of MVF has been over-the-top, and it isn’t even finished. I keep looking forward to seeing each new step.

I’m so relieved that the knobs in my basement are just leftovers that are no longer active. *breathes sigh of relief* The mini version looks fantastic!! You did a really great job. :)

Wheeeee!!!! Look at all of those mini goodies!! :) I hope the Iowa Magical Corn helped with his decision. The rest of it is currently buried in lots of SNOW. Ugh.

I sure hope that your Woodrow forecasts a short winter and an early spring, because it appears that he would like to “git bizy” an burrow… And preferably in a garden. :)

beautiful little creature Woodrow is, Reve is such a great artist! Had to look up the meaning of Groundhog Day and I hope for you all that it’s early spring: as far as I can see, Woodrow can’t see his own shadow, so should be okay :D Nice little scene Brae!

I always thought the weather predictions included a dart. Hmmm. I think the scientific books are to explain those years at university to your parents when you were really at the pub most of the time.

I’m not sure about intelligent little Woodrow, but Punxsutawney Phil didn’t so I guess that means an early spring…let’s hope!

That is such a nice photo of you, Brae! Love it! You look so pretty! Twice I had horses running away with me and it was not a good experience. The third time I got on a horse, it took me to the middle of the field and then refused to move. I can’t remember if I got off or what happened. it’s such a long time ago. That was my last time on a horse. I look forward to seeing what you will be doing with this horse.
