I LOVE the clever ideas you come up with! What will you do with the exposed sides of the door? Do you cover it up with something? Can’t wait to see this completed. You are so talented!

Perhaps he’s a throwback to the original horse of a different colour? I love this piece and can’t wait to see where you use it.

What a difference! If it was made 35 years ago, then you’ve modernised it just with this one change. Love this pattern!

Thanks, everyone! :>> I see we have guesses for retro, modern, retro-futuristic and pizza joint. &#59;D

I am in awe at your prowess with the power tools - I haven’t yet progressed past sharp scissors.

The circle design on the door reminds me of the old tavern off campus we used to frequent when we were poor students (draft beer and cheap pizza). Mind you, there were actually two entrances, one for single men and one for “ladies and escorts".

I made a sandwich door a couple of weeks ago, only with popsicle stick pieces for the top and bottom layers. It works great! I am intrigued by your circle windows…are you going retro or modern for the contest? Hmmmm…..

I think that your griffin box is not only a great pattern Brae, but I love the color combination that you have chosen, and from the last photo, it looks just like silver metal filigree encasing the red. Beautifully done!

I see that this was done some time ago, and that you last received comments in December 2014. Well, rest assured that in 2015 you are still going strong. This is one of the best projects I have come across - a fantastic idea and fabulous execution. Thank you so much - I am making a dolls house for my granddaughter - the idea to spend as little money as possible - none, really - for the biggest value.

Hi Brae,

Thanks for the picture of the Dremel Circle cutter. My wife bought me one for Christmas, and I have been afraid to try it out! But your picture made it clear how the thing is supposed to work! Halfway there, I can finally see myself trying.

Your Creatin’ Contest start looks very cool! Can’t wait to see what it becomes!

LOL - Jane - the same happened to me:)))
Something that just is what it look like is rare in miniature blogs.
And I’m also happy, that Jasper is “real". He looks so cute!

Oh Brae, I’m curious what you have in your mind for this front(?). It looks very attractive.
Best wishes
Andrea

Is it terrible that I saw the ear plugs and just started to wonder what they might become or could be made into? I know sometimes a earplug is just a earplug…But that box they came in….

working hard on your contest house eh? &#59;)

Jasper is the sweetest looking cat…but that cabinet, that’s pretty sweet too!

You’ve got the jump on me, cutting into the kit first. I’ve got wiring supplies on order, I need to get the wiring figured out first because it’s going to determine how thick certain pieces of wood need to be.

I would like a mini version of the cabinet with the multi-coloured drawers. (Maybe a mini version of that very cute cat too.)

I wear those ear plugs at night (Husband snores like a bear) and they are excellent. I talked the joiners into getting a dremmel trio after one of your posts. I’ll have to have a go with the attachments. It looks far easier than using a jigsaw =0) Contest build is looking very interesting =0)

Hi Brae! I think that this stylized Horse tapestry is looking Lovely! I really like the colors you’ve chosen for it and the pattern that you have developed. The horses appear both noble and graceful.
And your cat looks comfortable. :)

Thank you so much for this tutorial. I have one, well two (in case I mess up) and wanted to paint the inside and out. I saw this in your mini home and fell in love. I do think it is one of the best claw foot tubs for the price and now I’ve just learned how to make it fabulous! (cheesy, I know) :)
Thank you for sharing.

Your tapestry looks great! Looking forward to your HBS CC. I’m now on my second cold. I lost 3 weeks in January, was better for a week and caught another one. Ugh I hate coughing. I need a cushioned seat like Jasper’s for a good cat nap!
