Glad to hear things are moving along (no pun intended). Such a curious photo - it reminds me of that Japanese film ‘The Ring’.
Hurry back, I am anxious to see what you’ve been working on. :)

As Larry says, you have been missed, but I’m so happy for you! Moving into a new place is always fun, but never more so than when it’s *your* new place.

Thank you so much! :D

I didn’t use any stain on the shingles. They are cedar, and I sorted through the stash I had using only those that were similar in color.

Evans Design are just great. I’m a complete mini building novice, but I purchased many sets of lights from them, they were fast and a fantastic company to deal with. I bought their fire kit and installed it in my daughter’s dollhouse fireplace. It looks very realistic and I spent many minutes gazing into the tiny living room :)))
Thank you for the great tutorial, let’s see if I can get even remotely close to Jack-o-lantern.

We have a duck toothpick dispenser just like yours. We got it from my late father in law and we were wondering where you got yours from. Thanks.

Interesting! I am always needing circles to make music boxes. The product demo showed it cutting cieling tile, which is a piece of cake because it it so soft. I looked to see if they sold a smaller cutting bit, but 1/8″ seems to be it. I’m sure cutting 1/8″ into plywood would cause a lot of vibration and noise. Maybe it would be easier (and quieter!) with a softer wood. I wonder what would happen if you used a small drill bit for cutting. Hmmm… Thanks for the demo!

Thanks for the heads up on this very useful tool, and the tips for using it Brae. Will add it to my Pinterest miniatures tutorial board because there are probably lots of people who will find it useful.

Thanks for the tutorial. I just got this attachment, too. I have not yet used the circle cutter, but did use the edge guide to cut a dado in a wall to run an electric wire. I was pleased with the tool in that use, as well.

Ai yi we had that exact Bug. We called it The Toad, both for its color and because it had a habit of breaking down in inconvenient places and needing to be, well, towed. That car, I swear.

These are so wonderful! There’s just something so funny about old cranky broken-down cars for some reason.

Fantastic!! It’s amazing how loud wood cutting can be. Now I know why all of the men in my extended family need hearing aids from years of working on the farm. Get some good protection for your ears! :)

I once read that the best way to honor your previous pet is to open your house to another animal in need of a home. :yes:

I found your blog through a photoset on Tumblr. I love your haunted dollhouse to bits, it’s perfect. Do you have any suggestions on where to get started for someone who has never made minis before except from a house kit once long long ago? I would love to make the items as well as collect. Any resources on tutorials or the like would be greatly appreciated!

Oh what a little sweetie!

Now Milo. Your mom is going to be building some wonderful houses that you’ll want to go exploring… Don’t be jealous…they’re not the right size for you.

But you will be in a very interesting and fun house!
Congratulations on your adoption,

I like Milo’s markings - he looks like a tortoiseshell in the photo.
My daughter had a Russian hamster ‘Janeway’ when she was young. The Russian hamsters seem to have a very mild-mannered nature.

Brae, I’m so very sorry about the passing of your little guy. We get so attached to our little pets and suffer when they leave us. At least, he’s at peace now and I know this is a great consolation to you.
