Today is the first time blogging on this site. Let's see what we can come up with. I am hoping to share my passion for dollhouses and miniatures with others of the world. It is a fun and relaxing hobby for me and I spend as much time as I can find working in miniature. I have built four houses and three roomboxes. Currently, I am an entrant in the 2008 creating contest sponsored by The entry deadline is 12/15/08 so until then I can't post any pictures of my entry. I can tell you is was a lot of fun to create and while I would love to win, the best prize is having the house here to look at and admire.

I am currently working on a scratch house. I am using foamcore to build the structure. So far I have two rooms done however since it is a work in progress, I am still making changes to those rooms. There will be the main room, where wine, cheese and bread will be offered for sale. In the side room, casks are filled with a variety of wine for customers to fill their bottles. To the right of the main shoppe will be a patio where the shoppers may take a break and sit in the garden with their wine. The floor in the main room is a vibrant mixture of colors on a stone floor. The cask room also has a stone floor, but the colors are darker and more subdued. I am hoping for a second level. I would need to make the stairs outside off of the patio. I have the picture in my head so I just need to bring it to life with my hands. The thought of building stairs from scratch scares me. I just need to jump in and make them.
