Happy Year of the Rooster!

Happy Year of the Fire Rooster!  

Here is a fancy celebration:

and here is some Chinese takeout to celebrate (from an Ann Vanture PaperMinis kit) and the green teapot is from TYA Kitchen:

Happy New Year!

Apparently for roosters it is going to be a rocky one, and I am a rooster.  But it's the year of the fire rooster and I am fired up!!

No. 48 - Dollhouse Elevator - Take Two!

The elevator is back up and running!

New Year, New Elevator Attempt.

I took the advice of Kitty and Kat Miniatures and  Shenandoah and stuff who gave some great suggestions after they saw the destroyed elevator, and it has been reinforced with metal triangles and glued with E6000.

And we stuck a rod through it so that it would stay close to the wall.  It seems to be working much better. 

And here is another view of the house.

At some point, I have to figure out what to do with the front of the house.  Since this house has grown from its original design, I am not really sure what to do as the front for the top 2 floors.   I bought a plexiglass wall, so I may create a little track for it to slide in, but then the track may get in the way of playing.  

I also have to attach the front bottom wall, which was made with some extra Malibu dolls house windows (I broke one and then ordered the wrong replacement.  Don't ask.). 

Anyway, here is the elevator stopping at the third floor. 

Have a great weekend!

Malibu Dollhouse - Living Room

I just found this picture that I took of the living room in the Malibu dollhouse when I first finished it.  

I made the pillow, the purple flowers were a NAME swap gift, the glass table is by PRD Miniatures, the couch is from MiniModernista, the other couch is from Dolls House Emporium (as is the plant), and the other coffee table is a napkin holder.

As for resolutions, I have just one this year (and it was one of my resolutions last year):

Finish my Malibu doll house!

Wishing everyone a wonderful New Year!
