OMG! Life is super busy right now. Summer is almost over and I'm now back to my full teaching/singing schedule. So life is definitely full tilt right now. I want to do a quick post and thank everyone for the supportive and encouraging comments. You are amazing artists and I promise (first promise) to get caught up on your blogs too. You are all doing fascinating work and it's a pleasure to see your beautiful miniatures come to life. Keep up the great work!
So...my hope is to have my Blue Room done in a couple of weeks. I have to show it for the Midwest Miniatures Guild meeting on October 5th. Gulp. Yikes! More on that later. I want my next post of that project to be a showing of the completed project. Fingers crossed. More to come.
My second promise is a promise I made to myself. I promised I would not be a collector of many miniature projects and a" finisher" of none. But...I found this cute fixer-upper on Craigslist and I just could not let it slip by. So...after I finish Barton Cottage...I will get started on this dollhouse rehab project. I blame Fi from "A Passion for Miniatures." I read her August 11th blog post and was inspired. Thank you, Fi. There's a lady in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota with one less dollhouse and $30 bucks in her pocket. :)
Here's a quick peek at the fixer upper--and it's a real fixer upper. But it was just crying out for some love! So I had to get it. What period style do you think would work for this house? Please feel free to give suggestions or ideas. I would love the feedback!

|Notice the cobweb above the door frame AND the dead spider in the coweb. How's that for authentic miniature artistry?|
|Many...many layers of wallpaper.|
|It's got great bones...right...well...maybe?|
