Time for a Plan?

I have been eyeing this nifty little Plan Toys House on eBay this week. It doesn't look like it would take up a ton of space, a definite plus since the workroom is getting cramped, and I LOVE those panels. They give it a K House feel that works well with the light wood. I'd like to see how it works with 1:12 items though since I have the furniture set and it seems to run a little small. Anyone out there have this little jewel?

While window shopping on the Plan Toys website I also found this little house.

It's definately got a lot of potentional as well. Sure it's a little on the small side but it looks like it could be an interesting addition to the Green Dollhouse. Maybe a cabana or a Jimmy Neutron type lab... I kinda want them both!

K House Redo

Or two in one day what...WHAT? :)

So I spent a little time in the work room today putting together two scenes. I debated on posting this one later this week since I start my new job tomorrow and knew I'd be too busy to post much of anything but everything was all done so, VOILA, two posts in one day!

I've been on a teeny tiny mini binge lately, see above re: new job, and have been trying to use all of my new stuff. This set up started as mostly trying to find a way to showcase the incredible work of Mini Modernista. You can drool over her amazingness here on eBay. Trust me the pictures don't do her incredible work justice.

As happy as know I should be with the K House I think I just got a lemon. As in Lemon Yellow. I've mentioned before it was not as pictured so I am doing my best to make lemonade : ) Thankfully my wonderful guy spent a few hours today helping me fit a faux (removable) floor in the great room. I think it's a wonderful thing. It camouflages the discolored floors - God knows I was running out of rugs - and kinda gives it some realism.

One Bed Two Ways

I wanted to see if I could find a reason to work this pink chaise in to a setting. I liked this bed so much from my last post I used it again. For some reason I really like the pink and green color scheme in the polka dot room.

When my Ryan's Room coffee table arrived it was missing a leg so I improvised and used the legs from the dining room table to turn it into a desk.

I also REALLY hated the squiggly legs on this AG minis desk so I revamped it. Maybe I should have called this the deconstructed dollhouse blog because I am forever taking things apart to repurpose them.

And at night

With a sneak peek into the next setting : )

32 people....

That's more than the people in my everyday life that even know I have dollhouses! When I first started I didn't know if anyone would even see it. Then I got the first comment and I was hooked. Even 6 months later I still hit refresh to wait for the first comment after I post. So keep 'em coming. Let me know what you like, what you don't or what you'd like to see more of. : )

I'm back

I went upstairs to take a picture of the new workspace. The Kaleidoscope was sitting there empty so I couldn't resist setting up a quick scene. Plus I had two or three new things from summer that I hadn't used yet.

I have to admit my Kaleidoscope arrived more yellowed than it looked online. It's a little challenging to get the look I want but I still love the house.

Oh yeah, one other thing, all of these should be enlargeable...I think that's a word. : )
