    Dollhouse Miniature Christmas Scene 


              If you didn't know my favorite hobby is Dollhouse Miniature's 1:12 scale. This has been a life long endeavor. I remember when it all began I was 16 and I saw a Dollhouse at Franklin's Nursery.  It was a Farm House with no embellishment's nor furniture. It was made of beautiful light colored wood with bare walls and flooring. The front door had faux glass window 2 pairs of stairs and 2 faux fireplaces to my delight. It's was not electrified and still is not. It spoke to me I had to have it. I stared at it. It was on sale. Many people were walking past looking at it as well as me. They had a few models already built and being discontinued. I hurriedly looked for a worker to help. Although, it was alot of money for a 16 year old back in those days. As I am 46 now. I believe it was a little over $140.00. I opened my wallet I had several weeks worth of work money that could cover the cost. I took the leap.

  I was so excited I had a worker help me to place it on top of the cart. This was a huge 8 room Dollhouse. I checked out and slowly went to my car. I had a 2 door sedan.  It didn't fit!! As I stood in disbelief.. I cried. I can laugh about it now. But then not so much. I took it back in and asked for them to hold it for me till I found a friend with a larger vehicle to pick it up. They said fine I had till closing. I found a friend that came to my rescue and brought his SUV. I was so relieved and happy at the same time. The Farm House made it to my home and my life long passion began. Everything I see I question if it can be used in miniature,lol. I never knew this would be a hobby for life. It's wonderful, expressive, and creative. I will be sharing more on my hobby with all of you. If you like to visit my YouTube page you can go to my play list and you will see my Farm House and some projects that I put together. I am currently working on a Halloween Haunted house it is slow but steady. See my video's below on it's progress.
