Wightwick Manor, the house in the center of the whole thing, moved out on 3/20/17.
And that was that... or so I thought.
So, this is a Joseph Angel dollhouse finished in Purple (picture found on the internet).
And this is one finished for a Norm's Dollhouse customer ages ago. (Scanned from an old photo)
|Midnight in the Dollhouse indeed!|
David's dad, Norm Nielsen himself, finished the exterior of this house, and it sat in the shop window of Norm's Dollhouse for years. So it shouldn't mind sitting in MY window, I shouldn't think.
Hopefully, after not too much longer, it will have some lovely irises out front to keep it company.
David and I have talked about finishing the inside of this for YEARS and now... we can. It's empty, but full of potential.
I can't wait to get started. But step one is repairing the exterior. Sitting in a window, in full afternoon sun for years and years, has let the glue dry out and so some things need to be re-glued and that kind of thing.
And then, I can start thinking about the interior.
Of course, there's still the FAO Schwartz house. It's been here, neglected, for about a year and a half and it could use some love.
Since it's no longer in it's original state (it's been painted and re-wallpapered) I'm planning a lot of changes for it. I think it's going to be amazing. So much potential in one tiny little house.
There's another house here too. A different kind of project. But I'll have to show you that one a bit later.
For now, off to the "real" job that I love and that supports my dollhouse hobby.
Wish me luck with all these houses! So many tiny rooms... so little time. :)
