Decisions… decisions…. I’ve been locking down some choices for curtains and rugs for the dollhouse challenge. It’s been fun, but I have so many options that it’s been very time consuming. Having spent part of my career designing kitchens and bathroom remodels, I learned very quickly that clients become paralyzed  by too many choices. It […]

To get the dollhouse remodeling started, I had to add to another of my collections…  my Ryobi collection…power tools from Home Depot. I picked up a new  jigsaw.

Typically this isn’t how you’d size up  the construction of a new kitchen addition,but in Mini Realm it works.  I found the kitchen cupboards I wanted. After playing with different arrangements, I found one I liked and measured the space I needed. Just wait and see, how I fit in the stove and a couple […]

Typically, I don’t like a room to have furniture combinations that are matchy matchy, but in Mini Realm I like having sets that are complete. So I’m feeling torn. I like the […]

In the living area, my thoughts are going in this direction. What do you think? An Art Deco nod to Mid Century Modern … MCM, it’s another of my addictions…. anything from the late 30’s to the early 70’s…. in Mini Realm and in Real World scale. The wallpaper is a vintage roll, probably from […]
