Welcome to my life . . . .
This is a blog about my passion: dollhouses and miniatures. This particular blog was started to follow my miniature dream: to create a Victorian Mansion. But work on my Mansion is slow. Very slow. Sloth slow. Ice Age glacier movement slow. Why? Because I am easily distracted by other personal miniature projects (I have 50+ roomboxes and 15 dollhouses in various stages of incompletion) and because I work for a miniature shop and am often up to my elbows in miniature projects that aren't mine! So, I thought, some artists work in a particular medium (woods, watercolors, clay, oils, etc.), I work in progress . . . .

Today I attempted to arrange the fireplace and two bookcases in the first floor of the library to discover that the rooms I had picked to be the library was not large enough for the furniture I had! The fireplace fit - but not the bookcases!
I tried to rearrange the furniture - what if I filled in the double window and put the fireplace and bookcases along the longer wall? What if I turned the bookcases to be at an angle? What if I only put one bookcase next to the fireplace (looked horribly off-balance). I was in a panic. I bought this dollhouse kit and am constructing an addition based on this dollhouse having two identical rooms one-over-the-other so that I could cut an opening out of the floor/ceiling to create one room. And now these two rooms are too small? Now what? Obviously time for a coffee and chocolate cookie break!
