Well, I may be crazy. I found this dollhouse at the Salvation Army Thrift Store yesterday for 25.99!!!
I could not pass it up. But, as I brought it in the door, it got bigger and bigger and bigger. It looked kinda small in the store. So my dear, wonderful, absolutely stupendous husband who probably thought I was nuts moves his stuff off the top of the storage drawers I have miniature stuff in and puts my dollhouse on it. And then he puts my action figures on the porch, takes photos, and sends them to me at work in an email with a sweet message. Lots of crap at work so it came at just the right time. Gotta love a guy who is ok with a HUGE dang dollhouse in a tiny study already crammed with my dollhouse junk.
The dollhouse is a Cherrydale made by Walmer Dollhouses. Real Good Toys has a Liliput Cherrydale version that is similar but fancier as far as I can tell. The simpler one sells for 159.00. This was already mostly put together except for trims, stairs, porch railing. And, some of that stuff is missing. It is supposed to be Victorian, but I am going to do a modern take on it. It will be a challenge as I am not really the expert on doing trim and stuff like that. A learning experience to be sure. It is 1:12 scale. It'll be slow going as I don't always have lots of time for minis, but it should be fun doing it.
Thanks, Craig. You are my prince.
