An update on our Toystore

For those of you that don't know....and for those of you that do know, but think I forgot about it....here's a quick update on The Star Wars Toystore....... I'm still working on it, lol, very slowly. For one, I have no where to put it when I'm finished with it, and I don't want to fill it, cause I know those darn cats of mine will come along and eat everything....they're already using it as a cat perch, and those that are small enough to walk through the front door, do. I think they think they've found a really cool hiding spot......and That got me to thinking of all the neat cat houses that could be made out of Styrofoam and plaster..... ha ha ha..... OK, back to this project.


I decided to add lips above the windows and doors using paperclay and plaster.



The plaster went here and there, with no real goal in mind....other than I wanted it lumpy in places.


See. Once you paint it, it all blends right in.

Still have to paint the outside it's final color, and finish some of the walls inside. One day it may even have toys in it....lol

Stay tuned for the next post......
I have recent pics of the furniture I got for Marsh Mallow Manor....
.....and I'd like for you to meet the family that will be moving into the Mouse House....

OH...Did I tell you that the 1/2 scale houses we found at Michael's Arts and Craft store are back......and this time they have castles....not to sure what the scale of it is....but I could sure see one covered in paperclay......wonder if the bf would notice a castle sitting over in the corner?? (I have been banned from buying any more house- LOL, ran out of room for them, Or so the bf says.....hehehe) Yes...There's always room for one more project down the road, Bah Hahaa!!

Until Next Time....

A castle isn't really a house .....is it????? LOL I had forgotten about the star wars toy store. It is nice to see it again.

The perpetual lament of a dollhouse lover-space space space :).

I think I have these woodcraft houses. Bought them all and they are lying in my cupboard still in the wrapper. lol

The added ledges look good- that was a good idea! I've been banned from adding more houses too Katie- but it's ok because I have one I have not even started under my bed and 4 of the Michaels kits that I want to make for my nieces-so I'll be busy for a long time! Maybe you'll have to do that too- start making them and then giving them away- although that could backfire if you couldn't bear to part with them!
