Georgian Town House....




An addition to the 'petite maison' is this 1:144th Georgian Town House.
I made my little kit faithful to the instructions, not thinking that perhaps the kit could be improved upon....but as your saw on Catherine's blog http://kilmouskiandme.blogspot.com/ this is the case and Catherine made some wonderful improvements and fabulous additions to her kit. Saying that, I so enjoyed making this! But what I think I enjoyed the most was that Catherine and I made our little house in conjunction with one another....while she is of course in America and I am in Australia....our email boxes were kept very busy!!
The house is a little time consuming, the lighting proved a bit of a challenge at times, but all-in-all now that I have finished (and I hasten to add, that it is no where near as perfect as Catherine's) I am very content with the progress I made....(all except for the blister on my finger from the soldering iron this morning...lol)

Linda, Catherine and you must have really had such a good time working on something together. I really love this house and how they both turned out! It will be so much fun to see what happens with the interior!

Lucille said...

What a very challenging project! You did a superb job. How difficult it must be to work with this scale. The house looks so right in La Petite Maison. You are so very accomplished. Congratulations, Linda.

OMG, when I first saw these photos I thought I was looking at a 12th scale house in a real home. When I saw that it was a 144th scale house in a 12th scale house I said a naughty word.....!

Amazing.....just amazing

Es preciosa, me encanta. Y el hecho de haberla trabajado juntas, todavia la hace mejor. Que divertido!!!!!!!!
Habria alguna posibilidad de que me dijera donde la habrian comprado, pues se me han puesto los dientes largos ( esto es una frase tipica española, cuando quieres decir que algo lo quieres).
Por favor!!!Un beso

My jaw is hanging open! I can't imagine making something of this scale! Beautiful, Linda.

By the way, I just visited the Tiny Dollhouse shop for the first time. Amazing miniatures!

Je m'appelle Cynthia said...

I have a great aunt and uncle who made a remarkable dollhouse - a replica of their own house. So it's fun to come to your blog and now get immersed in this world again. I admire your productivity and passion with this hobby (business?). I need to get to know you and your blog more.

Linda, Your Tiny TINY house is Gorgeous and Just PERFECT for the Petite Maison! Where did you get the kit? I am interested in trying to make one for my Lovely Old Dollhouse!
I saw Catherine's too, and think it must have been great fun to have each other to help work on it together from a distance!
And It is Even LIGHTED!

Oh my, seeing it all lit up in the first photo I did think it was a full size doll house in your room.
I think you have done a splendid job on it. It really does look amazing!

Papillon Bleu said...

Is this a tiny house in your dolls' house or is it another dolls' house in your real house?
I am so confused sometimes with minis, I no longer in what scale I see things! :))))

J'espère que ça va Linda!

I can not believe it is perfect.
Looking at the pictures, I did not realize that it was a house 1 / 144.
Perfect and beautiful, I love it.

Julie said...

Your pictures are beautiful! Your miniatures are beautiful! Wherever did you find the kit for the 144 scale georgian town house??

Jean Day said...
