good morning to all...

these have kept me busy for the last month or so...they are re-makes from previous houses...but with some different colors and small details...

the yellow and green dutch colonial and the red barn house are almost "giants"...the bases are about 7" x 7 1/2"...overall height is around 7"...don't know how well you can see them but there are small rocking chairs on the porches...

my very best regards...

howard...

Nice!

I have a few of the "Dolly" houses known for their "pictures" in the windows--so I am partial to the last with the candles in all the windows.

Wow, Howard. These are wonderful. The porches on the first two are great, and so carefully done. And I love how colorful the third one is. Oh, and the door detail on the fourth. These are great.

"Set putzes to 'STUN.'"

You did it again, Howard. I especially like the Dutch Colonial and the Cape Cod. In fact the Cape Cod reminds me of a vintage tinplate structure.

Thanks for posting,

Paul
