greetings to all...

here is my little glitter house version of the "dolly front entry house"...mine is done with the ultra-fine glitter i've chosen to use on all of the "dolly" house reproductions made from Lynn's patterns and windows...

i've also used the corner fence detail that Laurie posted a short while back...here's the link...
http://www.cardboardchristmas.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1015

this is the seventh one in the series of ten "dolly style" reporductions i've built so far...i'll probably do at least one more...and that would be the large "rose window church"...i'll post a group picture later...

my very best regards...howard...

I love it, you know yellow and blue is one of my favorite color combination. The windows and door really pop!

update...02-01-2018...

thanks to forum member Lynn and her computer savvy friend, we now have yet another dolly house reproduction window...the one with the candelabra...see the PDF below...

a new window calls for another dolly house...so i took the first one we did and flipped the pattern...see the photo below...the original pattern is posted in this topic in a previous reply...

i'll post a finished picture of the project later...

my very best regards...
Howard...

update...2-27-2018...

i finished this dolly house reproduction project this afternoon...unfortunately the silver glitter i choose does not contrast well with the new candelabra window...

i may go back and add some more snow around the top of the chimney...see the yellow and blue version of the house posted just a few replies before this one...

my very best regards...

howard...

I think it looks wonderful, it's so nice to see the window found a good home.

This flattie is still one of my all time favorites :D
