The Shop by Bauder-Pine

Last month, this cute half scale dollhouse showed up on eBay. The description attributed the house to Robert Bernhard of Dolphin Miniatures. Curious about it, I reached out to Cathy Miller-Vaughn, the current owner of Bauder-Pine. She started working for Pat Bauder in the nineties, and she knows the names of a lot of people […]

Egg carton quoins

Now that I’ve added 1/2″ of depth to the front of the Mansard Victorian to accommodate the side addition (shown here and here), I need to finish the front edges of those pieces before starting on the inside of the house… which means I need to decide how the house will be finished. My original […]

Mansard Victorian — more bulking

To accommodate the addition I’m adding to the side of the Mansard Victorian, I had to add 1/2″ of depth to the house. I started by gluing 1/2″ strip wood to the front edges of the house and top edge of the front panel, as described here. The front panel now sits 1/2″ out from […]

Petite Properties cupboard stairs

The Mansard Victorian shell didn’t come with a hole for stairs. I’m not opposed to leaving the stairs out of a dollhouse, but for this one I decided to add a false staircase. I might have gotten the idea from the Bauder Pine Colonial, which has a hidden staircase that runs up behind the fireplace. […]

Mansard Victorian — bulking up the house

Okay, that’s a weird title, but I couldn’t come up with a better way to describe what I’ve been doing to the Mansard Victorian for the past month or so. This all started because I wanted to add an addition to the side of the house. The addition is a long-discontinued Houseworks 1:12 scale bay […]

Craftsman bungalow vignette – finishing the porch

Back in June, I started the porch on the Craftsman bungalow vignette. Then I realized I should finish the interior windows and paneling before attaching the porch, while I could still easily put the vignette face-down on the table. Here’s where I left off. I positioned the porch so there would be the same amount […]

Firescreen mystery solved!

I guess I didn’t do good job of sleuthing before my last post, because the firescreen mystery has already been solved thanks to a few reader tips and Google. Here’s one in the background of a photo of a Ginger Wyatt vase from eBay (from Pinterest): Interesting coincidence, but it doesn’t prove that Ginger Wyatt […]

The mysterious firescreen

Just now I was clicking through old Ron Rhodes auctions on Live Auctioneers, because why not, and I came across this familiar-looking firescreen… If you read my post about creating a stained glass cabinet for the Craftsman bungalow vignette, it’ll look familiar to you too! The title of this lot was Kummerow & Wyatt Dollhouse […]

Craftsman bungalow – starting the porch

The Craftsman bungalow vignette came with a 7″ x 3″ x 3/4″ block of wood to use as the porch. It also came with precut railing pieces, which I lay between the posts to see how they’re supposed to be spaced. Centering the porch on the door would look like this. This kit is a […]

The haunted house of my youth

Check out this house that’s on the market in the neighborhood where I grew up. This house is next door to one of my best friend’s houses, but I don’t remember it. When I showed her the listing she said, “Oh yeah, the haunted house!” which sounded familiar, but I still can’t picture this house […]

Craftsman bungalow window trim

The windows and door I’m using for my 1:24 scale Craftsman bungalow vignette are Real Good Toys components that I bought off eBay. I’ve never seen these available for sale individually, but they match the components in the (now discontinued) East Side Townhouse as well as the Queen Anne (which is only available in 1:12 […]
