Tracking down Bauder-Pine furniture for the Mansard Victorian

I plan to furnish the Mansard Victorian with as much Bauder-Pine and Cassidy Creations furniture as possible. This means keeping a close eye on eBay, Etsy, and other places where thirty- to forty-year-old half scale miniatures might show up. (I’ve previously posted about Bauder-Pine furniture here and here, and you can read up on the… Keep reading »

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.… Keep reading »

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… Keep reading »

Braxton Payne fireplace with added built-ins

As I mentioned in my last post, I spent a lot of time arranging furniture in the Mansard Victorian to find a space to use this Bauder Pine corner cabinet. Literally the only corner I could make it work is this one in the living room, with a fireplace next to it. I tried out… Keep reading »

Mansard Victorian – making plans & cutting holes

Now that the Craftsman bungalow is finished, I’m going to dig in to the Bauder Pine Mansard Victorian shell I bought earlier this year. The house came with two side additions that I decided not to use. I don’t like how much they stick out, or the flat roofs. They don’t look like natural extensions… Keep reading »

A 1:12 Mansard Victorian, and new (to me) Bauder-Pine furniture

When I was working on my big post about Bauder Pine, I chatted with a woman named Ginger who said she had the same Mansard Victorian house as me, but hers is 1:12 scale. She told me Frank Moroz, who was Pat Bauder’s partner at Bauder-Pine, built it for her in the seventies. She had… Keep reading »

A brief history of Bauder-Pine (and a new dollhouse!)

Warning: long post incoming! I recently bought this 1:24 scale Bauder-Pine shell off eBay. I think this house was simply known as the Victorian, but I’m dubbing it the Mansard Victorian. I’d seen this house once before when someone posted about it on the Greenleaf forum. The side additions are not attached, and I’m going… Keep reading »

Attic additions and another Bauder Pine trunk

About a year ago I posted about the Bauder Pine attic roombox inside a trunk. Recently I spotted another one on eBay, but this was a Spanish style. I was going to bid on it, but I always wait until the very end of the auction, and this time I forgot that I had to… Keep reading »

Attic trunk roombox by Bauder Pine

It turns out my new house has A LOT of fruit trees. For the past five weeks I have been dealing with a huge harvest of plums and peaches. I’ve made 30+ jars of jam! But it’s dying down now, so I can finally start to break in my new workshop. The new workshop doesn’t… Keep reading »

Things I found while packing

So, I moved. From start to finish, it happened pretty fast, but it didn’t feel that way when we were carting carloads of stuff from the old house to the new house — including 20+ dollhouses! Here’s Rosy, a bit out of sorts, sharing the back seat of my car with several dollhouses during the… Keep reading »

Queen Anne Rowhouse — bed with a cross-stitched cover

Not to be confused with the Rowhouse’s other bed with a cross-stitched cover, I just finished up a bed for the attic bedroom. There’s a long story behind this, so sit tight. (Or scroll to the bottom if you just want to see the end result!) When I was working on the Rowhouse’s stair rooms,… Keep reading »

Cassidy Creations cottage bed bash

After putting all the furniture back in the Queen Anne Rowhouse, I decided to change some rooms. This is what I had planned for the upstairs bedroom. The hand-painted washstand and blanket chest are Bauder Pine. The rest of the furniture is a scratch built set that I bought off eBay, and not very nice.… Keep reading »

Bill Lankford cottages in 1:24 scale

These are two half scale Bill Lankford cottages I bought separately off eBay. The one on the left is officially called “A Place for All Seasons” because it came with two bases, summer and winter, that could be swapped out. (Mine only came with the summer base.) The one on the right is fully enclosed… Keep reading »
