Something To Hold Onto
Here's the time I make a confession: I don't measure. Okay, I sometimes measure, but mostly I "eyeball" everything. Making miniatures has much to do with patience. Unfortunately, I have none. I work with pieces before the glue has dried; my final fit is my dry fit; and if it looks to scale, it's to scale. So there you go: confessions of a manic miniaturist (good blog title for someone).
I made and installed a railing for the loft portion of my loft. Of course, I eyeballed the entire thing versus measuring anything, so it might look a little odd. But it's nothing a ton of accessories can't fix, or hide. I also continued working on the windows. Similarly, I've been asking my dad to bring me some spare plexiglass for about 2 weeks now because I'm too cheap to buy my own. Needless to say, my windows are glass-free. Apparently my family doesn't care about the overall health of my dollhouse dolls.
Speaking of, my ferret Patrick, whom I frequently write about, decided to steal and hide my look-a-like doll pictured here in her former glory:
So Patrick, if you're reading this (which I'm sure you are because you probably stole someone's laptop) please give her back.
