Why, yes. Yes it is.
I have only been nibbling at the edges of miniatures with the move and such. I got a few new things like this super nifty Halloween chair from Kris Compass:
See how nicely it matches the stuff on my kitchen counters!
And Patie over at Minisx2 had a sale – bless her heart – so I was able to get this chair and table set I have been wanting for a while:
I also had a momentary lapse and got the Miniatures.Com contest kit. Maybe, just maybe, I will actually get something completed in time for the contest entry? I didn’t wait until November like I did with the Fascination Station. But, I am making no guarantees.
And I spent some time over this snowy winter (for us) trying to make some sense out of the room that will ultimately be my dollhouse/craft room. This is in the crudest of organizational states.
I am hoping to get it to some fancier place at some point in the future (after the living room, dining room, bedroom, laundry room, etc.). I even have a very rough Live Interior sketch:
A built-in platform for dollhouses with storage underneath, shelves, and a work spot. I have a plan at least.
So, I haven’t completely neglected minis.

I almost have a new functioning kitchen!
Why is this taking so long? Well, the truth of the matter is that we are slow. And there have many side trips while waiting for the counter tops to be put in place. I decontructed the dining room area and constructed the bathroom. And we are doing all the work ourselves – staining cabinets, etc.
So here is what we have so far:
Did you notice the pantry? Another side trip. And it is getting filled up already!
I even built myself a little bookcase for cookbooks. (Sorry, the picture is a little fuzzy – oops!)
And I got in a little creativity with my bathroom window which is decorated with Gallery Glass.
It’s almost like decorating a dollhouse, but bigger!

I am a terrible blogger. I admit it. So there.
My husband and I have been devoting all of our days to revamping the future home in some hope that we might get moved in at the end of the Summer. One goal for the move is to have a functioning kitchen.
So far we have taken the kitchen from this:
A functioning bathroom is also in the works. Sorry, no pictures yet.
My days have been filled with construction, but I want to acknowledge the passing of one of the guys in my life. RIP Oliver who lived to a ripe old age. In his prime, he was “in charge” and a complete rapscallion. He will be missed.
