Unfortunately, I've been a bit under the weather so I haven't felt like putting together any rooms. I've started four scenes but none are finished. The one above is a partial scene that I will not finish. I'm such a quitter, ey? And by "quitter", I don't mean socks that loose their elasticity and creep down into your shoe. I hope that I'm back to 100% in the next few days and can finish the other set-ups. Also, I will respond to the emails that I've received. I got through most but have a few left to reply to.
Let's see, um...Oh! I got an email from someone thinking about producing an Eichler dollhouse---oops!, I mean "Eichler-esque" dollhouse which I assume means it will have a lot of mid-century modern goodness and remind you of Joseph's endeavors. No details about whether or not it will be a kit or ready-built. No word on cost and it's nothing that will be available in the next year. They want to remain completely anonymous--and who am I to question that? Really, who am I? Ha ha---God, that's just awfully corny.
One more thing, I picked up some small lights from IKEA's new Solig summer inventory while buying the Virre bent plywood slide for my oldest... Uh oh! Time for an aside!---The Virre slide is so cute and actually looks like an elephant from the profile which makes you think of Eames. We are having a lot of fun with it...which might be the real reason why I haven't finished any mini scenes. It looks like we will be able to use the slide base as a table after the novelty of the slide wears off. It's been a good purchase so far.
...And I'm Back---so the lights are half domes, 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter and have watch batteries in them. They work well for the dollhouse whether you are using them as actual lights in the structure or around a pool scene or if you're using them as light to work and play by. They come in white, yellow and orange and cost $3.99 for a pack of three.
