Dollhouse, busy projects, and the old camera gives up the ghost

Work progresses on the dollhouse. I’ve been putting up very small clapboard siding. It’s made from card stock file folders, cut into strips, folded and glued. The paper is easy to handle and shape around things like gables and window frames, and the effect is quite realistic. I can hardly wait to get to painting it.

I’ve been spending a lot of time on life projects, too, including reorganizing much of the house, preparing for Open Studios in November, and clearing the decks to have our bathroom painted, hopefully this week. Maybe I should try installing the dollhouse bathroom at the same. 😉

Sadly, my Canon camera seems to have died. It was old and had lived a full life, but it shall be missed. These photos of the dollhouse were taken with a loaner, which I haven’t quite mastered yet. Still, behold:
