I was out getting some last minute things for
Thanksgiving dinner. My market was out of
sharp cheese. Can you believe that, they were
all out. Well, what puts the real favor in the
cheese mix of baked macaroni than sharp cheese.
So now I'm driving out of my normal area. I come
to an intersection where this guy is selling odds and
ends on the corner. I hit the brakes
when I saw something big and pink in the corner.
I looked quickly in the back of the car, the eggs are OK.
I parked the car and casually walked over. As I get closer,
I can see it is what I thought. I walked over and
tried to look cool and not excited. I looked at everything
first and then walked over to this.
2001 Grand Hotel!
I doesn't have the furniture or front doors. Still not too
bad. It doesn't have the second bed/bathroom thingie. Still
not too bad. It doesn't have the check in desk. That would be
too much to hope for. There aren't any cracks and nothing
is broken. So, I ask him how much. He say $4.00.
Now, do I need another structure? No! Do I have
space for another structure? Not really! Should
I buy it anyway? Yes! I almost tore my pocket off given
him the money. Check out the redo of the front of the Grand
Hotel in Roville. The windows are also used. In Circlez
City Women's Conference the hotel was also used.
These are both good sites if you like clothing, props, and dolls!
It is in need of a good cleaning. I will do that next week.
This week will be too crazy.
I have seen the hotel re-done by a few people and have
seen bits and pieces of in used in dioramas. I have seen the
front of the house in Roville as a the Lilac Bakery. (see above)
So for me the question is do I keep it whole or in pieces.
I have to find out what can be taken out. I don't think
I would want a salon where it is. Should I try to chase down
the missing pieces for the hotel? I have seen item time to
time on ebay. I read a post (you most check it out) on
A Doll Affinity of a women who has been working on
her doll room for 17 years. Slowly collecting pieces.
That makes me a baby at it.
I always love this horse shoe shaped sectional about
I love the windows too!
It has one of the beds. The purple thing fits in the slots
and joins the parts of the house together.
Both the phones are there. This one has the stool.
The bathtub/bed should have been here. It may be
hard to find. I might have to come up with something
new for this spot.
I plan to start my house painting of my houses in the new year.
I guess I need a big can of primer in.
