Customer Jon's Amazing Schoolroom

(If you click on the photos it makes them larger, and you're probably going to want to, because the detail in this is exquisite! - Wendy)

A couple days ago, one of our customers (a super spiffy gentleman named Jon) brought in a roombox he'd done to share with us.

Most everything in this school room was made by hand, by Jon himself.

We think it's just amazing.

He had just put the finishing touches on it that morning.

But the entire project took him about a year.

Meticulous and amazing work, Jon! Thank you for letting us take pictures and share your project with our readers! Absolutely gorgeous!!

And we hope you enjoyed looking at it! What are YOU working on over this long weekend? Any miniature projects? Hope you have a great weekend, no matter what you're doing! :)

Marilyn's Dollhouse Part 1: Delivery Day!

(Click on any of the pictures to make them bigger!) 

Sunday, July 13th, we delivered a dollhouse to a lovely lady named Marilyn! It just BARELY fit in the pickup truck.

We started on the house way back in October. This is how it looked when it came to us. 

 And this is what it looked on delivery day!

I took more detailed pictures of each room, and I'll post those in the next entry!

I hope Marilyn is enjoying her house as much as we enjoyed working on it. It was an honor. :)

Pictures of Wightwick Manor - Part 3 of 4

It's Christmas in July at Norm's Dollhouse!!! 15% off all Christmas items for the entire month of July!

And , in honor of it being "Christmas in July", I thought I would share some Christmas-sy Wightwick Manor photos with you on the blog!

We try to decorate the Manor for the holidays, and Christmas is the big one for us. It's a lot of fun dressing up this house for Christmas.

These pictures were shot a couple years ago, Christmas time. They were the first photos taken of Wightwick Manor by night. I might love it even more with all the lights on, after dark. Hope you like it too!

Pictures of Wightwick Manor - Part 2 of 4

So when last we left off, I was busily posting daylight pictures of the interior of Wightwick Manor so a customer of ours could pin them on Pinterest.

And I think I'll do that some more. :)

Little room between the dining room and kitchen. Pantry, maybe?
Stairs lead to the 2nd floor, right by the maid's room.

View from the 2nd floor, looking down at the foyer,
and the hand cut wooden floor of the ball room.

Pictures of Wightwick Manor - Part 1 of 4

Norm's has finally gotten a Pinterest, which promises to be fun and potentially addictive. Come pin with us!

Our shiny new Pinterest page lead to a customer asking if there were pictures of Wightwick Manor that she could pin on Pinterest.

Mini Wightwick Manor, Centennial, Colorado

There are a few pictures of the Wightwick Manor sun room in a blog entry here - Wightwick Manor Sun Room.

And we have a few pictures up on Facebook - Wightwick Manor on Facebook, but you can't pin from Facebook.

So, seemed to me I had no choice but to post the pictures of Wightwick that I've taken, right here!

So this entry is of the daylight pictures I've taken of the inside of Wightwick Manor.

Next post, the 2nd half of the daylight photos. And Wightwick posts 3 and 4 will be of nighttime at the Manor, from a couple Christmas-es ago.

Happy Pinning! And thank you so much to all of you who love the Manor too. And if you haven't gotten to see it in person, it's on display in the middle of our store. Stop by and see it sometime! :)
