My MiPad is here! (20% off sale ends today)

I added floor plans 1 and 5 to my floor 3 of my MiPad from Miaim Miniatures by Elaine Shaw. I saw the rooftop garden in Ulrike's dollhouse and emailed Elaine if I could get that as well. I don't think it's on the website yet, but email her for pricing and availability. Everything is made in London, and ships flat packed so shipping is affordable (I'm in the US) and it's really easy to assemble.

The blue windows are actually clear acrylic with a protective film on it. I thought it looked cool blue so I left them on for these photos but I'll take them off when I decorate. The roof top "glass" railing is what the windows will look like when the film is removed.

I can't wait to start decorating. I'm trying to find some fun wallpapers to give it a Palm Beach, Miami feel. With the holidays coming, I hope to carve out some time to decorating.

The 20% off sale ends today, Dec 22, so if you've been thinking about getting a MiPad, now is the time to do it.

MiPad is up and running

So we bought our first house a year ago, and I'm finally getting around to setting up some of my dollhouses. We've had renovations that have gotten in the way but I found a corner in this room where the MiPad now lives. I think the bathroom turned out a little too large so I'll shrink that down a bit, but for now I have a least one completed dollhouse. Many more to come as I unpack more of my minis.

It's not you, it's me.

Dear Blog, I've been cheating on you. I got hooked on Instagram and I've been neglecting you. Instagram is just so easy and fast and you well, you're slow and time consuming.

It's not over, I still want to make this work but if you want to know what I'm up to more often, follow me on Instagram @xsmodern (mini world) or @notaneichler (real world)

So, it's been almost a year since we bought our first life size house and I'm finally finding permanent homes for my mini houses. This weekend I dusted off the MiPad, The Antrim and Kaleidoscope House. I realized I REALLY need to find some better organization options for my mini storage. It was a hot mess finding everything.

I didn't make a ton of progress but I got 80% of the furniture in place. I need to find all of the accessories.

I bought my daughter the Lori Loft to Love dollhouse and most of the extra sets. This weekend was the first time she was really interested in minis. I think I'll bring her with me to the Good Sam Show in San Jose next month.

I'm loving the Lori Accessory sets sold by Target. The bathtub is great and everything except the sectional sofa is 1:12 scale and at $13-18 you can't beat the price.

More to come as the houses get accessorized.

Eames Tandem Sling Airport Chair

I'm sorry it's been so long. Working on the real house has taken priority over the mini houses. I'm hoping to find some time this summer to start unpacking and get back to mini life.

I forgot that I never posted about this chair before. A few years ago a woman reached out to me for a custom order of an airport chair. Once a week her son flew to grad school, slept at the airport, spent all day in classes, then flew home to work his full-time job. As a graduation present she wanted a miniature airport chair replica to commemorate his strenuous year. I made this
Eames Tandem Sling Airport Chair for her. He loved it and uses it as a business card holder.

In other news... I'm finally starting to update my big house blog. Here is the
before & in progress Master Bedroom of my real house, more pics at My So Called Eichler.
