Some little things....

I have started working on some miniature furniture for my dollhouse. I started building this dollhouse sometime back in the late 70's. It's been put away for many years, and I just got it down from it's resting place and I've started working on it again.

I saw this Magnetic Gluing Jig and I just had to get one. I bought this one from Smaller Than life
It is the BEST thing! It makes gluing things up so easy! It helps to keep them square. The little magnets hold the piece firmly while the glue dries. I love this thing!

Here's a little chair that I'm making.....

I did this little bookcase first.....

Here it is all glued together.....

I am going to paint this one. It still needs a final sanding and I haven't decided what color it will be yet.

Same thing here....I haven't decided what color yet....
This is my baby.....I bought this saw when I started the dollhouse. It still works so well and I'm sure it has many more years of good use left in it.

I have a nice little belt sander, too, but I didn't take a picture of it, I'll show it to you at some point.
I worked in my garden today, digging out weeds and replanting a lot of my perennials. It was very hot out there this afternoon. I had to keep coming inside to cool off. It was good to see the sun shining though and I loved every minute of it! I'll remember these wonderful days during the long, cold days of winter!
So, everyone, have a wonderful weekend. I'll be attending my Grandson's football game (they are 3-0, so far) on Sunday morning, so I'll be going to church tomorrow.

'Til next time, Love ya, Jean

It is so good to have a project to make us happy. It would be so much fun to choose colors and designs for something like this.

Isn't it so satisfying to finally get going on a project that has been on hold. Looks like you are well equipped for your project. Can't wait to see what colors you choose.

Hi Jean and thanks for stopping by. What a cute dollhouse you have! I am amazed at the magnetic furniture maker, what a great idea! And I love that little blue and white sofa,wish I had a big one like it!
Have a great week,
