My Loft Kit Has Arrived

I recieved my order from  yesterday afternoon.

I bought the  MiniTown Loft Kit  ,  the  Components set  and the  Single French Door

I think that this has to be one of the easiest house kits to construct.  There are only 7 pieces, including the dowel loft support, to be put together.  It has a groove construction, everything fits together very easily.  There are only 4 steps in the assembly instructions.   I'm glad that I bought the components set and the door,  I don't want to learn how to build and fit windows and doors as part of this project.  I'm not sure if I will use the stairs from the set, I may try to build a spiral staircase.  I think that a spiral staircase would fit the small space well.  I'm really not sure yet, there are so many decisions to be made.  I think that there are more than when we built our real house. 

Then I bought a few supplies

Museum Wax   I need this to tack down all of Jaynie's vases and things. 
Grandmother Stover's Glue   It says that it is the same as Yes glue,  I'm going to try it for making books.
Lycopodium  This is a big package.    I had bought a small package from some where else and I really like it.   I want to make a few Christmas trees, this package will be plenty and I will have lots left for plants.  The piece in the picture is only a small portion of the package.

And some plastic sheets

White Small Hexagon tile      I think this would be good for lots different tiling needs.  This comes in a large   11 x 17" sheet.   I think I may try painting it for backsplash tile in the kitchen.
1/4" Square Clear tile     A  7 x 12" sheet.
Rippled Water     A   7 x  12" sheet.

I really like these but not sure how I will use them.   I may save a piece of each to use to texture clay.

I also bought some electrical supplies but I'm not sure if I'll use them on this project.  I could not resist buying them while I was getting 20% off my first order.

I bought a few miniatures, some that I really like and  some that I was really dissapionted in the size.  I really should know better by now not to buy miniature if the measurements or materials are not listed.  I'll try to get pictures to show you tomorrow.

Your comments and advice is welcome and appreciated.

Thank you for visiting, Mary
