#6 The Village
Topic: FUN STUFF
My daughter Crystal gave me my Christmas Gift early and it is the Greenleaf 1/4" scale village. I don't have the time to finish it before Christmas, but they seem to fit in with the other 1/4" dollhouses I have.
I have had so many splinters from this kit. The other kits are made of soft basswood that locks together, but this village has to be glued together and is made of very brittle wood. I think it would be easier to use the kit as a template for a foam core village. I have grown attached to this little village so far and I think I will keep it up year round. I have a long window that would look great with it.
Sometimes I get a kick out of SCI FI movies, and although I plan on having a friendly village. I can't help wanting to turn the village into M. Night Shyamalan movie THE VILLAGE with the forbidden color red, a blind girl, and "the things we do not speak of". Another wild idea that came to mind was to turn it into the Summers Isle village from the recent remake of the movie THE WICKER MAN.
Women Power!!! :}
