The Lorny Bin, say what?

Way back when Mark Zuckerberg added the ‘check in’ feature to Facebook we were having a party and I decided to check in at my own home…. and the play on my name stuck…. so if you come visit, you too can check in at The Lorny Bin. It’s a crazy good time.

Lorna @ The Lorny Bin was named after her paternal grandmother, who was also a Lorna. I was blessed to inherit one of her most prized possessions, a very large Woodline Products Victorian dollhouse.

Mini mansion renovation. 1:12 scale

The dollhouse has been in storage for easily 25 years and I’ve been meaning to get started on it. The time has come. It will be a great project, my #minifixerupper #theminilornybin

I have been researching dollhouse miniatures and specifically my kit and just today found out it is a Woodline Products Victorian House produced around 1977ish and apparently it was quite popular. It is a large unit measuring 48″ wide x 36″ high x 19″ deep in 1/12 scale (1″ per foot).

Further research using my google machine located a couple of great blog posts about this exact model / kit and I could not be happier to learn more about it. You can check it out at Lori’s Magestic Dollhouses

I plan to DIY it all! Including the landscape. Did you know people make miniature flowers and plants. Like make them out of paper and they look like the real deal? There is a whole world of miniatures out there and I have been fully engulfed.

Until next time my friend,
