You can sure tell the difference in 'store bought' compared to what fortunata does. I bought this doll house for my neice for Xmas a couple years ago. She still loves it. I bought it at one of those membership warehouses.

I love what fortunata does. Takes a lot of craft and patience.

Default Restoration

I spend my free time restoring my 1799 cape on the water in Perry, Me. We are doing a period restoration that takes time and money-which is often in short supply-may be a few years till we are finished.

I guess my hobby would be drawing and painting, but I make money at that so I don't know if that counts. Otherwise I'd go with holding the couch down while I babysit the TV

That sounds like a good winter hobby.

Right now my main hobby is Maine, and learning the skills I'll make use of when we move there... canning, gardening, knitting, and other country skills.
