Originally I intended to use more dark green, especially the gold-lined curved slopes ftom the Emerald Night, on the sides of the corner and between the floor; but it ended up looking better in white (and some gray)... And the name stuck. (After all, there's a jeweler's shop on the ground floor.)
Andreas, please revisit my MIA's DESIGN STUDIO - A MOD and a creation is born of the MOD! http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/307492 I have given you the credit for the "SEWING MACHINE"!!!
I hope you like my version!!!!!
Put this up on CUUSOO, it's unbelievable! I'd buy it in a heartbeat, and that would mean $1.50 for you :-)
You're probably amongst the top 5 MOC designers in the world, I'm always so amazed by your creations.

You say you got the one's that are usable in a city. Does that mean that you know what's in the packets before you open them?
I checked the barcodes in the early series and the dots in later ones, but sometimes I just grabbed the bags randomly, so I do have some of the others (that's why I said "mostly" :) ). In the recent series, I prefered to buy only a few randomly and bricklink the rest.
It's just not fair. Excellent, you are quickly becoming one of my all-time favorite builders. Did you have to take apart the big street scene to make this? I think I'll take another hour to stare at this.
A great looking modular - very nice looking stonework!
I like it

Most splendid exterior, and the interior is beautiful Dolls House detail, right down to your choice of tiles !....most pleasing, I`m in the process of constructing a palace/house and your building is more inspiration.....well done
Such detail!! Great build, its got loads of fun playable feature and its amazing! I love the use of the friend drawing board!
If you have the type, could you please check this out?
Another amazing modular house! It is amazing how many different pieces you have. I noticed the Ollivander's sign from the Diagon Alley set, and you also seem to have every minifigure from every series. How big is your layout going to end up being? A great addition to the Pet Shop Street.

Did you have to take apart the big street scene to make this?
Goodness, no! They all will be part of a bigger city. (And other than having more space to place this building, it wouldn't help brick-wise since the Pet Shop street scene uses hardly any white and dark green.)

Could I please steal your Idea?
I wouldn't call it stealing. :) We all get inspired by things others do...
It's amazing I started off the same way as you in doing the sewing machine but got stuck! Could I please steal your Idea? I like this set because it represented me! I went to A&D and FIT and was a costume design major! So I couldn'y wait to get this one!
Well you never seem to not amaze me with your highly detailed work! I do not know where to begin nor to end (that's the scary part)! I loved as always seeing your interiors! I love the Arab shopper! You must have seen by now my LEGO World Mini Figures (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/268224)! And the strange thing is you gave the New FRIENDS mini set a home just like I did (much humbler)MIA's DESIGN STUDIO - A MOD and a creation is born of the MOD! ( http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/307492) please stop by both and tell me what you think!
