Two evenings ago, I opened the box of my Westville, which I purchased at a half-price sale at HBS. I looked at the sheets of cutouts and the instructions, blenched, and closed the box.
I had been jonesing to build a new dollhouse–one look, and I decided to go on with my room by room rebuild of the big house! I will do the Westville, but I will have to take several deep breaths first. After the Westville, the Beacon Hill beckons. Oh me.
Printies in many scales. Wallpaper, books, tablecloths, labels, rugs, fabric patterns, and many, many accessories
Printies (My Small Obsession)
All kinds of links to sites with all kinds of printies (all scales)–wallpaper, flooring, boxes, plates, books, etc etc etc
Wendy's Minis (Pillows galore!)
The beautiful, handcrafted pillows in my collection come from Wendy Smale. In addition to pillows, she offers crystals, minerals, shells, and “scientific collections” for the dollhouse.
Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls, and Toys
Lovely museum in a historic house (house is worth the visit, even if you’re not interested in minis). The collection ranges from antiques to modern artisans. Note the extensive tiny circus! The trip through narrow streets of historic Denver is worth it.
Mini Time Machine Museum, Tucson, AZ
Must be seen to be believed. A huge collection of dollhouses and miniature settings made by prominent artisans, as well as a solid collection of antiques, in a beautiful building designed around the collection. All I can say is… Just Go!
