Dolls' Houses Past & Present

About Me

I’m old and small and live in north east England on the borders with Scotland. My hands and eyes are aging rapidly and I’m trying to get as much out of them as I can whilst I can. 

 

There used to be an expression that everyone had one book in them, though I think opinion has moved a little on that, but I didn’t want to write what was in me; the jumble of my thoughts, memories, opinions. I wanted something expressing more of warmth and more than a little love.

I enjoy history, crafts, making things. My abilities are more in the ideas department and sideways thinking than in the execution. A friend did dolls’ house things and I quite liked the idea of miniaturisation or the detailed scaling of the world. Existence in a more controllable format? No idea, but it seemed an interesting direction to follow.

theinfill.wordpress.com and my postings here are my ‘book’. More of a fantasy story than a historical reflection, full of warmth and love and not a little bit of sweat and swearing – a reflection of life, perhaps.

OMG what a project. I am in awe of your talent and skills. It is the best medieval project I have ever seen. Attention to detail is second to none. Fabulous I love it.

Good morning Carol
No apology needed at all - it's fascinating watching it happen - the For Sale album seems to have theinfill attached to it and I've not even accidentally entered there, so what's that about. The Album we got mixed in had, at that time theinfill as the name and now has Carol. None of this matters directly but might mean that you or any of us don't know where are images have run off to sometimes. All v interesting as there must be some coding entanglement or summat that happens when 2 or more of us are posting at or close to the same time perhaps(?) Who knows
I was just worried that you might have 'lost' sight of your lovely panelling images when they seemed to get swallowed by a different photo gallery - a very interesting and perplexing happening altogether. Did it take you long to untangle?
All the best

Hi there, got your message and very many apologies. Not sure how it happened, but managed to do it to someone else as well. Was able to put it right the first time but it would not let me delete from your album. I think Julie has sorted it out now.

Love your work, it's very inspiring.

Thanks! I like making things for my dolls house, from kits or from bits and bobs I have hoarded away, and from your photos I can clearly see that you are a builder and maker too!! :) shame full size DIY isn't so much fun....

If you look at my profile and go into my photos, the first album on there has pictures of my house, although I put them on a while back now. There are other albums of photos too of developments to different rooms along the way!

Hello there, on the borders with Scotland is good. I stay in Scotland and there are not many of us dolls house lovers up here. Love your stuff. I am interested in steam punk just now, it's fascinating.

Hi there. Happy new year to you too. I will be happy to help in any way I can, whenever you are ready, but looking at your work I can't imagine you would want more than discussion of tactics from me?? :-)

You do have to use the finest natural fabrics you can get, and I found a touch of glue on raw edges saves some turnings. I traced a 1:12 patern, surrounded it with an edge to make square (or rectangle) folded that in 4 and then copied the pattern into one quarter. After that the fun begins!! Hope that makes some sense. You can friend me and we can work on it if you want to.

Your work is terrific - hugely impressive. Well I just made a botch job of dressing a 1:24 man, and you have reminded me that I have a couple of Nicky Bott grumpy old men hidden away somewhere, still to be dressed. Both 1:24 though, and do I find that a bit tricky!!
