Welcome to the final issue of the magazine for 2010. This issue has articles covering nearly 200 years of dolls houses and miniatures, from Britain, Germany, the USA and Australia. Thanks to the contributors, who have shared their enthusiasm and experiences. I hope everyone will find something to enjoy. If your passion hasn't appeared in this magazine yet, please think about writing about it yourself! We welcome contributions, short and long, at any time. Please contact us if you'd like to discuss ideas for articles on topics such as
- your collection
- a dolls house or shop etc that's unusual or interesting
- a particular make of dolls houses, dolls house furniture or dolls that you can tell us about
- a restoration project
- how to make minis
- a travel or museum report on a great place to visit
If you've never written before, but you have something you'd like to share, just give it a go. We're dolls house collectors, not professional writers! I'm happy to help you shape your piece if you'd like some assistance.
This issue also includes a give-away competition again.
Happy reading, and stay safe over the holiday period!
