Dolls' Houses Past & Present

A website and ezine about dolls' houses: antique, vintage and modern. Plus furniture and accessories.

The Handmaid's House

A hand made house that I acquired from e-bay in November 2013. It has 11 rooms, three hallways, a mud room and an airing cupboard. It really is my dream dolls house. I have based the interior of the house on the book/film 'The Handmaid's Tale' by Margaret Attwood - which describes the area where the book takes place as being like a model town and having the air of being asleep. It's not meant to be a big feminist political statement or high art, it has more to do with my love of American Colonial Style interiors... I'm currently working on the furnishings and fabrics.
