Dolls' Houses Past & Present

About Me

Busy grandma who enjoys dancing to keep fit, genealogy, miniatures, needlecrafts and reading. Love being retired from the NHS.

Although I have limited space I do have several vintage 16th scale houses that I have restored and furnished with vintage furniture.  I also have a 24th "Tudor" house which lives in the bookshelves, and one day by hook or crook, I shall own a 12th scale.

Thanks, Judy. And where do you put your dollshouses?! I may have to resort to roomboxes next!
BTW, when I'm not into my dollshouses, I'm into genealogy!

Happy New Year and thanks for your v kind offer ? that would be great. But are you thinking of doing it in the immediate future? I have an idea of how I will be using him in the v near future but have got myself tied up with trying out different air drying clays at the moment. I?m trying to learn how to use them to make doll heads, would you believe.
So far, when dressing something very small I?ve cheated and used glove leather wherever possible as it moulds well and doesn?t fray. It?s just finding the scissors or knife that?s sharp enough that?s the bother I find.

I have no idea of how to go about dressing a 1:24 figure. I don't think I'd manage to press all the bits and seams etc without totally steaming my fingernails off. Perhaps it's a job for under the mattress? I'm much to fingers and thumbs to try it. How do you go about it? I've a Nicky Bott little 1:24 boy which is waiting assemblage but I've no idea how I'm going to tackle his clobber.

Thanks Judy for your lovely comment. Both dolls were kits: the fella's from Nicky Bott and the woman from I think it was from 'dct miniature fashions'. The clothing is down to me and my sticky fingers.
