Dolls' Houses Past & Present

About Me

At this point in my life I am an artist (oil and watercolor). 

Last fall a few friends and I decided to get together to work on dollhouse crafts. I decided to finish the dollhouse my husband and I had started/made for our daughters. He died a few years ago and though the dollhouse was in playable condition we had never finished the brick work on the chimney or the roof shingles.  We had designed and built this house ourselves and I had made the furniture. In the process of looking for more supplies for this endeavour I discovered a world of other dollhouses.  I have always loved old toys and never really knew much about older dollhouses.  I started collecting furniture for a Lundby house and made some as well.  From there I became  facinated with Bliss and other houses. 

When I was about 8 I had spent some time with my sister making dollhouse furniture out of balsa wood and arranging it in a cigar box. I guess I will never grow out of this.
