Dolls' Houses Past & Present

About Me

My older sister started me into miniatures many years ago.  I started building my own house from scratch (literally), but alas with two young ones on the go, it was put on the back burner until 2 years ago when I resurrected the bare bones from the basement, and I've been plugging on since.  Last year I "inherited" two large homes - one is a Lines DH15 (aka "the big one") and the other is a Georgian home which apparently was on display at the Philadelphia Exhibition in 1876 (I have yet to verify this).  After I finish my doll house, I will be starting on one of the older homes......

Hi Mary, I forgot you also got that enormous Lines house! I took home the Mystery house and have started removing the dark varnish covering the floors and finding that they are really wonderful underneath, so I am taking my time to do it slowly. Do you get Antique Doll Collector Magazine? I have an article about a really nice house in the upcoming issue and will post pictures of it on my website afterwards. I ahve a feeling your Philadelphia house is not as old as they thought and probably dates to the 1920's, but it would be interesting to try to find out - it's a beauty!!! Lucky you - I was so pleased when you got it and I remember we all clapped under the tent for you! Beautiful day...
