Dolls' Houses Past & Present

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

Giveaway Competition for Members

Valerie has kindly donated one of her cribs, complete with an Ari baby, for this month's give-away.



If you would like a chance to adopt this baby - who Valerie assures me will come dressed ;-) - just send the answers to these questions to us through the Contact Us page, or direct to me (see below).


For a chance to win, answer the following questions:

1. Which article does the cover photo come from?

2. Which is your favourite dolls house or miniature in Liza's book?*

3. What is the name of the little girl who received a dolls house for Christmas in 1930?

4. What furniture did Jazz furnish her dolls house with?


* An open question - you can answer based on the review, the book itself, of if you don't have a favourite / don't like any,  that can be your answer!


This competition is only open to registered members of this website, Dolls Houses Past and Present.

 For your chance to win this prize, please send your answers via the website "Contact Us " Section or by email to Rebecca at:

greenreb41 at hotmail dot com

(remove spaces and replace at with @ and dot with .)  


All correct entries will be entered into the draw and a winner will be picked at random.


Entries must be received by the closing date of  Saturday 14th January 2012.

Good luck!


Submission Guidelines

We're always happy to receive submissions at any time for our quarterly ezine (currently published around the end of February, May, August and November each year).


Ideally, your submission will be in Word format, emailed to Rebecca at greenreb41 at hotmail dot com as an attachment. If you do not have access to Word we're also happy to receive your article in the body of your email.


If your submission includes photos the placement of the photos should be indicated within the submission like this:

This is an article about dolls houses or miniatures and here is a lovely photo to illustrate my point:

<Photo 1: Name of your photo>

Caption, if you're using one.

And then the article continues like this...

Photos should be no bigger than 500kb, if possible (most photo editing software has an option to compress photos), and sent as attachments, not embedded in your submission. Please ensure the names of your photos match the names you have provided in the body of your submission.
