Giveaway Competition for Members

This issue, in celebration of our 5th anniversary, we have two competition prizes.

One is this book, Dolls' Houses from the V&A Museum of Childhood, very kindly offered by Zoe:

The other prize is offered by Jane. The winner of this prize can choose two of Jane's antique wallpapers, and will receive one metre of each of those two designs. Here are four of the wallpapers; the winner can choose from the papers shown in the photo album Turn of the Century Wallpapers.


Please indicate which prize you want to enter for (the book or the wallpapers). A member can enter for both, but can only win one of them. Once I have drawn one prize, I will remove that winner's name from the draw for the other prize. 

To enter the competition and have a chance to win one of these prizes, just look through the pages of this issue of the magazine, and find which article each of these images appears in. Each one is a small part or detail from a photo in one of the articles. When you have found all of them, send me the page number or the name of the article for each one (eg Photo A is on page ..., or Photo B is in the article ....).


                           A                                               B


                            C                                                D  


                               E                                               F 


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

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

Entry is open to all members, new and old, whether you've won before or not!

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

Entries must be received by the closing date of Sunday 27th July 2014.

Good luck!


Submission Guidelines

We're always happy to receive submissions at any time for our quarterly ezine (currently published in March, June, September and December 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 about 500kb, if possible. Most photo editing software has an option to resize photos, but I can do this if you're not sure how to. I prefer to receive photos at higher resolution and larger size, than too small - it is easier to reduce the size than enlarge it, and it enables me to zoom in to details. Please send your photos 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.
