Dolls' Houses Past & Present

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

Competition for DHPP members

The giveaway in this issue has been generously made and donated by Joan Joyce. Most of you will be familiar with the vintage-style dolls house food which Joan makes (and which she gave instructions for in Issue 6, August 2010). Here she has made some delicious cakes and puddings, so that the lucky winner can stock their own pastry shop or supply a dolls house tea party. The cakes are in 1/12th scale, but some may be suitable in 1/16th scale also.




 For a chance to win, answer the following questions:

1. Which puppet is Celia Thomas' favourite?

2. When was the firm of Modella sold?

3. Where did Peter Tucker live as a child?

4. What did Wendy Lawday put in the attic window of her dolls house?

5. Who visited the Lines / Triang stand in 1939?


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:

Good luck!

Submission Guidelines

We're always happy to receive submissions 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 us 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.
