Dolls' Houses Past & Present

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

Giveaway Competition for DHPP Members

With this issue, we celebrate 3 years of the Dolls Houses Past and Present magazine, and also reaching 500 members! (Well, very nearly!)  So we have TWO giveaways this time - one a beaded lamp made and donated by Joan (see her article on page 12), and the other a 1960s lamp (please note: the electrics have not been checked on the 1960s lamp).



For a chance to win, answer the following questions:


  1. What colour is the Fairy Princess living room furniture?
  2. What is the Handicrafts dolls house paper Number 4?
  3. When and why was the Bleuette doll created?
  4. Where does Kim Selwood live?
  5. What did the Hückel family make before they made dolls?


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

For your chance to win one of the prizes, 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 .)  

Please say whether you want to enter for the beaded lamp or for the 1960s lamp.

Please do enter - last time, some people thought that they shouldn't enter because they had already won once, and in the end no one entered!

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


Entries must be received by the closing date of  Sunday 15th April 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.
