Wow - that is extraordinarily beautiful, thoughtful and well-crafted. What a keepsake! I'm sure it will give your daughter many hours of happiness.


I can see what kept you so busy these last few months! Brava!

I'm really glad you're back blogging - I've missed reading you! This doll's house is absolutely gorgeous - what a fantastic gift for your daughter - and you made it all yourselves, making it even more special.


What fun! It is addicting, isn't it?
Our house is packed in storage until we move but I still will spy the odd little thing and think how it will work in the house. I am coveting the Biedermeier table.


What an amazing dollhouse. You are both very talented. It makes me think of the Beatrix Potter story, Two Bad Mice.


It's all so amazing and delightful! I love the very Victorianess of it all, from the wallpaper to Victoria's picture. What a wonderful present! (I can see how making and adding more little details can be very addictive indeed!)


WOW!! This is so wonderful. What a great job!


You have killed me, you have. I grew up with a miniaturist and have a haphazard collection of exquisite things from years of being dragged to miniature shows, and in a closet somewhere furniture kits and wallpapers and tiny, tiny textiles.

You've given me SUCH a pang of desire to buy a kit and start building.

Wonderful, wonderful job and wonderful gift for your daughter.


This is wonderful. My daughter, Kate and I are planning to build and decorate a doll house and now you have given me all these great links. Thanks.

  • "'Then I am the first,' cried Pullings with infinite satisfaction. 'Let me wish you and Mrs. Aubrey all the joy in the world.' He grasped Jack's limp, wondering hand, wrung it numb, and showed the printed page, reading aloud, '"At Ashgrove Cottage, Chilton Admiral, in Hants, the lady of Captain Aubrey, of the Boadicea, of a son and heir,"' following the words with his finger.

    'Give it here,' said Jack. He grasped the magazine, sloped the page to the light and pored over it intently.

    '"At Ashgrove Cottage, Chilton Admiral, in Hants, the lady of Captain Aubrey, of the Boadicea, of a son."

    'Well, I'll be damned. God bless me. Lord, Lord … upon my word and honour … I'll be damned to Hell and back again … strike me down. Killick, Killick, rouse out a bottle of champagne -- pass the word for the Doctor -- here, Killick, there's for you -- God love us all -- ha, ha, ha.'

    Killick took the handful of money, put it slowly into his pocket with a look of extreme suspicion and walked out of the cabin, his lips pursed in disapproval. Jack leapt from his seat, took several turns fore and aft, chuckling from time to time, his mind filled with mingled love, happiness, fulfilment, and a most piercing nostalgia."
