I haven't had much time of late for minis, my blog, other blogs. My father passed away on Friday, so I've been dealing with the before, during and after of what that entails.
I thought it would be appropriate to post some pictures of my first dollhouse that my father and mother gave me in the late 70's. I believe I was in 5th or 6th grade and had been begging for one for years. It was electrified and at the time our local toy store had a lot of miniatures that I filled it with. I also remember making a trip to a miniature show in San Francisco and buying some small accessories. I loved it!
When I was in high school the dollhouse was just brought out at Christmastime to be place under the tree complete with snow and a small pond. Then it went into my Dad's attic until about 5 years ago. My dad was cleaning out his storage and at the time I had one year old twins and was planning a long distance move so I sold it. Of course, now I regret it. I wish I'd taken pictures of the inside (and better pictures of the outside!)
I'm off to Phoenix, Arizona for my Father's burial. I'll have a little free time so I'm hoping to visit the Thorne Rooms that are at the Phoenix Art Museum. I'll be back next week ready to get back to miniatures.
