Wow, I just releasized that I haven't been blogging. ;)
I was hoping to have some exciting news to report last week, but alas, it is on hold for the moment-
New followers to welcome, they are; evelien and you can find her blog here and Reisl Today, which I thought there was a blog... but, I'm not finding it listed... Reisel, if you're around, leave me a comment with your blog site and I'll put it in my next post. :) Thanks for following my blog.
I thought I would share with you, my dear readers, my favorite dollhouse books. :)
This book showcases 35 dollhouses from the 1600's on to present day.
Focuses on the interiors, primarily furniture building.
A unique mix of design styles; from Egyptian, Shaker, Bauhaus to Victorian Gothic
Everything having to do with textiles, my favorite subjects. :)
All Victorian, all the time. ;) I love the richness of this time period, the pattern on pattern, the ornateness and all of the "stuff" that Victorians loved to hang on to.
This has a lot of specific projects for dollhouses in different time periods.
I used to just pour over these books and dream. :)
Now, I find I am getting more and more interested with contemporary and modern traditional designs as opposed to period designs, though, I still love them! :)
Books are such precious things, they are like old friends, so good to have around to enjoy.
After reading up on other people's blogs, I'm seeing that, there are a bunch of new gorgeous books are out there.
Must ask for a gift certificate to a book store for Christmas. ;)
