Old Fashioned Toy
Illustration Friday - Toy
There is something very appealing about dolls houses, as a child I spent hours arranging and re-arranging the furniture for my little doll family. I'm not sure that i pods and computor games can give the same satisfaction?
By far the most amazing dolls house and one I'd like to see, is the dolls house built for Queen Mary the wife of George V in the 1920's. Top artists and craftsmen used their skills to build tiny furniture and perfect working items, including plumbing and lighting. The dolls house is on show at Windsor Castle, but you can have a virtual look round here , if you have time to spare!
