Christmas in Villa Vanilla

A bit too late...but I wish you all a merry Xmas and a happy and healthy NewYear!
This is an old picture from the livingroom in Villa Vanilla : my Honeychurch dollhouse.

My father Tom built the house in 1987 for me from a kit .

For the June issue of the Dutch dollhouse and miniatures magazine: Poppenhuizen en Miniaturen, I was interviewed by Dienke Cazemier about La Belle Brigante. I was a little nervous, like before a job-interview...but there was no need as Dienke wrote a very nice article and made lovely pictures!

Porcelain dolls by Sylvia Mobley, dressed and wigged by me.
At the moment I make very little progress on the dolls, but I wanted to show you that I have been doing something...unfortunately not enough to attend shows at the moment.

Getting started on new dolls .

Today I am assembling some beautiful doll-kits by
Sylvia Mobley. I think these two look charming together. Maybe I will dress them as a couple, a bride and groom perhaps. A Spring wedding would be lovely...

A new tiny doll and welcome new followers.

A very warm welcome to new followers:
Christine F.
Thank you all for becoming a follower!

For Etsy I  made this tiny doll and hat.
I put together a little scene
with a 1:12 size chair and a vintage piece of knitwork.
The sheperdess hat was made from old hatstraw
and the little bride is dressed in lovely old lace.
I love the soft colors and the old materials.
