Dolls' Houses

I love dolls' houses. Aren't they beautiful? All my life I have been fascinated by them. I have video of me at about two getting furniture for my first ever dolls' house. I wasn't a messy sort of child, I was very very very neat. I laid everything out perfectly, and you can see me adjusting the position of the pillows very very slightly, just so it was perfect. Nothing much has changed! Haha, I still tidy it up sometimes. :P

I'm trying to find a way of incorporating them into my prep for my art gcse mock as I have the idea of making a little room, about the size of a large shoebox, with everything in it, but miniature and made by me :) So for prep I've been taking some pictures of my dolls' house and I popped along to the dolls' house shop near me and took some photos.

This is what I wore on my way. I have no idea what compelled me to take this photo, I guess the sun came out and I felt inspired :P It's quite an un-me-ish outfit, but I thought it worked and its always great to try something new :) This maxi dress is from New Look, AAAND in the sale :D £14 from £30, I think. I love a good bargain, I do! And the bag is from my uncle, and the worst thing is I can't remember where its from! I know its from some of his foreign travels, but I can't for the live of me remember where! :( It's one of those things that I put in my wardrobe and retrieved recently and thought, yeah, I like this! So this is its first appearance with me :)
