You've got mail!

I recently received two wonderful books on dollhouses re: Amazon. "Magnificent Miniatures" by Kevin Mulvany and Susie Rogers is exactly as it says "magnificent". I read the whole book in one evening as I couldn't put it down. The houses are incredible, a real feast for the eyes!

"Queen Mary's Dollhouse" by Lucinda Lambton is stunning. Thousands upon thousands of beautifully crafted tiny miniatures fill every square inch, and are in every drawer and cupboard in the this absolutely huge and divine palace. There are tiny bottles of wine corked with real vintage wines in them ( I heard they had to let the champagne go flat as the bubbles were to big for the bottles). Dishes,silverware, bed linens and other small items to numerous to mention, and the furniture is simply amazing!

I am waiting on one more book from Amazon called " Le Grande Livre de la Maison Miniature" by Lea Frisoni a dollhouse all decorated in the french style. It written all in french but the pictures are incredible. I can't wait until it arrives!
