Are You Dreaming of a Dolls House for Christmas?

Have you made a wish list for Christmas? Does it have 'dolls house' at the top? You have probably been dreaming about getting a new dolls house for ages. Reading miniatures books and magazines, going to dolls house shows, checking out other people's minis. In your mind, you will have built and decorated every inch inside and out. Will there be a dolls house under your Christmas tree?
   Choosing the perfect dolls house is not easy. I'm sure you will want one bigger than this tiny 1:160 scale one! But you do need to consider how much space you have in your real house to display a dolls house. Then there are the various scale measurements that determine a dolls house dimensions.
   Another thing to think about is whether you want to buy a ready built, decorated dolls house; a kitset one that you can put together and decorate; or if you will build a house completely from scratch. Will it be built of plywood, MDF or lightweight foam core?
  What style will your dream dolls house be? Tudor, Victorian, Georgian, Edwardian, Art Deco, or modern?
   Oh, it's fun, isn't it, planning your next miniature project! 
   I wish you all  a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful year of mini-making in 2012. See you next year!
