I began writing this blog as a way to record my progress renovating an old Dolls House Emporium Classical dolls house which I built from a kit in the 1980's. It has now evolved into a blog about my ever increasing collection of dolls houses and the items I buy and make to put in them.

Hope you enjoy it.

More Collectables

Sorry been ages since my last post but have been busy searching for things for my new business Dainty Dishes.  On my treasure hunting expeditions I have found a few items for my own personal collections though.  First are these lovely selection of picture brooches, the middle one is Limoges and I just couldn't resist the budgies as I used to have them as pets as a child.

Next are some Marie Antoinette items.  Found two matching Ironstone side plates named Antoinette while looking for plates to make cake stands for Dainty Dishes.  The back stamp indicates that they were made in the 1950s.  The picture was an ebay purchase and it has a slight raised effect which gives it an enamelled look, no idea how old it is but I love it.
