The magic of a dolls' house

11 March 2013

Imagination should never be in short supply when you’re a dolls’ house maker.

And a little creativity should never go amiss either!

That’s why we were pleased to receive a medium-sized envelope from Susan Emptage, of Dorset, who has regaled staff at Dolls House HQ with her “tales of a dolls’ house”.

One, Thrupenny-Bit and the Dolls’ House, may have more than en element of truth in it, explaining the story behind a cuddly Westie called Thrupenny-Bit who made friends with all the characters from the house he slept near.

The second, A Magical Dolls House, tells tall tales of what happens to the items inside when nobody’s looking!

We all enjoy creating scenarios to explain why certain items are in our dolls’ house rooms and what’s going on at the time.

Susan (Suan) sent us illustrations to go with her two stories!

She says: “I have a Victorian dolls’ house, downstairs in our music room, where there is a piano and old-fashioned dolls.

“I have a wooden dolls house that I have animals in, and one that I got from the charity shop, which someone made.

“I use that as a 30s dolls’ house and there is a dance room.

“I love reading and looking at the Dolls House Emporium catalogues, thank you so much!”
