A place to share ideas and thoughts about miniatures, scale models, architecture and display my collections of Tynietoy, Strombecker, Tootsietoy, Halls, Kage, Kilgore &; Arcade cast iron, and a few other antique miniature finds and projects.
I hope everyone has a great Easter. My daughter and I had made these mini Easter baskets at miniature club several Easters ago! The chocolate bunny and eggs were polymer clay. I remember the best part was eating the chocolate and saving the foil!
While doing some research on another project, I came across this time lapse video of Colleen Moore's Dollhouse being re-constructed after a restoration project. The house resides at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. I have not seen the house in person yet, but it is on my bucket list. I do have a few books about it in my collection.
This is booklet was published in 1935
This hard cover book is from the late 70's - early 1980's and features colored pictures and blue prints of the house
This book was published in 1997 and has great photos of each room, some details of some of the furniture and also a section on Colleen Moore.
