Breaking News !

Two great things to report this week.  The first is that I have been selected to receive the Rosetta Stone Award!  It is an honor and humbling to be held in such high esteem by my colleagues.  Thank you.

The Rosetta Stone

The Rosetta Stone award was created by a committee on My Realitty's blog. CM explained the creation of the award in this way.... "As we all know dollhouses were originally the hobby of the rich or tools to teach children how to keep house. Today people all over the world are interested in them. Note the number of bloggers and how dollhouse blogs are a world unto themselves. Though these houses may have started as toys and may have led a perilous life, once they are in the safe harbor of the collector they have a story to tell. This award is to acknowledge the sleuthing it takes to discover that story."

Previous winners have been collectors of great knowledge and generosity, and authors of some of my very favorite blogs. Check out their latest posts..... Rebecca's Collections ... from Australia, diePuppenstubensammlerin ...from Germany, A Home for Dolly ...from Ohio, USA, and Florine at My-vintage-dollhouses ... from Arizona and most recently Susan's Mini Homes: Dollhouses and More

The Second big piece of news is that I surpassed 200 followers on my blog.

I posted my first blog back in February of 2010.  I have learned so much and made so many friends since then.  I appreciate your support and look forward to many more years and many more friends to come!  Thank you Susan.  This made my day.
