My dad bought this dollhouse in the US as a model kit and my late grandfather did the electrical wiring, made lamps and built furniture for it. However, when I received it for Christmas as a little girl, much to my mother’s regret, I never quite took very much. I liked playing with my teddy bear, my toy cars, crane and digger and Playmobil. Throughout the years, she has updated it lovingly with a keen eye on details, using materials from our former house, only carefully adding new details. When she asked me for a painting for the dollhouse, I happily obliged and chose a single Zentangle pattern for the tiny canvas (square of 2.7 inches).
I love all these details that my mum put into the dollhouse. She put the fabrics on the sun umbrella and made all the curtains.
The upstairs gallery features a fireplace with books and a globe, a rocking chair and the new drawing.
