Such a Doll....

Did anyone else have a doll house when growing up? I had a fantastic wooden doll house filled with all sorts of wonderful nick knacks. I spent countless hours decorating the windows with left over fabric scraps from my mother's sewing kit. I suppose even as a young girl I enjoyed interior design, LOL. However, I couldn't have imagined having something as so elegant as a doll house like these.

Look at the amazing doll houses I came across. Absolutely stunning! I must admit, my dolls never lived in such luxury. Even though I'm a grown woman...I want a doll house like those pictured below!!! Aren't they something else. Barbie's Dream House has nothing on this French Chateau.

What would be a doll house without a working chandelier and other light fixtures?

And every doll house must have fine art dressing the walls.

A place to rest your head at night.

A lovely secretary to write letters to your family and friends. Yes, even our dolls must display social etiquette's by writing thank you cards.

A wonderful area to sit and read a book or entertain afternoon tea.

A porcelain tea set will come in handy for such occasions.

A beautiful dining set to host dinner parties.

And doll life wouldn't be complete without a maid and cook.

Oh to be such a doll. Life would be splendid. If one day I have a little girl I'm going to buy her one of these doll houses. Then mommy can play too, LOL.
Hope everyone is off to a fabulous week. Wishing you all a very happy and pleasant afternoon.

I never had one, but one of my good friend's mothers made them! She'd create these elaborate rooms and houses, they were so beautiful, I was always so jealous!

Wow, those are pretty amazing. I always wanted a huge, ornate dollhouse when I was younger just to decorate, ha! I kind of want to live in one of those now!

WOW. I would have died over those as a little girl. I'm kinda dying over them now. HA!
