My Victorian Dollhouse Home Tour

Today I thought I would share my Victorian dollhouse.

This is the only large size dollhouse that I own.

Close to twenty years old, the house will most likely need a decorative overhaul eventually because much of it was done before I really knew about creating miniatures with archival techniques and materials in order to stand the test of time.

Enjoy the house tour!
