The house with no name
I bought this dollhouse at an antiques store over Labor Day weekend. My intention was to furnish it and give it to a school raffle, as I do every year. Once I got it home, however, I realized it's much too big for the raffle. -- three floors, 9 rooms, and more than 30" in all dimensions.
So, darn, I might have to keep it. I'll pick up a smaller one in the next month and that's what will go to the raffle.
But, although I love to look at them, I've never wanted a typical dollhouse with living room, bedroom, and so on. I'm trying to think of something else to turn this into. I already have a mortuary and a museum. Plus a campaign headquarters roombox, but I'll keep that off the blog, lest we get distracted by politics!
Bordellos are way too common among dollhouse owners, and so are flower shops, pawn shops, beauty parlors, hat shops, and Christmas shops.
