Dolls in droves

Dolls in droves

Today, Daisy and I went out in search for props for our upcoming new product shoot, and stumbled across an Aladdin's Cave.  In a suburb not so far from where I grew up, a curious little Dolls Hospital has sat for many decades. It's so tiny and the lettering on the facade so faded, one could assume it's closed down. But the scattering of vintage dolls prams and dolls houses in the front window has often caught my attention, though still, I've never been inside. Until today.

It's child's play - Dolls house dreaming

When I was a little girl, I had this poster on my wall. It was a beautifully detailed illustration of a secret mouse house, intricately carved into the inside of a big tree trunk, complete with tiny mice characters, teeny tiny bedrooms, living spaces and furniture. I loved it so much and suspect it was big in the 80's! Does anyone else know the image? I spent hours of my youth dreaming of transporting myself into that scene so I could explore every nook and cranny in that amazing home. Now I learn it is a famous illustration for Brambly...
