dollhouse challenge!






My grandfather built beautiful dollhouses, and I was the lucky recipient of 3 of them in his lifetime. He donated most to his church, and was passionate about his hobby…only stopping when he could no longer handle such tiny parts with care. I have always loved miniatures, and I decorated my dollhouses continously, and am convinced it played a big role in my interior design career! Recently, Emily Henderson (of HGTV fame) launched the "I'm a Giant" challenge, encouraging us to build or buy a dollhouse, decorate it, and share the fun! Well Emily…I accept, with glee! I will be repairing and renovating the custom dollhouse above (that's how it looked when I was 12)…I can't wait to share my journey. It will be sweet & sentimental for me, as well as fun! Are any of you taking the challenge?!



  1. How wonderful! I can’t wait to see all your progress on this Susan! I fell in love with miniatures too and even remember one of my favourite shops on a childhood trip to Washington that only sold dollhouse parts. I wanted to stay all day and will never forget it. I think I was 11? And anytime (not often) when I pass a miniature shop in Paris I can’t help but stop and stare.

  2. I can’t wait to see what you do with that amazing, heirloom dollhouse. I’m joining the challenge too x
