Individuals who enjoy building and collecting dollhouses or miniatures, adding flare opens up a whole new library of ideas. And it makes perfect sense too. If you are going to put as much pride in a large-scale version of your home, ,No one ever claimed dollhouses had to fit a specific mold.
If you want to get into more detail, a kit would be a better choice for you. These kits can help you make a dollhouse or miniature resemble your own home down to the packages under the tree. For example, if you are looking into holiday decorations, you can buy Christmas trees with tiny lights, stockings that let you write family names on them and miniature packages with personalized name tags. In fact, decorating dollhouses for various holidays has become so popular that avid collectors even enjoy re-creating their own village or town. One should never store a delicate miniature in damp climate. Dampness, such as in a basement, can deteriorate the materials used to make a dollhouse. It can also lead to mold development that can be difficult to remove or eliminate from fabrics or carpeting. You should also be weary of storing a dollhouse in the attic because moths or other household varmints could do damage to the house itself or its accessories.
The conditions within the factories that many of these dolls were created in, adds to my amazement. Many of these tiny dolls have lasted in excess of 100 years , they have been handled, and played with, loved and often abandoned, only to turn up years later in an attic somewhere. The furnishings of this same era were often handmade, often primitive, and much did not stand the test of time as well as the little dolls did. To find, own and enjoy these pieces today is a delight. Doll clothes can be either purchased or made by hand. When making doll clothes, remember that scrap fabrics from a variety of sources work extremely well. At the scale of a dollhouse doll, elaborate detailing can be implied more than created outright. A simple scrap of black velvet, for example, can be formed and decorated with a gold pen to create the illusion of a ball gown.
