helping me with this blog. I have just finished my 6th month as a blogger and what a time it has been!
(why does it look like that! It doesn't in the editing!!!)
May starts my 7th month. I have collected these dollhouses for over 30 years (not even counting my childhood which was toyfull.) Check out that cowboy swingset! Yee haw!
Several thing have occurred. I think there must be an explosion of interest and popularity in miniatures at this time. What do you think? The number of miniture blogs is increasing as the number of products available is too. I was one of the people interviewed for the New York Times article though I collect more than just modern design. Amazed me. This blogging is potent stuff.
So at the magic number of 200 I want to do a "give back" in the grand blogger tradition. What is it? I DON"T KNOW! I hope that 200th person doesn't sign in till I figure it out. What have you seen people do that you like the best? ( I still haven't sent everything out from my last give away, Anthoula)
I also got my first reference book: Antique & Collectibles: Dollhouses and their furnishings by Dian Zillner and Patty Cooper. (My Stirn parlor furniture is really by the Starr Co.) So I can do a better job.
I have made GREAT friends, Oese, Rebecca, Call Small, Dana, Amy, Pinchofpepper, Shale, Nicola, Pubdoll etc.
It seems funny to call them by their blog names sometimes.
BUT I want to change a few things... Like my template and I'm afraid to mess with it or it might disappear. I plan to widen my scope. Talk about design in general, especially my current 1:1 project, "The Trellis Room" (more later) and perhaps life in general. So we shall see what the next 6 months brings and I will still be giving a tour of my collection (2 down 18 to go).
May is the Hacienda House so...
Y'all come back now... ya hear? Cheers CM
