Love is in the Air

How time flies!, 4 months have past since I posted my last article. I would like to thank you all who sent warm message and wishes in context to earthquake thing.

Through this article, I introduce my new dollhouse titled, "Love is in the Air". It is a corner box, 8(wide) x 8(depth) x 10(height) inches.

I found this real leather single sofa at Chicago show in 2010; the moment I saw this sofa, I fell in love with it!

I also found ballet type shoes at Chicago show.  Desk lamp was prepared by me from scratch using plastic model parts.

Photograph of couple on the wall is one of my favorite and conveys message of the dollhouse. I found this photograph while browsing through an antique picture book, right after that I decided to frame it and hang on the wall of my dollhouse.

My interest in sea shells started at the time when I used to work in one of Tokyo department store where I was in-charge for selling sea shells. I have become a collector of sea shells since then. These tiny sea shells used in the dollhouse are real one.

2 white vases used in dollhouse are from "Avon Miniatures, England". I have tried to contact with them without success. If anyone has information about them, please let me know if they are still doing business.
A circular cone type of vase is made by British artist, "Carol Mann"; her miniature pottery work is amazing.

80% of books displayed on the shelf are prepared by me and remaining purchased during dollhouse shows. Few of the books can be opened and read. Thick book (aqua blue) in second shelf from bottom is a picture book of sea shells which I collected during London Dollshouse Festival last year.

    Not sure how you have been contacting Avon Miniatures and I appreciate that the UK is a very long way away and I'm probably stating the obvious (!!), but have tried ringing them too? Their no. is 44 1837 53237 or writing to them at: Avon Miniatures, 20 Brandize Park, Okehampton, Devon, England, EX20 1EQ. As far as I know they are still in business.
