Some people never grow up but some people do something a lot more special and never lose the wonder of a child. That’s how I like to think about The Shopping Sherpa. She has collected the most amazing collection of vintage and contemporary doll’s houses and furniture. More than that she has recreated interiors that most of us would love to live in. (OK OK either we would have to be only a few centimetres tall or the houses would have to grow to life size.) The collection is even part of an exhibition at The Canberra Museum and Gallery that started on October 7 and runs till the end of January. I know that if I lived in that part of Australia I’d be there over and over. Visit The Shopping Sherpa’s blog and Flickr to view more of the collection.
Entries in doll's house (2)
Iconic Australian company Dinosaur Designs is known for its sensuous resin jewellery and home wares. While drooling over their latest collection I stumbled upon this and smiled. Oh I wish I had this doll's house as a child. The unique pad was auctioned to raise money for the Leukemia Foundation of NSW in 2001 and was donated by the purchaser to the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney.
P.S. If you don't know their work check out their site especially their jewellery...ooh and their home wares, all of it ... yum.
