Playing house

Posted on Thu, 9 Oct 2008 by midcenturyjo

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.

I must give a big shout out to ninaribena of the fab blog Canberra’s Got Style for sending us the links to these cute houses. Pop on over to her blog for the original post and lots more great finds.

Wow! I forgot for a second that these were doll house images. They look so life like.

she also has a Kaleidoscope House!!!!! and her range of miniatures is astounding. she’s a funny lady too (we’ve been reading each other’s blog for a while) and i love her in and out system which allows her to be “green”. she also sells miniatures on the Australian eBay!!!!

she just completed a series of her houses… VERY educational!! 🙂
