Hello my name is Cathy. I just came across your Orchid on ebay. I then went to your blog page. I love what you did with the house. It makes me want to move right in. If it doesnt sell this week and you run it again next week I will try to buy it. I have just spent a small fortune this week on stuff for a Haunted Dollhouse I am working on to surprise my 9 year old grandson.He comes and spends every other weekend with me. When he was here this past weekend I bidded on 2 houses on ebay but didnt win either one.He was so disappointed. I had an arthur I had bought off ebay that was tore up pretty bad so I though that would make a good haunted house. Anyway I have been hard at work since Monday hoping to having it almost ready by the time he returns next Saturday. I would love to make your house into a coffee shop.
I have always wanted a dollhouse. When the “Borrowers ” books first came out I read them a long time ago. I have a son 23 now and I think he was around 10 when they first came out. Anyway like I said I have always wanted a dollhouse. I finally got my first one this past Jan. at 48 yrs old…LOL,and that started an obession. I now have 14 houses counting one my husband and I are building. I live in South Carolina. On Labor Day weekend my husband and I drove to Savannah Georgia to pick up a Pierce that I bought off of ebay. It had been bought from an estate sale and the people who sold it knew nothing about dollhouses. I got it for $56.00. It had a lot of pieces falling off of it and has never been painted but I am working on it. worst part someone did a sloppy job with a glue gun. Anyway I have tried several colors on it and havent found one I like. I saw the pictures of the cream/brown one on your site and now I think I will try that.
Well I just wanted to tell you how much I like your house and that I have really enjoyed your site. I have bookmarked it so I can keep up with whatever comes next. Thanks a lot,and nice meeting you…Cathy
My hubby and I just finished making our second dollhouse. We had been looking for a new hobby that both of us could share. Last weekend, he offered to help me with painting! I discovered an enchanting secret about my beloved of seven years now: he is an artist at heart!
This mid-19th century dollhouse is one of the finest in the Mary Merritt Doll Museum‘s collection. It is currently part of the Noel Barrett Vintage Toys auction on Ebay Live. The exterior façade is rich in architectural details with outstanding hand-carved and hand-painted columns, balustrades and quoins painted in a faux-marble effect.
