Just like in our "big" houses, accessories add to the ambiance of dollhouses.
For instance, in the bedroom of one of my dollhouses, (I have three all together plus a fourth in the attic, in need of major renovation), the residents are getting ready for a special occasion.
It's probably a birthday party because there are two small gifts on the dressing table.
Both are wrapped in pink so they must be for a girl or woman. (Sexist, I know, but it is what it is.)
There's also a teeny tiny swan there. See it?
Look at your thumb nail. That's about about how big the swan is.
When my daughter and her husband traveled to Europe last summer, she asked me what I'd like for a souvenir.
I told her something for my dollhouse. That way, she wouldn't have to spend too much (hopefully) and could easily pack it in her suitcase.
She brought me a gorgeous tea set that's in the dollhouse living room, ( see below), a tiny house in the attic that's actually a view master, and the swan.
Isn't the swan a delicate piece of whimsy?
