This is a very full room, many people who aren't collectors look in it and I'm sure they are so relieved they don't collect, lol. I have collected smaller vintage Snoopy figures in the antique metal hospital display and Disney figures, old books and albums, antique children's books and old toys, sewing buttons and ephemera. Thought I would give you a peak. You can see my two country style houses I am rearranging and changing, a half scale house and some of my room boxes. John designed the house shown in the photo above from a heritage country home from about 1880 here in Victoria. I have my other room boxes that are shown on my web site in my studio.
You can see my great grandmother's antique grey wedding dress behind the door, it has a basque too that isn't on it. They were married in 1872 so that would be the age of the gown. You can also see many of the photo albums I've reproduced in miniature.
