Yes Margaret you are exactly right I am afraid about the dollhouse
I found myself starting to look at dollhouse furnitures etc etc besides EL solid perfume on eBay everyday now. My colleague told me there is this hobby shop in the CBD that has dollhouse stuff and I am planning to "have a look" when I have a chance. I have a feeling what this will lead to....
My only constraint is I don't have the space (although I have a second bedroom that at present is full of my clothes) so this might be a "deterence". If you have a chance, I would be very very interested to see a photo of your dollhouse! I have printed one from eBay which is a bakery but it is sold as a built set and I think it's not much fun as I want to build my own to display my solids, just need to think where to put this and buy the necessary "furnitures" and asscessories!
I practically just collect the ones that I like. At first, I don't have enough to display them in a "theme" set but now I don't have the space I bought a set of table and chairs (miniature dollhouses ones) and some mini cutlery trying to set up a "dining scene" with my teacup, coffee cup, wedding cake etc on the table. I got them yesterday but the table is really small and I can only put the two cups and the dessert on it! I have got one shelf for the older solids, one for the sparkling newer ones and one for the "animals" and cameos but as I said am running out of space! Not sure what to do next
A warm welcome from the South. Before you, I was the "newest" member I think to this great group (not sure what we are called?). I started collecting in March this year and I have about 150 solids now! I started with collecting everything as I wanted to build up a collection quickly but soon found it's not much fun to collect empty ones! I then started to replace them with the ones with perfume and boxes and now only buy compacts which have at least perfume in them even without boxes. The only exceptions might be the really old and hard to find ones that I really want.
It's definitely addictive as I have to go on eBay every day for a few times to make sure I haven't "missed" anything My husband is getting a bit annoyed too with my newfound hobby as I promised I will only buy so many to fill up the antique display cabinet that he bought for me for the solids but now I'm running out of space and am trying to persuade him that WE need another one
Again, very happy that you join us and good luck with your collection!
