I thought I would show you one of my most prized possessions. This Victorian doll house stands about 18" tall and is about 18" wide. It is 70+ years old and is carved entirely out of old wooden cigar boxes. One of my Mother's uncles carved it for her when she was very young. During her childhood and mine it occupied a place underneath the Christmas tree where my Grandmother would set up a Christmas village. It's inhabitants are porcelain figurines that were popular after the War. I have enjoyed displaying this beautiful piece of craftsmanship year-round for all of my adult years. It truly is one of my treasures. A light burns inside always...a reminder that home is always a warm, cozy safe haven.
