One of my first loves has always been miniatures. Although I had dollhouses as a child, none of them were like the dollhouse I dreamed of owning one day—one with working lights and lots of rooms to decorate any way I wanted. I never did outgrow my miniature mania. If anything my love of all things small has increased over time. As an adult I began what would become a lifetime hobby of collecting and make miniature dollhouses. I currently own four dollhouses—a Halloween dollhouse, a mermaid dollhouse, a valentine dollhouse and my dream dollhouse, with working lights and ten bedrooms. My next project? A centaur dollhouse, of course.
