Min pappa plockade snällt ner mammas gamla dockskåp från 60-talet till mig när jag var hemma förra helgen. Vi fick leka försiktigt med det när vi var små; nu möblerade jag det ur minnet och enligt mamma träffade jag nästan rätt med allt. Visst är det fint? Mina favoriter är tapeten, köksskåpet, radiogrammofonen och skidåkaren på tv:n. Mamma berättade att hon fick önska sig en möbel i taget och att hon aldrig haft några dockor till det. Men om hon är som jag så tyckte hon nog att det roligaste var att möblera ändå.

My dad was kind enough to bring my mom's dollhouse from the '60s down from the attic when I was home last weekend. We were allowed to play with it carefully when we were kids; now I decorated it from memory and according to my mom I got most of it right. Isn't it lovely? My favorites are the wallpaper, the kitchen cabinet, the radio-gramophone and the skier on the little TV. My mom says she wished for one piece of furniture at a time (for birthdays and Christmas) and she never actually had any dolls in it. But if she's anything like me she probably preferred re-decorating anyway.

  3. Kul! Hade glömt bort detta, men känner igen det nu när jag ser bilderna. "Rörliga bilder" på TV-apparaterna - ej att förglömma!

  15. That dollhouse is incredible! :)
    I was the same - I spent most of my time decorating and re-decorating rather then playing with any dolls.

    jag och en vän håller på med ett dockskåpsprojekt nu , och undrar lite vart man får tag på såna här , vet du? du verkar vara lite av en dockskåpsexpert :)

  19. raquel: jag är verkligen ingen expert, jag bara råkar har en mamma med ett gammalt dockskåp. jag brukar springa på liknande dockskåp ganska ofta i secondhandaffärer, så kolla där och kanske blocket?
