Six dollhouses we have made in the last year. Each one is a tribute to our life. My career spanned 25 years working as a medical technologist in academic, clinical, and hospital laboratories. My husband has had an exciting career as a lawyer, artist, and musician. The third dollhouse was a room of shops that represented Bob’s law office and an art gallery. Within the art gallery are miniature replicas of his current art works.
The fourth dollhouse was made out of all the left over wood scraps. We call it, Eddie’s Market. My grandson, is Eddie. He likes being a shop owner. He is three. The fifth dollhouse was actually a 1:12 scale travel trailer we converted into a wiener wagon. My son’s dream is to own a food truck.
The sixth dollhouse is my pride and joy. It is a scale laboratory. The details are very good. The remarkable detail is important, because laboratory supplies are not available in the miniature world. However, some medical equipment and nurses and doctor dolls are available. Since laboratory personnel are often offended when mistaken for a nurse, I made reasonable efforts to convert or hand make the items in the laboratory scene.
