Dollhouse Conservatory

I recently gave Megan and Devon the dollhouse I had when I was growing up. When I was younger, my favorite part of the dollhouse was a miniature conservatory which looked very much like this, only I stained the panels dark and painted the trim metallic gold. I filled the conservatory with strange collectibles that I found in museum shops, catalogues, and souvenir stands at the 1986 World's Fair in Vancouver. Alas, the conservatory did not survive the ten years of storage in my parents' garage. However, its contents did. I bought a new conservatory kit and put it together with the girls. It looks even better than before!

Happy Easter!

See here for the 2011 Washington Post Peeps Diorama Contest. I liked the Spider-Peep
The Musical and Peeps for a Cure.

Bedroom Finished!

I got my Edward Gorey poster back from the framer, which means our bedroom walls are now complete. Here is a slideshow of the art in our bedroom.

X is for Xenophobia

I used Xenophobia for X, illustrated with a "No Aliens" pictogram. I drew this as a sort of tribute to my pictogram series. I was going to make my own pictogram, but I discovered that one already exists. Thank you, World Alien Resistance Network!


This was my dollhouse when I was a kid. The girls are finally old enough for it, so I moved it from my parents house and set it up in Megan and Devon's room. It held up remarkably well, considering that it is thirty years old and sat in a crate in my parents' garage for ten years. I superglued the porch back together, which worked well, except that my fingers are now encrusted with superglue. A small price to pay.
