From the Editor
Welcome to the August 2011 issue of the Dolls Houses Past and Present magazine.
Some time ago, I asked for suggestions of topics you'd like to see covered inthe magazine. I'm happy to say that the requested in-depth look at Pit-a-Pat appears in this issue, thanks to the 21 members and friends who have contributed photos of furniture, packaging, labels and a catalogue.
This issue also contains a combined look at the topic of collecting on a budget, thanks to Wendy Stephen who initiated it, and the three members who shared their ideas.
As well, there are mouth-watering miniatures to marvel at, whether your taste is for antique or modern dolls houses.
I hope you all find something to enjoy - and don't forget the give-away competition at the end!
