The Tale of Winsford House

by Celia Thomas

Celia Thomas has been a professional miniaturist now since 1997 trading as KT Miniatures and has had numerous articles published in various publications over the years. During the course of time, she has seen dozens of vintage dolls houses come and go but just occasionally something very special comes along. Winsford House was thought to be just another 1960’s dolls house on first inspection, but when renovation began, a lovely discovery was made which saw this dolls house turn into something quite unique indeed.

This is a very brief story of the tale that this little dolls house revealed and includes details on how it was renovated to bring it back to its former glory, with handy tips on vintage dolls house restoration. One of these tips includes detailed information on how to replicate vintage dolls house brick paper.

At the handy smaller A5 size with 28 full colour pages along with laminated front and back covers, this book is the first in what will be a whole series on not only vintage dolls houses, but miniature projects based on the 1930’s/1940’s era.

Price £5.99 each plus P&P.
