And now for the rest of the story...

These two houses are my very first ones. I made the Artply Bobbi (on the right) when I was pregnant for my oldest. The Greenleaf Canterbury was done when I was pregnant for my middle child.
The Greenleaf Jefferson was built when I was pregnant for my last child. It represents our real house as it was in 1993. Since Christmas is my favorite time of year, the house is always decorated for Christmas. On the right is a garden made in an aquarium.
This house is a RGT Vermont Farmhouse, Jr. It represents the farmhouse I grew up in in the 1970s.
De's Diner on the left was made in a 1950s era tin breadbox. The DuraCraft house is Santa and Mrs. Claus's home.
These two houses are both decorated in Victorian style. The one on the left is the RGT Victorian Cottage, Jr. The parents of the lady in the other house live here. The left house is similar to the RGT Allison, Jr. but it's a Petite Dreams Victorian. I think there are more staff than family in this house, lol.

So, there you have it. My entire dollhouse/roombox collection. I'm pretty much out of room and I don't want to sell anything out of my collection so I may have to learn to like 1:144. :0)

How cool to see your whole collection, De! Thanks for sharing it (and we expect to see your first finished 1:144 house by tomorrow, lol!)

Wow! You have quite a collection of houses and so neat how each one represents a special home you lived in or a special time in your life! So inspiring as Joanna and I are getting ready--finally--to wire her house!

De! I'm worn out!

What an incredible collection you have.

Are you scheduling tours? ;)

I did set everything up in my kitchen, dining and living rooms once as a mini museum for our church senior citizens' group. I have a very large dining room table and I set the houses up like a city block on a green tablecloth with the wedding gazebo in the center park area. I put all the rooms that I had at that time on the kitchen counters -they wouldn't all fit there now. ;)

Jody, that's why I couldn't ever sell any of them. They all have some personal significance.

And thank you both!

You have a wonderful collection. Maybe you could now stick to roomboxes as they would fit nicely into a bookcase unit. I do not have much room either but I do not want to do 144 as it is just too hard to do that small and also very hard to see the details. I certainly understand how you would not want to sell anything. They are all keepers.
