“The Texture House”

Hello Everyone,

I have just completed a project that was both challenging and touched my heart at the same time, and I wanted to share with all of you.

I have met so many wonderful people throughout this journey with dolls and the miniature world. Truly, some wonderful, inspirational and talented people.

You know, it still humbles and amazes me that people love my work and want to own a bit of it.   I am thankful to be talented and grateful to be able to put it to good use.

By request, I have built a one of a kind house for someone who is visually impaired.  The first thing that came to mind was that the house and rooms had to be easily accessible .  My next thought was about texture. This is one of the elements that I always consider when building a new piece. I love texture and color ! Bright colors for that matter.  I’m sure you’ll agree this is evident in my work.

When I thought about this request, it occurred to me that perhaps something “in the round” might work for my client, and so I suggested  something similar to the original Tressy Pent House from 1965.

The house has no walls or roof to inhibit play.  The main “core” of the house, serves as a back drop for each room and furniture can be picked up, felt and handled at will.  It even has a terrace on top of the building !

The “Texture” House , as I lovingly call it, has lots of elements to it. Stone work for the fire-place. Pebbled floor for the Terrace.  Chenille for the  bed spread.  Bamboo and Floral dividers as well as lots of bright colors , and even bright lights !

And so, I set out to create this very special home and I wanted to share it  with all of you.

I am going to let the pictures do the talking.

Thank You “Friend”  for  choosing Me.
