Moving On...

Now that Norm's has closed...

Norma has retired and is spending some quality time in her garden.

Spyro continues to be the awesome dollhouse doggie that he always was....

Though we think he might miss the dollhouse shop and seeing all the people (and all the treats too!)

David & I are still making miniatures, and I think we always will.

So, we've started up a new little online business - David & Wendy's Dollhouse.

We're just at the beginning, but we've already got some fun things that were never in Norm's...

And we're DEFINITELY going to be at the 37th Annual DMMDT Fall Show and Sale!

It will be weird to be there as David & Wendy's Dollhouse, and not as Norm's Dollhouse. But I think it's a good change.

Hopefully we'll see you there!

Anyway, all this is to say that we are abandoning this blog (not that it didn't already look abandoned, but still). We will be blogging all the interesting things to blog about on our NEW David & Wendy's Dollhouse Blog here - DWDollhouse Blog.

We're pretty excited about it. And we've got a newsletter sign up on that page too, so you can find out what's going on with us there too. (Newsletter sign up! Click here - DWDollhouse News & Notes )

So we hope you'll follow along with us on this new adventure. Thank you all for supporting us as Norm's Dollhouse for so many years. We're going to miss having a store, but we look forward to seeing you at shows!

See you soon, at David & Wendy's Dollhouse!

The 35th Annual Fall Show: Thank you DMMDT!!!

The Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys just held their 35th Annual Fall Show last weekend.

And we were there!

We brought lots of new stuff that folks hadn't seen before.

16 feet of stuff! We've never had that much table space before, and it was GREAT!!

We really tried to focus on handmade stuff this time around.

And it went quite well.

We premiered our new printed books (made just for us by Midnight in the Dollhouse) and they were a huge hit!

We also brought out our "crazy bird marionette" puppets, which were also a huge hit.

The turn out was great. We saw a lot of new faces, and a lot of our regular customers too.

There were so many wonderful things to see, I don't know how anyone could've seen it all. 

It was a great show! Many thanks to the DMMDT (Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys) for putting on another wonderful miniatures show. We're looking forward to doing it again next year! And we hope to see you there!

Customer Jon's Amazing Schoolroom

(If you click on the photos it makes them larger, and you're probably going to want to, because the detail in this is exquisite! - Wendy)

A couple days ago, one of our customers (a super spiffy gentleman named Jon) brought in a roombox he'd done to share with us.

Most everything in this school room was made by hand, by Jon himself.

We think it's just amazing.

He had just put the finishing touches on it that morning.

But the entire project took him about a year.

Meticulous and amazing work, Jon! Thank you for letting us take pictures and share your project with our readers! Absolutely gorgeous!!

And we hope you enjoyed looking at it! What are YOU working on over this long weekend? Any miniature projects? Hope you have a great weekend, no matter what you're doing! :)
