First of all, Happy Canada Day (or Dominion Day, as it was known when I was a girl :) Today we celebrate 143 years since the British North America Act created the Dominion of Canada. Canada is one of those countries which, logically, shouldn't exist, but I'm very glad it does :) I love my country, and am proud to be a Canadian!

This blog chronicles the adventures of a group of Canadians building a 1:12 scale medieval or Tudor dolls' house or dolls' castle. We're also working on a William and Mary era dollhouse circa 1700, featuring Jacobean, Carolean and Queen Anne furniture. Dollhouse aficionados, those who enjoy making or sharing doll house miniatures, and people who enjoy sharing crafts with children may enjoy the adventures of this group.
I built the background image of this site using some of the fabulous work from Vintage Retro Grunge. The "Green Man" reproduction medieval tile on the bottom right is by Kate Tiler. The other two, the griffon and the happy little creature (possibly a lion with a bagel?), are both by Pataki Tiles.
