    In browsing through my craft bookmarks, it seems Shadowmanor has been the source for quite a percentage. All my vaguely gothy kids thank you.

    I recently found your blog and have thoroughly enjoyed everything I’ve read. I just wanted to thank you for the link to dollhouse miniatures. My great-aunt was a doll-maker who also had an impressive dollhouse and miniature collection. I loved losing myself in that dollhouse with its delicate and frozen feel.

    I love the title of Kevorkian’s “Very Still Life”. It makes me giggle.

    And those dollhouse miniatures make me wish I still had a dollhouse! I don’t think my überxian sister would appreciate me supplementing her daughter’s dollhouse with these, unfortunately. Maybe I can send them anonymously…
