The winter of 2010 - 2011 demanded a great deal of my time to assemble these doll houses for my Grandchildren. They were constructed from Dura Craft kits. There are over 1000 shingles on the roof of the larger house, each glued individually. The photo was taken on our deck overlooking the Logan River. Didn't realize when the photo was made that the background would be in perspective. I use this photo as a screen saver.

    Thank you Manikin. Did you notice the doll in the serape by the front door of the small house? It is a knitted cover for a tabasco bottle.

    Oh I didn't know it was a Mexico home but yes now I see the Doll in vivid serape - :-) To cute . A nice place for a siesta with lots of shade to stay out of sun . Fantastic !!
