Dateman Books Competition 2012

Hello everyone,

Hope you are all well. My family and I have been very ill for the past week. It is just awful when you get sick and you have to look after small children who are sharing the same illness. Thank God that it is over. Haven't worked a lot on my project being so busy at home but I had some exciting news and I wanted to share it with you.

Last December I had entered in a small competition which was organized by Dateman Books. Dateman Books is a company which makes dolls house miniature printed books. They have all types of books; children, classics, fiction and so many more. 

Dateman Books planned to make a new miniature book, which was all about dolls houses. In order to produce this book they needed a lot of dolls house pictures. So they organized this competition world wide where one could send photos of their dolls houses. After the closing date Dateman Books selected 28 lucky photos to appear in the book. Each successful individual would receive a copy of the book when published. I gave it a try and sent my entry in the last day. I had sent a picture of my Sea View.

The new book was launched at the City Fair (from the orgainisers of The Kensington Dollshouse Festival) held at the Tower Hotel in London on the 27th January 2013 where the winners where revealed. I didn't hear from them and I forgot all about it.

A few days ago I got a small envelope in my mail. I didn't even realized from whom it was. I was so surprised to find this little dolls house book and then it clicked. I was one of those lucky winners that had their dolls house picture published in the miniature book.

I am  so proud that my name and my country have been mentioned in this lovely book. I have been  so thrilled to see my dolls house published with other dolls houses from all over the world.

Thank you so much Terry and Ann from Dateman Books to give me such an opportunity and such an honor.

Please keep tuned as I will be sharing with you some new miniatures very soon.

Take Care
