Since we did a Monday night TV night but last night J&M and Cycling S and I gathered to eat snacks, drink wine and watch the repeat of The Collectors on their big screen whiz-bang TV before dinner.
After the show finished it hit me that last night marked the end of an era of my life which started over two years ago when my CMAG exhibition was confirmed (and much longer ago, if you count when I first started dreaming about it.
I suppose I'd better hatch a new grandiose mad plan for the next few years...
Someone asked me (sorry can't find the original comment/ email) what the "holy grails" I mentioned on the show were.
In no particular order (and I've probably forgotten some):
* The 1967 Lundby flat roofed house (photo from the We Love Lundby site):* A Brio 1960s bungalow (photo from The Museum of Doll's Houses):* A Triang suntrap, even though it's outside the terms of my current Collection Development Policy (photo from V&A Museum of Childhood): * More Vero houses (picture from Rebecca's Collections): * A New Zealand made Jomax house:* Jenny's Home components (photo from Vintage Dolls Houses):
What are your "holy grails"?
