My little houses in Daphne's Diary!

 The July/August issue of Daphne's Diary - a most beautiful lifestyle magazine for women - arrived here in my mailbox all the way from the Netherlands today. I am thrilled to be able to tell you there is an article about me and my dollhouses in this issue.
 Daphne's Diary is a Dutch magazine and it doesn't matter at all that I don't understand Dutch because the pictures and style of the magazine are absolutely breathtaking.
The whole magazine is set out in the style of a beautiful shabby scrapbook.

I'd like to say a huge thank you to Wendy for asking me to be part of this gorgeous magazine
 and to Henk for his very clever editing of my photos.
The website for the magazine is here - Daphne's Diary.
I believe it is available in The Netherlands and Belgium and Germany (thank you Lotte!).

  22. Well I know this is very late, but I just Googled Daphne's Diary as I wanted to find out if I could order by mail... and your link was there, so I had to have a look. The cover of the magazine you show is different to the one we had on sale here in the UK, which I discovered by chance. Nor did it have your delightful miniatures.... they are just so beautiful, the cottage a realo delight... how I wish there were people who made such beauties here since I can no longer do it.
    Thank you for sharing.
