The dollhouse display at the Iowa State Fair is one of my must-sees each year.
And each year, the incredible details mesmerize me.
Kids have the best view, tall people have to bend down to see in.
I decided to let my camera do the peeking.
It could see much better than I could!
Porches are great on dollhouses.
Dolls really know how to live.
Bird bath, check.
I’d seriously live here.
Wait till you see inside.
Telescope for star gazing.
Even a heat register.
Good taste in art too!
The curtain blowing in the breeze is awesome.
Made from old barn wood, mind boggling details.
Leaves and meter on side of house, crazy stuff.
See, it’s even got a blogging spot.
And my coffee’s ready.
Love the transom over the door.
The more I look at this, the more amazing it is.
Note the worn paint on the door, the tile, the hat on the top of the desk,
the vase by the door, the light fixture, the pictures on the floor,
leaning against the wall.
Very very keen observers, these Iowans are.
Damn you. I was all set to skip the MN state fair this year. Now I'm thinking I'll have to go and see how we compare to our southern rivals.
That was cool. Thanks for posting it. We got to the DuPage county fair but it can't compare to a state fair.
tlarso: the MN fair is great!!
Better politicians to talk to also.
I got Jesse Ventura's autograph on a big dollar bill the year he was running for gov.
