These are beautiful, thank you so much for photographing these photos. It makes me want to try my hand at a house. I like your fabric from the previous post. I'm sure she was just as delighted with her doll as you are the fabric. How do you take such beautiful closeups with your camera of the fabrics? Thanks for sharing.

Wow, that is such a nice book. I really love their choice of colours. I should get some japanese books but they are very rare in Canada :(

They are fun aren't they? The people who wrote the book are very clever! Having been to Japan it's not hard to believe, the shops and all when we were there... a million years ago are so great! They really dote on kids/family things. So, what are you going to make first (I'm sure that you will be borrowing the book right?)?
