Dolls’ house returned to owner after house sale mix-up

June 20th, 2014

A woman whose possessions went into storage when she was ill in hospital and got sold off by accident has been reunited with one of her favourite heirlooms – her beloved dolls’ house.

Daisy Phillips beat late stage cancer but found out about the error with her worldly goods only after being discharged from hospital.

Her daughter Olivia told KGW, in Portland, Oregon, “I started crying, I couldn’t control myself, and we just held each other.

“She has cancer and that’s a really scary thing and these are important family things that one day I wanted to give to my children.”

The online newspaper covered Daisy’s plight as she tried to track down her missing heirlooms.

Then she got word that someone had located her special dolls’  house, which had been inside the storage unit.

She had to buy the dollhouse back, at a cost of $500, but it she had it back and that’s all that mattered.

Huge dolls’ house is worth £13,000

June 14th, 2014

Weighing in at an amazing 200 pounds and costing more than £13,000, this huge dolls’ house has 13 rooms over three storeys including five bedrooms, library, kitchen, dining room, marble hall and a utility room. 

You may have seen it in your local papers but the Daily Mail online has gone to town with some amazing photos.

A remote controls the individually wired light switches, six of the 14 chimneys are linked to a smoke generator, both front and back doors have a doorbell, while in a modern twist, the home includes an iPad Nano which powers the speaker in the music room.

Sarah Walkley, now aged 40, was five years old when she asked her father for the doll’s house on Christmas Eve 1978.

Thirty-five years later her dad has finally finished the job.
