I wasn’t intending to write about Raphael Tuck at all, but have just come across the most wonderful website.
As well as a few examples from The Doll’s House Furniture Series
There are also things like the Louis Wain cat paper dolls
Not to mention hundreds and hundreds of wonderful examples of period postcards.
It truly is the most fantastic resource and well worth investigating.

What was I intending to write about?
This week, Monday evening was supposed to be my “internet” evening and my plan was to have something ready for this blog.
I thought about what to write all weekend and came up with –
“Last week I made theatres.”
“This week I am making fans.”
I was planning to do a slideshow about making a fan (like these) but, after I had taken the first photo, my camera batteries died and they will take least 12 hours to recharge.
However, I will be making fans tomorrow too, so all is not lost and maybe I will be able to write two posts this week !
