And, the Rosetta Stone Award goes to ...

It is time to pass on the Rosetta Stone Award. The Award is given to a dollhouse blogger who has contributed greatly to the information of dollhouse history. The award is kept for six months and then passed on to another worthy recipient.

The Rosetta Stone award was created by a committee  on My Realitty's blog. CM explained the creation of the award in this way.... "As we all know dollhouses were originally the hobby of the rich or tools to teach children how to keep house. Today people all over the world are interested in them. Note the number of bloggers and how dollhouse blogs are a world unto themselves. Though these houses may have started as toys and may have led a perilous life, once they are in the safe harbor of the collector they have a story to tell. This award is to acknowledge the sleuthing it takes to discover that story."

Previous winners have been collectors of great knowledge and generosity, and authors of some of my very favorite blogs. Check out their latest posts..... Rebecca's Collections ... from Australia, diePuppenstubensammlerin ...f rom Germany, A Home for Dolly ...f rom Ohio, USA, and Florine at My-vintage-dollhouses ... from Arizona, USA.

I  would like to pass the award on to Troy of Tulsa Tiny Stuff.

Troy has a wonderful collection of dollhouses and miniatures and is very generous about sharing with us. I always enjoy reading his blog and look forward to each entry.

I felt honored to be included among the winners of the Rosetta Stone Award and am happy to pass it on to the next recipient.

Congratulations Troy!
