Madeline Dollhouse Wallpaper

madeline_dollhouse_nyt.jpgI was waiting for J. Courtney Sullivan's NY Times article about her deep commitment to her childhood dollhouse to turn out not to be one of those adults-way-too-into-dollhouses stories. I guess the fact that she started going to dollhouse furniture conventions when she was seven should've beaten that hope right out of me.

On the bright side, high five to young Sullivan and her dad for installing this rather excellent Madeline wallpaper. If anyone knew how to fill a wall, it was Ludwig Bemelmans.

I want to see how she papered the walls of the dollhouse within the dollhouse.
