It's been a madly busy week, I've driven hundreds of kilometres - maybe I would have been faster in a sleek speed machine like this one!

Isn't it amusing how your eyes can be opened to noticing different things when you're interested in something new? The films in the DVD player in the last couple of weeks have included one of my all-time favourites, Life as a House (in which there is a multitude of architectural models at the start of the film, before the full-size house-building begins; and Suddenly 30 (known as 13-30 in the US, I think - Jennifer Garner & Mark Ruffalo) in which the dream dollhouse made by one of the characters for another of the characters is a critical plot element.

Is there a theme here? I wasn't trying to create a list of dollhouse films (I did a list of films featuring quilts years ago), let alone select viewing choices based on dollhouse content!

I missed the list of films featuring quilts. Can you do it again or point me to it?

I didn't publish that list on my blog, because it was compiled BB (Before Blog). I'll see if I can dig it out - although as it became rather long it might be a serial...

Hello,

I've been away to Barcelona and am now back - still enjoying your words and pictures.

There's a house in the background of the B&B in Groundhog Day if that helps...
