  1. Only just found your doll house advent calendar. It is fantastic. Absolutely love it.
    I know how much time there is (not) during advent with children so have full understanding that there is „only“ the living room. In case you decide to add another room this christmas I would be thrilled 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing it.
