Ho Scale Train Houses etc....

I've always admired from afar HO scale train houses. Then, I caved and won one thru ebay really cheap!
 This particular train house is gorgeous, it reminds me of many of the dollhouses and bungalows I fell in love with of this era. Mid-Century Modern looks for sure. I found out it is made by Faller a German company that makes small scale homes to display with a train sets. This one is from the 1960's, set #271. Still needs some work, as some parts seem a bit off and maybe some repainting.

 Then, I also found a print-out of Barbie's Dream House by a new flickr friend here! I had fun printing and folding the house parts to create this miniature case! I also, already had some HO scale vintage furniture to put into it!!

 More shots above and below...
 Ho scale is quite interesting and so teeny tiny for sure!! I don't know how others get the tiny people to stay standing and all the pieces to stay up...I'd have to read up on that? LOL!

 Of course, I had to add this shot of Mirai at her new desk! I added books onto the shelf, a lamp that goes perfect on the desk, from the Licca lot of tiny toys, and lastly, the school bag!!

Thanks for reading! - ggsdolls


  1. Oh wow, that is a wonderful HO version of Barbie's Dream House! I will check out the link you've given - thank you! :-D
    I have that Faller house too - and a few others, but this is definitely one of my favourites! Some of mine have printed paper crazy paving outside, and curtains and furniture inside :-D
