This is a bit of an odd entry, but I find myself fascinated by dollhouses. I once went into a shop that sold items specifically for dollhouses and discovered it was possible to purchase a miniature box of condoms, and that’s when I realized it was possible to make a dollhouse version of anything. For a while, I considered making a dollhouse of my actual apartment, but then I would trash it, as though the doll versions of myself were slobby hedonists. It would be like a dollhouse version of Dorian Grey’s portrait, as though my pit-together real world were simply a masquerade covering for a dissolute private life, which would be true.
Lately I find myself thinking about making an Irish pub dollhouse. I have always wanted my own Irish pub, but am in no condition to buy one, so perhaps a tiny version will do.
I suppose one might start with an empty dollhouse room — those are easy to find — and then just start filling it with stuff. And there is a lot of stuff out there. I mean, whiskey bottles?
Here’s your whiskey bottles. But perhaps you want specific brands?
There are no lack of options for liquor bottles. And your going to need a proper bar to serve these from.
It’s not cheap, and there are more pocketbook friendly, but, my God, if I had the spare change I would live in this.
But you’re going to need some chairs.
There. And what about signage?
And you’re probably going to want to set some pub rules.
6. PUB RULES SIGN, $2.50
Your patrons may want to play darts.
And maybe you want to cook some proper Irish food for your clientele.
And finally, just to give the place atmosphere, a collection of Irish magazines and CDs.
\There’s more, much more, but I could get lost in this forever. Perhaps one day I will.
