Art or Dream? Life Size Doll House

If you follow my likes and my paintings, you will often see little houses. Or you might see apartment buildings. Sometimes, you might even see cross sections of houses, looking like doll houses.
Just like this.

Yes. That's the inside of my head, and here is is in Saskatchewan. Real live. Life size. Canadian artist Heather Benning created it and stocked it with furniture from the 60's, when last the house was kicking.

I'm not sure what this house means to me, but it means something.

Thanks to Mrs. French for posting about it here: Bliss: another house that has been on my mind lately...

Will I feel like a stiff doll that must be wearing an apron and bending over the oven? Will my thoughts be dictated by a big person moving me around?

I want to try it out.

Wow that's a trip!

I'll share one of my new (to me) favorite artists, Mandy Jordan. She makes the coolest little houses. I don't think she has a blog but you can see them in her etsy shop-

Are those glass windows and sliding glass doors-kind of like glass walls?
