i first discovered heather benning's dollhouse in lula # 8 months ago, and its still haunting me. the idea of a life size dollhouse composed from within a rotting, abandoned home in the middle of a prairie is so creepy & amazing, i've been working a on a short story about it.

I absolutely love this...very eerie and yet inviting at the same time. One would expect the inhabitants to return at any moment.

I love it, It's perfect for someone who always wondered what it's be like to step into a life sized doll house.
