We're using this '50s metal dollhouse (a recent thrift purchase) on our Christmas mantel! It has a mirror behind it and lights strung through it, giving the windows a lovely festive glow!

Billings Estate a.k.a. Park Hill in Ottawa, Ontario, was built between 1827 and 1829 for for Braddish and Lamira Billings. The Estate was designated a National Historic Site in 1968 and became a museum in 1975. It has a cemetery on the property with graves dating to 1820.
This home is a great example of Georgian architecture for its landscaped lot, symmetry, wooden cladding, paired chimneys, dentil moulding, portico, dormer windows, and 5 bays of multi-paned windows with a centered door occupying the middle bay on both floors.
It is sensible and elegant.
