Colleen Moore's Fairy Castle



It is the ultimate enchanted castle: lush gardens, sumptuous rooms, decorated with precious furniture and priceless art. There are glowing chandeliers, and elegant bathrooms.
Not bad, for a doll house!

It's nine feet square, and stands 14 feet all.
"It's got 11 rooms, and each room is filled with murals, paintings on the walls and the ceilings of fantasy stories from childhood," said Kathleen McCarthy, chief curator of Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry, "so it's all sorts of creative stories to incite one's imagination."
