Oooh, I've read the book she wrote about the castle:  all the fabulous work the studio technicians did in building it for her, incredible close ups of all the rooms and treasures.  Yes, do go see it.

    I'm going to be in Chicago the first of July (5-11th)


  Well, it has nothing to do with textiles, but my favorite thing to see in Chicago is Colleen Moore's Fairy Castle at the Museum of Science and Industry. Colleen Moore was a very famous 20s silent screen star, and she built this amazing dollhouse castle with diamond chandilers, pearl and ebony inlaid floors, real silver and gold, etc. It's truly wonderful if you like that kind of thing.

  who'd be spending all her money on dollhouses if it didn't already go to textiles
