We weren't really in the market for a new house, but that was before I found the perfect place.
The red and white striped awnings are what first caught my eye.
I liked what I found inside, too. Check out this view from the kitchen windows!
It was nice of the previous owners to leave behind their pastel dishes. And their juicer.
The living room will be perfect on those cool fall nights. The decor is a little colonial for my tastes, but that's easy enough to fix.
I've always wanted a fireplace in the master bedroom.
The bathroom is tiny, but it's got all of the basics.
The kids will have to share a bedroom, but I'm sure they won't mind.
Especially since they have these nice cubbies where they can keep their toys.
How old is it? Oh, fifty-something. I think it was built in 1952 or 1953. Remember the bank I showed you yesterday, by Marx? They built this house, too.
Upstairs or downstairs, inside or out, it's a wonderful place.

More than anything, I'm very impressed with the photos -- did the house come with a tiny camera too? Love the vintage tile in the bathroom - that's so hard to find in good condition.

Can you get me the realtor's card? ;-)
I think the bathroom is my favorite--and I wish my house had all those built-in cubbies!

When I was small my grandparents used to take me to the auction with them every Friday night. I swear those houses (and their plastic furniture!) were a dime a dozen and I had more than one of them for a long time.
(And then my uncle decided they were worth $$ and came and took them out of my grandparents garage without even asking me. Le sigh.)

Your little house looks to be in pristine condition. Wouldn't it be fun to live in it for a day?

Very cute doll house! Funny thing is, I just looked at a listing on a (full sized) house- built in 1948...same bathroom!

I love it! I have 2 of these houses - one is in my office with stationery,ribbon,gift enclosures, etc. The other is in my kitchen - receipts, cktl napkins, bills, etc. LOVE them!

My mom had one very similar and also one that was more of a mid-century ranch-style. I wonder if she still has them??
September 13, 2010 at 10:15 PM
Oh - I think it's like mine!! Except on mine, the upkeep hasn't been quite as good.
Yours looks great!

I think I would be moving into the room with the toy soldiers.
I need to go take a closer look at the house I have downstairs and see if it has the same charm as yours.

I had a darling tin / metal Dollhouse in the 60's I think our Mom got it at the Blue chip Stamp Store, I have a scar on one of my fingers from it to this day! I left it on the steps when I went up and on the way down I fell and cut myself on the patio edge! Ouch! Hugs, Diane

Oh, I was sold from the first peek of the red and white awnings. Love it!

The only way in which my siblings and I were spoiled as children was with Marx toys. We had four uncles who worked in the factory in Erie, Pa. Every Christmas the piles of toy boxes were higher than we were tall. That's why the cute little house looks so familiar.
Thanks for bring back some sweet memories.

Oh, I always love these when I see them, drawn as I am to Mid-Century everything, but never have actually purchased one. Not exactly practical for a grown woman with limited space, but your previous poster has given me some ideas for alternative uses to play! Hope you're well, Mrs. Oodles. XO

Oh, I forgot that I had one like this! And yes, you could injure yourself if not careful. I'd get frustrated that I couldn't move the rugs or pictures around (indicative of my life today). Love the rifle over the fireplace...so child friendly.
