Great post ! Thanks for the tour of your new home ... I really enjoyed it. It looks like it's from the 1950's ... maybe ?

I loved this post. Your dollhouse is adorable. I loved playing with my doll house when I was little.


Thanks for the tour of your new house -- it's lovely! My sisters and I had a beautiful wood dollhouse when we were growing up in the 50s, but I secretly coveted the Marx metal versions with their trompe l'oeil-ish interiors and all the latest features, like patios.


Ah...the joy of a house so easily moved. This is the kind I love and yours is so well kept. Great find. I too love that reel mower and would give it a spin on the litho grass if I could...smiles...Renee


Is there a guest room where I can come and visit?

Love, love, love this doll house. I have a less than perfect one that I adore. It has issues but it was only two dollars, so I have learned to overlook it's shortcomings. Maybe I will happen upon a perfect one like yours one day too!


Well that is just one of the cutest things I have ever seen. Period. Sitting here with my mouth hanging open. I'm going to go back and look again.
Big high-five on a red letter junking day!


That is one shiny kitchen floor! What a great find!

Great find. I have an unfurnished metal dollhouse...perhaps we could put them side by side and be neighbors. Maybe I could borrow the mower to mow the lawn....

lucky gal.


You find the absolute greatest things. I try hard not to be jealous, but this one has me green with envy.
Can I come over to play? :)


that is so great! i have been thinking about picking one of those up, but i'm not sure where to put it.


Man I wished my house looked like that - and so clean and shiny (Donald included) LOL


Aww I love it! The furniture is great, if I saw that at a sale I would surely jump out of the car before it was stopped. Happy summer sales!

Into Vintage

This place is definitely turn-key, right down to the curtains and bath towels. I would like to see a tiny vintage tablecloth on that kitchen table. Did you find one of those too?

Squeal! I can never get enough dollhouses. Don't even ask me how many I own (or will admit to owning). We're on a roadtrip right now and I almost picked up another one yesterday at an antique mall. Your furniture is just perfect for that special dwelling.

I hope you don't mind that lovely shade of GREEN I've turned! Your new house is just the best find I've seen in a long time! HAVE FUN! I'll be over later to play!


I love it. I had one of those lovely metal dollhouses. Cut myself countless times on its rusty corners. Kids were tough then. Amazing that it is so perfectly furnished.

I love the vintage metal dollhouses. I tried and tried to get my girls interested in dollhouses and paper dolls without success. I guess I still wanted to play!


Oh my goodness! Could that be my dollhouse?? I had one, just like it! Must have been late 40's - early 50's. I'm ashamed to tell what happened to it. I traded it, with all its furniture, for a pair of multi-colored strap sandals! I hadn't asked permission, and expected some kind of punishment that never occurred. I guess my parents knew I'd suffer for my foolish act. And I did - I had to make my own dollhouse furniture with cardboard and thread spools, and set up housekeeping in an orange crate. Thank you so very, very much for this trip down memory lane. By the way, I have a drawer full of feedbags, as they're called here in PA. My grandma made everything with them, from underwear to curtains and anything else she needed.
I dearly love your blog, as everything you show is exactly what I have or would have if given the opportunity!!
