The plastic doll house furniture came with the House in Progress. The WOODEN doll house furniture? That came from my mom's attic and it used to be mine. (Read all the way to the bottom for an early example of my woodworking prowess. Nick, Trissa and Jenny are going to be OH SO PROUD!)
Do you see that pristine farm sink up there? So many old house fanatics would give their RIGHT ARM for that sink. Well, if it were full sized. But STILL!
Some of the furniture is from "Mini Land" and the quotes are their quotes, not mine. I don't have any information on it. It was made in Taiwan and has a logo that says MSR. Probably from the late 70's and early 80's.
Other pieces are from Chadwick-Miller in Canton-Massachusetts and are 30 years old or so. Not vintage by any means. (I hope! I mean, I'm older than 30, sheesh!)
My dad made my first doll house. A simple affair with four rooms that my mom lovingly decorated with contact paper. However, as a small child, it perplexed me that there wasn't a BATHROOM. I mean, c'mon! How in the world could that be?
So I built one. Out of popsicle sticks. This is probably my earliest woodworking project.
I was a very quirky and intense kid. Obviously.
(And did you know that investigators sometimes use doll house miniatures for crime scene investigations??!! Apparently, Barbie had found out that Ken was cheating. Now Barbie is doing thirty to life. So sad, really.)
