Today is Skipper Saturday of course,but that will be a separate post. I wanted to share with you my first great find of the yard saling season.Yesterday I swooped in on this cool deal:
It's Madeline's Old House in Paris dollhouse by Eden.
|It only has three pieces of the railing for the roof, but you can't have everything!|
I loved this house when it first came out years ago, but it was so expensive.I think it was sold in the mid to late 90's, when Emma was small.
|It has a battery operated door bell and a working porch lamp, (It's detatched and laying on the roof. I can't figure out where it attaches!) I haven't checked them out yet to see if they work. The chimney pots look better when they're attached too.|
The roof is a little yellowed and the outside is a little sunfaded, but it looks alot better now after a wipe down.
|The house has apparently been taken over by two bears. This one waits for a phone call at the kitchen table. It's gonna be a long wait buddy. That thing's not even hooked up.|
|This room is the only one missing a window. That bear thought there was a draft...|
|Unfortunately the hamper is missing the lid. I'm not sure if the first aid kit on the sink is Madeline or not. The great vintage style trunk is by Shackman. The tray sits down inside, just like a real trunk.|
One comment on this house: Everything is scaled for the 8" Madeline and friends dolls,so what does poor Miss Clavel do?
There were also alot of other miniature goodies.
|Complete bathroom gear,a dining room table with a removeable leaf, and an old fashioned stove. Just what I've been wanting for the kitchen in one of my 1/12th scale dollhouses!|
By the way, don't mind that giant green fish in the frying pan on the stove.
|The fish seems to be aware of his impending doom. Check out that look on his face. That stove needs a clean up.|
|Loads of other stuff, including a fireplace,a book case full of fake books, and more!|
