my little house

lastly in the series of little house posts, here is mine. my grandmother gave it to me when i was little. it is made by marx. the house is metal and the furniture plastic. it's from, i guess the 60's, maybe 50's. it was already at least 20 years old when i received it :

the business side.

the kitchen

livingroom. i like how this picture turned out.

my naked lady sunning herself on the patio. bedroom seen behind her.

bathroom and nursery in background. the patio has a little pond. i have always been fond of that feature.

the peeping tom side.

more houses!

nearby, there is a museum which showcases oddities (a petrified cat from the early 1900's) and other interesting collections (antique medicine side show bottles/containers). The current show is of DOLLHOUSES!!! the majority of the display consists of these huge handmade houses of various themes built by one lady. i certainly can respect the amount of time and energy that was put into them only my sights were set on these vintage darlings:

the houses were bolted down so i was unable to photograph the insides. additionally, along the background walls were reproduction vintage doll house advertisements:
a dollar a set! a DOLLAR a SET!

that magnetic one looks like fun and all for just 3.33!

it has a little yard and a little fence and a little swing set! and if there is a little dog there better be little poops too.

little house pace

hello all! i am back, in a way, on a limited basis. i have surely missed MHICTY.

and on that note, since i will be posting minutely, here is a tiny sweet house i recently received. don't let the children depicted on the box be used to determine size. they must be rather petite because the house measures only about 5 inches wide.

i'll be back again, darlings!
