The winner of one of the baby patterns is Carol.
I love the hunt! One of the things I did on our antiquing trip through Iowa was hunt for dollhouse furniture for my metal dollhouse that my granddaughter Rowan and I play with. I was having so much fun because I accumulated a whole park for the outside of the house. Then I found this rec room/garage that I have not seen before. We are calling it the man cave for the daddy doll.
|Back of the house. I bought it originally for $40.00 at a antique store. It had a few pieces of furniture with it when I got it.|
|Front of the house. I took it to quilt market once and used all the rooms for office supplies.|
|Our dollhouse guard dog! You push on the chimney and then it makes a barking sound.|
|Our TV for our man cave. It's actually a salt and pepper shaker. You turn the big knob and the shakers come up.|
|The lid goes on this little washing machine.|
|The sewing machine folds down just like the big ones.|
|The little bowl slides in underneath the little potty chair.|
|The highchair / rocker in the highchair position.|

I also came across this early cardboard Barbie Dream House and had to take a photo. My sister Julie and I had one of these. Ours was all blue instead of brown and blue. When someone passed it on to us to play with it only had a few pieces of furniture unlike this one. I can't remember what the price of this one was....but I remember it wasn't cheap. It was a nice trip down memory lane seeing this one.
|Front of the house all folded out. It folds up like a suitcase and has a handle for carrying.|
|The three rooms with all the cardboard furniture.|
My Grandma Bess had a metal dollhouse with a few pieces of furniture that I played with when I was little. I am so enjoying my second childhood playing with Rowan. I really didn't need an excuse but having Rowan and now Norah her little sister makes it so COMPLETE! It is so much fun being a grandma!
Make a comment about your second childhood. It might be buying the Easy-Bake Oven that you always wanted or the sporty car that you couldn't afford in your youth. We will pick a comment by random for a chance to win a Quilt Diva pin. We will announce the winner next Monday - October 21st.
