My New House

I know it isn't good to buy a new house on a whim...but I couldn't resist. This house just spoke to me, and before I could think about it too was mine.

It a real fixer-upper, but I can see the potential. Come on in, and I'll show you around. The front door needs a fresh coat of paint.

But, I really like the front stairway.

This room with the fireplace is my favorite...warm and inviting. Probably needs a rug.

The play room.

I suppose you have figured out by is a wee little house. Got it at my favorite junk store...$20.

Here's the side view.

And, lastly, the adorable windows which open. I have furniture in the attic and am looking forward to moving in!


  1. I used to love my dolls house, this one is beautiful, can't wait to see it when renovated. what a great find.

  2. I love that! I had a doll house when I was a little girl. I miss it.

  3. When my third son was born, I sold the doll house I had saved for my Barbie doll heads fell joke.

    This house is much more compact, but still not sure what I will do with it.I have the furniture from the house I sold...hoping it will fit!

  4. Boy are you gonna have yourself some FUN with that! I love it! It's so sweet! xoxo

  5. Man-- compared to Barbie's Dream Home, that is a MANSION!!! Enjoy!!

    BTW -- is the Hillcrest Junktique, or something like that, b/w Kavanaugh and Lee -- your favorite store? My younger daughter and her fiance found a fabulous table there a few weeks ago that they re-finished. It inspired a total makeover of their living room -- it's a "grown-up" place now!

  6. Yes...that is my favorite store...glad they found the table!

  7. I made my daughter a dollhouse when she was little. We moved and I hated that it might not survive the move so I sold it. I too have all the furniture from it and have just been waiting for a find like yours. I keep going back and forth between making one again and hoping to find a diamond in the rough. Good luck on yours...a real jewel!

  8. I love it! You have inspired me to write a post about a dollhouse. I can totally see why you bought it and you will make it absolutely lovely! Give us your remodeling pics and posts about the renovation.
