AWWWW MONDAY - WEEKEND SEPT 5



Rosie shows the proportions ....the kitchen chair



Kettle and milk can



coal scuttle and tiny coal briquets



This is my doll house, bedroom, drawing room,  and kitchen, which I found in the attic when we moved, it is from 1947 and made by a carpenter who had 5 children and my mother in change knitted them a pullover each ! There was no money at that time in Germany and people swapped.

Now that we are not locked into our homes anymore and allowed to go out with or without mask, it depends on the country or continent, nothing happens. Yes you can discover nature or visit museums, but nothing else. All festivities had been cancelled !
To have  at least a bit fun we we visited Nicole who was happy to see us and we had a nice afternoon. I had also unpacked the last box from our move, with nothing special in it exept cats. Now at least I am almost done !

On Sunday I asked Myriam to unpack my dollhouse which I hadn't seen since I was 10 or 11 years old when I had seen it for the last time. I only was allowed to play with it on Christmas which meant the whole December and then it was put away for the next year.



I was a bit reluctant to open the suitcase because I thought I would be disappointed, it often happens that things you loved as a child seem much smaller then you thought ! But here I found exactly my dollhouse as I had it in mind !



First we put the kitchen up


then the bedroom, and drawing room



We had a lot of fun when we unpacked the suitcase and put the little furniture together !
There were also a stove and kitchen ustensils, cuttlery and even a sewing machine !
Myriam was delighted ! She never had seen such a doll house which on top was older then she was !

Now I have to find an exhibition place, because it's worthwhile to see, looks as if it belongs into a museum !

  1. I love your dollhouse furniture and you must put it on display. My favourite piece is the kitchen cabinet. Perhaps you could find a doll house to put the furniture in. You even have a broom and mop to clean the house with.

  2. Your doll house is great and should be shown to a wide audience.

  3. That wardrobe looks like the one my grandmother had. In the big size! Lovely doll's house. Do you have the house as well, or just the rooms?

  4. You've found your childhood treasure - the doll house. It definitely belongs to a museum.

    (On another matter. I've tried the new Blogger but it opens without an editor. Do you know what's wrong or where I'm wrong? Presently, I write my posts in the old Blogger).

  5. Mom says that doll house is amazing and you should be so thankful that you still have it. It is something to be treasured forever!

  6. This tiny furniture is spectacular, one of a kind, museum pieces. Now that your human-sized dollhouse is all fixed-up, you will have time to play with them perhaps. I can’t imagine as a child not playing with them year round, although they probably wouldn’t be in as perfect condition today.

  7. Awww on the kitty and your doll house. I always wanted one, but never had one. It's beautiful, Gattina. What a wonderful find.

  9. I have a dolls house too, but it's not in nearly as good condition as yours. My grandgirls play with it though.

  10. It is so pretty and everything is made with such careful detail. I am sure that a museum would love to have it. It's gorgeous.
