(Sung to the tune of Taylor Swift's "Blank Space")
Got a long list of old dollhouses,
Hubby says that I'm insane.
I've got no more blank space, baby.
So I hang my head in shame...
So, yeah, here's another one. Although I've got other dollhouses that I haven't shown you yet, none compare to this huge monster of a house that I picked up this weekend!
It had been up on Ebay for several weeks, and I'd been eyeing it. I'm sort of obsessed with larger scale dollhouse furniture lately, and this house is larger scale, obviously. It was "pick up only" in Orlando, and we had a trip planned there for the weekend. I told myself that if it was still available, I'd buy it. Well, guess what? It was still available!
It was made in 1973 for a little girl's 1st birthday. Coincidentally, my first birthday was in 1973 as well, so I took that as a sort of sign- ha ha!
As you can see, it is pretty unfinished, so I'm looking forward to painting and decorating it. In fact, I've already ordered some vintage wallpaper for some of the rooms!
I have no idea where I'm going to put it. Although it fits on this sofa table, I don't think Hubby is going to let it stay here, as it blocks the view of the TV from the kitchen (not acceptable!!). So we will see. I am truly lucky to have a husband who allows this kind of insanity from me, and rarely does more than roll his eyes when I tell him I found a new dollhouse! Very lucky indeed!
I will keep you updated on it's progress!
(As you can see, Otis acted as house inspector once we brought it home. His inspection report stated, "Although the house is in minor disrepair, it has very good bones, so I give it two paws up!")
