Did I Ever Show You These?

I know it's been a while... Our whole family got the "crud" (and it was a BAD one- ugh!) for over a week, and then we were out of town for Spring Break...
But anyway, I was looking around and realized that I haven't ever shown you a couple of my favorite recent vintage finds!  So here are some fun pictures and eye candy for you!
 First is this adorable dolly bunk bed.  I got it at an antique fair a few months ago.  In fact, it was the same antique fair where I got this dolly bunk bed a couple years ago!  Hmmm, I wonder what I'll find next time I go?
 I've never seen this one before, but I am absolutely in love!  The grey color, the nursery rhyme decals,...
 ...the ladder!  I don't know that I've seen a vintage bunk bed with a ladder before!
 And while Avery isn't necessarily into dolls that much, she still has several, and this is a perfect place to store them!
Humpty Dumpty!
 The next vintage find is this wonderful Rich dollhouse! (You knew there had to be a dollhouse in there, didn't you?)  Oh, I really love this one!
 I found this one on Ebay for a very reasonable price.  It was a Buy It Now or Best Offer, and I saw it within a couple hours of being listed.  There was already one offer in on it, so I knew I had to act fast!  I bypassed making another offer for the fear that I wouldn't get it, and bought it for the Buy It Now price.
 It is in super condition, other than that flaw in the paint at the bottom of the door.
 I've only seen one other of this style, on the My Vintage Dollhouses site. 
Hers has a bluer paint on the roof, and as you can see here, mine once had blue paint, too.  This is under the chimney.  It's too bad it's so faded, but at least the gray looks uniform!
So far, I've only put a few furnishings inside, but I want to take my time on this one because I like it so much!
Have you found any wonderful vintage items recently?  The thrift stores here have dried up quite a bit for good finds, but there's always Ebay, right??!

Corey your dollhouse is darling and I am sure you will have it furnished in no time. The bunkbed is adorable too - the dollies look so comfy.

That bunk bed is just so sweet! I've never seen one that still has the ladder. Those decals are perfect. Of course I'm completely SMITTEN with your latest Rich dollhouse. I can't wait to see what you do with it. The graphics are just wonderful. I can't wait to share this post with my mom and sister.

Such sweet the little doll bed. Maybe it was handmade by some daddy for his little girl. Blessings

Oh my goodness, a superb dollhouse and a vintage bunk bed????
Soooo not them both! My dd has never been into dolls which greatly saddens me....I love them. I so hoped to help her decorate an awesome dollhouse so guess I'll have to wait and hope for grandchildren for this to happen.
