When Chris and I went away for our 20th wedding anniversary, we hit several antique stores. Yes. I realize that I'm lucky that my husband doesn't mind exploring antique stores with me. Hidden on the floor, under a large table, was a rather large bag of 1930s Strombecker dollhouse furniture.
I've had this empty wooden dollhouse in my craft room just waiting to be filled.
With it's green/red graphics, this dollhouse frequently makes an appearance at Christmas on my sunroom shelf.
I decided over the weekend to remove the roof and give the interior a clean-up and light coat of new paint.
The roof also got a fresh coat of stain.
I'm currently on the hunt for the missing Strombecker bathroom pieces, as well as a few lamps and a floor radio. I figure its only fair that I have my own wooden dollhouse after giving both Josie and Emma several dollhouses of their own. Heck, I could have worse addictions than dollhouse furniture!! For more pictures of the girls dollhouse collections, see this album. I promise to share more pictures as the rest of my special house comes together.
Lee - Thank you for that wonderful box of dollhouse accessories. They will be coming in handy! Happy playing, friends!
