Spring cleaning inside the Rich dollhouse...

A bit of spring cleaning is taking place inside the Rich company dollhouse. Little sister is busy sweeping the upstairs floors.
 She has a stack of ironing to finish when she's done with the floors.

Our gentleman friend is busy dusting the furniture in the front entrance way.

I recently acquired new furniture for the dollhouse front entrance at my favorite antique store. The armoire, grandfather clock and table are very Art Deco looking.
Plaid sister is busy vacuuming the downstairs floors.  

The matron of the house is busy tending to mending from her red chair. Teeny tiny cleaning seems much more appealing than the spring cleaning that needs to happen inside my house right now.   In case you're wondering, many of my miniature cleaning supplies came from TheToyBox on Etsy.

I bet if you paid them a teeny tiny amount of money, they'd be happy to clean your house. However, it might take them the next year or so to complete it........LOL

Very cute!

Hugs,

Spring cleaning in the doll house seems like so much more fun! I'm working on doing our spring cleaning around the house this week-end. Such sweet little characters too! Happy day! xo Holly

So true, Kim! At least the gentleman friend is getting in on the act, too! And my, aren't they dressed fancy for spring cleaning:)

I totally agree :) - only I don't have the teeny tiny house. Even then I don't like cleaning my house. Especially with the two doggies tracking everything in from my back grove! :) Love your blog!

Send them my way to do some spring cleaning (rather dusty from the bathroom remodel). I love their funny expressions in the context of doing spring cleaning...none of them look very thrilled with the task!

Your family is growing and quite a clean bunch.

Is it really spring at your house, Kim? Perhaps as long as snow falls, you don't have to be concerned with spring cleaning.:-)

It is truly a busy time in the dollhouse!

I just love your little gentleman- such a cute addition to the house. And all your cleaning supplies! I love how you set up the dolls in different vignettes- I tend to set mine up, then rarely move them!

I guess even tiny little houses must be cleaned...Sigh...Is the cleaning ever done?

Love your mini post although there is maxi spring cleaning to do around here!

Hope you have a great week!

I'm confused, if they live in the Rich house why don't they have a maid!?!?

GardenofDaisies said...

Glad that at least one of them was smart enough to put on an apron to protect her clothes from dirt and dust and grime. ;-)
Please send the doll cleaning team to my house when they are through with their own. I need to spring clean, too.

Awesome dollhouse furniture! Even that vacuum cleaner is impressive. And so is the fact that they're getting so much more cleaning done in their house than I am in mine!

Cheryl G. said...

I just adore all your dollhouses!
The dolls! That furniture!
Love it!

I have a miniature collection of miniature dust pans (I just seem to find them....or they find me) and I always think how much more I enjoy them than the real thing! Your dolls look very industrious.
