Dollhouse Furniture

MWSnap 837a

It is time for Rednesaday again and I just love this new graphic that Sue has come up with! :)

Today I am going to share a couple of my favorite red items….first is my sweet little Strawberry Days peg doll that Elizabeth at Creative Breathing made me!

Isn’t she just the cutest little doll? The chair tht is next to here is a vintage Renwal Dollhouse Furniture Co. It was fromt he late 1950’s early 1960’s I believe….I am buying pieces one a a time to go in my dollhouse….which is another post!

This is my group so far…..The chair might be from a different scale, as there was 1” and 1/2” dollhouse furniture…. but I love the blue and the red…and that sweet little sewing machine????

Look at the detail!!! The drawers open, the machine goes down and there is a cover, just like a real machine! The treadle even moves…

I can’t wait to get these items in a little house. I actaully have a chance to get a handmade Victorian Mansion….but I am keeping quiet about it right now, so I don’t blow the deal! :)

And of course, who could for get Scottie????? Isn’t he just the perfect pooch?

I recently won a baby, a playpen and another rocker in an EBay auction….they are also all of the red/yellow colors. Renwal came out with multiples color combos, but of course this fits me to a “T” !

Thanks for stopping by and if you click on the first photo you will go to Sue’s blog so you can enjoy all of the other red goodies!

Love the renwal furniture. That sewing cabinet is adorable. I have a few pieces and have made shadow boxes with them. Lots of fun. The peg doll that E. made is too cute!

Nan said...

Sandy I have that sewing machine from my childhood, mine is opposite on coloring with the blue drawers. It's in good shape too for being played with so much over the years.
I love that Renewal old furniture.It's so funny how you and I like to exact same things. I will have to take a photo of my little machine and post it for you. Nan

I love those mini's-- such great pieces! That rocker is so adorable, and the sewing machine is fabulous!!
My last post was about my dollhouse-- just suffered a "mini earthquake" of sorts! My little house is still a work in progress, but I have a lot of fun with it!

vivian said...

cant wait to see your doll house some time when you get it all together! I have two doll houses, nothing fancy, just cute. I drag them out of storage every once in a while to play for a while, then put them back away. heres a link to the flickr set page where you can have a peek at them if you want! http://www.flickr.com/photos/vneroni/sets/72157604351516250/

Good Morning Sandi Sweetie...
What a beautiful share today. I love the little sewing machine, and the fact that so many pieces actually move on it. They don't make things like the used to. The little rocker is so precious. I love the red too. Now who would have guessed that you would like red/blue and yellow. Certainly not me.

Love your dolly. What a beautiful job your friend did making her. She fits right in with everything else. I love it. Can't wait to see your doll house, and keep us posted on the Victorian. Who said we couldn't grow up and play with doll houses?

Have a beautiful day sweet friend. Love ya girl. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Creative Breathing said...

Sandy, These are just cute as can be! I will definitely look for pieces for you the next time I visit my antique mall. I had never heard of such a thing, and they are the perfect color for you! I will post your garland to you on Friday, It's not in your colors I realize after creating it, but sometimes the mix of colors is a nice accent to your color pallet. Have a fun week! E

Brenda@Cozy Little House said...

Oh, you know I love that treadle sewing machine! And all the red to boot. I keep thinking about dollhouses. And I might have to start looking for one. I see all these pretty miniatures for them and just swoon!
Brenda

Shelley Germann said...

Very cute! I like the theme you have going with the reds, yellows and blues. I'll have to keep my eye for these! I actually think I've seen a piece or two at estate auctions before.

Dandelion Acre said...

I just love the dollhouse furniture especially the sewing machine. My daughters and I have a dollhouse on our wishlist for future projects.

SueLovesCherries said...

Cute pieces, Sandy! I have some, but they're not as colorful as yours. I keep them in a vintage tin Marx(?) dollhouse.

NanE said...

Sandy, I almost fell off my chair when I got to the picture of the sewing machine! You see, I just revamped a vintage sewing table and it looks almost identical to your little doll sized one. You can check it out here:

Thanks for sharing, Nan

Linda Hahn said...

Love the colorful furniture and adorable little doll that your friend made. I remember having that exact same sewing machine and rocking chair when I was a little girl!! Where did you get it? I would love to get one to show my daughter and eventually give to her new baby girl someday. My email is infomom26@verizon.net

Angela said...

Those are the cutest pieces of doll house furniture I've ever seen!! very Mary Engelbreit-ish, don't you think?

Tracy Suzanne said...

Oh' I just love miniature doll houses. The furniture brings back such wonderful memories of my own doll house. You know the kind from the 1960's made of tin or some such metal with that great plastic furniture. Not nearly as elaborate as the wooden scale models but still wonderful memories. And those pieces you have are fabulous. I have never seen the sewing machine before. I love it. And I love E's goodies to you too.

Thanks for your visit.

Love you, Tracy :)

I hope you get your dollhouse...lots of fun. Right now I am "flipping" a Victorian dollhouse my friend gave me when she was clearing out her basement. I almost didn't take it as I have a dollhouse and no more room, but she built it herself from a kit and I knew she was gonna give it to her church rummage sale. It was a 1970s look, browns, tans with dull "wallpaper" interiors. I just finished peeling off the old wallpapers and painting the exterior a pretty aqua with white gingerbread trim. I am lovin' it! I have decided it will be called "The Mermaid Seaside Inn" - a New England beachy feel with seaglass colors & shabby chic like furniture...I gotta find some pretty scrapbook paper to do the walls now.
I always wanted a doll house as a kid and never got one until I bought my own when I was in my 40s! I think it is more fun doing the make-over house 'tho...my imagination has room to play. :)
