Treasure Chest Thursday: Doll House Set

This shoebox full of old dollhouse pieces has been sitting in one of our old trunks, not seeing the light of day for years now.   We’ve carried it around from place to place as we’ve moved across the country.

I thought I’d pull it out and take some pictures of these family heirlooms.  I sent pictures to Andy’s mom, so I could get the history on where these came from.

They were actually her toys.  The house that went along with this furniture was stored in the attic and a squirrel munched on it. And the little plastic dolls {which had rubber bands in the joints} broke.  But the wooden furniture is still in great shape!

Since they were in the same box, I thought that maybe these figurines went with the dollhouse furniture, but they didn’t.  My husband’s great-great grandma and great-grandfather gave them to his mom.  They were from their childhood.  I’m not sure how old that makes them, but they’re in wonderful shape.  Aren’t they cute?

And so colorful!

Here you can see some of the furniture in more detail.  The vanities even have little mirrors on them.Do you have any old toys from your childhood?
