A Few Old Friends, Part 3

Here are some of my favorites from my childhood dollhouse--the bedroom furniture. These toys were so well loved, which explains why there are a couple of drawers missing. I played with the dollhouse and its furniture until it just about fell apart. Then my sister played with it just as much as I did.

My parents made a dresser and an armoire--my dad doing the mini-carpentry, and my mom doing all the finishing and decoration.

As I had explained in the last post, the draw pulls were made from sewing pins, and I love that my parents took the time to put in nice shelves into the armoire.

 But the piece that really stuck with me was the bed and the crib. My mom even sewed a little mattress to go on the bed, using scraps from her fabric stash.

More on some of the accessories, like the rug pictured above, in the next post!
