While I'm at it...

I may as well post the rest of the photos. First, in the living/dining rooms I currently have the beach cottage, the back porch, the half scale Colonial and the log cabin. There are photos of all of the those somewhere on the blog page.This is Harriet's Kitchen. It's the last of the rooms in my craft room. Harriet has the grandchildren over for a visit.
This wedding gazebo was made in a bird feeder. It hangs from a hook over the window in my bedroom.
This is a plastic canvas house made for me by my favorite of hubby's aunts. At the time my kids' rooms were blue, yellow and pink. The colors she used downstairs are the colors we had in the main living areas then, too. This one sits on the floor in my bedroom as it is child friendly if young ones come over to see the dollhouses.
These two tin lithographed houses have the same interior. The one on the left was my mother's when she was a child. She still had a lot of the original furniture. I added some as well. Her version has an opening front door. I thought her house had been thrown away during a move so hubby bought me the one on the right for an anniversary gift. Mine doesn't have an opening front door. The exteriors are painted differently, too. These are Playsteel houses made by the National Can Company in the 1940s. These houses are on a shelf in my bedroom.

I'd love to see more pictures of the tin houses. They look similar to my first dollhouse. I should probably dig the old thing out of my Mother's basement and see what it looks like now... :)

I will see if I can get some good photos and post them. :-)
