I am showing Marx dollhouses next month on my collection blog:
Is Marx Modern? What do you think? Mid century is so hip right now but what is this considered?
Marx houses in Martha Stewart Living Magazine, this month's issue in an article about collecting. Trendy. Tin litho, and steel houses are just becoming old enough to appear more interesting than junky.
Of course, what I consider an antique, and what my elder assistant (26) considers antique is very different.
It also amuses me when my 4yr old granddaughter walks up to my MH1 and points to all the rement items familiar to her... "Oh a bottle of water.. oh, a celly ( baby talk for cell phone), oh controlls... (tv remote) ".
One day she asked me what the phone jack on the wall was for in my own house. I found myself saying, "Well, in the olden days phones came out of the wall on cords..." She looked at me blankly.
The more things change, the more different they are... to me. C
