Is it Christmas yet????

Uh oh. I don't have this modern Strombecker... it is for sale on ebay right now. I really don't want to give you the number... There are many more picture of it on ebay. (FYI,  I am not going after it though it is a gem. It is #251186800931 buy it now for $535.00 or best offer) Seasoned greetings, today.

In McKendry's History of dollhouses she points out the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright on the manufacturing of dollhouses. Go here for more

After these came the Tomy Modern Home. As I said, Is it Christmas yet?By the way I saw the Blick House on German ebay and did not buy it. We really are in a recession, at least I am. 

                             Look at that Cat Picture!

                           OH! The "His" and "Hers" Towels!
                                       Hmmm! I have this table and chairs...
                                          Those drapes are "JUST DIVINE!"

                              I am grateful for what I have.... 
                                       My Little-ist  Assistant

  Would say HAPPY THANKSGIVING! but he can't talk so I'll say         
   it for him. CM

An American Tradition: Thanksgiving

For the background I used a painting by one of my ancestors who painted the family home in Ohio. I am from people from France through England on one side and Croatia on the other. 

We have so much to be grateful for here in America this year. Let us harken back to the first Immigrants who gave thanks for their survival in this new land and how they came together to share with those in need as we must do now, from the Middle East to the Jersey Shore. And to all the peoples since who found a better life here under Democracy. Let the people speak, and their voice shall be heard.

And here's to all the little girls of America reclaiming the TEA Party which is rightfully theirs and no one elses!

Cheers from our house to yours, Me and my Little Assistant

They say "We like to think our dollhouse is pretty similar to the Republic News Building by S.O.M.
and the Irwin Union Bank and Trust by Eero Saarineen,both of which are in Columbus. But that's just what we like to think".

   and there are people furniture and a grass mat.
