jessi, that is sweet. I was going to tell you that it is the same as the one I had when I was little, but I dont remember the marching soldiers.. Mine must have been different. Wish I had it now! you'll have fun finding furniture and setting it up. I have a few doll houses.. theres a "set" in my flickr if you want to see them!

Congrats on finally getting a lovely vintage dollhouse. Ebay is great for finding dollhouse furniture and at such a deal too! You'll have to show us when it is filled up! :)

Bass Pro Shop? I can't believe it! What an unlikely place to have that adorable doll house. It reminds me of the one I had when I was a little girl. What is this one made out of? Mine was metal. Have fun filling it up!

Dianne said...

What a great find! What's funny is I saw the same kind as a kid at the auction and we didn't win it or something-but it was definitely metal. As a grownup, I built my own! That's one thing I haven't shared on my blog-thanks for the inspiration.

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

Oh my gosh, Jessi, I HAD that one as a child! Wish I could find another one!!! I'm so glad this one found such a GREAT home with you! You'll have a blast fixing it up!

BTW, where is the baby rattle planter you showed in a previous post? I love it but didn't see it in your Etsy!

Big TX Hugs,

Jennifer Conway said...

Great score! I also scored the exact same metal house at a garage sale last summer - except the outside of mine is 1/2 brick 1/2 stone, and the chimney has flowering vines going up it. Can't wait to see you decorate yours - keep us all updated!!

Ele at abitofpinkheaven said...

It IS the same as the one I had when I was little. I remember those soldiers. I had little a little plastic crib, and playpen, and more! I wish I still had it!

Joy at Cupids Charm said...

Hi Sweet Jessi! Add me to the growing list....that was my doll house too....EXACTLY! All that is missing is the little pink plastic furniture that I spent endless hours arranging and re-arranging. I know that this is where I developed my love for interior design and decorating from. I swear, if that little prize was in my house, I'd be playing with it right now! Enjoy your score - and thanks for the wonderful memories you brought back tonight for me ~ xoxo Joy

Suzy said...

What a great house, I used to have one like that. It gave me hours of fun. I now collect barns of that same era for my mother who lives on a farm, You can find alot of great items on ebay for it!
Keep it Sweet,
Suzy

nataliehansen said...

Oh My Jessi! That is sooooo cute! My friend across the street had a similar one....not from the fifties though, more like the 70's! I remember that it was white with green shutters! She was bored with it, but I always wanted to play with it when I went over there.

Jessi,
This was my doll house when I was just eight years old. The year was 1956, and all the furniture was made out of plastic. I loved it. It still looks lovely. I loved growing up in the fifties.

Have fun decorating this little house, and thanks for the walk down Memory Lane.

I can jus tpicture you sweet talking the manager at Bass Pro. I can't believe he didn't just hand it right over to you!

Kara Ward said...

Jessi,
This is to die for! It is amazing. Terrific find. I can't wait to see what you do with it. I use my doll house to hold favorite books and memoribilia. Amazing-Kara

KarenHarveyCox said...

Jessi,
I asked my mom about the doll house. She said that in 1956 that doll house along with beautiful toys that had won awards were featured on a merry-go-round in FAO Schwartz window in New York City. We had gone into Manhattan at Christmas and of course we had to look into all the windows.

I thought you might like the story to go along with your doll house.

Hi Jessi: My name is Carrie. I am Diane's sister from Saturday Finds! Diane pointed me in the direction of your blog...and I just love it. Diane and I had a doll house just like the one you just got! What memories. I have been following your love of all things Barbie too. I will never forget my first bubble haired striped swimsuit Barbie. I was recently in California visiting my sister and came across a large black and white Barbie Retro poster at a garage sale! I thought of you, but it was too large to ship) lol

I am hosting a giveaway and hope you might take a peek at my blog.

Nice to meet you.
Stay Cozy, carrie
