It sits in a little alcove in our dining room. I knew it would be perfect for my doll collection, which also started with a vintage doll that was given to me by my dear-mother-in-law. I also collect bears, which have also found their way into the cabinet.
This little canopy bed, was made by dear father-in-law. He had made a giant dollhouse for my mother-in-law, and had created a lot of the furniture himself, using the tiniest of tools. I cherish this little bed, and my mother-in-law also made the coverlet, canapy cover, and little pillows you see on the bed. She could tat, and crochet.
Here, are some of my Boyd's autumn bears. I love this little doll with the pouty face.
The angel pictured here, on the right, was also made by mother-in-law. Just beautiful trimmed in feathers. Oh, that Easter bunny needs to come out for Easter.
I also have started collecting a few vintage planters, and some Lefton figurines you see in this picture.
Many years ago, I used to go to doll shows. They had handmade doll artists there, who made the most gorgeous dolls. The one in blue, I was lucky to bring home from one of these shows. The others were gifts from the Franklin Mint I believe.
This is my china cabinet. I have a lot of different pretties in there, including tea cups, and things that dear mother-in-law had made. One day I plan on painting this one white. I plan on keeping the doll cabinet as is. Hubby won't let me paint it anyway. lol!
