  1. I had that dollhouse too! I loved it so much. I still have two of the little dolls. After seeing this picture, I can't believe I can remember that wallpaper. The little table with the fold-down top and the sofa and footstool - so sweet! I wonder what happened to it. I think I'll look for it the next time I go back home.

  2. Really, the same one? That's funny. I can post other pictures of the kitchen and bedroom. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I appreciate it.

  3. Thanks for the link in the post, and in your blogroll!


  4. Oh my, those dolls do look familiar. They had big heads and really skinny arms and legs, right? What where they called....
