Look What Found Me

A Tin Dollhouse

A Peek Inside

Home Tour

Scored from Feathered Nest in OKC, OK

Prettiest Woodland Vintage Dress EVER!

Mustard and Olive Vintage Dress
I found the vintage tin doll house, drum lamp shade frame, and sweet little dress at the Feathered Nest in Oklahoma City. My mom took me because she knew I'd love it there and although it's a good mix of handmade, items from Market, and vintage, it was definitely worth the trip. I couldn't believe how inexpensive all three of these items were.

Had to share my excitement. Hope they'll fit in the car on the way home.
xoxo,
Rachel

That dress, I can't believe it even exists. In fact I refuse, just to make myself feel better for not being the one to find it. I'm going to pretend that it's a new dress made from an Oliver + S pattern from a Japanese import fabric, trying to pass itself off as vintage.

Also: the dollhouse! Oooooo. There is (was?) one of the exact same at the big flea market in my hometown, last time I went. But it was too expensive, like everything else there. $30-60 probably? Or is that reasonable?

Oh, wonderful dress and dollhouse! I recently found a tin dollhouse out thrifting for only $3, but it's not nearly as perfectly colored as this one!

That doll house is identical to the one my mom had when she was little! In fact she just rescued it from my grandpa's farm in fear that he'd chuck it! Too cute!

I had the SAME tin dollhouse as a kid. I don't know where my mom found it (I was an 80s child) or what happened to it... We used to turn is on it's side so our Barbies would fit in it!
