Look at what I found at a second-hand shop!! A dolls house, incomplete. Needing some TLC, this house measures about 34" high, 35" long, and with the porch, it adds andother 10". The rooms are about 15" deep.
I started renovation, shortly after I purchased it. I removed the roof trim, and the single dormer. Took away the trim around the porch-deck, too.
This is the other side. The roof opens up and there is an attic space. When I opened it at the store, it was full of stuff. I even found the people who occupied this house. Yippee!!!
There was quite a lot of plastic furniture. Mostly Fisher Price from the 1970's, I think. Then there also was some home-made wooden furniture. A total of about 30 pieces, including a pair of candle holders with candles made from toothpicks.
This lovely couple needed a make-over. The man is missing his feet, and one hand. Tough times for him in his past, maybe he is a war veteran? His lovely wife, wears a rather dated dress, and begged me to up date her look. Her heels and hands were still intact.
I did some research, and found out that these dolls are originally from Germany. Caco Miniatures, was the name of the company.
I gave them a completely new look, and even changed the mans hair color. Both of them redheads, just seemed a little weird to me.
Such a handsome couple! He has "feet", and she has a classic black outfit. I think he looks quite handsome with the new dye job, I nearly gave him a mustache, but held back. I didn't want to cover up that expressive face.
I started remodeling the house, and this sweet couple wait patiently on their little sofa, in the studio.
I will be posting my progress. Thanks for stopping in today! Smile On! Audrey
