Charming Fun Finds...

Sometimes you run across vintage finds so charming, that your imagination wanders...
Recently I found this sweet old doll furniture.  It is dated 1926, and has the name "Doris" on the underside of the high chair.  It makes you wonder about little Doris and her dolls...

Yellow and gray, the paint has muted over the years...
and there is the remnant of an old drawer decoration...

The cute little dog was a past thrifting find...

as was the Redoute lily print.  I just gave the frame a wash of white paint!

Such a sweet little vignette.  
It's hard to imagine anyone parting with the well-loved old toys.
They found a home in our guest room...

Before I go...I'd like to thank you for all of your visits and wonderful comments...
I appreciate it SO much!

I am joining~

Thrifty Life Thursday

Until next time...


  1. Such sweet finds! Love the little dog! Hope you're having a good week!

  2. Oh, they are sweet. I wouldn't want to part with them.

  3. I have a vintage dog figurine collection. I love them, even though figurines are not as popular anymore!

  4. It looks like they have found the perfect home! Beautiful!

  5. Sweet finds, Linda! Oh, I'm in love with the yellow and gray furniture and your sweet dog figurine! They all look wonderful together in your guest room with the print hanging above. I love the cute little decal on the dresser. :)


  6. Linda- Isn't that just the dearest little set of children's pieces? It makes you wonder whatever happened to Doris and how many times she lifted her baby dolls in and out of that little chair. It is so sad that it didn't stay in her family.

    I have a dog collection from when I was a child. I think there are well over 100 dogs altogether. I really should display it one of these days. I love that dog you found. It is just adorable. xo Diana

  7. I love this vignette! What a welcoming sight in your guest room. I especially love the doll furniture. Have a great day! Hugs, Dianne

  8. Your new doll furniture is adorable. Love the coloring. And the dog. Of course, I love the dog!

  9. Linda, what sweet and wonderful finds, I would also have brought them home all- lucky you, and your guests - staying with such lovely pieces.

  10. You have made a delightful arrangement here. I am always charmed by doll furniture too. That is one of the loveliest vintage prints I have seen. The white frame adds a lot, I think, But that doggie really steals the show! So nice that you came by! I am recouping from runaway viral bronchitis. Knocked me flat!

  11. The little dog has captured my heart, so sweet as if he is looking out for all looks so lovely in your guest room. Sharon x

  13. These are so charming, Linda! How sweet to use in the guest room. Lucky guests! xo Karen

  14. Hi Linda--such great finds--I especially like the doll furniture with its chippy paint. Happy week-end!

  15. Awww, I often wonder about objects I've found too and who owned them previously. Makes for a wonderful display in your guest room for sure.

  16. You have a beautiful
    soul and I think these
    objects actually find YOU!
    So, so, sweet, Linda.
    (And the finds are nice,
    too : ))
