$5 Tynietoy Chair

We were in Oklahoma City over the 3 day weekend,  We hit the zoo for the mrs and the mall for the kids and an antique mall for me!  I came across a single Tynietoy chair with a painted brown seat.  I had not seen brown before.  The leg was a little "chewed on" but in pretty good shape for five bucks.  Got to the register and even better, it was 25% off.  So its my cheapest Tynietoy find yet.

A Great Estate Sale Find

Front View

I happened upon an antique dollhouse today at an estate sale.  The house is made from large pieces of wood and nailed together.  The craftsmanship is great.  It measures about 30" high and each of the rooms are about 12" X 12" X12"

Chimney View

The paint needs some touch-up around the wood chimney and the windows have pieces of glass that are held in with tiny nails.  I may put some sort of wood grid over them

Rear View
 The back of the house is just plain- yet finished off nicely.  The roof and chimney paint have a nice crackled finish.

Second Floor

I love the linoleum floors.  I am going to have to do some research and figure out how old it actually is.  I am guessing from the 30's or 40's.
