Recent Acquisitions

I have picked up a few items at local estate sales.  I asked the lady at this particular sale if they had any antique dollhouse furniture or miniatures and she said "no"  
This bed was advertised as a 'stand'

I came across this Chinese canopy bed, an Asian ornament, a couple of small copper boxes and a miniature Websters Dictionary.

The bed may be homemade? - it is made from oak, stained dark and if you look closely, you can see gold accent paint.  It kind of reminds me of the accent paint on TynieToy.  I don't think that it is.

The copper boxes have kind of an alligator type texture.  I think they will end up in my Copper Shop room box ( our club project this year)

This Webster's Dictionary is 800 pages and has 18,000 words (according to the cover)

at another recent sale, I came across this miniature Bible

It is leather bound and came in this wood holder

The inside cover shows it is not that old (1998) and printed in Peru.

I have been collecting Asian items for a few years now and the new canopy bed works nice with the collection. I haven't decided if I want to do a room box, a bedroom, or perhaps an Asian shop? 


  1. Ooohhh a little Asian shop would be so much fun! And you wouldn't have to worry about acquiring any particular piece.

  2. Hi, Troy - I think it's a great idea to display those beautiful copper boxes in your Copper Shop. The dictionary is amazing and looks very readable. I love your Asian canopy bed; what a unique piece. I think you have enough Asian items to furnish an Asian Shop - that would be an interesting project.

  3. Hi Troy, I love the canopy bed - what a treasure to find and it sits so beautifully alongside the rest of the Asian collection. I agree that a shop would be a lot of fun, and you can just keep adding as you find more gems.
    The dictionary is amazing and I find it hard to even try get my head around fitting 800 pages into such a tiny book.

  4. La cama con dosel es preciosa,me encanta!!!! Que cantidad de objetos de temática asiática! tanto una habitación,como una tienda será fantástico!

  5. Pretty projects and great idea,Thank you for the tutorial and for sharing !
