Little Suzy Homemaker News

Well, first I put it in the dining area of the kitchen.

I had a good spot for it but it just didn’t look right.

And then hubby came along and put a raven in the oven.

But still that didn’t seem quite right. lol

So we both walked into the ‘doll room’ and hubby saw the perfect spot.

(Silvi 31 inches, Kida and Julika both 33 inches tall)

I put some of my favorite Himstedt dolls around it. I think the little redhead, Silvi is just the perfect size for it.

They still don’t have any pots and pans but they are just enjoying not having to cook! heehee! And they have salt and pepper in case they get something ‘to go’! 

I’m joining the Vintage Inspiration Link party HERE,

Debby Ray said...

Oh my goodness, Diane...I have never seen your doll room before...I see you have more than just a few! The oven looks perfect in there. Just don't be letting those little girls fight over who's going to do the cooking!

podso said...

Aw, love your dollie room! And the stove looks perfect where you have it. I wonder what they are cooking (up)?

Maggie Ann said...

Your doll collection is impressive! the stove is so cute, it kind of looks like it could really cook. What if those dolls came to life and tried to make something...what a mess you would wake up to. I guess I'm thinking of the Raggedy Ann story books. Remember how the toys came to life at night? =) Hope you day is blessed and happy! with a smile.... Maggie Ann

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I remember those! Little Suzy Homemaker, every girl wanted one! You have quite a doll collection, wow!!

Laurie M said...

oh I wish i had known you a few years back, the most perfect set of pots and pans I saw at the thrift store, they were old and most likely made for that kind of kiddy stove, I will keep my eyes on the look out for you,

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

Diane, do you have any grand daughters?

cucki said...

Hi Diane, the oven does look cute in the doll room! You are just too funny sometimes. Wow what a great collection you have of dolls! Wishing you a nice afternoon and week.
Julie xoxo

Kathy said...

I think the raven is perfect for Halloween! ;) Your dolls are just the right size for such a cute little stove. That's the perfect place for it.

Doreen@househoneys said...

This brought back memories. When I was little my sister and I basically took over the basement with our play kitchen. I think we had this stove, or one almost just like it.

Your hubby is a genius ;).

LBP said...

I had that very stove! I loved that thing, my mama hated it! I love your doll room and I want to come and play dolls with you. I will bring my 36" Lorrie Walker.

It's hilarious your DH put a raven in it!

xoxo

Linda

Catherine Holman said...

It's perfect for your dolls and I love the color!

Donna said...

That's a good spot for it!

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

I love it and the raven hubby added. I wish I had something like this when I was a wee one. Thanks for sharing at Vintage Inspiration Party Diane.

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Hi Diane, I love your doll room and your darling stove looks perfect in there next to your wonderful dolls. They are the perfect size. You have such a wonderful collection.

Happy Fall and October tomorrow.
Hugs and Blessings

Diane C said...

Love your blog. Wow ...you've got some lovely Himstedt dolls. They're so beautiful. I have some international Himstedts from 2005 collection that I'll be parting with when we move. I'll be sad to see them go. Keep up the lovely blog!

Pamela Gordon said...

I love your vintage stove! How cute it is and I think it belongs with your sweet dolls in their room.

Liz Hockamier said...

Oh my gosh! How cute and they are the perfect size. Maybe you can train them to cook.... just a thought. :)

Carla from The River said...

Perfect...I do love it. I love the color as well.

Musings from Kim K. said...

I'll be right over to play!! So sweet.

Sweet Bear Creek Whims said...

Wow look at your doll room and all the gorgeous dolls!! I think your dolls look a bit dismayed.... they are worried they will now have to cook! LOL They are hoping you will not be bringing the pots and pans in next. Love that stove too!

Debby said...

Ok, I am jealous of that stove. I don't ever use that word but it is way too cute.
I was feeling bad about buying another one of Pat's dolls last night while I was trying to get sleepy. Insomnia stinks. But if my husband says anything, I will show him your doll room. It looks like a museum. I feel much better now, hah.
It's been a rough week here in my neck of the woods.
Thanks for making me smile.

doodles n daydreams said...

Wow, what a wonderful collection, and they sure look happy with the new purchase.

Sam I Am...... said...

Love the oven but I'd be "skeered" to go in that room at night! LOL!

My Little Home and Garden said...

Someone loves dolls and their accessories, I see! What a fun room you have.

pattisjarrett said...

What pretty babies you have! The oven looks perfect for them, I think those girls are excited about it. Love your husband's sense of humor with the raven. I belonged to a doll club years ago, fond memories.

Simply Shelley said...

Well, of course I want to come play in your doll room. As a matter of fact, would you like to hire me as your Nanny? I could catch a bus and start right away.....hehe
If you stop by my blog, you'll see I have a brand new wee one. SHE IS A LIVING DOLL. blessings friend

Vee said...

Who wouldn't?! But it's getting kinda crowded in here with all of us. LOL! I think I had forgotten how large the toy was...my friend had one, but I had a wood one that my grandfather made for me, along with a sink and a cupboard.

Nancy Reinke said...

I was having a little bit of a "Stepford Wives" moment there, Diane. LOL Cute post! ~ Nancy

Carol Z said...

So sweet. I know my stuffed animal friends would be happy visiting the Doll Room and so would I. Wishes for a great Thursday!

Patty Antle said...

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

I'll cook...YOU do the dishes ha ha

SympleTymes Cloth Art By Sherrie Nordgren said...

oh I LOVE your doll room! I'd like to come and play!

Red Rose Alley said...

Diane,
You have a doll room! It looks so sweet, and I think I would just look all around at all the precious dolls you have. How dear that your husband helps you to decide where things go. It reminds me of me always asking husband questions about the home and what looks best. It's nice to have another opinion when we are uncertain about things.

love,
~Sheri

Oh my - I'd love to come along and play - everything is so darling!!!!
