Let’s Talk Vintage #112: PA Dutch Dollhouse Furniture and a Customer Reveal! 3


Welcome to Let’s Talk Vintage!


Each week I share with you something that has to do with vintage. 

Other bloggers are invited to link up here to share what they have.

(If you don’t have a blog, we hope you’ll enjoy clicking on the

links of the other posts… they are lots of fun!)

Sometimes I share my latest finds, vintage furniture

that we are giving a new life to, etc.


Today I’m sharing a photo that a customer sent

after the vintage items arrived from my shop.

How charming!



She purchased a baby cradle in the vintage Pennsylvania Dutch style.


And this beautiful blanket chest.

I just love her wallpaper and baby in the cradle!

The furniture was made by the Garden Spot China Co. out of Lancaster, PA.


I still have other pieces like this rocking chair


and this corner cupboard


and this long bench, which by the way, is my favorite piece.

Thanks so much for checking out some of the vintage

stuff I’ve had the pleasure of selling. And seeing a customer

use it as it was planned makes it all worthwhile!


And before you go, here is my daughter in The Nutcracker

from this past weekend. Here she is getting rosy

red cheeks by some of the other backstage moms.


 A time honored tradition…

it was first performed Christmas 1892 in Russia.

Such beautiful music, costumes and dancing, done by our girls

and boys as well as a Ukrainian ballet company.

We had a blast!


And this is the gift basket I donated to help

benefit a local pediatric center.

I enjoy making them!


Now here are the features from

the link up last week. Just over over the name

of the blog and it will highlight and give a link so you

can hop over to the other blog. Be sure to come back here for

more links!


Melissa of Melissa’s Antiques shared her booth filled to

the brim with vintage Christmas goodies.
Oh how I’d love to shop there!


And Florence of  Vintage Southern Picks, showed us

her vintage Christmas decorations, like this cast iron Santa.

This is the kind of  stuff I thrive on…

seeing what y’all collect and how you use them

for the holidays. (Even when you’re feeling Bah-Humbug!)


Christina from Organic Garden Dreams

shared her special tea for two table

display and the vintage items  that she used.

    Jill, what a wonderful tradition to be able to celebrate Nutcracker with your daughter. I have come full circle on Nutcracker performances, from having my children in them since they were small, to teens, and adults (my oldest went from being a marshmallow to various solos to the ultimate Clara, and is now an adult in the party scene!). My husband & I were even in one series of performances as adults, with both my girls onstage in solos several years ago. It truly is a magical time, although quite hectic too.
    Thank you for the memories, the party and inspiration shared. Doesn’t Melissa’s booth space look terrific for the Christmas season?!
