what katie's dad found

We have just returned home - we've been visiting my family in Bedfordshire for the past few days.  On Sunday, I was eager to get myself to a car boot sale, and my parents decided to come along too - they love a bargain as much, if not more than me.  Myself and Steve lost my parents in the first row of stalls, and I said that I bet my Dad would have brought something completely random!  This 1960's doll house bypassed my beady eye and was snapped up by my Dad for £1.  Little did my Dad know, but I have wanted one of these for a few months now.  I have seen a few at previous car boots for between £15 - £20, and logic has played its part - I have no room and no children and am definitely not in a position to buy things that are unnecessary!  But £1?  How could you say no?  It's just amazing.  My Dad, being so lovely, said that I could have it, so the doll house is now mine :)
(although currently in storage in their shed...)


I also found myself a few vintage dresses at the same car boot sale, some need a little altering, but I will be sharing those with you very soon!

  5. How lovely! Your dad has a good eye. I love the block colours and those little trees. It reminds me of something I had when I was a child, made by my uncle.
