Leather Boot Turned Dollhouse Updated Pictures

While creating this dollhouse I came up with a more child friendly version to  "There was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe" because it just had to be done!
There was a lady who lived in a shoe
She had 2 children so there was lots to do,
She cooked and she cleaned and made sure they were fed
At night she hugged them both soundly
 before she tucked them in bed!



 To see how I made this Boot Dollhouse click here
the children's room with beds made of twigs
mama's room. I made the bed, ladder and vanity table and the
tiny
picture of my Grandmother was taken in 1917

I made the stove and the counters. The fridge is a plastic piece from Marx I believe
that is a little Tootsie Toy chair sitting on the rug. It's metal and from the 1920's.
