~ Vintage metal playhouse... the Mid Century Modern years...

Every once in awhile I will come across a vintage metal playhouse... that is utterly amazing. This is one of those houses. Currently for sale on the Dallas Craigslist...


What a fantastic example of the Mid Century Modern home. Even down to its red door. This is a great example of that time period. 


Not only does it have a stunning front exterior. It has the perfect back patio! Look at that red brick patio with the fish pond. 


And to add to all of the beauty of the exterior. The interior is just as amazing! It has all of its furniture too! 


Look at the use of all the bold colors. The different style floors. And another view of that red front door! 


Plus the bathroom has blue and tan tile style walls. With that vintage fancy corner tub.



So if you are looking to add one to your vintage toy collection. This is a outstanding one to have!

I always wanted a playhouse when I was little, sadly Santa brought me a barn instead, I never did get one. What a beauty this one is!

My mother had this exact dollhouse and furniture! It's from the 50's. Sadly hers burned in a storage building fire in 1995.

I finally put the one I had as a child on a shelf by the back door so that I could enjoy it every day. Unfortunately now I want to buy more houses and start a whole neighborhood!

That's amazing! I would love having one of these--heck, I'd move in myself!

I recently thrifted a similar toy, it's called the "Lazy Days" barn, it's a metal litho toy from the 1950s.

They don't make 'em like they used too, huh?

Cheers,
Heather
