I acquired some new dollhouse people recently. Some are Erna Meyer (three are new from eBay), and some might be Erna Meyer. Two of them are the same construction, but their origin is unknown because I got them at flea markets. I haven't decided where they are going to live yet, or what families they belong to. Right now they are visiting at Mindolton Manor.
The little girl in red came from an eBay store and is brand new. I love her red overalls and hands in pockets attitude. She looks like she considers things carefully before she decides what mischief she will get into.
Her slightly larger friend in the blue overalls is a little dirty. Her hair is messy and her shoes are a little like hospital slippers - made of cloth. I assume she is from a previous decade, but her origin is unknown. I got her at a flea market in a bunch of other dolls and clothes. To me she looks like an impetuous tomboy who leaps before she looks. It's lucky her friend is a little more reserved. They make a good team. I don't think they are sisters - just buddies
Another Flea Market find is this lovely lady. I think she was meant to represent the Czech Republic or the Ukraine, but I took off her apron and flowered shaw, then turned her collar around and fastened it with the brooch from her shawl. I tightened up the red sash at her waist and now she looks like a Victorian lady. I saved her apron and shawl in case I want to change her back.
Here is the group altogether. I am very pleased with my new people. I need to get working on my houses so I can find them all homes. But winter is coming and I know what I will be doing on those long cold evenings.
