Chicks love Petite Princess

 Yes, I know it is not 1:6 scale but I have never been able to resist the charm of Petite Princess furniture.  Many of you probably know it was manufactured for a very short time in the 60's.  I'd have to double check but I believe it was only available for a year.  Despite it lovely detail it was considered a bit overpriced.  As a result, sales were sluggish and it was pulled from the market.

What's a chick to choose?

I started collecting a few pieces about three years ago mostly from EBay.   Aside from decking out my daughter's dollhouse with a few pieces the others have been confined to the attic abyss of Rubbermaid containers.
So Hollywood

It seemed like such a shame to not display the pieces.  So I converted a plate rack my father had constructed to a Petite Princess curio. The backs of each cubby have been lined with scrapbook paper to mimic wallpaper.  I had a little fun with a few chicks left over from my Easter decor.  Oh yeah, and who wouldn't want a T-Rex in their garden tub?  Anyway, it is a conversation piece and a lot of fun.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'd love to hear your Petite Princess comments.
She should be in an old movie.

I think he needs a larger towel!
