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.
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.
