Mad Men have dollhouses

Did you watch tonight's episode of "Mad Men"? A Marx tin doll house was in a scene! 
It was the classic colonial model, symbol of the perfect American  home. This is mine I will be blogging about Marx when I get to the 50's in a few months. You can read about it on http://www.mckendry.net/DOLLHOUSES/1890s.htm .


You know Barbie is coming out with a Mad Men set of Don, Betty, Roger and Joan, the red headed bombshell,
I hope they make accessories. C
P.S. I don't want to ruin the plot if you haven't seen the latest episode... BUT I bet we'll be seeing it again... Dollhouse alert!
Another funny thing is people actually CALLED me to tell me ( so I guess I am the local "dollhouse crazy lady" after all) and my daughter came running up and showed me it by pointing out the one I had. Now she respects it!!!!
Speaking of crazy dollhouse ladies.... this gives me the perfect opportunity

  to show you a gift Shale brought me. I had claimed I wasn't a "crazy doll lady with 20 cats, in fact I don't even have one". So Shale brought me a cat. It is white and it chose the Biss house to live in where Jack and Jill live. I think it is interested in what is in the pail of water... So eek.. Maybe I am a crazy doll lady after all ???? C

Don't you think their houses (as in the set in Mad Men) are so mini-able themselves :)?

I am keeping a lookout for this dollhouse. Any idea which season and episode was this?

I can't wait to see it! Mad Men is my favorite show but I catch it On Demand a few days after each episode airs.

I noticed that too and wondered what kind it was
That show has very authentic sets, clothing.

Last night's. I stayed up late to see the second time it ran. It is the Marx tin litho. It is on US ebay all the time.
And yes they do a GREAT job with their sets.

I have yet to be captured by Mad Men, but the Barbie dolls are delicious. I want them all.

I'm glad the cat found a good home. I think it is running the place already.

We crazy cat ladies have to stick together. LOL
