Go here to McKendry's doll house history http://www.mckendry.net/DOLLHOUSES/1930s-part_1.htm
to read a detailed account of the Line Brothers who started this company. There were 3 of them, and 3 lines make a triangle hence the name and logo "Triang".
I have 2 houses and one facade I changed the design of. (it was severly damaged). This is the smaller model and furnished with Tootsietoy furniture. It is wallpapered with Jennifer's printables which offer authentic antique and retro patterns. http://www.jennifersprintables.com/printables1.html I would love to know about this noble person who created this site! Can you offer us any information about her?
This house is inhabited by 3" German bisque dolls, who are named appropriately enough... the Bisques. Oh look their gardener is in front at work. It represents the time of the 1920's.(My larger Triang represents the 1930's, more about that later)
Today is my assistant's "real" birthday. She is 4. Today they sing "Happy Birthday" to her at circle time at preschool but her real party is in 2 weekends.
This is complicated by the fact that my other assistant who is currently living in my house with me has HER birthday tomorrow and she is an ancient 26. She celebrated her birthday Saturday and let's just say alcohol was involved. (She said her older sister ALWAYS upstaged her birthdays! We were just greatful the new generation has her own day . We were sweating that birth) I mean, together the birthday girls make up my staff. (Or am I theirs...) So we are in MAJOR birthday mode here and let me just say the theme for both of them seems to be "Princesses..." CM
