Here is the greenhouse. (pardon my hair, but it was very windy that day and cold!)
This room is the library. Real miniature books, paintings, and musical instruments on the floor in front the couch.
The parlor. The gas chandlier was made by the Corning Company in New York. I love the little tea set. Oh and the polar bear rug, was made from a real critter that was eating the eggs of Tasha's hens. She and her grandson made short work of the critter and a taxidermist made it into a "polar bear".
This lovely entry hall has a replica chair of one owned by Tasha. Inside the curio cabinet is a set of miniature porceline Beatrix Potter characters. They were sent to the dolls by the person who handles the estate of Beatrix Potter.
This is the bedroom, in all it's cluttery glory.
Here is the dining room. Real dishes, paintings, furniture...
Here is the kitchen. It is apparently a replica of Tasha's. Several items really work.
The goat barn. This is an exact replica as well....
Even down to the goat droppings!
I was so happy to be able to see this exhibition, especially since I had just read the book about it. It is part of a special exhibition showing children's things, toys, furniture etc...
Wow I love the goat area!! Ryan would love the goats!! What cool pics Auntie Dee!ReplyDelete

Love the dollhouse...teeny things make me happy!
Gotta get to "schooling".
Becky! I like little teeny things too!!ReplyDelete
I love Tasha's artwork so I would have been interested to see this. Did they have any of her artwork or just the dollhouse?? I didn't see any miniature corgy's, were there any??
I don't remember about the corgi's. I also read that the dolls should have been there but they were not, so maybe they were out walking the corgis!ReplyDelete
Our library has a ton of Tasha Tudor books. I checked out alot of them and they are interesting, her cookbook especially. Good recipes!
