A new woodstove in late winter in Maine makes for exciting times! This past weekend I went to an auction. I even took my husband's truck, which I'm sure made him nervous. But I didn't get any big things, mostly smalls. The dolls started gathering around the woodstove. Be careful, Paper Doll Izzy!

Unkown carved doll, Megan Holloway, and an antique Brucker Topsy-Turvy.

The woodstove is either a cast iron doll stove or a salesman's sample. I'm not sure which. It has movable and working parts.
I also got this doll sized step-back cupboard. No idea of the age, probably vintage, but I liked it anyway.
They looked a tiny bit less scary near the woodstove.
