Dixie Goes to Auction

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

Dolls from left to right are by Jackie Hendricks, Elaine McNally,
 Unkown carved doll, Megan Holloway, and an antique Brucker Topsy-Turvy.

Elaine's Izzy is warming her feet. 

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.

It was such a neat day, I decided to let the creepy dolls I accidentally won in from the cold garage to warm up.

They looked a tiny bit less scary near the woodstove.
