Felicity's Colonial Collection

 
A little more colonial fun with Felicity.
 I use a wooden vintage doll box for her clothes press.


Felicity wears her green gown and pinner.

 
Store clothes in the drawers.
 


 
Mini brass candlesticks with a blue pineapple design plate from the Williamsburg Foundation.



 
The hospitality of the pineapple.
  



Fabric covered box in colonial print can be used as a chest.


Or as a chair.


 
Bedtime snacks by OG.



 
Use an old spice rack as a shelf.
 

 
Salt glaze pottery from the Williamsburg Pottery Factory.

 






 


Add a small silver tray with a crackle blue glass vase.

  2. Oh Madelon, I absolutely love your Colonial Williamsburg collection. Did you pick these items up in the Williamsburg area? All at once, or did you build this collection over time? I have found a couple of Colonial Williamsburg items in my local thrift stores, but nothing "mini" enough for Felicity. (Recently, got a stuffed sheep, but she's not exactly the right scale--lol!)

    1. Marcia, thank you! Most of the items I found in Maryland where I live. I built the collection over time. I look on the Colonial Williamsburg website for inspiration and then I go searching. A store called the English Trading Company(which closed in our area) sold the porcelain tray. We used to go to the Pottery fairly regularly, though. I find that small saucers work well for serving trays, especially those with a blue and white motif or pink and white. I cover the indentation with food or a small piece of linen. I am frequently on the hunt. I love colonial history. I also like the Lovvbug website. They have lots of small pieces. Let me know what you find, if you don't mind. Madelon

  3. OK seriously, a spice rack as a doll-sized shelf. Ingenious! It totally works. I wish my mind worked like that.
