My Favorite Critters

When I was little, my Maple Town 'people' lived in my dollhouse. I had lots of families all living under one roof....Kinda like an apartment. I still have these families, and plan on using some of them in my room boxes. I drug them all out the other night, was going to set them up for you....but then I had remembered I had bagged up the families and labeled each of them. I really didn't want to take them all out....Although I'm sure they would all appreciate some fresh air. Some of them are Maple Town, some are called Sylvaninan Families, and I think there is also Calico Critters and Forest Families. Just different companies that pretty much made the same thing. Either way, they're one of my most prized possessions! I added another figure to the couch, that way the one that was already there doesn't get lonely. . Do you see the 2 shaving cream tops on the sides of the couch. This is where I'm stuck~ I can't figure out what I want to do with them. I know I want to use them as side tables, I'm just not sure what finish I want. I thought about covering them with Mod Podge and tissue paper....or I could paint them....or I could roll them in glue~ and then roll them in those little tiny beads............OK, do you see my dilemma......ugggg! Decisions, decisions!! LOL~ the floor is not really white, that's my 'drop cloth' (a piece of poster board cut to size) for the living room. It keeps Otis from chewing and scratching at the new floors that I put in there.
Speaking of Otis, he's taking a break from the dollhouse. Daddy bought some new shoes, so Otis has a new box. He likes it with the lid least I think he does, he curls right up in there and goes to sleep.
Unless there's something fun to play with....and trying to steal the camera cord is Always fun!!

I love the Sylvaninan families to make a special dollhouse to them...
