Vintage Thingie Thursday




Time is flyin' this May and it's time for Vintage Thingie Thursday, now hosted by Colorado Lady, not Apron Queen.
This little item is from one of my favorite thrift stores. It is stamped Japan on the bottom of the biggest house. While it is true that these houses are made of thin veneer, it is also true that the windows and doors are not painted, but inlaid colored veneer. So there is a bit of craft involved in what is probably a tourist gift item. And, only 69 cents!
