Birthday Party!

Today's my birthday, and some of my teddy bears decided to set up a little party with my newest doll furniture.
The bears are mostly 1920s Shuco miniatures (the smallest are 2 1/2 inches high, while the largest are 5 inches), along with a 1910 Steiff, and the dining room set is by the Star Novelty Company, also circa 1910. The party accessories include a couple of old German-made cakes, teeny spoons (for the ice cream, of course) and lots of itty bitty gifts.

 A close-up of the cakes. The two molded ones are very old
German pieces, 
while the frosted cake is a Dolly Dear product, circa 1940.

  1. Happy Birthday! How very thoughtful of those bears to bake cakes and buy you presents. I hope they leave you some cake.

  2. Happy birthday!! Great party, looks like there'd be lots of interesting conversation :)

  3. What a lovely scene! And too late but congratulations on your birthday!

  4. My kind of party. My husband has a bear collection (nothing vintage, just fun stuff) and will arrange them in interesting vignettes around the house. A belated happy birthday. I'm spending the evening catching up with all your great finds.

  5. A belated happy birthday! How kind of the bears - I love their party hats! I hope you had a great time, and enjoyed the cakes and presents :-)
