if you have a "large box hardware store", like a Lowe's, Home Depot..any where really that they sell home improvement things...you may be able to get tiny mouldings there! they sometimes have very small scale things like that.

I was thinking of a vintage oval brooch as a mirror frame? do you think that would look ok? in the picture of the fireplace in the article the frame to the mirror is quite fancy.

Yes, Patty that would do the job fine!

Had a read through your article and yes!...there was the fire place! a lot nicer than mine I have to say, with all the bits intact.
So now i'm not sure what to do with my 'bald' one, I don't know how I could replace the lost bits?

I have seen moulding like the side mouldings on a site somewhere, the mantle can just be a piece of ply and any oval mirror the right size will do the job. You might be lucky and find a damaged fireplace with the right bits but you will wait a long time!

Er, we also have an article about Pit-a-Pat! There's a photo of a fireplace with overmantel and box kerb like this near the end of the article (http://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/issue10aug2011p4.htm), in the Electrical Items section, as they had a flex to light up a bulb in the grate.
Also, you can see what the sofa and chair cushions looked like - not thick at all, but they look more comfy with them!

Just read these comments again, Patty and must apologise that my first one sounds a bit rude, I think I was just a bit carried away that I actually recognised something... sorry!

certainly didn't interpret your comment as rude, Zoe! I knew what you meant!
...the comment you made about Eileen's doll looking like a vet....that WAS rude!

Just looked in Marion's book and def Pit-a-Pat, quite a bit of detail missing from fire place. Should have an oval mirror, mantle shelf with beading up each side to the shelf and a raised bit across the front of the hearth with the same mouldings as on the top edge. I could scan and email the relevant pages if it would be of interest.
