A Dolls House
February 11, 2014
I've been dreaming of a lovely dollhouse for our little girl for a while, but I had something larger and more beautiful in mind. You know, an heirloom which could be played with forever and passed down to the next generation. But the more I stood there and looked at this poor old house, the more I wanted to rescue it.
After some thinking I began to see possibilities, but the magic happened when I changed my thinking from me into we. Perhaps we could do this project together as a family. Together we can sand and paint, choose colours, sew, make furniture...
Suddenly this house became alive in my mind.
So I bought it.
The investment was $2.50 and we are hoping to renovate it without spending a cent.
Here begins the journey of our little dollhouse. A rather modest, very inexpensive dollhouse that I hope will provide many happy memories. Did you have a dollhouse as a child? What was the thing you remember most about it?
