Many years ago when we were first looking for a home to buy, my dream was to purchase an old farmhouse. That didn't work out, but I still get completely twitterpated at the very mention of the word "farmhouse". So what's a girl to do? Well, I'm so excited to tell you that I am now the proud owner of this very old and neglected large farmhouse style dollhouse! I'm in love! It truly is like an old abandoned farmhouse that just needs some tlc and a good dose of cottage style.
Just what I need, right? Another house to remodel! The best part? This big house only cost me $25! Gotta love Craigslist!
"But Kim", you say..."Didn't you order this other dollhouse kit a few weeks ago?"
You are correct. I did. But the company I ordered it from was out of stock and I ended up canceling the order. I had that house in mind for a miniature bakery I'm dying to build. Instead, I found this kit called The Storybook Cottage by Greenleaf, ordered it, and now it's just waiting for me to figure out how to put it together. Isn't it adorable? It will make a perfect bakery!
But my girls and I also wanted a house. A full sized miniature house with a few rooms to decorate in my beloved cottage style. Being the instant gratification girl that I am - and being that we are in the middle of a long, drawn out real life house remodel, I decided that I didn't want to build a big house myself. A pre-assembled old fixer is the direction I want to take for this one...that way I can jump right into the fun stuff like plastering the walls, painting, adding moulding and beadboard, installing pretty flooring and ceilings...Oh, the possibilities!
We've been really busy around lately and my computer time has been limited, so I've been flying under the radar lately in blogland and emailworld. We are still working on the studio. I said before that I wouldn't make anymore deadlines for the studio. I did anyway - hoping to be finished by now, but we couldn't have predicted some
At any rate, life goes on and this week we are preparing to take an out of state trip. There is lots of shopping and packing and cleaning to do - it wears me out just thinking about it all! But I'm looking forward to our return and resuming work on "all our houses".
