D is for Dollhouse
I have to admit I was stumped on what to use for the letter D this week. I have been cleaning out and organizing drawers and I was leaning towards that, even took a picture of a whole dresser of empty drawers. Boring. Then I visited Jamye at http://talefromthecoopkeeper.blogspot.com/ and read this post:

My dad built dollhouse's for my younger sister and myself for Christmas when we were very young. They matched except the front doors were on opposite sides. A few years ago I decided to add some decorative painting on mine and hubs added some shingles. I also added the little stones that are on the chimney. So this is what the outside of the house looks like now
The inside of the house is really rough and needs some fresh paint, wallpaper, rugs and a lot more. I have been collecting some furnishings but have not started working on the rooms yet, but Jayme, coop-keeper sure has given me some new ideas. The really fun thing that has recently happened concerning my dollhouse is one of our neighbors gave my husband some dollhouse plans he had received from his dad. He expected hubs would like to use them to build our grand daughters dollhouses.
