Sometime on Tuesday the nice UPS driver will arrive at our house and leave a package on our porch steps containing my first "real" dollhouse. It will be waiting for me when I get home from work! It's not my first dollhouse. I had a tin one with painted rugs and an assortment of pink and brown plastic furniture like all little girls born in the 1950's had, and I loved it to pieces. I'd hate to tell you how many hours I spent lying on my belly moving the furniture around, peeking through the windows at the little beige family sitting in the living room watching the pink plastic TV and carrying on imaginary conversations between the one-legged mother and the one-armed father (they had a little accident). But that was a toy. My new dollhouse is the real deal. A 1/2" scale Country Farmhouse from Real Good Toys.
As fate would have it, I have Wednesday off, so I can dive right into the project with my Alene's Tacky Glue and the new Dremel Stylus and Mini-Driver Ev gave me for Christmas!
