My Pretty Little House



Last summer, Gramma bought a dollhouse like this for Noe (and all her future granddaughters) to play with at her house. Noe liked it so much Gramma wanted to send it home with her, but it was just too big to get on the plane. This past spring Noe got her very own dollhouse for her birthday.




When Gramma came to visit in the spring, I commented on how I wish I lived in a perfect little dollhouse. Gramma responded that I did. That made me smile.




Home Sweet Home! My home may not be a "dream" house, but right now it is the home of our dreams. We've lived here for 2 years now. Our first summer we were busy unpacking. Last summer I was busy finishing up all the decorating. This summer I have been busy going through each room top to bottom. I've gone through every closet, drawer, cupboard, and cabinet clearing away the junk. I still have the 2 storage rooms in the basement to do, plus the garage, shed, and dreaded file cabinets. Wish me luck to get it all done before summer is over!




I love hanging a wreath for each season.

Every corner of the house shows personality. Your grandma was right about you living in a dollhouse-like home. How long has that tree been there? I noticed that it's blocking some of details of your house. I can't tell you to cut it down, because at some point it has an advantage. It could be a shed and a good source of fresh air, but I wish it was placed at the backyard. Anyway, good job on keeping the house! Your hubby and the kids must be proud.
