We bought a fixer upper……sort of. I want to think that it’s a fixer upper, but some people, like Little Miss, think it’s just fine the way it is. It has two bedrooms, a kitchen, a dining room, a living room, one or two fireplaces, and a small front porch. It’s actually a doll house, and it really does need some DIY and TLC.
I love, love, love a good doll house. Jordan had a really cute one when she was growing up, and when I saw this one at my local consignment shop back in December, I fell in love – even though it needs some work. I called them in January to see if it was still there, and they said it had sold. However, Jordan and I stopped in the store last week to do some browsing, and there it was. The person who helped me on the phone back in January thought I was talking about a Barbie doll house that they had sold. No, I was talking about this one. They discounted it down 20 percent since it had been there so long, and bam, I bought it.
Little Miss played with it when she was here last week. I cannot find the doll house furniture that we had in Jordan’s little house, and I am positive that I didn’t get rid of it. We have some temporary furniture and a lot of accessories, and I am not sure where they came from, but for now they are perfectly fine. We ordered a doll house family, and they are all blond. I was hoping to find a little Asian girl, but so far, no luck on that.
I am going to paint the exterior but will probably leaven the inside alone. It has some wallpaper and carpet, and it is fine. This doll house will stay here, and I am hoping it will be an enticement for more visits from the little one. Wink, wink!!!
