more doll house

First, some interesting Jack in the Pulpit berries Eliot, my Mother and I found while taking a walk in the woods. They are large and very striking. We took mental notes so that we can hunt for the flower next spring. Spring feels very far away right now.

I have been focusing a lot of my attention on my doll house recently, as I had mentioned earlier. My Father and I came came to the conclusion that it was built after I was born so somewhere in the late 70's. You can also see that we are storing our shoes under it. One of my projects will be to make a skirt around the bottom to hide the unsightly mess.

I want to reupholster this couch. Speaking of reupholstering, I saw a chair today on the side of the road on the way to work, actually, the past 3 days, that I am having a hard time not picking up. It is 70's mustard yellow and probably totally soaked with the rain we have had the past few days but it has a nice shape. If it is there tomorrow you may see pictures. But, shhhh, don't tell my husband!

I am planning to make new linens for the beds, too. It will be a good winter project and a great use for fabric scraps.

It's amazing to me that the Jack-in-the-Pulpit puts out this fantastic berry display. I've found a number of them in the Yarmouth Preserve down the street.
Are you in the market for making a doll for Adeline, my grand niece? She will be two in December. I think she would love one of the bunny creatures, and of course I will pay for it.

Oh my, that is such a sweet doll house! To know that you are taking such great care of it, that is just lovely.

Love the doll house and if it had been me driving by that chair, it wouldn't have lasted one day! :) I've already pulled out a really nice crib from my neighbor's garbage! (shhhh...don't tell anyone)
