|Sophie finally has her own home. Can you see how happy she is?!|
When I was online recently, I happened upon a dollhouse for sale. It looked a lot like the kit I was going to build, but it already had real siding, working glass windows and doors, stairways, wallpaper, hardwood floors--the works! The dollhouse, made from a Celerity Lady Emily dollhouse kit, included a house full of furniture too! The whole lot only cost a little bit more than the dollhouse kit I received for Christmas, which was already very reasonable. Wow! Something I could afford, and it was already pre-built--woohoo!

I know not all of you are like me in this way, but shingling a roof sounds like drudgery when all I want to do is start decorating and setting up my mini scenes and stories! So this house sounded perfect to me. Then when I saw the house, I was floored, because it was decorated so beautifully. The builder had wonderful taste in wallpaper and paint colors and had added gorgeous hardwood floors, wainscoting, trim, and doors.

Not only that, the furniture was in impeccable condition, and there were tons of cute accessories too. That first evening, after I got the house home, I could hardly sleep I was so thrilled! Acquiring this house is a dream come true for me.

So what happened to the dollhouse kit that hubby gave me? I still had time to return it to Home Depot, but my friend Sheri wanted to buy the kit from me, so I sold it to her instead of returning it, and everyone was happy!

I'll show you more about this new house in future posts. I'll be decorating it for a while, no doubt. In the meantime, there will be stories in Sophie's new house with updates as I go along.
