As promised, here is the first post on The Year of the Dollhouse- The Journal Adventure. We’ve just been getting started the past few weeks. R10 has been setting up house and we went on a field trip which I will share next (almost forgot!). The idea is to just have a chance to talk about keeping house while being creative and connecting through journaling. So far, it’s been quite fun and it’s just getting going.
The sewing room which is upstairs in the attic. She’s all set with the ironing board, the Cheval mirror and a trunk (which I’m certain will have loads of fabric in it!). We need to be on the lookout for a sewing machine and dress form. Notice the dress laid out on the trunk.
R10 has been really excited to do this and the last time I pulled out her old dollhouse things, she didn’t want them all but now she does. I used to give them to her every so often in our first round of The Year of the Dollhouse, but this time I gave her the whole box. Some furniture is inherited from my niece (the Fisher Price dollhouse from the mid-90s). That same niece is heading to college tomorrow. Wow. (have a good trip Kim!) Some of the furniture we bought new for this house. R10 has had this dollhouse since she was 2 and it’s undergone some renovation that she helped with during Year of the Dollhouse Part 1.
