What a good repurposing of your dollhouse...I have two of them in my attic just sitting around doing nothing! I wonder if I could lose myself playing with them...nah, I am pretty much lost in Blogland as it is. Beautiful mosaic...I kept trying to enlarge it as I so wanted to see it closer.

Hi Karen,

I adore your post today, the sweet dolls house and all the vintage notions.
Why do the old laces and ribbons always look so much more beautiful?
Gorgeous treasures.

Have a happy week

Karen, I just barely got here since my mornings this early in the school year are crazy. This is a wonderful walk back into your childhood, and I too have a special place where I keep small and special momentos hidden! Lovely pictures and I am awaiting the clothe that you so lovingly perfected for me!!! Hope to see it come soon.....Anita
