Doll House holds so many memories

This dollhouse of mine holds so many memories. I know that I just turned 34 but just opening the lid on this doll house never fails to make me smile!

My grandmother made this doll house for me when I was about 7 years old; give or take a year or so.I have not always had it displayed. For many moons it was stored up in my parents attic.I had fallen in love with the look of primitives and had the space so it was brought out again. I had forgotten the joy it could bring to me.

When you lift the lid and peer inside......parts of my grandmothers home peek up at you from inside.

The rug on the floors matched were pieces from my grandmothers own rugs. The paper on the walls were from her rooms as well.The room done all in blue was exactly like the bedroom I slept in when I visited her. Even the kitchen floor was her linoleum!

I played for many hours with this doll house. My nieces have now played with it as well. The memories for us all will continue and it will be passed on for future generations.

I had alway thought I wanted to change things in the house and make it very prim looking in style inside. But with the selling of my grandmothers home a few years ago, this now has taken on even more special memories that I don't ever what to change.
