Winter is pretty – if you can observe the wonderland from your toasty warm window seat with a little fire and a refrigerator full of groceries … Nice! Actually winter is a great time to organize stuff like closets, drawers, and pull out our dollies to have a good day of just, well play. My dilemma is that with our house staged for sale – there just anything to organize, it’s all in storage, including the dolls. Sigh. So what does little miss ‘got to have something to do‘ take on? Well how about a weekend, baby kitchen remodel project – to modernize the ‘look’. All new appliances, a new mosaic tile wall treatment, all new cabinet pulls, a new counter and stool – and it just keeps growing. So the weekend went by and there are still a couple of days of work left. I’m having another ‘WHAT was I thinking’ moment.
Moving on to playing with dolls & teddy bears – shows are my creative outlet and there are some great events on the horizon!
