It’s still here – my dollhouse. It’s sitting in a corner of the den. I won’t have any time to do anything with it until fall. But I look at it every day, while I sit in my chair and blog or watch TV. It needs a lot of work because its rather the worse for wear. The shingles need replacing, the outside needs a fresh coat of paint, I want to replace the shutters, and whoever assembled the house didn’t do such a wonderful job with the upstairs windows…they are crooked. And the inside is totally unfinished. Despite its flaws, I love it. Or maybe because of its flaws, I love it. Mockingbird Hill Cottage has a lot of irregularities. After all, it was built in 1891. Some of the windows here are slightly crooked, too.
Oh, and the front door won’t stay shut. I have no idea how to do anything. I’m reading a lot about dollhouses and everything to do with them. My blogging friends who are miniaturists inspire me every day. So when the days cool off and I start to spend more time indoors, I will be getting to work on this sweet, imperfect dollhouse.
