Work on the dollhouse has slowed a bit lately. It’s hard to keep those construction crews working when other things need to be done. They tell me they need more wallpaper and trim for the bathroom and studio. They have to tile the bathroom floor. Blah, blah, blah. There’s always something.
The dollhouse finally has a street address. 21 is my favorite, maybe even lucky, number. It’s my birthdate. The urns arrived a few weeks ago. My plan is to age them a bit with some paint. I’m not crazy about this color. They will be filled with something festive for the holidays.
A long time ago I wrote a post about the dollhouse and asked everyone to suggest a name for this sweet cottage. One name stuck with me: Hummingbird Cottage. I’m sorry to say that I cannot remember who suggested it – if you did, let me know. Drum roll…..I dub thee, “Hummingbird Cottage.”
There. It’s official.
I’d say the street name is Mockingbird Lane, but wasn’t that the street the Munsters or Addams Family lived on? I’ll have to google that.
Don, poor guy, worked until midnight last night, got up early today to start jury duty, will come home, change clothes and work until late tonight. Let’s hope he doesn’t have to serve on a jury. A day or two of this schedule is hard enough, but a whole week?
Be sure to come back tomorrow, when Brenda and I tackle the challenge of finding storage in a small kitchen.
Googled it. The Munsters lived at 1313 Mockingbird Lane.
