Dollhouse Address:

302 Florence Way (named after her mom)

 

Favorite Room:

So hard to pick- the Master Suite in Gold, the Cherub themed Living/Dining room featuring Cherub wallpaper, carpet, andirons, candlesticks, and light fixtures or the Rose Themed Master Bedroom.

Lessons learned:

Gluing oneself to the spiral stairway and a few wiring whoopsies involving smoke and blackened floors and walls!

Personal touches:

Portraits of granddaughter Stephanie- 1st floor foyer, granddaughter Alyssa- 2nd floor foyer, and daughter Charlene- 3rd floor foyer.

 

The house was completed in February of 2017, but she's always re-arranging and making or acquiring new pieces.
