El Ramla Hamra, Wool Moroccan Blanket
I decided that I would like to give my oldest daughter DC my dollhouse that my grandfather Craig built for me when I was a kid.
A dollhouse was actually on DC’s list in addition to the hideous hunk of fuchsia plastic the Dream Castle. But I can’t complain because I wanted a Barbie dream house so badly as a child, Kristin you know what I’m talking about here.
After sitting in the my parent’s garage for almost 20 years, whaaatttt! It actually emerged from the depths in great shape. I guess I’d call it a Southern Colonial.
The tan and brown aren’t exactly happening and it I thought it would be a pretty quick and easy task to give it a paint job. After some consideration I decided that I would paint it the original exterior color scheme for the Indiana project.
Ben Moore’s Iron Mountain and a light blue accent like Wythe Blue,
Now finding a dollhouse family that is the right size and not creepy looking was a whole other challenge. I opted for this one but I think they will be a little on the big side but I don’t think DC will mind.
Great art and coffee table books have always been a part of my wishlist. I wanted to share a few with you that are sure to be on mine this holiday season. All found on Amazon but don’t forget about Overstock–they have a great selection too.
