A little over a week ago My Husband said...
"Lets go for a drive."
"OK." I said
We went to a town nearby. He was driving quite slowly down Main Street and I wondered if he was looking for a particular restaurant.
We drove around a corner and stopped to park. This area was very familiar to me. I held my breath.
My heart quickened...
and my palms may have started to sweat a bit.
As we walked toward this very familiar place I looked at my husband and he smiled back.
The jig was up. His sweet content smile gave him away.
We went up the familiar flight of stairs and I could not contain my happiness.
We were at Dollhouse Delights a store that is owned by a sweet older couple and they sell miniatures and Dollhouses. Yes,...Dollhouses!
"Pick out one that you love." hubby said
So after wanting one all my life, Marguerite ( she owns the store with her husband of 63 years!) patiently showed me all of my possibilities.
She was like the real estate agent of dollhouses! she said things like
" Well this one has a basement." and "You can add a porch to this one later on" and "Look at the huge rooms in this one!"
After all these years I stood in the midst of a fantasy and I couldn't decide; they were all so gorgeous.
The pre-made ones that were finished and furnished were obviously a lot more money. I wanted one that I could build....start from stratch... so I decided on a kit and this is the picture on the box
Look there's a "J"on the door...now who could have done that? ;0)
What the inside will look like when I begin to work on my childhood dream
another picture from the box
Now every homeowner dreams of renovating and possibly expanding...
This is my plan for the house...
We must have stayed there over an hour. After we left with the dollhouse kit in tow I gave my husband a great big hug and said..." Thank You for making my dream come true."
He just smiled and said "I'm glad you're happy hon."
I smiled all the way home as the little girl inside me leapt for joy
