I had this mug in my favorites on Etsy and was sad to see that it had sold. I always wait too long. I was so shocked to see it since I thought it was far out of my reach forever. So cute!
Thanks, friend, for totally making me miss my post office trip and be late back to work, and for these great gifts!
P.S. I'm sorry my cat bit you, but you totally deserved it. ;)

Now I knew something strange was happening. I turned around to find my mom and little sister hiding in a neighbor's yard and watching me (they'd watched me inspect the Vaseline this whole time!...I'll get to the significance of the Vaseline at the end of this post). Anyway, this, my friends, is the same dollhouse I simply ADORED when I was very young- maybe three or four years old. Not the exact one, but a duplicate. I spent countless hours playing with dollhouse. My mom found it on Ebay and surprised me with it for my birthday. I had not seen this in practically 30 years. Let me tell you, the memories came flooding back.
This kitchen floor was practically the same one my grandma had when I was growing up. I still remember thinking that as I played with it as a child:
I just love the little quilt on the bed!

I really love the way the dainty lace looks with the rich autumn plaid. I think I'll wear it to work today, too. :D
Anyone else going to the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago this weekend?? Let me know so I can look for you! (I won't be selling, but I never miss this great buying opportunity!)

My favorite part about it is the page where you can see all the checkout dates:
I love how they used all different color markers to cross out the dates. The oldest date stamped on this page is June of 1966.
I love this book.

I don't know about you sewing girls out there, but I am ALWAYS losing my needles- in the carpet, in fact. I have stepped on too many to count. I am so happy to have an adorable little place to store them now. Thank you soooo much, piki!
