Decorating for Christmas

 This weekend, I got a Christmas project for my grand-daughter almost completed. It was so much fun. 

Last year for Christmas, I got her a dollhouse which she loves. So...I have been making Christmas decorations for it: A Christmas tree, a wreath for the little door door, A little mailbox with tiny little Christmas cards in their own tiny envelopes to open, stockings to hang, even a set of battery operated lights for the roof. A couple trays of 'cookies' to slide in and out of the tiny oven.  A snowman to sit on the sparkly blanket of 'snow' that will drape under the house, and even a sled for 'the guys' (that's what she calls the residents of her dollhouse). Even a Santa Claus and a small pile of gifts for him to put beneath the tree.

She's got such a wonderful imagination and the best part of it is that her little imagination has re-sparked my own. Every time that I think that I'm done, I think of something else to add to the little collection!

This is incredible. She is going to love all of it! I wish I were crafty or handy or whatever it takes to do these sorts of projects. Will you share a photo eventually?

Pictures please Debby. Christmas magic and imagination is what we all need.

She needs a little treasure box to keep all the small pieces in when she is not playing with them. A lost card or small cookies would be a real problem since the vac might pick it up.

I custom built a six room dollhouse for my oldest daughter with real siding, shingles, windows and lots and lots of furniture, etc. I think she played with the thing perhaps a couple hours and her younger sister even less. I finally sold the thing at a garage sale last spring. I guess some girls are just not into dollhouses for some reason.

Debby said...

Oh, that's funny, Ed. All the work you did...wish I'd have been at that garage sale!

I can take pictures. This weekend though. Too busy right now.

You have a wonderful view out that window! I'd be gazing out instead of getting my work done!
