The Big Reveal

 What is under the tablecloth? (Besides LoveJoy, the cat, that is.;-) )
 No peeking!
They loved it! I have already done some repair work, though. In retrospect, I would have made the living room furniture from scratch as I think that would have been more durable. I had to glue the couch side back on and I replaced the fancy legs with short wooden spools because the scroll work cracked. The girls and their dollhouse are back home in Indianapolis now so I don't have to resist the urge to put the toilet back in the bathroom or the bed back in the bedroom (rather than the living room, lol.) Sometimes, I wish I still had that child-like imagination where things don't have to be in "normal" places. Anyway, the dollhouse was a hit and they even received some small dolls from others who will fit in well.

Wishing you all a wonderful, blessing- filled New Year!

What a wonderful surprise under the tablecloth! I loved how Lovejoy the cat was also under there! What is it with cats and dollhouses?
Looks like the kids had fun.

Thank you, ladies! It was fun to see their excitement. Most of the other dollhouses I made for children have been gifts from their parents so I didn't get to see the "big reveal." I enjoyed this one!
