Friday Show and Tell.......

It's Show and Tell over at Kelli's so hurry on over to see the list of bloggers participating.......



This was outside a garbage dumpster.........
A beautiful two story, hardwood doll house that someone evidently had begun to construct.....the extra siding, windows, some furniture, etc., were with it.......

I hope soon to show the completed doll house...........

Oh my, how could anybody throw that away!! It's darling! Are you going to start collecting small doll house furniture now, or do you already have some? I always wanted a big doll house, but never had one.

Heidi said...

It was being thrown out?!?!?! My mother is going to cry when she reads this. I am glad you saved it. My mother has tons of dollhouses. She collected items for it from all over the world too. She would be very happy to see you are joining in on the fun of owning a dollhouse. I just still cannot get over someone just throwing this out in the garbage.

Thank you for always stopping by and leaving such sweet comments. I am so glad you found my blog and love hearing from you.

Hugs ~
Heidi

Betty said...

Hi Betty,

Sometimes you can find treasures that people are just throwing away. Who's finishing the doll house?

Mary said...

Betty,

The dollhouse is fantastic. I can't imagine it was by a dumpster. Someone has put a lot of work into that.

I look forward to seeing it when you have completed it. It's going to be gorgeous.

Have a wonderful weekend, my friend.

Blessings,
Mary
