i introduce you to my latest project...
the noodle and lou doll house!
i am sooooo stinkin' excited, i can barely
stand it!!!! i've been wanting an OLD doll house
forever. my pop pop made me one when i was
a little girl and i can remember playing
with that fabulous house for hours and hours.
days and days. years and years.
so many fond memories!!
sadly, that one isn't around anymore...
and this is not even close to a replacement...
but it's all mine all mine!! yipppeee!!!
those of you who know me well,
know that i love a good ol' fixer upper.
i will always prefer something old and chippy
and rusty over something brand new.
and ummmm...this house sure fits the bill.
and an absolute fixer-upper.
i accidentally vaccuumed up several layers
of dirt before i thought to take "before" pics!
it's so freaking perfectly vintage.
it's wood. it's handmade.
and the best part? jake found this for me
while we were at an estate sale this past
weekend. he came running downstairs
and said "mom, mom there is something you
are TOTALLY going to want upstairs"
i still have my childhood furniture and
dolls that will inhabit this happy house.
so stay tuned for the magical transformation.
'cause really. i have nothing but free time;)
happy vintage tuesday!!
