Now I Know Where It All Started...Thanks Tinker

Mortgage and Lending with Liberty Bank of Arkansas

Thanks to  Tinker Hulsey Century 21 Indian Realty Jonesboro Ark  and her post DOLL HOUSE DOOR PRIZE CRAIGHEAD COUNTY FAIR JONESBORO ARKANSAS  Now I know where it all started!

Go to fullsize imageI loved doll houses as a young girl. I would play in my little doll house for hours. I would even make my own furniture out of everyday household items. Is this where I learned how to work with what you have? Did I learn to stage houses from my little doll house as a young girl?

Thanks Tinker, this explains a lot about where I am today.

I also guess this explains why I bought my daughter a doll house when she was young. She didn't want anything to do with it at age 19, she could care less about decorating. She just moved into her first condo, and called me to decorate for her. She just didn't have an interest, she said you know what I like. So I did my thing!

Funny how things that happen so young in life mold what we will become.


Tinker, have fun at the County Fair!

So true, I just loved doll houses and miniature furniture and I was very particular with the placement!  That "stager potential" is there very early!

Your story sounds familiar Donna.  I too bought my daughter one and we painted and decorated it together.  We even made an event out of it with a yearly trip to the doll house store in by Chicago since there are none around here.  It was a fun project to work on with her and she still has it.  If only we could get those lights to work all the time!!  Apparently my electrical skills are lacking. For now it is just waiting patiently to be handed down to the next generation:)

Kurt, So true, I think I'll always be helping my poor daughter. She just doesn't share my talant or interest.

Sharon, Who would have ever thought?

Michele, Well my daughter's doll house is waiting to be handed down. But I'm not sure it will be to her children. She is not the domestic type, not sure she wants to have children. But I have hope in my son...he loves kids!
