I wasn’t planning to go garage saling on Saturday. BUT, on the way to my daughter’s house to pick up some yard tools I stopped at just one sale. Just one. Look at all of the pretty things I found there!
Okay, I know you can see it! The doll house! It belonged to the girl who was having the sale. She said her father made it for her when she was a child. Her mother had been keeping it for her grandchildren but they got tired of waiting I guess? I’m so glad! I had a doll house when I was a little girl too. I’m saving this one for MY future grandchildren! For now I’m just going to have fun fixing it up!
Just look at all of the pretty details!
Love the porch, the railing and the blue shutters! The windows have real glass in them too!
Look at the little transom over the front door!
Aren’t these little window boxes cute? They even have flowers in them!
The house does need some work, as most older homes do…
The living room carpet needs to be vacuumed. The stairs have no railing – not up to code. Plus there are wallpaper issues…
There is even crown molding and chair railing. The house has no plumbing so I won’t have to worry about that!
I’m going to have such a good time restoring this little cottage! There’s nothing a little imagination and hard work can’t fix though. I’m sure it won’t take as long or cost as much at the 1920 bungalow I had in Sanford, FL!
There is even a deck off the upstairs master bedroom! How fun is that?!
Hope you have a good day today. I’m so glad I decided to stop at this sale! You just never know what you might find out there!
