a special gift

Logan's doll house from start to finish was a group project indeed-- my vision, my dad's craftsmanship paired my mom's push and a deadline, and Scott's willing to help out with whatever [and in playing along with all of my abstract ideas.]

Pop-pop [with Grammy's as his lovely assistant] built it and assembled the real-life roof. 

Daddy painted it [bright white] and spray painted the furniture. 

Mommy decorated it with craft paper [and bought a few house plants at Lo's request, because really, what's a house without plant life?]  

Santa furnished it [with some thrifted pieces which he then spray painted with silver and cream paint, to give it a brand-new look and some new pieces that light up, flush, and brew-- lamp, toilet, and stove.] 

And, Logan l o v e s it. This may be an understatement. She completely adores it. And I adore that. I love to sit and watch her be creative and max out her imagination. She is such a smart little thing and often realistic in her play too. Many times we'll find a naked doll sitting in the bathtub, cups on the [way too small] kitchen table, the hand soap at the sink [seen in picture,] and someone always tucked in bed. Her little brain is perfection.

The house still needs a few things, like some wall art, flooring, throw pillows, etc... but that's mostly for my entertainment. For Lo, it is totally perfect, as is.

  7. This is truly something to cherish - and being that it was a family effort (with Santa's help) makes it all the more special. It's beautiful!!!
