Actually it started in the spring of 1987 when we moved across the street from a little girl named Karalee who soon won our hearts and became a much loved member of our family. A precious daughter so graciously shared with us by her mom &dad. Over the years that bond has grown and strengthened as life had us sharing both special times and sad tears.
When Charlotte arrived we were stumped. How do you choose a lasting gift that says without words - we love you. Something that takes the little things that tie us together and showcases them. Breaking those things down made it easy. What is important - family. What says family? Home. What do we share? A love of creating, of design & style, of order...of shopping :) What better way to tie all that together than with a dollhouse? And how fun it will be to have a project to work on together even though we live too far apart.
So that's why the blog. It will be a place to share idea's and inspiration for colours and design etc, so that it can be a seamless blend of our different styles and a way to keep tabs on the progress. Hopefully one day Charlotte will cherish the little house that her mom & Gramma Deb created for her.
