Deciding on my second dollhouse.

Recommended Posts

My son is going to buy my next dollhouse for me. Every year he buys me something really nice. He's a single dad and I've helped him raise his children from the time they were babies. 

My granddaughter who is 7 now is going to help me with this dollhouse. It will be a fun memory for her. I think it's great that she's excited (she's so much like me.)

I can't decide! How do any of you decide what to build next? 

My current dollhouse has 4 rooms and the attic. I want something bigger but not humongous. I'm limited on space as it is. LOL.  The height doesn't really matter. 

We both agree it should be "Fancy"! LOL

I go with whatever house calls my name or otherwise speaks to me.  What about the Harrison?

They all kinda speak to me! LOL

The Beacon Hill and the Garfield are speaking to both of us but they are pretty large. I think I'm leaning towards the Beacon Hill. There is no way I could find room for the Garfield unless I get rid of my sofa. 

It's large but mostly in height so I shouldn't have a big problem on space.

The Harrison is beautiful! Maybe I should get rid of my bed and sleep on the couch. That would give me room for several dollhouses. LOL

I had a Willowcrest for a while, but it never would tell me how to make it bigger and still look right.

I love it too! I have so many "wants". LOL

When I told my husband I wanted to build another dollhouse he said, you can build a dollhouse village. I got all excited and told him that was a wonderful idea. :cucumber:

I'm still waiting for a reply, nothing yet. They probably sold it quickly at that price. :ermm:

Just got a reply and It's already sold. :cry:

My son came home a little bit ago with the Painted Lady. My little granddaughter is thrilled. She's already looking at paint samples for the exterior. Pink and purple are two of the colors she's picked out so far. LOL.

How old is your granddaughter?  I think all little girls love pink and purple!

She's 7. I picked up lots of paint samples for us to go through. I'm not sure about pink and purple on the exterior but we can work it in somewhere. LOL

When I was a little girl at some point a box of Prang crayons came into my possession and I quickly wore out the turquoise and magenta ones.
