FROM THE DREAM . . .




of sixty-five years ago, when I painted my dollhouse kitchen pink with my Mother’s nail polish in the dead of night. . .






To the NOW, this week, about ten minutes after four plumbers and a supervisor walked out my door, leaving me with my real Dream Kitchen.

Moire non, when I can organize pictures, find the words, and remember my name.

Thank you for your patience.

Hi Rachel~ I'm back online and wanted to let you know, after some major life changes. I don't have an email yet, but when I do, I'll let you know. Hope you're doing well!

Oh, I LOVE it!!! How pretty and dainty looking! Sometimes our dreams take a long time to come true, but it makes it oh so much sweeter when they come to pass. :)

You womenfolk do get excited about fancy kitchens. I get excited about your writing about these charming everyday activities that you heighten into something special.

It's absolutely perfect, Rachel ... may the hours you spend there be as happy as the ones you spent playing in the kitchen of your dollhouse.

Hi Rachel, I came over to wish you and your family a happy 4th of July. I bet you are cooking in your beautiful new kitchen. I hope you have a wonderful and fun day.

I started an email to you and our service went out for two days. They delayed coming out to fix it because of terrible storms here and it is still raining. The dish on our roof failed. Anyway, life is always a bit crazy and never a dull moment.

I will try my email again.

Love,
Jeanne

:) The nail polish! I keep laughing at that. :) I used to play school with my stuffed animals and would hang their work and my "classroom" decorations on my bedroom wall with toothpaste. :) I love the idea of nail polish-painted toys in the middle of the night. :)
