Happy Easter!

Wishing you all a Happy Easter and Beautiful Springtime!

Had fun putting some bunnies and flowers and eggs into this dollhouse that my grandfather made for my mother and her sister. Close to 100 years old because my mother was born in 1917! I'm told he also built them a playhouse in the back yard with a little bridge and they had a dog named Trixie. They lived in No. Hollywood when there were still beanfields and clear blue skies. My Grandma was an expert seamstress and made all the girls' clothes and hemmed my dresses when she lived next door to us years later. Her name was Minnie Freedom and I loved hearing stories of her childhood on their big farm in Iowa and how she ran so fast through the fields that her brothers couldn't catch her.
