This post warm’s my heart.
Juliet asked her Pa if he could help make her a couch and bed for her dollhouse that she had resurrected from the shed over the school holidays. Pa and Grandma invited her down for a sleepover and they wasted no time in making her requests with her watching over eagerly and full of excited squeals as she watched Pa create her drawings.
Grandma helped her create cushions, bed spread (out of Stevens Smurf pillowcase from when he was a young boy) and table clothes with sewn in doilies ^_^ Oh and don’t forget the individually glued on magazine covers on the 10c piece sized books for her bookshelf. There is also a full bathroom, kitchen, fish tank and iPod holder for her dolls to watch tv with.
Every morning I have been woken by Juliet giggling away in her bedroom making movies with the iPod of her dolls in their house..
There are more moments lately that I can see she is growing up and I worry she will be too cool for school soon, but witnessing her innocent, beautiful, creative imagination at play with her old doll house makes my heart do backflips and know she will be just fine <3
