Welcome to Anybody Home!

Here you will find scattered pictures from my point and shoot camera, random thoughts from my little world, treasured memories of days gone by, hopeful dreams of the days yet to come, and a bunch of ideas - because I've always got ideas!

She Is At It Again

Over the weekend a delivery arrived at our house.

Me, being me, was most excited about the box it came in!

And the wad of brown paper that was stuffed into it!

On Monday we used the brown paper for a road, a river, and something to run on just to hear the sound it made.


And the box was a doll house, a bed, and a jack-in-the-box!

Today as I was removing it from the living room, I got an idea.

I get those sometimes.

It seemed possible that if I made a few cuts here and there, folded some flaps around, glued down a bit of scrapbook paper, I just might be able to turn it into something for our beloved American Girl dolls.
So I present to you, in horrible lighting as it is in my basement, my attempt at making an American Girl doll lemonade stand.

This was the only picture I could get of the inside of it.  This will need some finishing.  I think Famke will enjoy doing this part, and adding the food and dishes.
It's all cardboard and paper, so who knows how long it will last. but it seems to serve the purpose.  I
cannot tell you how badly I now want to make a beach for her to lie in the sand, and I actually DO have the sand.  But even I know that at some point, I'm just going to have to stop this.
(Maybe.  Maybe I know this.  But then again, maybe not.)

I "get" you. I really do.
How's your headache, by the way?
