A text message earlier this summer

Flipping my mini house

My friend and her husband were at a flea market when they spotted two dollhouses. My friend was pretty sure I would find them enchanting so she sent me some texts with photos attached. She was right.

“Buy the Brady Bunch one and I’ll pay you back!” I told her. It was just $35!

The next weekend she and her husband delivered it. (How’s that for service?) He didn’t look happy; it is VERY heavy and was covered in spiderwebs, mouse poop, and who knows what else. I, however, was delighted. It was even better than the picture! It might have been dirty, but as they say in real estate talk, It had good bones. Here are some photos from our first day together:
