About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Sweet Dreams

Felicity and Elizabeth dolls (American Girl) are being
retired at the end of December.
Elizabeth's bed is lovely (above) but quite expensive.

Jeff ordered the bedding and then made the bed and the
mattress yesterday.
Katie was the painter.:)

Here is the completed bed and one happy little girl!

I was so impressed! The bed is about $70 in the catalog
and Jeff made it for around $10.

Sweet dreams, Elizabeth...

Wonder what they will make next?

ADORABLE! I have American Girl dolls from when I was younger but they did not have all the fun accessories. :)What a great handyman you got there, and cute painter! Love, Val!

That is fabulous! Jeff could make a fortune in the doll furniture business! I love that they did this project as a team! What a great memory! That's a family heirloom now:)

Wow...they did a SUPER job!

Lori, what a beautiful bed!! It is amazing how much AG charges for these items and how inexpensively they can be made. They have to make $$ too I guess. My oldest daughter, Megan had a Kirsten doll and she had someone in the woodshop at school make her a bed and we painted and stencilled it just like the one in the catalog!

Now, that is unbelievably cool! It turned out fantastic!
