      • You know they have beautiful castles, cities (Paris) that adults can build. If I had the time and a good space, I might just try to build something.

        My mother loved doll houses and bought one for the grandkids.They had no interest in it, so she started decorating it with things she would find at antique shops. It’s amazing what she would find. To make my Dad laugh, she found a small picture frame to go above the small fireplace. She took picture out and put a picture of my Dad there as if it were a portrait. SO FUNNY.

        Then our Italian friends sewed a small table cloth for dining table, darling pillows for the sofa, and the cutest curtains too.

        Being creative… well, it is FUN!
