HELLO and happy Friday!

Hello everyone!  I have been MIA for awhile because of my pregnancy.  Once I found out I was pregnant  April of last year and I had all the first trimester woes hit me at once.  Everything I loved to do made me nauseous, the outdoors, certain foods, and even my miniature dollhouse hobby.  It was so weird and sad at the same time.  I had to pack away and hide all my minis to keep the room from spinning.  I defiantly had an inkling that I was going to have a boy.  ;O)

Last September while cleaning out the house to make room, I pulled out all my minis and my unfinished dollhouse.  I told myself, if I don't finish it now I don't think I ever will with two boys running around.  In September I slowly started to finish my project.  I'd say it's very similar to all my other dollhouses.  Shabby chic meets french country is my main focus here.  I was going to do fall colors and give it a warm cozy feel, but I had purchased wallpaper back in April for spring.  C'est la vie.

I'm still decorating but here are a couple of pictures of the inside.  The upstairs bedroom, which is my favorite part of the house, has a shabby chic/romantic feel.  I love the picture of the wedding dress which was painted by Caroline.  The lovely chair is from Mariza Moran, which sits perfectly next to the dresser by Cynthia.  Also sweet cake by Anna and the beautiful cottage bed by Sandy.   The second picture below is a glimpse of the kitchen which I'm still working on.  I hope to post more real soon!  

Also, I had my son in November.  He's already 2 months and a whopping 14 pounds!!!  I'm proud of my big baby boy!
