What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Now for a close-up tour!!!

The kitchen is the heart of the home and so is wonderfully large. I really liked the suggestion for a red and white kitchen, so red and white it became!

Notice the Coca Cola cooler? That came to us from a nickel yardsale bag of barbie stuff. Doesn't it fit perfectly? The poor baby is going to catch her death without any clothes...I'll have to get on Corynn about that! ;-)

I filled some teeny glass jars with real spices. Mustard, fennel, and poppy seeds were perfect!

While we feasted upstairs, it looks like dolls had their own Christmas feast waiting. Too bad there aren't any chairs! I made the table from some spools and a slab of wood but couldn't for the life of me figure out how to make nice looking chairs! Ah well. It will be buffet style tonight! :)

Rebecca, Corynn's dollhouse is a dream come true- It is truly amazing!!! I love all the little details you put into it to make it extra-special..I would have LOVED to have something like this when I was younger and I am so thankful to have a baby daughter so that hopefully someday she can have a dollhouse too (although hers will be nothing in comparison to this mansion!!!) You did a WONDERFUL JOB!!! :)

I love the spices. But what am I saying? The whole thing is amazing!

Rebecca, I am amazed by your creativity! And ability! If I were to even attempt something like this it would look like...well, I can't even imagine what! But this is first class! Corynn is one fortunate little girl, and she must truly love this!
