My Dollhouse!

When my Dad died last month, I felt like I lost a big part of myself.Thankfully, he left me with two significant heirlooms to cherish and remember him by.One is a handmade steelstring guitar that he and I designed together, with inlay up the fretboard taken from a drawing that I created.The second is a homemade dollhouse that he built for me when I was six or seven.  It needs a ton of work, but I'm hoping to clean it up and have it ready for my daughters to play with in the next couple of years....more

DonorsChoose Challenge: Welcome to the Dollhouse

Many years ago, I babysat for the children of a pair of holistic healers. They had a small office at their house where they provided herbal remedies, homeopathic medications, and therapy. The first night that I babysat, their nine-year-old daughter gave me a tour of the house, including their office. "Are you sure we're supposed to be in here?" I asked, scanning their bookshelves. "Of course," said the little girl, leading me towards an empty dollhouse. "I play in here all the time. See, they even have a dollhouse. Do you want to set it up?" ...more
