A Whole Lotta Love

 I was so inspired by this, found at  Daisy's Are My Favorite Flower, that I just had to make my own!  Her hearts are so lovely and romantic with cursive stitching no less!

I created a swag across my stairway railing using red and pink tulle.  Then, I tied the swags off with a tulle bow and attached the felt hearts at the center.  I really enjoyed working with the felt.  It's great stuff since it doesn't wrinkle or unravel (unlike some other fabrics that will remain nameless!)  And since it's so inexpensive what's not to love??

Adding more love into my home, my parents came to visit us this weekend and they brought me this dollhouse.  My dad, a hobby woodworker, put it together for me.  My hubby bought it as a kit for me many years ago and I gave up assembling it after a few attempts.  I just knew that fabric and yarn were more of my thing!  My dad said he enjoyed putting it together and it's so much more meaningful being made by him.

The interior, however, is still unfinished (that's where I come in!)  It looks a bit rough with the unfinished floors and walls.  But, I had some used dollhouse furniture in some boxes that were just a whole lotta fun to arrange inside this quaint little country victorian!

My favorite find was an antique sewing machine (on the dresser) and a sewing basket complete with working scissors!   It sort of felt like moving day setting up the furniture!  Oh, I am imaging all sorts of possibilities to soften and dress up the rooms.

It was wonderful to be with my parents as well as "play" with my new dollhouse.

Your Love banner is beautiful! I am so glad you made one to. :) Felt is fun to work with, isn't it? And, the picture of your daddy and mama with you is soooo cute! Your doll house is going to be so much fun to decorate and put together. Can't wait to see what you do to it. Have a wonderful day! :)

I agree your banner is great, I am sure that everyone enjoyed it as much as you enjoyed making it. The wreath is awesome too.

The doll house turned out great and I was so pleased to see that you used my two "babies" in one of the rooms. :)

I sure am enjoying you blog, hope you can continue to do it. I like to go into the other blogs that you highlight too. Fun to see the creativity with all of these folks.
