A Miniature Doll House For Sweet Cheeks

I received this sweet package for 
SweetCheeks a few weeks ago.
With a new baby on the horizon I had to wait
until after the birth of Bright Eyes to give this to
Sweet Cheeks.

WHERE did this delightful bit of childhood sweetness come from?
Well, I met one of the dearest, 
most incredible bloggers
and connected with her on a level beyond
"oh-how pretty is that"!
It is Kim over at Musings From Kim K.
Kim has a sweet little girl named Josie.
Josie is the same age as our SweetCheeks
and is just a dear little girl.
So, Kim, out of the goodness of her heart
gifted SweetCheeks with this 
DARLING LITTLE DOLL HOUSE!
Look At This!!!!
Thank you SOOO much, Kim!
You are such a doll and so kind.
 Is this one of the cutest things you have ever seen?
Look at the window boxes!
Here are more snippets.
I knew SweetCheeks would love it but
what amazed me was the number of  HOURS she 
spent playing with it -all by herself.
See the little bunny packaged with the doll?
She fashioned a
GARDEN CHAIR & TABLE
for the bunny to be outside in the "garden".
Wouldn't it be fun if 
Josie & SweetCheeks could 
actually play together?
Are they cute or what?
Sweet Cheeks wanted to know ALL about Josie.
We looked her up on Kim's blog 
and read the story of her adoption.
SweetCheeks went from sad to happy 
hearing her story.
Then she went back to the dollhouse.
She played  with it for hours and hours..
All of a sudden it hit her.
She had a troubled look on her face.
SC: Nana!  There's a problem here!
Me:  What's that SweetCheeks?
SC: How will Santa get down that chimney?
Me:  Santa can come in through the window 
if he needs to.
SC:  Oh!  I was worried about that!
Me:  No worries there!
Me:  You know what I am worried about, SweetCheeks?
SC:  What, Nana?
Me:  I'm worried about how I am 
ever gonna fit in that bed.
SC:  Now THASS a BIG problem, Nana, 
cuz you are WAY too big and that bed 
is WAY too small.
Me:  Well, maybe I can be magic, too.
SC:  Nana! I don't think even the BEST MAGIC will work
for THAT cuz it only works if you are young!
Me:  Don't you think I'm young?
SC:  (thinking about it)- Nana?
Me:  Yes, Sweet Cheeks?
SC:  Do you remember when Noah 
landed the ark?
Me:  Yes- I was right there with the donkeys when they were unloaded.
SC:  (seriously)  Oh!  Did all those animals smell bad when they got off?
Me: I have NO answer for that.
SC:  Well, I bet Papa knows.
Do you know which 'partment HE was in?
Me: No.
SC:  I bet they had in a special 'partment
so he wouldn't eat any of the animals
cuz there were only two of each.
Me:Well, that certainly answers some of 
MY QUESTIONS!

Leave it up to a kid.
I no longer have to wonder what 
happened to some of our "pairs".

And now, as Paul Harvey would say,
 you know the rest of the story!

  12. What a wonderful, thoughtful gift! I loved dollhouses when I was little. Whenever I go to Hobby Lobby, I usually stroll by the miniature doll house furniture section. I love seeing all the accessories they have now days. I'd love to decorate a doll house some day. :) Sweet Cheeks will get lots and lots of play time with hers. Lucky girl!

  35. What a sweet and adorable gift Kim sent you! Isn't she the best? She's one of the first people I "met" here in blog land, and she is just so nice. Not to mention super creative! I bet SweetCheeks was so excited!! Make's me wish I was a little girl again (as long as I would never have to grow up!). Bet SC and Josie would have a blast together. And that is too funny about SC and your ark story!!

  36. Well, at least you know Papa is the bad guy! LOL Or at least the one accused. She never thought YOU were guilty of eating any animals.

  37. Precious doll house!!! What a kind gift. I love the details in that cute little bed and the rest of the house and all. Wow, such talent! It would be so wonderful if the four of you could meet up someday!

  48. You know I love miniatures, especially little houses! That little house is totally wonderful and I can see why SC did not want to stop playing with it. She is an absolute little doll herself, little Sweet Cheeks! I agree that there are some really good people in Blog Land and this just goes to show how true that is!

    This is a great post, Diana, and I enjoyed every smidgen of it!

  50. Someday I really would love to get our two special little girls together. If I could give everyone a special little dollhouse I would. Keep on loving life and playing, Diane. Hugs to all your sweet grands.

  51. How so very sweet!...and loved the "questions and answers"....hopefully one day Sweet Cheeks and Josie can get together!..

    ReplyDelete
  52. The dollhouse is adorable. I love the questions and answers. Sitting here laughing.

    When Olivia was younger she spent a lot of time here and in my car going to her mom or dad's. We used to have the funniest conversations. One started off with me saying where did that Olivia go to, the one who used to like to do "?" . Oh, she went to Savannah. Me, really how did she get there. Her answer she rode on the top of a car and on and on. I miss those days so much. But next week is spring break. I think I will kidnap her for a couple days.

  56. Oh Diana, I love the miniature doll house. Such a wonderful gift for SweetCheeks. You know what? The girls used to have a doll house that their grandfather made them, and when they got a little older, I ended up giving it away. Now, I regret doing so, and I wish I had it again. Not sure if I told you this story or not, but when I saw the doll house, it brought back so many sweet memories. I think the funnest thing is all the miniature furniture that goes inside.

    love,
    ~Sheri

  59. Diana, that is some sweet girl you've got there! And I absolutely love her new dollhouse -- I think I* could spend hours with it myself!

    ReplyDelete
  60. This is such a sweet post. SC is so funny and really a deep thinker. However, I disagree with her for the first time ever. I think you have enough Nana magic to fit into that bed at the stroke of any midnight.
    Love to all, Ginger
