Happy Family House makeover
Today I finished the cutting of the upper floor for the makeover of the Happy Family dollhouse I bought at the doll show back in February for $10. After receiving Bedtime Chrissy and Barbie, I knew that that crib had to go in this house. They just belong together. So baby Chrissy and Barbie also got name makeovers as well- Barbie became Christy and Chrissy became Baby Ruth. Christy's husband has been traveling and has not arrived yet with the rest of their belongings- they are new to Barbietown. (I have not decided who Christy's husband will be!) Poppy, a long time friend of Christy and who she is planning on asking to be her Matron of Honor at her wedding, had come by to check in on her and Ruthie and see if she needed anything. I think a story is in the making and hopefully one diorama story will be up soon.
I have not yet thought of room divisions as of yet. But this house is proving to be alot of fun with just some simple materials and what I have on hand. More later- Lisa
