Road Side Find

I've been traveling the state for the past couple of weeks, Portland to Farmington, Farmington to Portland, Portland to Presque Isle, and home again. At trails end, one street over from my own house, I found this one, its "FREE" sign beckoning my dollhouse-loving blood.
It's kind of a wreck--full of spiders and a bit smelly. But frankly, that just makes me love it more. I'll give it a good wash this afternoon and then head to the hardware store for a can of primer. Oh, the fun I'm going to have.

What an awesome find! So I don't know if you are familiar with Emily Henderson from HGTV but she is actually doing a blog challenge right now called "I'm a Giant" and it entails redecorating a doll house. Just thought you might be interested in seeing her posts about it on her blog. Here is the first one: http://www.stylebyemilyhenderson.com/blog/imagiantblog-challenge.html

Hi, Caryn--yes I did see that (following the link from Wisecraft last week). I don't feel up to taking on the challenge with so much on my plate right now, but I'm definitely following along. Fun!
