Dream Dollhouse Project

Once upon a time, I was this little girl who wanted to collect miniature things for her little friends. Tiny tables and chairs, mini cars, mini sofas and bed but a dollhouse to be exact.
Yes, it's one of my favorite playthings even up to this time and I still consider myself a toy-lover despite my 20-something age. I have this thought before that having a dollhouse is a perfect thing to have in the world (I think kids can understand that). But you know what, I didn't have one growing up and I still want it not for me but for my little girl, Janine!

I am not sure if she would love to have it but I want her to have one someday.
It's actually on my to do list because I don't want to buy her a ready-made dollhouse because I think that's too expensive and if you don't know, I'm somewhat like a thrifter type of gal!
and I think... a DIY dollhouse is a lot more fun to play (and your kids will surely appreciate your effort when they get older).

Actually, I am still hunting for more dollhouse design ideas and I have seen many of them on Pinterest and some other blogs including Erin's blog, where she posted about "making a doll house" parts 1 to 4.

Another blog that also inspired me was this dollhouse project from Megan of Mouse House.

Young Love

Love is a simple word yet an extraordinary emotion you could give to people around you.
When you let a little kid express how they give love to someone, they simply give you heart melting hugs and kisses.

I don't exactly know what it means to them or if they really know the meaning of love but it's the sweetest love for me (much sweeter than a husband's love *  just kidding).

I keep uttering "I love you" to my little girl but every time I do that, I don't get any response at all, so that made me think that she still can't understand the word "I love you" but when I say to her just the word "love", she hugs me so tightly (ohhh, that is so sweet).

For now, I am happy that she's still very young and she's still with me. We can still spend so many years of sharing hugs and kisses and love love love.  I know she'll grow up and sooner... for her, love will get complicated.

come here and I'll give you some love love love...
