Jenny's daughter Abby had a sweet, hidden dollhouse (for paper dolls) in the family kitchen, but who wouldn't like to have a second home, at least for weekends and holidays? Here's a glimpse of another of Abby's dollhouses, this one hidden away in a built-in bookcase.My younger sister's bedroom closet had built in shelves and we frequently dumped everything off them to turn it into our version of Barbie's Dream House Condominium and I bet you have some shelves at your house you could sacrifice, at least for a little while, to become a dollhouse.
Abby has been furnishing hers and fixing it up this summer - see the cute rooms on her mom's blog, Dinner: A Love Story (which I hope you're all reading anyway because it's fantastic.)
