Toasting Marshmallows in the Kitchen

What’s going on here?  My two youngest are toasting marshmallows in the kitchen over a candle.
“It’s okay,” they said, “daddy’s been letting us do this all afternoon.”
(Don’t worry.  They’re well supervised.)

My two littlest were chatting and carrying on as if around a real campfire, but without all the hassle.
Carry on!

Doll House Accessories

When you go thrift store shopping, always look at things with an eye for what they could be in your doll house.  Crocheted pot holders make great doll house blankets.

This is a nice, crocheted pot holder but look how warm it keeps Strawberry Shortcake!

Trivets made from various textiles make great rugs!

This bright yellow trivet makes a great rug in our doll house.

The great thing is that most things like this only cost about a quarter.  It does not have to be expensive to have a great doll house.  Teach your daughter to bargain shop for her doll house just like we bargain shop for our real houses!
