Hobbies are like sparkling diamonds in the crown of life.
It's really true that it's impossible to be bored when one has hobbies. During the years when I worked full time, it was hard finding extra minutes for leisure but I tried my darndest. Now, between jobs, time is still at a premium.
However, probably one of my favorite hobbies is doll house miniatures. Whenever I find something of interest for this little pink abode, which stands in our dining room, I love buying it and then adding to the decor.
Actually, there are two more doll houses in other parts of the house, both of which need electrical wiring and major revamping. I'm always hopeful the time will come when I can start working on them. When completed , there will be a little doll house neighborhood around here. Right now, I'm hoping to find some electrical wiring kits that are not too expensive.
Imagine how thrilling it was when I came across a tiny dolly that was actually meant to be a Christmas tree decoration. Still in a small box, I found her on a thrift store shelf. The price was $3.98, a trifle steep, but I bought her anyway.
A string attached to her head, to enable hanging from a tree branch, got snipped.
She's very tiny, no more than three inches tall, but she's dressed to the gills in pink and white lace. She even has teeny tiny pink shoes. Her dark brown hair is long and curly.
She now sits in the dining room doll house nursery with her cousins.
