Toddler Dollhouse Dream-Come-True


When surprises come our way, life can be truly wonderful.

After looking at all kinds of models, I wanted a Fisher Price Victorian dollhouse for my little granddaughter but the price was wayyyyyy out of my budget.


Scanning Craig's List, one that was priced low showed up but it was far away from our house, in a neighboring state.



I was beginning to give up when the doorbell rang. 


It was Patti, my friend who is the Bargain Queen.

 I had sent her an email to be on the lookout for the dollhouse at yard sales and thrift shops.



What did she have in her hands? 

You guessed it!  A Fisher Price dollhouse in perfect condition!




She had purchased it years ago for her own granddaughter.

 After she received my email, she went down to her basement, looked for it and found it!



My little darling loves it and I love the generosity and kindness of  Patti!

Today on my desk at school there was a beautiful vase filled with various kinds of flowers, sunflowers, daisies, calia lilies and so forth. Also attached was a gift card to Target. What I NICE surprise when I walked into my classroom. It was from the PTF parents for teacher appreciation week.
I think your grandchild will LOVE her dollhouse..it's so cute! What a good friend Patty is.

Okay that was a great dollhouse and it great shape too. I know she will love this - I sure would!!! You are going to have to make her a playroom for all her toys.

My latest surprise were two beautiful bunnies - one pink - and I hardly have enough pink in my life - and one is a dancing bunny with aqua the perfect color to go in my room.

And I THANK YOU! THEY ARE SUCH A JOY TO ME!

Love, sandie
