Lately I am relearning how to sleep and rediscovering music.
I am ordering shoes, clothes and decor for the store,
visiting trade shows and planning our livingroom make-over.
I have learned that selling one's old gold jewelry is alot easier
than getting rid of an old couch - unless you're giving it away.
And I have learned that one apparently is never too old for dolls...
At Christmas my mother asked me to go through my old Barbie stuff
and take home the things I didn't want my three little nieces to play with.
I grabbed some old favorite dolls, thinking I would stuff them in a drawer
and forget about them. Instead they awoke the 10-year-old in me :)
Inspired by Ms Insomniac's four-season room, I converted an old
mini-greenhouse/hotbed into an Eastern/Asian Barbie lounge,
And I have a not-so-secret fantasy about making a Halloween doll house...
I made some hippie style garments for my old 'Barbie and the Rockers' dolls
and (don't tell anyone, but...) I spent hours on their hair and jewelry.
Somewhat on the topic; for Valentine's Day we are entertaining
my two eldest nieces with an Arabian nights themed sleep-over.
I've gotten us some saree fabric and made us bindis,
and I put together a cozy tent for the livingroom.
We're thinking spaghetti and hot dogs, jewelry making, Frozen and Brave,
no-bake baking, blowing freezing bubbles and playing Pokémon (cards).
And then they can sleep under a velvet canopy with glittering stars.
I hope they'll enjoy it, it's their first sleep-over with us!
What are you guys up to for Valentine's?
