The Thornhill Tool Cabinet, The Sad Lives Of Past Mini Projects, And More

Some time ago I saw on someone’s blog (I wish I remembered whose!) about a creative soul that had repurposed an old dollhouse and used it to store laundry supplies (I think it was laundry supplies!). Well, I guess I am also good at repurposing. See my Thornhill tool cabinet:

Okay, I confess, it’s just plain sad. I bought this kit sometime in the 1990’s after completing the Beacon Hill Greenleaf kit (which is now covered in cobwebs – haunted mansion anyone?).

I had high hopes for doing a proper 18th Century Virginia house. Then I raised children and dogs and cats and there you go. Sometimes I think about selling it. But it is not really a kit nor is it a full house. Yikes.

Am I the only one that has dollhouses around that got neglected  for new and more exciting projects?

The weather has been a bit gloomy here of late so I was tickled to see this little flower on an impatiens plant I brought in to overwinter in the house.
