Don't panic!

Well folks, Hurricane Earl is descending upon the poor people of Boston bringing....rain.

That's pretty much it. In fact, I was so confident that today's storm was going to be a bust that I went and did some hurricane junking.

The actual truth is that I needed to be away from my children for a little while. Sometimes a mother just wants her babies to leave her the hell alone.

I went over to Urban Renewals which is in so many ways, my happy place.

I was very restrained and concentrated on not filling my cart with incredible treasure worthless cast offs.

I did spot a beauty for 2.99 that I Had To Have. I mean it. It needed me like Bobby Goren needs me.

This dollhouse is about 50 years old and yet, it is in amazing condition. No rust. No dings.

I know, you may be thinking that I am developing a dollhouse obsession. And you might be right. However, this dollhouse will serve the purpose that my original dollhouse was supposed to serve.

A holder of craft supplies! I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for some cuter containers to hold things inside the dollhouse.

There you have it. Junk. Rain. Happiness.

Earl was a BIG disappointment. Thank heaven you found that dollhouse. I think I had one just like it as a kid. It's in better condition than I am.

That particular dollhouse is worth a lot of money, Sara. Look on ebay.
I had one like it in 1961, complete with plastic furniture. Great find!

I was hoping Earl would bring us cool, rainy weather, but mostly all we've gotten is a nice breeze cutting through the unbearable heat.

You and you dollhouses! I want one! I want one! I love how you've used this one. It looks a lot like the one I had when I was little.

Really cool idea for the doll house!

That dollhouse IS about 50 years old. I had one very similar when I was quite young and I'm 53 now. The roof and bow window are different, but the inside looks exactly the same. And it had pink and blue plastic furniture, but oddly no dolls.
