A few months ago, in a fit of insanity, I agreed to decorate a doll house to be auctioned to raise funds for the renovation of the Minton-tiled kitchen at Evergreen House. A few months ago, the deadline of Thanksgiving sounded so far away. Now, however, it is right upon us. My über-talented friend, David Wiesand, proprietor of McLain-Wiesand, is also creating a dollhouse, but since he’s got a whole workshop full of amazing artisans at his beck and call, I knew he’d be the hands-down winner. So I had to think of a strategy that was both frugal and creative – just like me! (HA!)As I was drifting off to sleep a few weeks ago in a Nyquil-induced delirium, I had a semi-brilliant thought. Why not make a paper-doll house? Everything in the house will be done in paper. It’s taken me some time to really work out how to do this, but I think I finally have it!Thank god for Google and my printer! I have finished the outside and am now working on the inside decor. At least I won’t be totally mortified when I show up with my paper-doll-house. David will still win, though.
