Hello Everyone, I have been off the internet for a few days - my cable went out - but am back now and will be catching up with all your comments. Thank you so much for leaving them.
One of the items I have always enjoyed on display in the visitor center, is the doll house replica of Mount Vernon.
The roof is mechanized and when it is lifted you can get a better view of the miniature furnishings. The roof lowered in place as I was looking at it, and this is the first time I had ever been aware that the roof could be raised and lowered. An impressive doll house and what I would have given for something like this as a child.
There were only two of us looking at the doll house. The other onlooker was a young girl around ten years’ old. Her father and brothers looked at it briefly and moved on. However, the young girl and I were mesmerized. She pointed out one of the tiny bowls on a table. I smiled and asked her if she had a doll house at home. She answered yes. I told her how wonderful, that I didn’t when I was her age but have always liked them, and was happy she had one. We chatted for a few minutes while we were looking. I could have honestly continued but I was called away by ‘the boys’ (aka hubby and brother-in-law who wanted to continue the tour).
It appears I am still in touch with my inner child.
I am joining the following memes as they become available. Thank you Tom, N.C. Sue and Linda Kay for hosting.
