Remember last week I mentioned that I am making the mid-century modern credenza by Dilly Dally Dollhouse? Well, it’s all finished and I love the way it turned out.
I decided to share it with my family. Some of you know that we are spread among four western states plus Florida. When I complete a project I think they would enjoy, I share it through text or email. At first I “let” my dollhouse dolls help with the projects to make it entertaining for my grandchildren. Now, my grandchildren are much older and the Fruity Girls don’t always help, but this week they were featured in a text message to the group. I thought what ensued was pretty fun so I decided to share the exchange with you.
The Fruity Girls go retro. RL, close your mouth, you’re drooling 😉.
My sister, KS, responded – That reminds me of Grandma’s living room furniture. Nicely done. My daughter, KL, agreed.
My daughter in law, RL, jumped in as I predicted – Omg!!! Wait…. that is my credenza!! I have the exact same credenza in my bedroom!
I added, Lol! I knew you had one of that sort, but didn’t remember the exact design.
RL – How did the Fruity Girls get the same credenza?
RL – Almost the same. 🙂 Did they see the same ad on Craigslist?
KL – Laughed at “Almost the same. 🙂 Did they see the same ad on Craigslist?”
KL – Emphasized “Omg!!! Wait…. that is my credenza!! I have the exact same credenza in my bedroom!”
My other daughter, EL – Loved “Omg!!! Wait…. that is my credenza!! I have the exact same credenza in my bedroom!”
Me – Life imitates art 🤗.
Sister in law, BN, That picture outside the window looks like our Washington DC home. Brings back happy memories. Is it?
Me – Yes. I needed an appropriate view and thought your old neighborhood would be perfect 🤗.
BN – It is 🥰perfect.
Other sister-in-law, TN – Your brother said that chair looks a lot like a chair in Grandma’s house.
KS had a photo handy and tossed it in.
TN – Loved an image
KL – That’s not your brother is it?
Me – Lol! If not him, then who? Yes, it’s my brother.
KL – I think he looks pretty good!
Me – He was cute 😊.
TN – He still is!
Back to the twin credenzas … Me – That is spooky. The design for the credenza is from Rita, who lives not far from you, RL. 🤗
Me – Here are her designs. She also suggests drawers. I just combined the options.
RL – That is soooooo cool!! Gonna check out her site.
Me – I love her simple designs. This chair is also by Rita. The fabric is from KL’s shop, and Granddaughter did the painting.
RL – 😍❤️ All in the family
I never expected our family group to find so many favorites and memories to share, but It is fun to have something to “chat” about when we can’t all get together. How about you? How do you share your projects?
