Happy New Year!

I wish everyone a very happy 2018 and I hope it is a peaceful year with lots of love and creativity!

Here is a current shot of Waterside Way as I have started to find my furniture and put it back into Waterside Way.   (This is not the final version as I have still some more boxes to unpack.)
And as I decorated it for Christmas.

On the top floor lives a single woman.

A retired couple live on the second floor.  He is a doctor and she is a writer.  They both like to cook,  garden and travel.

On the bottom floor lives a family of four (in typical NYC style).

Here is the previous version of Waterside Way (or see via this link: http://penelopesdollhouses.blogspot.com/2014/03/waterside-way-current-interior.html)

And here is our new built-in bookcase after our renovation with three of my dollhouses proudly displayed.  (My husband designed the bookcase.)

Really, you should see the "before" picture.  I have to find it and frame it :)
 Before this, we had IKEA open shelving, and it was completely filled with books and toys with a desk in front of the bookcases that was also usually piled high with stuff (nobody ever was able to use it as a desk.)  So this is a huge improvement.  Nobody can see our mess :)  Now all the toys are in the bottom cabinets.  

Thank you so much for all your support and comments.  

 I wish you all a Happy 2018!
