Last Friday the grandchildren were here and got some good use out of this Swedish Lundby dollhouse I salvaged from an alley in Shadyside a few years ago. I wrote online about finding and saving and cleaning it up and a nice woman in NC I think named Terry read the story online and sent me a bunch of furniture for this particular house scale.  So cool.   It needs some work and tidying but before I put it away, I thought about how what someone truly PITCHED became a KEEPER for me.  So no vote today.  The grandchildren enjoyed it so much.  Wonder what I pitch will bring someone happiness.
