Chit-Chat Wednesday and Dollhouse Blues

I'd like to live inside my daughter's dollhouse
drinking endless cups of gingery tea
composing spidery fairytales in thumb-sized books
to read to my daughter when she played with me
all my problems would be miniature
and fit on a china saucer and plate
in a world that's flowery, cozy, and pink
I could daydream amongst my doll friends
and have ample time to be and think

  1. Ah! If only! Life can be so complicated at is good to have an escapism! :) xxx

  2. Hi! Just been catching up on all of your posts: These are little nuggets of stories unfolding ... I am there behind you following your adventures ...

    Taking ballet classes: Well done you!

    Poet's Corner:

    'A town where crime never happens ... until it does.' There's your tag line!!!!! Can't wait to read your book because you have a distinctive style that I just know will make your book magical.

    You say your first draft came easy ... this is good?? I was having a conversation with my adult son and I told him I found writing a novel difficult. (I have never written a novel before in my life). He thinks if I find it difficult then it is not worth doing. I do not know where he gets his logic from.

    Best of luck with everything. Love your writing as always; especially todays gingery tea, thumb sized books and problems so small they fit onto a dolly's china saucer and plate. xx

  3. Very sweet, Josephine, and brings back such a feeling of innocence...*sigh*

  4. How I wish we could all live in such a world:)

  5. hehe i know the feeling ;0) a little world where only fun things happened surrounded by pretty faces and sweet cups! x

  6. such a beautiful post josephine! we all need some gentle respite sometimes. wishing you more snatched pockets of time to be and think. x

  7. To eat some of the penguin and then not eat the whole of it - impossible!!! xxx

  8. Ooooh, I love this post. I'd like to live in a dollhouse, too, in a pretty fairy glen and my best friends would be snails and wrens. :) My husband and I both concur that anything small is cuter!

  9. My daughters dollhouse is a favourite play pastime. We have hours of fun with it. I love this post.

  10. Oh can I live there with you? It sounds delightful! Thank you so much for your kind comments on my blog- I appreciate it more than you know xo

  11. Hello Josephine

    Oh how that idea appeals to me too! A pretty little neat house where all your troubles or worries would evaporate. I remember very clearly as a child looking at my dolls house and praying that in the night I could be magically made little so that I could join them.
    I obviously didn't pray hard enough...;-)
    Hope since you are progessing well.
    Warm wishes
    Isabelle x
