I have probably collected 'way too many beds. I have
several more, but haven't dressed them because I never did the wiring on the San Franciscan house or any of
the other houses where they were supposed to go. Matter of fact, I have gotten rid of both houses because they made me feel guilty and took up too much room. Plus, I just learned that I am not a dollhouse person; I am mostly a storyteller.

I should start giving beds as gifts; let somebody else
worry about where to put them!
