Anesama ningyoo means "elder sister doll" in Japanese. There is a deep history to these paper dolls. In the Japanese feudal society, the common people were stuck within the social class in which they were born. These dolls were a way for young girls of the lower social classes to be a part of those other classes even if only through child's play. Most times, these anesama ningyoo were made by the elder sisters or women of the families. That is where the name originates. These dolls originally were made of various materials ranging from wood to rags. Eventually paper was used and chiyogami (Japanese paper covered with colorful patterns) allowed girls to have a wider array of kimonos for their dolls.
Enjoy some of my pictures

Yippie, the fence is finally here, way over budget, but well worth the wait and the money.
Here is a picture of the house with the New brickwork and Fence.
The front yard has 8 pillars. Matching brick pillar, and eventually the chimney will be redone with the same brick.
We had the railing custom made from graybar metalworks, a custom color powder coating.
the front of the house is not finished yet, we still have some more work to do, but needed the fence to protect the dogs.
When it cools down we will get back to more work, but for now enjoy the fence,
I am so proud of my son, his brickwork is fantastic.

It has been a year since I updated my blog, life has just gotten in the way.
The short version, in the past 2 years I have moved, changed jobs, husband changed job, husband now works out of town, and did I say I changed jobs... hummmmmmm,,,, in more ways than one.
And on top of that I am trying to decorate this house, now on my own. My $1000.00 fence is now going to cost $5000 and counting,,, but it will be fun to post it here on my decorating with Dee Blog.
Bit by bit you will see the transformation!
This weeks project,, the attack of the Laundry Room.
This week I will strip the old wallpaper, repaint, tile, and add some ZEST!
I bought a new washer and dryer! The focal point.
What fun, who said Laundry Sucks. I have to say it is nice to just do Laundry for one.
Ron is like the boyfriend that comes over on the weekends with his dirty laundry.
Drinks his beers, plays with his dogs, plays with his wife, gets his laundry done, and POOF! he goes.
So my therapy,,,, a funky laundry room!

I took a class this week on how to make these adorable little boxes
to put pictures and notes in. What fun , with 4 pieces of 12x12 paper.
These will be a gift for todays party at a friends. One if for the birthday boy, he can put pictures of his grandsons in it. One is for a young girl 10 years old, that I quite adore who will be at the party.
And the other is for the hostess of the party, and it is filled with photos of her grandson. I got the pictures off her daughters Facebook page.
