Okay, so this house ended up in the Wylde Kingdom because a nice lady called Norm's and said she had a house she needed to find a home for.
The house had been built about 30 years ago by her mother and father, when they decided they needed a project to do together.
It took them about 5 years to finish.
Her mom loved this house, and she traveled all over the world to find beautiful things to put in it.
Sadly, he mom passed away a while ago. The house came all the way here from North Carolina, but all of the furnishings were stolen on the way here. The daughter has had it in her garage for a while, but is now moving to a 1 bedroom apartment, and can't take the house with her. She was so sad to let it go.
She said she couldn't just sell it on Craigslist to a stranger, and not know what would happen to it. She couldn't give it to a thrift store. So she called Norm's because she figured they'd know just the right home for the house.
And did they.
So we've been calling it "The Equinox House" because it moved in on the Equinox and changed everything (more about that later), but we're going to get a little metal plaque made for it that says "JoAnne's Place" and put it by the front door. Like a historical marker. It just seems like the right thing to do.
So back to the tour, then.

My sister, Juno, is finally getting a house.
Wendy and her buddy Megan are building it together, even though the Butterflies Attic and the Wylde Kingdom are on different sides of the U.S. from each other.
Anyway, if you want to see their building progress (neither one of them has ever tried building a dollhouse with someone who isn't even in the same state with them before, so this could be interesting) you can see their brand new, shiny, blog here -

Tomorrow, I'll post part three of my tour of JoAnne's Place. But I had to tell you Juno is getting a house, first. She's pretty excited, and I'm excited for her.
