What is a Contingency?

  In my last blog I discussed what Pending means in Real Estate and I stated:   Anytime I say Pending, it means the house is under contract. Either with a contingency or not, the house is more than likely going to another buyer. It's just a matter of time until it closes and the new homeowner will be moving in. So what is a contingency?  Well a contingency in a contract is anything that must be first met to allow the sale to continue in the manner in which the contract was written. Most contracts have standard contingencies to include a home inspection, a financial contingency and an appraisal contingency. Other contingencies could include a home sale.  Home Inspection Contingency: This contingency allows the buyer to preform a home inspection (all home inspectors in the state of Virginia must have a license) and the buyer has the opportunity to ask for repairs in order for the contract to move forward. Sellers at this time can a couple of things. Repair all items Repair some it

The Dollhouse Exhibit at The Dewitt Museum

The entire museum is underground except this spot where the sun comes through the windows. We have been waiting years for this exhibit to come back. The Dollhouses have been missing from here for almost five years. When I heard they were back we had to go. Here until 2017, yes, that long, you should go see them.

Amazing small architectural pieces built for kids. The girls are much older now and still enjoyed the exhibit but when they are younger they seem so much larger. The dollhouses are large but you know how when you are small everything seems so much bigger. We had a nice time and met up with a friend of mine and her kids. 

They types of furniture that has survived the years is gorgeous. 

Listening to they many different types of instruments that have been made over the years. They all look beautiful with orignal wood, never painted. 


The detail to these dollhouses are crazy!

Had to demolish the house to get the dollhouse out? Amazing!

One of the coolest rooms in the museum. 

The black and white version of this photo is on my Instagram. This guy is a vinyl. (Not a vin-el as my teen told me how it was pronounced. )

You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

Why did I never have this as a child? Mom?



We love China. 
Fun in the elevator.

  1. I've heard of this in passing BUT OMG!!!! THIS IS AMAZING!! My cousin growing up had the most detailed dollhouse I have EVER seen. She was 16 years older than I was and I was NEVER allowed to touch it or play with it. Which at the time I was like what's the point? But it's crazy to see the detail that people have put into doll houses!! I think it's awesome you guys got to go to this. Looks like everyone enjoyed themselves :)
