Small But Mighty

To all those who have made the most of their quarantine by doing, learning or creating something awesome, I salute you. While I’ve fully embraced the “surviving is thriving” mentality (managing to put on non-elasticized pants at least once a week is a win, right?!), I have endless admiration for those who have instead gone down a different path. Case in point: the Missouri couple who created a super cool, hyper-realistic “mini modern house” complete with running electricity (hello, working garage door!), impeccable retro 70s décor and impossibly intricate detailing from rugs, to tiles, to toys, to furniture.
Started as an unassuming pet project by a retired interior designer and her husband, the house began making waves on social media when the couple’s son posted images of their stunning creation on Twitter, noting that the artistry was something that the world needed to see (boy was he right!). Humbled and surprised by the overwhelming attention to their pleasing pastime, the couple admirably decided to use their newfound fame for good by encouraging donations to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America via the new Instagram account they created to chronicle their journey of creating their miniature marvel.
It’s often entertaining when something “goes viral” (looking at you, lawyer cat), but these days it’s extra enjoyable when that something is just simply pure, sweet and happy – no matter how big or small.
