For the Itty Bittys....

Thought you all might like to tour one of the cutest playhouses on the planet. It is the Kit Kittredge playhouse that made the rounds at different American Girl Stores in Dallas, New York and Chicago - all in the name of Project Playhouse Charity. This little jewel is approximately 8ft by 10ft and "features the same craftsmanship and quality as the real homes built by the same homebuilders." (HomeAid.org)

I love the green front door - what a warm welcome. The detail on the front is classic cottage style with its stone veneer and shingled roof. Look at the arched window - so darling.
Step inside for a quick view of the wainscoting and wood floors. The wall colors are so cheery and how fun is that robin's egg blue table? I think the typewriter, lamp and radio actually work!

The sweet bookshelf holds vintage toys and a little suitcase on top. I love the stacked hatboxes, too. Did you notice the Dutch door?


I have just the spot in my yard for this....You better believe I'd be playing in it, too!

And, girl! wow did you score on those yardsale finds. Do you know how jealous I am on the zebra chair??? Oh man, I love that & I can't believe the price. the other things are great too, but that chair is the BEST! Good shopping.

Kids???? Heck I'd move in!!! What a little dream place.

You asked about the paint color. It is a Behr paint called celery bunch. It really is a pretty shade. Now I'm off to snoop around this lovely blog. I love your wallpaper...it would match my new bath and is giving me all kinds of color ideas!!!!! I'm thinking pink and brown towels might be the way to go!

Awww... My dad built the cutest playhouse when I was 8. Even though I had two other sisters, I felt like he'd built it just for me. :-)

~ Humility ~

Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore,
To wonder at nothing that is done to me,
to feel nothing done against me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me,
And when I am blamed or despised;
it is to have a blessed home in myself
where I can go in and shut the door
and kneel to my Father
in secret and be at peace,
as in a deep sea of calmness, when all
around and about is trouble.
