Playhouse Midgy

Marguerite and I are currently working on a project and it's halfway done, voilà!

She loves those little playhouses, but it's not practical for us to get one. Anyway, my mom recently bought a washing machine to replace her old one that was submerged (or maybe it floated, I'm not really sure) in the flood. I asked her to save the box for me so I can make a playhouse for Marguerite and it has been a hit so far. Even with just the structure and no paint yet, she already loved cozying up inside with her stuffed toys and books. Last night, I got the painting part out of the way and today I'm working on the little accents that will make the thing more attractive. I'll post more pics when it's finished. Right now, it's still a work in progress.

Btw, sorry to nag, but I'd like to remind you to visit Marguerite's photo blog this entire month of October. Comments would be greatly appreciated too (also so I'd know that you visited and I could thank you accordingly ;p). I update it regularly so there's a new pic to see everyday. The following are just a few that I've already posted:

- Dangly Earrings

- Midge's Trattoria

- Fall Colors Paper Chain

What fun! Appliance boxes are great. I remember being about 4 and having a big box. I would lie in it flat and roll down the small hill behind our house. It took a lot of abuse before finally coming apart.

Thanks for stopping by, Sharkbytes. Now rolling down a hill in a box sounds loads of fun! Nothing beats the imagination of a child. :)
