A Table House for Little Folk
a cozy place for a rest. they pack it full of blankets, pillows, and an assortment of toy kitchen supplies… 
When I was 5 my best friend had a house that fit over a card table. I thought it the greatest. thing. ever. There aren’t a terribly many toys that stick out in my mind, but this is one I’ve always wanted to mimic for my own children.

peeking through the curtains.

Now-a-days there are magnificent ones available from great shops, like this one. They are truly works of art!
And recently the Artful Parent posted her creation as well & so the fire was lit.

The front door.

There’s another fire: nesting. Not only have I been relatively productive due to that unavoidable nudge from nature, there’s a lingering fear that what I don’t get done before this new baby comes I will never get done. Perhaps you hadn’t heard…babies are time consuming. So, in order to help fill the hours of time in which I won’t be able to direct my attention solely towards them, I’m working on things I think will help Naomi & Leviah remember I love them in the midst of predicted neglect…

It’s made entirely of an old sheet and other scraps I’ve had kicking about–hence the mismatchiness. I think it adds charm 😉
It feels good to accomplish something from the ‘stacks’. Now what will fill it’s place? What have you been up to?

    That is the coolest fort, EVER! My little ones have grown too large for the card table (13, 13, 11), but it may not stop me from making one for myself! Chalk one up for you! Yay you!
