Earlier this summer we spent time visiting my family and one day stopped by a dear family friend’s home for lunch and chat. To my little Munchie’s delight she had the opportunity (and what an opportunity it is for a child) to play in this custom built playhouse.
Built for our friend’s grandchildren, such care was taken in the design and execution of this precious house. The antique stained glass is from a restaurant the family owned for many years. I’m so glad they saved it from destruction and placed it in the perfect new home.
The cottage sees few children these days as our friend’s grandchildren are past prime playhouse age, but I was so touched that she faced the summer heat wave to dust and clean it for Munchie’s pleasure. I must add that it is has air conditioning. Didn’t I say such care was taken in the design?
Just as my little one is sharing her adventures with others already.
It was so very hard to say goodbye and close the door on this magical place. But I find such contentment in knowing that other little ones will soon make this cottage their “home” and carry on the tradition of carefree play and childhood merriment.
I know I would’ve spent hours upon hours in this playhouse as a child. “Pretend” was my favorite game. I hope you enjoyed our cottage playhouse tour and now would you share your favorite childhood pastime with us?
