Left Side: teapot and cup are removable so you can pretend you're having tea. All items in the cupboard are also removable for rearranging!
Some more random shots and crafty undertakings:

So the real question is, am I going to make these playhouses to sell? It's a possibility. I want to do one on my own and see how much time it takes. But we've come up with tons of great ideas and styles and I'd love to begin taking orders soon. Stay tuned...
So, this week I went to visit my friend in Dallas who just had a baby. (Stay tuned for the next post for cute Nolan pictures) Let me preface this story by saying that I really like to eat, but am not the world’s best cook. My friend Holly, (yes, her name is Holly too!) however, is like the next Julia Child.
Holly knows I don’t get out of my Benton bubble very often so she decided to take me to Central Market. I felt like “country has come to town!” I have NEVER seen anything like this in my life! For any of you who have never gone to a Central Market- you should put this activity on your bucket list!
First of all, this place is HUGE! You walk in and there’s a receptionist at the information counter- like a concierge or something!!! Each section of the store is enormous and full of specialty foods and stuff I would have no clue what to do with. Perhaps I was most impressed by the cheese section because I like cheese so much, but this area was bigger than the entire refrigerated section at my grocery store! A cheese-lover’s dream! They also had microphoned chefs in different sections cooking stuff- I said that reminded me of the guy at Bass Pro Shop giving fishing lessons (at this point Holly told me to keep my voice down because I was embarrassing her!). We finished our trip by grabbing some dinner- I stuck with a simple chicken salad. Holly, on the other hand, got a variety of stuff from the salad bar that I had never heard of or seen- I’m not quite sure it was even food! Maybe I should call and check on her!
When it was finally time to check out, they had some automated robot voice that told you which cashier to go to- kind of like the airport or something! Crazy!!! So now I can die happy because I’ve been to Central Market. Can’t say I’d shop there, but I’ve been!
