      That’s so funny – don’t we all wish we had our Silhouettes sooner? I wish that I had it when I was planning my wedding. I would have gone cra-zy with the cut-outs! 🙂

    This is just the sweetest thing ever. Love the idea to prompt make-believe & the shapes are adorable with all the details you’ve added!

    Oh my gosh, I want to come over and play with you and your girls! I can tell they have such vivid imaginations and a wealth of creativity (hmmm…wonder where they get that from?). In fact, I think I’m coming down with the stuffies right now. Might be time for a road trip up north! Ha ha. But seriously, how wonderful that you have really celebrated that in them by taking the time to create these professional looking signs! Mom of the Year goes to…Tara!

      Oh, we’d definitely welcome you right into the Suburble Veterinary Clinic! If only Canada wasn’t so far away for you! 😉 Thank you so much for the compliments. It’s a lot of fun to create these things for the girls. And the expressions on Lila’s face during her first time playing with the signs was worth all of the effort of making them!

    This is so adorable. What a great use for that strange board. I think you’ve inspired 100s to add a strange board to their own playhouse. Really brilliant!

      Wouldn’t that be hilarious, if people started adding rogue pieces of wood to their playhouses!?!? (Who knows? Maybe I’ll end up adding another? 😉 )

    That is WAY too darn cute Tara! I LOVE it!! And I’m sure your girls do too. What a cute little house, and now it has the perfect signs to go with it. Our girls also liked playing Library and School. The great thing is, it’s so easy and inexpensive to add more signs if they think of other things. And boy, do I know what you mean about the cash register….we had to have two as well!! Such a cute post and a great project. Thanks for sharing in the Silhouette Challenge!

      They have been having lots of fun with the signs. I think that they’re getting the most use out of the cafe sign so far – lots of dirt dinners have been served to me! 😉

    Nice to ‘meet’ you, Tara! (My Favorite ‘place’ in literary history!) We had a Playhouse for my children on our huge property in MI and it looked quite similar to yours, only white… I hope they remember the good, creative times there – and that Yours do, also! Lovely idea for the signs – ;-}

      It’s just as nice to meet you too, Lynden! Lots of people remember “Tara” from Gone With The Wind when they read my name. I pronounce it with a hard “a” though, and most people read my name and say “Tah-rah” before I correct them. So funny how it stays in peoples’ minds!

      The girls have been loving the playhouse – I love hearing about other children having years of play from their playhouses of yesteryear. It reinforces my desire to jazz up the playhouse with even more projects!
