WOYW this W? A little renovation work...
About 15 years ago my daughter played with this Sesame Street "doll-house". It has some little furniture pieces and some SS figurines of Bert, Ernie, Big Bird, and Snuffleupagus. It was stored in an old shed when she outgrew it and it got pretty filthy over the intervening years.
I've been scrubbing on it and it's fairly clean, but the inner walls, which were made of thin cardboard decorated with illustrations, had to be torn out.
I'm planning to use the old cardboard pieces as templates to cut out some new pieces from cereal boxes, which are about the right thickness. Then I'm going to find pictures from children's books, photocopy them and glue them onto the cardboard. It's challenging to find pictures that really work for this, but that's part of the fun! When I'm finished it will be ready for grand-girls, Audrey and Hazel to play with. :)
So that's what's on my workdesk! (Or, rather, strewn all over the place!) To see more desks around the world go to Julia's Stamping Ground!
