McKenna's House of Liquor

   At the risk of looking like a big old lush, I'm going to admit that one of my favorite Christmas presents to receive is a fancy gift set containing a bottle of liquor and glassware. This year, Erik got me a bottle of Chivas Regal Scotch Whiskey, aged 12 years, that came in a box with 2 funky-shaped rocks glasses. Even the box was deluxe - it had 3 windows and a swing door with a magnetic latch. We couldn't just throw it out.

 McKenna said she wanted to keep it so it could be a house for her dolls but I didn't think it would look right for her to have an empty liquor box laying around her room, so we decided to paint it. First, I covered the windows in sticker paper and spray painted it yellow.


Then, she painted it.

She added trees and flowers on the sides and windows and a door on the back and her signature smiley sunshine on the front.

And the Polly Pockets quickly moved in.

It makes a nice hamster house too. (You can follow the adventures of our hamster Mr.Goomba Roo on facebook:

I'm teaching a new series of craft classes for kids this semester. Liquor box dollhouses probably won't be one of them. Some crafts are best kept within the family.

I bet you could pull off liquor box dollhouses if you painted the first layer for the kids. Just a thought...

ROFL! Caught my younger son playing with a toilet paper tube kazoo on Christmas Day, some of his presents untouched... That booze house is fantastic!!

Ha, unfortunately booze houses are expensive. If only cheap beer came in fancy boxes.

on the video to make your point. You obviously know what
youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on
just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's both educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.

The issue is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.

I'm very happy I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for
my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having trouble finding one?
Thanks a lot!
