If you’ve been with me for awhile, you might remember a post I wrote four years ago about the playhouses displayed at Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto. these are not your typical playhouses but rather architect-designed models that make adults swoon. The houses are auctioned in June for the Rebuilding Together Peninsula organization, a group who refurbishes the homes of the elderly and schools and nonprofit buildings. Terry has worked with Rebuilding Together San Francisco and seen, firsthand, the good work these organizations do so we have a special place in our hearts for their fundraising.
When we visited Stanford a couple of weeks ago, this year’s playhouses had just gone up. We were delighted with this year’s offerings, which are more outlandish than previous ones. This year there is even a doghouse for those people who don’t have children.
My favorites were the Giants Baseball House and the Ice Cream Shop.
