Mrs. Plum's Lighthouse

Mrs. Plum, Head of Household for the Ash Grove Academy, lives in a lighthouse on the edge of the water. Not, mind you, that the water needs a lighthouse, as it is really just a huge pond and no ships ever come there. But Mrs. Plum wanted a lighthouse, and what she wants, she gets!

Constructed from a wonderful Real Good Toys kit, the lighthouse came into being in 2006. In it's earliest incarnation, it had a kitchen on the ground floor, a living room above that, and Mrs. Plum's office above that. With the construction of the Farmhouse, however, the kitchen was no longer needed to feed the students and staff of the AGA--and Mrs. Plum had it completely renovated. Construction still continues on the middle and top floors, but her workshop is now finished.

Shells and shell art have always been favored by Mrs. Plum, who appreciates Hitty's nautical experiences.


Her office, as it is being decorated.


Mrs. Plum often jokes that the red door leads to the Woodfolks.
At least, I think it is a joke.

And the kitchen---always a-bustle!
