A certain 2 year old has decided that we need a few little finishing touches around the place.

Our oak floor was so passe; the dining table needed a shabby chic effect; and well a girl has to decorate her own house too - so the postman knows where to call of course.  Confused?  Let me elucidate...STICKERS.  They are bloomimg everywhere!  I did draw the line at the wall - not physically of course, we mustn't draw on walls - but as Grandad quite likes the new additions they will stay for the time being.

On the floor...

"Butterfly House"

The last pic is actually C's current 'playhouse', a C-sized cardboard box with a bubblewrap flappy front door.  We have another HUGE box in the adjoining room which has been fashioned like a post box i.e. has a slit cut in the front and a flap at the back.  The 'postman' (sometimes me, sometimes C) collects the parcels (empty boxes - one of which is on the roof of the house) which have been posted in the postbox and delivers them to the 'Butterfly House' - so named because of the butterfly sticker.  The game was a great hit until we hit a sticky patch - C was happy to take her turn to be postman but I wasn't allowed to wait in her house!

And to think the Post Office/postman interest came about from something as simple, and clearly 2-year-old-unforgettable, as an ice lolly.

  1. Yes you are very decorated there! So cute! I get decorated sometimes too, and I don't mean my house! Once I forgot to remove them before going shopping, oops!
