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.

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.
