Meet our New Family Friend...

You know those people who only buy things that are functional?
I am not one of them.

After seeing this on Kate’s blog, Kate’s Creative Space…I decided our home needed some whimsy.

That’s when Beatrice moved in. hello fairy door Meet our New Family Friend...

Sure it is completely useless and just for decoration, until a little one comes over and their face lights up.  Then this little door is magic.

We went to our local craft store and picked up a dollhouse door and some hardware, painted it to match our front door, and let her move on in.

Bea got creative and wrangled up some staples for stairs until she got around to DIY’ing a ladder. Hey Bea open up Meet our New Family Friend...

Gotta love that she got all festive and threw out her pumpkins….but where’s the candy?

Can you imagine the possibilities?  Kate adds milk bottles, mail, rain boots and all sorts of mini-sized goodies typically made for doll houses.

 I smile every time I walk by, and it has become a little game with T and I to see what Beatrice is up to.

      Thanks Julie :) The big dog actually has really bad eyesight and since he is so old he generally keeps to his room (yes the dog has his own room haha, what can we say…no kiddos means Taj has his own room). We were really worried that the little one would sniff those pumpkins out and gobble them up but she hasn’t even noticed them. I tried to get her to go near them so that I could watch her reaction but she wanted nothing to do with it. She is usually never in the living room without us, so we can keep an eye out in case she decides they are a snack!

    This is the cutest thing ever! I might just have to copy this. When I was living with my parents, I had little mouseholes painted on my baseboards (a la Tom and Jerry) which were super fun…but this is even funner ;)
