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.

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.

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.
