We built a treehouse!!!!
I've had this plan floating around in my head for at least a year and I finally acted on it last week after I found a cheap used slide.
It's not very big--in fact, it's more like a platform with a slide coming down. Still, it's perfect for two little girls to climb all over.
I have a vision of turning this corner of the yard into an enchanted hideaway for the girls, filled with fairies and gnomes and butterflies to keep them company, and old stumps, rocks, and toadstools to sit on and entertain their guests. I was inspired in part by this darling fairy garden. And someday we might need an outdoor mud pie kitchen like this one.
And to start us off is this little toadstool, inspired by these. I made it out of a stump that we had to cut down when we built the treehouse and an old wooden salad bowl from DI that I spraypainted. I looooooove it. Isn't it darling?
