Today Isabella is going to see her house for the first time and I am hoping to film her reaction. Many of you have said that you would like to see it too and so I will be adding it to a blog post to share with you. I can't wait to see her and although it is raining now it won't stop the fun.
When I finished the story last we had painted and built the house where it needed to be in the garden and Vickie and I had dressed it ... just a little !!
This is what it looked like but the ground underneath had not been finished.
The black matting was just to stop the weeds from growing through and needed to be covered.
Vickie had ordered some black rubber chippings
which are especially for children to play in as it is soft safe and clean.
So we got busy and spread them over the garden and Griff was the one doing the shovelling of the chips into the wheel barrow
The wooden edging will keep them in place and really finish off the whole area.
This is one really special playground for a three year old to call her own.
And there is room under the house for her car to live too.
We have added in a large wind spinner to the right of the steps and frog wind chime hanging from the top of the house.
There are little woodland creatures in the window boxes along with more windmills.
The bunting is in place on the outside and it looks absolutely wonderful ... I could play in there myself !!
The bunting is inside the house too as Isabella thinks that bunting means "Party"
The box under the table is full of garden toys for us all to play with her and Vickie has bought a watering can, garden gloves and some little tools
There is also have a green carpet to be placed back inside once the rain stops
I think this whole project has been amazing and in the space of a week we have totally transformed this little house
So let the fun begin and Isabella is going to be one very happy little girl and Nana Vickie (my daughter) and Great Gran (me) will be happy big girls too
More tomorrow ...
