My Next Dream Project

I am a bee who likes to dream.  I like to dream up projects and I like to find inspiration from blogs and Pinterest.

Here's my latest buzz......

We have a playhouse in our backyard.   
Baby Bee did not go in the playhouse at all this summer.  
It's been sadly neglected.  

So, Baby Bee and I have been talking and she doesn't really want to use it as a playhouse anymore.  So we talked about making it a Girls' Clubhouse.  

I was lucky enough to grab a couple of wicker chairs and a wicker table from the Sewing Bee's Great Downsizing and that was the start of my inspiration.

I went out and took some pictures so you could see the sorry state it is in.
 (dead plant, entrance blocked by vintage bicycle)
(sad little window box and lots of cobwebs) 
(dust and dirt) 
(furniture piled in there willy nilly) 
(sweet little touches already there) 
 (never could find a spot for this cute rolling pin in the house)
(cute new table hiding under the sad little wicker cushions) 
 (forgot this cute little basket of faux flowers was out there)

Do you see the it???
The potential that is???

But this is what it has the potential to be......

1.  The floor - I really have a thing for checkerboard floors so I can see painting something like this on the wood floor - the green and white is perfect!
2.  We'll need seating - or - dreaming spots...
 These were made from crib mattresses.  Baby Bee's crib is in the garage and it's white might be charming in our clubhouse.
And the Sewing Bee gave us two wicker chairs.
 They will need to be painted....yellow? turquoise? or green?
 Oh and there was a little wicker table....
 Turquoise with faded florals would be perfect!
And there will definitely be bunting out of vintage hankies......
 or floral fabrics! many dreams.  Will the weather hold and I can get some of these projects done???

Only time will tell, 
but in the mean time.....a bee can dream, right?

What are some of your dream projects?  
I'd love to know!

Thanks so much for buzzing by for a visit!
Such a treat to see you.
