Princes Nagger took advantage of the warmish weather Mother Nature blessed us with over the weekend to spend some quality time outside.  At some point she wanted me to come check out something she had done, promising that it would be really cool.  It was.  She ‘decorated’ her sad playset with the pile’o’beads she’s loved to play with since she was 2:

Even though this playset has definitely seen better days (it was a hand-me-down and even then probably should have been relegated to a burn pile but it wasn’t in our budget to buy a new one) she loves to hang out on it reading, swinging, sliding or just making up fun imaginary games.   The platform at the top of the slide, in spite of it’s dilapidated mode and the tarp ‘roof’ long gone, she still refers to it as her ‘clubhouse’.  She decided her ‘clubhouse’ needed more pizazz, hence the beadwork:

I love that she has no problem with ‘making do’, and hopefully the budget will allow the purchase of a new and improved one before she gets too big/old to enjoy it.  Princess Nagger did say that if Creative Play (the brand of this playset) or any other playset company out there wants to send her one to review, she’d be happy to try it out thoroughly and give her honest opinion.

In the meantime, I think she’s done a great job prettying up the dilapidated one, don’t you?

  1. Very colorful and as long as it is safe and will not collapse on her I say keep it. Let her remodel it. Maybe some outdoor paint. Has she carved her initials into yet?

  2. Little kids her age are so creative. We seem to lose that as we get older. Mmmmm? I think we should all try to “make do creatively” at least once a week. You in?

  3. What a smart creative girl! Those beads sure do brighten up the space 🙂 Wouldn’t that be awesome if someone did send you a new playset?!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

  4. LOL. I kid you not, that looks exactly like our swing set (minus the beads!) My boys would like to join in your daughter’s campaign as well, should a company want to send an extra set. (I should take pictures of ours so you can see they really look the same! )

    Happy WW!

  5. sometimes kids “make do” better than we think they will. I always think that the kids will be disappointed if we can’t do this or that and they always seem to manage without being miserable.

  6. How very smart is she? 🙂 I love it!!! I need me some girl here. If someone would like to send me one to review…?:)

  7. Nice plug, mama. lol 😀 Seriously, she is such a creative little girl. I love that she can find fun anywhere, just like my girls. We raised they well, didn’t we? 😉

    Thanks for stopping by for WW! 🙂

  8. Ha! That is one of those things I will probably not get to experience, as a mom of two boys. Our stuff is all decorated with cars, trucks, men, and trains. Not nearly as fancy. She is too cute!!!

  9. Personally, I think the beaded play set looks fantastic!! I love that she’s able to see beauty in things and make them her own. Perfect.

  10. It looks GAR-GEOUS! I love those beads, Baby uses the same concept wherever she things some pretty-ing up needs to happen. Looks like fun all around!

  11. I love the beads too. It makes the swing set Fab-U-Lous! 🙂
    The last picture is cute with her hamming it up for the camera!

  12. LOVE IT! That is sparktacular! We live in Galveston and just got finished with all of the Mardi Gras festivities. We have beads handing from bed posts, fans, you name it, they are adorning everything! She did a super job!

  13. I think it’s GREAT that she has such a wonderful imagination! As long as it doesn’t become a safety hazard, I say keep it!! And let her keep exploring her creativity. 🙂

  14. Thank you for stopping by my blog, Stacy! I love, love what Princess Nagger did to enhance her play set! She has some good talents.

  15. Now that is one stylish tree house! I have never seen one look that gorgeous before. An interior designer in the making perhaps?

    Best wishes,
