Kids about the house!!

Attacked by a lightsaber!!

Mauritian drum

Painting for my eldests first birthday, from his Uncle.

Framed cards and one of my favourite childrens toys, a tinkletonk!!

A charity shop picture, a little fishing boy, A painted Mermaid (My eldest fell in love with Ariel when she kissed him in Disneyworld when he was 3/4?) A car from a lovely elderly gentleman, and russian dolls waiting to be painted.

A charity shop picture and a little blessing from The Vatican hanging above my eldests bed.

Curious George guarding the rest of the toys.

Bargain dinosaurs.

The youngest broke the lock, so this is how we stop him getting in!!!

Oh and lots of fingermarks. I no longer see the point of regularly cleaning them off.

Precious things, including: My nans steiff bear that she left my son when she died, a mauritian boat, a policeman frog that belonged to my husband, whose dad used to be a policeman and a homemade spider.

Aww what a fab collection of your kiddies stuff nice to photograph it all now as you'll look back fond memories of it all. The Steiff bear is gorgeous and a lovely keepsake from your nan.

I forget about all the fingerprints everywhere and trying to keep them out of things. Mine are getting older (10 & almost 8) so I'm worrying about preteen stuff mostly. UGH!!

I'm with you on the finger marks! We have glass doors between the living room and dining room and for some reason the girls will not leave them alone!

Love your pics, some houses you would hardly know there were kids there. Love the tinkletonk!

Definitely have the same problem with fingermarks everywhere ~ I officially have given up on housework...

Love the chiffon ribbon tying your doors together!
