I LOVE Bunting

30 May

Love love love Bunting – this one is from Etsy – how lovely?

And then there’s this beautiful explosion of colour from the always gorgeous Attic 24

Cute bunting on a cake from Suzie Beezie on Tumblr

You can download this free printable to make your own gorgeous bunting from All Sorts . I reckon it would also look great on a cake!

Love this layout for some scrapbooking, especially the way they’ve used the bunting… hmm, or is it the colour (from UK Scrappers)

I’m sure you can imagine what this finished paper garland looks like – you can pop over to Spearmint Baby for the end result, but such a great (and free) resource to use!

Happy Birthday Bunting from Le Fru Fru

Bright Cosy Blankets & the Twitter Blanket Drive #TBD

20 Apr

Before your eyes wander further down this blog post, the real reason for this blog post is to hopefully raise awareness of The Twitter Blanket Drive or #TBD that is happening for the 2nd year running in South Africa. The campaign’s aim is to collect blankets for the poor and needy as winter fast approaches.  So – I challenge you to visit their website, or follow the Twitter feed using #TBD. And for a great summary of the campaign and how you can get involved you can visit Barrie Bramley’s recent blog post here.

And once you’ve done all that 🙂 enjoy the eye candy that follows in this blog post.

I just LOVE the blog (every inch of it) where this comes from – Attic24 – filled with beautiful colours and designs and all things so very very pretty.

I also love the simple colour combination of this crocheted blanket available on Etsy

Just kind of like this picture from

And the last one, also from Attic24

But, let’s not forget the real point of the blog – although I loved finding all these gorgeous bright, warm and cosy blankets, the kids and needy people in South Africa don’t even require a blanket that’s beautiful – they just need blankets that will keep them warm as winter approaches, so if you can, why not support the #TBD

Work of Ah ha arts

14 Mar

Found these beautiful pieces of canvas art at our Farmers Market this last week and just love their work. I’ve only uploaded some of their kids art work, but do visit Ahha Art’s website to view full portfolio.

Cars cars cars – perfect accessories for a boys room.

How much of awesome is this rocking vespa that I saw on Kid Crave


I also just love this idea for storing that hot wheels collection! (Seen on Lil Magoolie & originally from The Style Files)


And then there’s this cute book case from Dwell Studio

And lastly, a  real boy cot for your little man from Milk Deco (SA)

The Tenth and final Something every child’s room should have – Something they chose

3 Mar

The last in this ‘series’ of numbers 1 through 10 of a list  I originally saw on OhDeeDoh No 10 is ‘Something They Chose’. I thought it would be a great virtual inspiration board to go through points one to ten, one post at a time and  to add my own slant to their suggestions… For numbers 1 though 9 please check out our previous posts.

10. Something They Chose: It’s all too easy to get caught up in decorating a space for your tiny tots without any input. Try letting them pick out a few items and allow them to help create their own space, they’ll be far more intuitive than you think though they might need a little adult guidance.

This post was a little difficult as how do I choose something the little ones would choose! So here we go – it might not be for the bedroom specifically, but I can’t imagine any kid who wouldn’t LOVE having in their living spaces!

And lastly (had to add a bit of colour), doesn’t this cute little kid could have chosen
everything from the pink suitcases to her dress and cute boots. Just love the photo
from this photoshoot on this Tomkat Studio blog!


The 9th Something – Something with Colour!

2 Mar

“9. Something With Color: Even if you love a totally monochromatic room (we do too!) there has to be some bit of color somewhere. A pillow, a throw, a mobile or even a rug, something to make the balance between cool and comforting and warm and bubbly exist!” (Original post from OhDeeDoh)

Colour is obviously something we’ve never had a problem with. I love this nursery with so much colour, but still so well balanced with the white of the room.

I admit – I have colour organization envy here! Isn’t this perfect for any child’s room. (Image taken from this article ‘Cutting through the clutter of toys‘) One day when I’m big, I’m also going to be so beautifully organized!

And if you’re looking for a simple colour solution, it looks like they’ve just used ribbon here. Got to love a bit of ribbon huh!
