5 DIYs To Try (+4 for the kids!)

July 5, 2015 | 5 DIYs To Try

Hey guys! Are you all having a nice weekend? For everyone in the US – Happy 4th for yesterday! :)

We’re spending most of the weekend (well, while Arlo’s napping anyway) packing up our apartment for the move in a couple of weeks. Let’s be honest, not much packing gets done with an 11 month old around.. so we’re starting early and giving ourselves plenty of time. Still, not a load of fun really.

So instead of packing right now, I’m taking a break to look at some other much more interesting things – like DIYs to try! How great are these?

1. Dishwasher Safe Hand Painted Dishes from Delia Creates  2. Spring Garden Mantelpiece from Design Sponge  3. Citronella Candles from Sugar and Charm  4. Flower arrangement from Atilio  5. Copper Candles from The Merry Thought.

And because there are such sweet Kids DIYs around at the moment, I’ve put a few of my favourites together below too :) Kids’ stuff is always so cute!

FF Gift Guide for Kids

November 25, 2013 | Christmas, Guides

Hi, happy Monday! Did you all have a nice weekend?

This morning we’re doing the last of our Gift Guides – for the kiddies! I had a bit of a tricky time putting this one together if I’m honest… I don’t have any kids, and *obviously* kids range so much in age, so it was hard to narrow down my selections! There’s just so much gorgeous stuff out there for kids! I’ve tried to choose gifts for a range of ages, so hopefully there’ll be something here for everyone :)

A video for your weekend

I own 4 Oliver Jeffers books, and I don’t even have any kids! I adore them, completely, and could just read them over and over again. I actually get teary reading the end of ‘Lost and Found‘.. not many kids books can do that to me!

I was so happy to come across this video of how Oliver Jeffers goes about creating his books.. it’s totally quirky and fun, exactly how the books are. Fabulous!

Have a wonderful weekend, see you back here Monday :)

Inspired by a little girl’s party

July 13, 2012 | Inspired by...

I was hanging out on Pinterest the other day (as you do) and came across this party thrown by TheHennCoop for her daughter’s 1st birthday party. I was completely taken with the sweet and simple decorating style, which seems refreshing after seeing so many over the top kids parties on Pinterest lately!

So I thought it might be fun to put together a few finds inspired by the photo..
