Thanks to I Love Pretty Things I recently discovered Pinterest. Wow.....what a wonderful place.....eye candy galore!! I wish that I knew about this wonderful source when I was designing my nursery, because I have been so inspired by so many stunning rooms out are a few of my favourites that are being shared.

There are two amazing blogs that I have discovered recently that I would love to share with you all. The first is The Happy Home. Belinda posts about life in general and projects they have been doing around the home. The post that really caught my eye was the AMAZING (and most recylced cubby house).....check out the gorgeous photos below. I love the white and pastel colours. What a wonderful place for the kids to let their imagination run wild!!

The other blog is Thompson Family-Life. Danielle has a clear passion for vintage, kitsch crafts and design. Quite the opposite to the mellow colours in the above images, lots of 70's inspiration on this blog. Here are just a few of the amazing finds and creations Danielle has posted.

Enjoy these two amazing blogs!!
Am sure that some of you may have seen some of these amazing photos before, but I just couldn't resist sharing! This is how Adele Enresen from Helsinki entertained herself whilst on maternity leave. She creates these gorgeous scene, inspired by objects around her and her daughter Mila's outfits. You can see more of these creative images and follow Adele at her blog.

I may be jumping the gun here....but what is everyone going to do with all the beautiful used wrapping paper after chrissy?? If you are like me I have a hard time throwing gorgeous printed paper in the bin (even if it is the recycling). This inspired me to have a look around the web for some ideas of little crafty projects to do with the little fella once the excitment of Xmas and all the new toys has fadded. Here are a few of the ideas that I found. I love the bunting idea...thing we might make some and use to decorate the little ones cubby house!!

For me one of the best things about the Christmas season is all the delicious xmas baking!! Now that I have kids one of the best cooking activities is cookies!! Fun to make and fun to ice! I have found some wonderfully inspiring photos to tempt you all to dust of the cook books and hunt down those cookie cutters. For further inspiration drop by Sweet n Pretty, for amazing creations. In fact the top right corner image is one of their lovely images (the rest where found on Google Images, many for the wonderful talent at Martha Stewart, where there is a wonderful step by step tutorial for the gorgeous ginger people). For those of you wanting to branch out beyond the standard star or xmas tree, I have recently discovered a great Perth business Kool Cookie Cutters who stock over 300 unique cookie cutters. Enjoy cooking with your lovely little ones.......the more mess the more fun!!

Finally had time to sit down and put together the "girls stocking fillers under $15.00" post. This one was by far the many beautiful handmade accessories for little princesses. The hardest part was choosing amongst all the gorgeous products out there. Hope you (and your lovely little ones) like the selection that I have chosen. Enjoy shopping!! Simone x
