Halloween Bug

I've never been a big Halloween fan, always chalking it up to consumerism gone mad.  But this year, as I roamed the brightly decorated streets of our neighbourhood with my little boy all dressed up, listening to the shouts and cries of excited children all around me proudly showing off their painstakingly crafted costumes, I could literally feel my soul being touched by something quite profound.  I can only assume that it was community spirit - these days, it can be a very hard thing to find, let alone recognise!  Is it such a bad thing I wonder, to bribe little children with sweets to talk to their neighbours?  

And look... it's not everyday you get to see two giant rabbits holding hands in your street!

Friday Blessing

Have I mentioned lately how crazy our lives have become now that both my husband and I work from home with a very vocal toddler beneath our feet?  Yes, you're right... I have... repeatedly!  Sorry.  Some days I feel like my brain might actually burn out, that it will start billowing smoke and simply shut down.  I'm developing a Jeckyl & Hyde personality disorder - Mama for two minutes, Designer for one.  But every day I discover new things about myself... like I can simultaneously blog and mash banana, all while playing peek-a-boo with a stuffed rhino!  It is a crazy, chaotic and wonderful life filled with precious moments tucked into the folds of the mayhem.  I am so blessed to spend my days sitting across the studio from the man I love with our beautiful boy quietly chewing carpet samples in the corner.  Life doesn't get much better than this... except maybe when my boys bring me flowers!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone x

Vintage Bookshelf

I've always loved the idea of having a really interesting old bookshelf to house all the beautiful vintage books I find in my travels.  This recycled spindle would be perfect, particularly in a children's room... such an ideal height for little people!
