Well my third baby is due to arrive very soon and I am super excited! The room is all set up ready to go and I just can’t wait to hold my precious son or daughter in my arms. We don’t know the gender yet but what I DO know is this pretty nursery is not going to stay all lovely and beautiful like this very long once we bring bub home and the reality of life with three kids sets in….. so I thought I had better take some photos to share on the Blog here with you before sleepless nights and dirty nappies take over! I also want to show you the three simple decorating projects I made to add a bit of personality to the room.
I am so excited to FINALLY be able to present my daughters pretty bedroom here on my Blog. This Shabby Chic inspired room has been a work in progress for the past year or so and has certainly been a labour of love. I am thrilled with the results and have enjoyed making a few special things for the room, then bringing it all together. I hope you enjoy the tour!
I don’t know about you, but our family seems to use tissues ALL the time. We use them not just for noses but for spills and bumps and all sorts of things. This is why we have ended up with a tissue box in just about every room in the house.
Though you can buy many pretty patterned tissue boxes these days, it is nice to have something that lasts a bit longer and permanently matches in with the room.
“You’re an IDIOT !”
The words hit deep and hard in the heart of my precious seven-year old.
I saw his pain and recognised it for what it was. This was one of those important moments in parenting. The kind you don’t want to stuff up. A pivotal learning opportunity… and I prayed I’d have the right words to say.
The words that bubbled out of my mouth ended up surprising even me! It was certainly a teachable moment … but what I wasn’t expecting was that the lesson was intended for me, and YOU too !
Jewellery boards are so pretty and very practical for women of any age……. I really do think every woman and daughter should have one! You can custom design a space to display all your gorgeous hairclips, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. The great thing about it is that it doubles as an art display so you can enjoy looking at all the pretty things even when you are not wearing them!
In today’s tutorial I will show you some jewellery boards I have made plus a few links to some other cool ones I found. I will also walk you through the steps to take if you would like to make one for your self (or your daughter or a friend!).
Life can take an unexpected turn at any time in any of our lives. The things we are focussing on and doing in this present moment in time, that seem so very important, can all come to a sudden halt.
Our perspective shifts.
Our priorities drastically change and survival mode sets in…..
That’s what happened to me recently and today I take some time to reflect on what has got me through.
