sweet dreams are made of this :: diy doily dream catcher

July 2nd, 2015|Categories: A Little Delightful, diy|Tags: , , |1 Comment

Chloe hasn’t been sleeping very well lately, and hasn’t felt like herself, so I thought making a dream catcher together would be a lovely way to do something for just her, with the hope too that a it would help her feel more settled and calm for bedtime. We’ve also been popping the vaporiser on in her room with some calming essential oils to see if that helps her unwind and have a peaceful sleep.
My mother in law gave me this doily about 9 years ago, and I just knew it would look beautiful as a dream catcher […]

DIY sensory bottles

April 23rd, 2014|Categories: diy|Tags: , , , |27 Comments

A little while ago I posted about some things I had made up for Chloe to help her wind down from school as she was struggling a little and was over tired. One of the things I made her was a sensory bottle, much like the ‘time out jar’ filled with glitter that I had seen on pinterest. Chloe’s is filled with pretty little beads and gems, sequins and glittler for her to shake and watch everything settle back down while chilling out.When I made Chloe’s I thought I’d make one for Noah as […]

{DIY} decorative glass bottles

 I wanted to share this quick and easy little way to decorate those popular glass milk bottles {or mason jars with handles or anything glass really – let your creativity run wild!} with something we probably don’t think much of {except during back to school time where most of us probably really don’t like it} – contact paper.I shared this photo a couple of months ago of some back to school afternoon tea prep for my kids and so many of you asked where I got our apple milk bottles so I thought I’d […]

Our Alfresco Make-Over :: Taubmans Endure Paint Challenge

March 25th, 2014|Categories: diy|Tags: , , , |4 Comments

This post is brought to you by TaubmansFor nearly five years {so the whole time we’ve lived in our house!} we’ve been a bit ‘meh’ about our alfresco area. It was never that inviting or anything special to look at. The huge wall of yellow brick left me very uninspired and Daniel and I literally just stuck 1/3rd of an old bamboo Japanese screen on there above the daybed in an attempt to ‘pretty’ up our outside area. Somewhere along the lines I added some string lights and we called it done. And it stayed like […]

{craft} home made clay ornaments

December 17th, 2013|Categories: crafts, diy|Tags: , , , |2 Comments

I have been seeing gorgeous ornaments using home made clay all over lately so I had to give it a go!It is made with bicarb soda (baking soda) and cornflour (cornstarch) so quite it’s very easy to get all the supplies you need! And it’s much easier to make than I though it would be, and while using this home made clay, it brought back memories of being in 2nd grade where we made these too but with our handprints – I still have mine all these years later, so I’m fairly certain these ornaments […]

quick and easy wall update

October 9th, 2013|Categories: diy|Tags: |0 Comments

I was in Ikea the day before Owen was born {have I mentioned that I love Ikea!?} and I was drawn to the teal colour of these Malma mirrors. When I saw their price of $2.95 each I couldn’t resist and decided to see if I could get a square instagram print to fit on top of the mirror. I had been searching for some nice square frames as I have so many favourite instagram photos I’d love to display in our home. Of course I didn’t get around to trying it out and popping […]

Finally I’ve had some time to sit down and share Owen’s dreamy cloud nursery with you all! I was so excited to share this with you and had hoped to share shortly after I shared his little nook in our bedroom but then he arrived and things have been pretty crazy since then :o}At first we weren’t going to find out girl or boy so we chose an aqua and white colour theme as a neutral starting point for the nursery. I had planned on adding in some yellow and blue or green for […]

Dollhouse mini-makeover

April 29th, 2013|Categories: diy|Tags: , |12 Comments

Some of you may remember before Christmas last year we embarked on a little doll house make over for our little Chloe. We decided to go with a smaller sized, second hand doll house as I just couldn’t find one that I absolutely LOVED considering her age {2.5 at the time} and we weren’t sure how much she’d play with it since she loves cars and trains and blocks and duplo and her play kitchen. So we searched Gumtree for ages to find a perfect wooden dollhouse to do up and give her for Christmas.
