Tree houses for grown-ups.

Oh yes...we're talking outdoor spaces for the kids...must be the school holidays approaching. Only this time I'm indulging an adult desire for a classic tree house.

Cute crochet ideas for kid's rooms.

After many years of apparent inability I have finally mastered the art of crochet!

But I'm producing these little grey rectangles at an alarming rate now...


I think I have a long way to go before I reach the standards of my favourite maker of crocheted accessories, Anne Claire Petit...but I'm working on it...

And what about these useful ideas to add a touch of 'hand-made' in kid's rooms...

Stars, a timeless decor motif for kids' rooms.

The star motif is quite an important symbol in my life. It forms the basis of my business logo and ties in beautifully with kid's room design...which is what I do for a living!
So, naturally, I love to see it used as a decorative feature in a kid's room...like these...
