Kid's room garlands.

I can't think of anything that says Summer decorating more than a few paper garlands strung carelessly around a kid's room.
And they're so easy and cheap to make too...there's a few D.I.Y. examples here

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. The closest I've ever got to one of my own was a platform built around an Oak tree in my Dad's back garden...and that was for my nephews...so I wasn't officially allowed access...
It looked a bit like this...

...but I saw the potential...and would've been happy with this...

But how about these...sorry kids, the 'health and safety' bods would say it's too dangerous...so I guess these homes-from -home are just for the grown-ups...

Kid's room decor...dark walls.

Am I being a bit of a rebel here, or just a fool for ignoring the current love of 'all-white' kid's rooms...? Don't panic, I am still smitten by the popular Scandi-style decor but just fancied a little something different...

Cute crochet ideas for kid's rooms.

After many years of apparent inability I have finally mastered the art of crochet!
To say I've mastered this particular craft is probably a little premature...I've been on Pinterest, I've seen what the real masters can make...!
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...
