We have had a lovely day out today  with the day starting with @didikicks football with Zach, then a lovely trip to Ponderosa Zoo which has had lots of new work going on for the enclosures since we last went... Zach and his friends absolutely love this place and the animals ☺️🙌 then back home for a quick rest before popping out again for a trip to @ikeauk  which I'm super looking forward to. We are going to have a mooch around the store, have some meatballs for dinner and then go on to the IKEA Sleep Event that we have been invited to ☺️ We have the grandparents on hand to play with Zach whilst Jon and I go to the event and dream of a restful night's sleep ... Does that even happen when you have a toddler? 😂
I also got my hair cut this week and I love having a fringe 😊 It's such a good feeling when you get a new hair doo ♥️♥️♥️

SOLD - Just popped this Landmarks of World History Books into my Etsy shop.  Oh how I love these books.  Just like the regular Landmark series of US history just in world history form.  Link in profile. (And I know it’s a little late or way early but wouldn’t these be perfect for your Christmas decorating?!?!). .

Day 23 : Sofa So Good and today it definitely is, especially when your husband brings home a Dairy Milk Mc Flurry for you whilst sitting snug under a blanket on the sofa 😊
Tonight I have been doing some more planning of learning based toddler activities to do with Zach that I will probably write a blog post about in the not too distant future but for now have a great nights sleep x

Day 21 : Monday Mention. It has been a busy day here trying to get things done whilst some of my dear friends took Zach out for the day. I feel that I accomplished a lot around the house but also saw how much more needs to be done... Do you ever have days like this?
Anyway for today's #MondayMention I am tagging this great but little known blog by @betterimperfection which is where the photo is from. There are some great tips for organising and decorating your home's so go and check it out. 
Have a good night X

Hop Little Bunnies, Sleep Little Sheep! So with a new year comes lots of new designs, colours and themes for our lovely hanging mobiles,  garlands and wall art. This mobile is one of our newest editions and was made for a baby shower gift for one very special baby 😊 I'm sure it will look amazing when it is hung in the nursery 😍

So for 2019 we will be  showing you all our designs we have been working hard on over the past few months and cant wait to show you! 
In the mean time it would be great to know what themes you have in your homes or tag an account that you love to follow for their home style inspiration.

Day 19 : Wall To Wall .  I am amazed at how taking part in a monthly challenge provides so much motivation to sort out our home, declutter and make our home feel beautiful. We went to the market last week and bought these beautiful daffodils after having a walk around the shops. After putting them in various places about our home I have settled on them living in our bathroom to make it feel bright and fresh in all this cold weather along with my various candles that I need to start using 😊 
Stay warm this weekend everyone x

Day 17 : Spare/ Kids Room of @myhousethismonth . Yesterday didn't go quite to plan (as life often does🙈) so this post is going up today instead. We were trying to have a tidy the house day but, as anyone with young children will know, this is a very hard task to do if you want to get some proper tidying done. Needless to say Zach and I set this train track up in the kitchen so I could wash the dishes and he could play 'choo choo' 😂 We bought this train track from IKEA and has become one of Zach's favourite toys.
I think that slowly the kitchen is becoming the 'kids room' so that I can actually get things done and play at the same time... it gets a little bit tricky when the periodic table stacking bricks come out and they are all over the floor in mini towers 😂😂😂 #characterfulhome

Day 16 : Old or New. This is a great theme for today and really sums up our cosy 1930's home! I really love the old fire surrounds in our home but I really want to sand them back and remove the varnish that someone has slap-dashed all over them ... that will be for a day (or week) where I have lots of spare time! 
This orchid was bought recently for Christmas and sits perfectly in the centre of the mantle piece along with a clock my husband bought a while back from @TKMaxx and a frame from our friends to celebrate our wedding; A great mix of old and new together! It is also amazing how a few living plants and flowers about the home can really lift your mood - even better when someone kindly buys some for you too!

What are your best flowers or plants for the home? My next purchase will probably be a fern or two as I love the texture of the leaves 😊

Day 15 : Store It.  Who else loves pasta? These jars are such a great idea to store pasta in as well as making our kitchen look pretty too. Pasta is one of my all time favourite types of food, it is just so moreish... it is probably a good idea that we do not live in Italy as we would be eating out every day and night 😂 
If any one has any ideas for cooking pasta post in the comments, I think its always great to share recipes and new ways of cooking!

Day 13 : My Happy Place. Standing on these beautiful tiles is definitely one of my happy places - they just make me smile so much and make our cosy bathroom feel amazing! I am so glad that we chose these tiles, it's funny how such a small decision can make a huge impact on our homes and lives. 
Do you have anything in your homes that makes you feel great? 
Tonight I am going to finish making some felt fish I have been creating for Zach. So far I have made a felt French Angelfish and tonight I am finishing a Yellow Tang fish... My hope is to create an underwater sensory learning activity for us to do together as well as using up some of my felt collection I have bought from @hobbycrafthq I will put some photos up in the stories section later on.

Enjoy your evening x

Day 11 : Mirror Mirror. Time has just flown by this week so I have missed out a few of this weeks posts but hey that's just life. Zach and I have been having fun catching up with friends and even go the chance to take him to a gymnastics parent and baby class where he had great fun on the balance beams as well as the massive trampoline run into a pit of foam pieces... A-MAZING! 
I took this photo of our bathroom mirror - I love the lights and Zach thinks it's great that the mirror uses motion senses to turn the lights on and off 😊 I really love our bathroom with the subway tiling, the shower with sliding doors which makes the most out of the space we have and our floor tiles (I will take another photo to show you at a later date... they are absolutely gorgeous!) Have a good night everyone!

Day 6 : Sunday Funday.  This morning I have actually managed to do some more stitching on this lovely bunch of stacking animals. My very kind mother-in-law crocheted these for Zach but hates the fiddly sewing involved to turn them into toys so I am trying to get little bits done every now and again. These three are almost completed with the giraffe needing a few more spots until he is finished. Hopefully I will be able to get the lion and monkey finished which are not pictured here soon so Zach can have fun stacking them all together 😊

2019 Goals : Make A Characterful Home 
As we welcome in the new year it stirs up all the well-wishing emotions that we endeavour to live our lives by. At New Year I regularly hear “what are your New Year resolutions?” or “do you make New Year resolutions?” and often people struggle in either firstly creating them or once they have been made, sticking to them. So the question to you is, are you going to make any New Year resolutions for 2019 and if you are, what are they and do you think you will stick to them? 
My own New Year resolution will be to continue creating a Characterful Home with all of our surrounding family and friends for the whole of 2019, taking any opportunity to welcome others in and be hospitable. 
To be characterful means to be individual in an interesting, pleasant or unusual way, having lots of character – What a great opportunity to use this as a stepping stone to build the foundations of great friendship within our family home. I am a great believer in treating others how you would like to be treated yourself so let’s see how great we can make 2019!

DAY 17: Are you curious about Curious Egg...? Lorraine Aaron, a professional artist with an impressive wealth of experience, set up Curious Egg in 2015 with a mission to explore hidden studios and local artisan makers and entrepreneurs. She finds characterful homewares that are now available on HONE... yay! A few favourites: this Bronze Flush Thistle Velvet Cushion by an emerging textiles designer based in Edinburgh and inspired by the earthy colours of the Scottish landscape, the gorgeous Aida Glass Table Lamp and the unusual Peacock Palms Hand Tufted Rug. .

A few favourites: this Bronze Flush Thistle Velvet Cushion by an emerging textiles designer based in Edinburgh and inspired by the earthy colours of the Scottish landscape, the gorgeous Aida Glass Table Lamp and the unusual Peacock Palms Hand Tufted Rug. . . . . . . . . #artisticeye #characterfulhome #finecrafts #finecraft #artisan #handruftedrug #adventcalendar2018 #hone #objectsofdesire #cushions #cushionsofinstagram #lamp #lampsofinstagram #rugsofinstagram #interiors #interiordesign #homedesign #homedecor #homefurnishings #homeinspiration - 2 months ago

Good morning!
So after going into Manchester at 11am yesterday, Sam arrived home off his Stag Do at around 11pm, very drunk, staggered upstairs and went straight to bed. He is also wearing eyeliner.. 😂🤔
. . . . .
Day sixteen of #homediarydaily is
• L I G H T  F A N T A S T I C •
I got this light shade from Ikea and I love it.
I call it "The Mad Hatter hat." 😆
They also do it in a pink and purple I think. Today I'm going to enjoy a nice slow Sunday, got a couple of jobs to do, and then going to Sam's grandma's for tea! 😍

Enjoy your Sunday everyone! 💕

Galloping into the weekend on this 1950’s fairground horse! 🎠

We have a small obsession with fairground rocking horses at the mo and have acquired a few of them in the last month alone! There’s just something so lovely & nostalgic about them, and they make amazing quirky feature items in a room too! .

Late lunch break thought for the day: statement artwork. If it's gonna be big it better be interesting 💪🏼🌟How many hotels have you seen with a giant bland 'artwork' hung at reception that's been sourced from mass produced cheap offerings from a hotel 'supplier' . Give artists a platform and they won't disappoint. Wouldn't you rather have something memorable that makes your hotel different? I think the same applies to home decor - it's an expression of you and you are unique.  When you see real artworks by artists who have put their soul into a piece you get so much back. Good art is not expensive - it's VALUE and keeps giving. This piece is by the amazingly creative genius that is David Bromley. I LOVE yellow when it's tempered with earth colours and tones - what a living room! photo: House &Garden Australia.
