Wallpaper for little people

These wallpapers from Green Child are so sweet.  They'd be perfect in a little nursery or playroom.  I'm still collecting ideas for my boys' room, there are so many brilliant ideas out there :)

Isn't this time of year exciting?  As the evenings are staying lighter for longer I start thinking about summer and all the things that come with it: packing up a picnic, going for walks, eating outside (I don't know why, but everything tastes better eaten outdoors!)

Today, Victoria of A Subtle Revelry launched Styled., a gorgeous online magazine featuring lots of beautiful parties and celebrations.  It's fab!  And if you click on the anniversary link on page 127, you will find the anniversary celebration I surprised my husband with.  There are some really nice ideas in there that I will definitely be trying out.

Snack boxes

How cute are these car shaped snack boxes?  My little guys would love it if I pulled these out on a long car journey or a picnic.  What a great idea.

Shared Boys' room

The Mother of these boys has created a gorgeous room for her boys to share.  There are so many cute little details, like the pictures hanging up on the line above the beds and the painted tray on the wall full of little toys.  The clouds on the wall are lovely too.

Have a lovely weekend :)

Urban Outfitters bedding

I love the colours on this bedding from Urban Outfitters.  Just that little bit different from the usual duvet covers and pillowcases we see :)

Temperley London

I first came across Alice Temperley's wedding dresses when I started buying bridal magazines in preparation for my wedding, and her designs are just as gorgeous as ever. Just that perfect mix of whimsical yet classic designs.  I love the sequins and beading on the bottom dress.

Grandad's birthday present

My Grandad is a keen gardener, so for his birthday I bought a few items to help him in the garden, such as clippers, seed packets etc. and put them in a glass jar.  I printed his name on some pretty blue card and wrapped it around the seed packets, then made a little tag which was tied around the jar with string.  Simple but effective :)

I love Fridays.  Nice meal, glass of wine, planning the weekend...I'm dreaming of warmer weather at the moment.  My Grandad is 84 today so on Sunday we're having a party for him.  He's the best.  Here are a few things that have caught my eye this week:

A Cool maternity dress

Baby stripes (I can't resist!)

Cuteness from The White Company

Knitted Dinosaurs...

A top for your little pirate (so sweet!)

Have a fab weekend!

Fairytale tealights

What a beautiful idea for a Wedding or a party reception.  These would look fantastic as the night came in, twinkling against the branches of a tree.

Piles of pillowcases

I'm not sure why, but I find neatly stacked piles of things soothing - I like it when things are in order and put away where they should be.  I had a really good tidying session at the weekend - for once all these pillowcases are folded and put away in the cupboard rather than lying in the laundry basket waiting to be put away!

Pink Macaroons

These macaroons look so pretty, almost too good to eat!  They make me think of tea parties and gorgeous cake stands.  The recipe to make these if you're feeling adventurous is here.

Jamie loves to paint.  We get out our 'messy mat' (some oilcloth), spread it out over the kitchen table, get out all our paints and brushes and let him get creative.  I love his little works of art!
