phil&teds Dash Buggy

We have had the absolute pleasure of trying out the Dash Buggy by Phil&Teds and it has definitely come in handy the last few months with two sets of little legs to take on family adventures. The months of August and September have been a […]

Saturday morning I woke up my husband with a hot cup of coffee and told him to get dressed, pack his bag and get in the car. I had organised my sister to babysit the kids and planned to take him on a surprise trip […]

Ezra’s Room

Ezra’s Room

We sold our house and bought a new “doer-upper” when Ezra was only three weeks old. (crazy, yes!) I was never able to “nest” and create his nursery when I was pregnant as the old house didn’t have a spare room to give him so […]

Mr & Mrs say “I Do”

Mr & Mrs say “I Do”

Sometimes you just have to say yes to those questions that scare the absolute shit out of you. You know the ones that you have to r-e-a-l-l-y think about, ask everyone around you what you should do even though you know deep down what your […]

Shooting the new range for Buck & Baa

A couple of weeks ago we had our first photoshoot for Buck & Baa (which involved more than just my kids at home!) and it was so much fun! This would be one of my favourite jobs for Buck and Baa – I LOVE taking […]

Bye bye, Pear

Bye bye, Pear

We adopted Pear in December last year; A tiny mini rex rabbit, at just eight weeks old, he fit perfectly into my cupped hands. He was quickly claimed by Holly as “her bunny” and he had since spent many hours of each day on the […]

Simplifying Christmas Gifts

Simplifying Christmas Gifts

  …well, trying to! This year I have been seeing the “want, need, read, wear” posts all over social media and it’s a great idea! So this year for my kids my gift buying “strategy” was: One thing they have on their wish list A […]

The day my husband quit his job…

The day my husband quit his job…

I’ll be honest, I’m not much of a blogger. I have an internal struggle of “how much do I share” on the internet – how much is too much? Who the hell reads it anyway? But I have an online business and I rely on […]

Elf Baby – Crochet Baby Hat

Elf Baby – Crochet Baby Hat

I learnt to crochet when we first moved to Australia. My husband was working 13 hour days (and worked night shift too) and I was home with Sam. I got quite bored in the evenings when the babe went to bed so I sat at home […]

Milkbar® Portable Nursing Pillow

Milkbar® Portable Nursing Pillow

I have had the privilege of being able to breastfeed all three of my babies – and not without a few hiccups along the way. I endured the sore nipples, the blocked ducts and the uncomfortable engorged feeling when milk was coming in (or on the […]

Ezra’s Room

Ezra’s Room

house of mlk-9

We sold our house and bought a new “doer-upper” when Ezra was only three weeks old. (crazy, yes!) I was never able to “nest” and create his nursery when I was pregnant as the old house didn’t have a spare room to give him so I held out until we moved.

…even then, I still had to be patient as this room was used as my work room and he was sleeping in with us in the master bedroom. FINALLY when he was nine months old we were able to move out my things and renovate his room.

We still haven’t finished – I would like to add some more decor pieces and it still hasn’t got carpet (we are waiting until the master room is painted so we can carpet all the rooms at the same time. The wooden floors would be lovely to keep but it gets too cold here in winter so carpet is essential – especially in the kids’ rooms.

I have no theme for his room, I’m probably a bit eclectic in the fact that I change my mind and can’t decide on a set “theme” … I choose things I love, and I’ll make them fit!

The winning piece is that bloody amazing wallpaper! I feel in love with it the moment I saw it and NEEDED IT. I ordered it through Lewis’ and it was here in two weeks all the way from Europe.

I would have loved to get a new cot as this one is a bit bulky but he’ll only be in it for a few more months so it would have been a waste of money! I’d much rather use those funds to go towards carpet …. or curtains!

Scroll down for links of where to find some of the goodies in the photos.

Any questions, let me know! Feel free to link in the comments some decor pieces you think may fit his room too!
