It’s time to spill the beans… I’m addicted to vinyl wall stickers!
There, it’s out.
Not that it’s been an easy obsession to hide… you try hiding a 1.5m x 1m black bicycle on your hallway wall, four green lace heats, and a turquoise elephant – it’s challenging!
It all started with Heidi’s nursery. The red birdcages and birds…
It’s about time!
Finally I’m able to provide a tour of little Zoe’s nursery (she might be little, but her double chin is increasing in size daily, and the tops of her legs look like a stack of bagels!).
This birch tree trunk has accompanied us on two house moves…destined to be put to good use ‘one-day’…
That day has now finally arrived. And my husband is thrilled. It was clogging up his garage, apparently.
I have used it as the centre-piece to our new daughter’s nursery (due to arrive in 8 days time).
Months ago I re-covered 2 canvases with burlap (I didn’t like the creation from a previous crafty exploit).
I had two ideas for these two new burlap canvases, but couldn’t decide.
Many would describe me as having ‘thing’ for butterflies and birds. Previous ramblings featuring birds and butterflies are testament to that.
Before making a decision between these two beautiful creatures, I wanted to see what they both looked like on the canvases, so created them both in a kinda draft format (so excuse all the pins holding everything onto the canvas).
There has been a gap of three months between the first option and the second.
Rather than get my nickers-in-a-knot making the final decision, I thought I’d let my blog readers decide for me.

We made it…. our (not so little) Heidi is now one! The photo below was taken before all her buddies arrived for her party last weekend. Whilst I love this photo, I prefer the ‘behind the scenes’ shots that show you her true personality… … Read More
When I first did a post on Heidi’s nursery (very close to a year ago, when she was born) I kept mentioning it was her temporary nursery because we were renting at the time (and the walls were a very vibrant blue which I hated). Until we had moved into the house we were building I never felt that her room was as I wanted it to be… so here it is her ‘real’ nursery, finally!
Before we go any further, I must share with you a You Tube clip from a TV show called Portlandia. I haven’t seen this show (or even heard of it, until last night), however it was brought to my attention by a friend who was over for dinner. This particular clip is called ‘Put a bird on it’ … Whilst watching it all I could think about was Heidi’s nursery – enough said (for now)…
