sorry...i forgot the day !

I'm having a little crazy week, orders have been high and lots of time has been spent packing up myself, family life has not ran to 'routine' and I forgot yesterday was Transformer Tuesday, rather than do a TT on the wrong day I'll get my days right and resume TT next week.

  flowers to say i'm sorry

paper shades we love

Almost as much as I love chairs I love lighting, these likes have all escalated since my mini1's arrived by the way so we can thank them for my hunting and foraging even more so than usual of some really gorgeous happy finds. A very recent such find are these fabulous paper hanging shades and those who are fans of Helen Dardik's illustration work you will be doubly excited, Helen is a truly fabulous original illustrator and her works are inspiring and happy so we're very excited with this post, hope you are too.

You can see some other wonders from where we found these at Raw Space.

childhood memories #3

Somy playhouse type toy I cherished and hold fond memories of was The Family Treehouse as shared last week (and thanks for all the DM's and your memories too.)
This week childhood memory is really my sisters, as she is a little younger she got the 80's version of a Family Treehouse which was the Big Yellow Teapot by Bluebird.
Just like the Treehouse we have the Teapot back at my parents house too complete with car, people, furniture, even box.
Oooh our littlies are so lucky to have all these retro vintage toys at hand at Nanna & Grandpa's.

This leads straight on from fab find #6 really as it is from the same online store as we featured earlier this week when we brought you the fantastic apple and pear shelves over from Candy Stripe Cloud.

Wooden bird and branch hook for all that hanging and hooking.

childhood memories #2

So, who out there had/has one of these, The Family Tree House.

The Family Tree House is a classic, simply fabulous and whenever we are at my folks out it comes and generates as much fun as it did back in the late 70's early 80's so luckily for me and my Mini1's the girls in my family are not as the men might call us 'hoarders' but 'collectors' and keepers of those special memory items.

The memories and nostalgia these toys hold is warming and not only do I love watching my Mini1's enjoy imaginative play but it's also the recalling of the memories of what The Family Tree House holds for me. It's like that game when someone says a word and you then say a 'linking' word. For me if I was to play that game thinking of The Family Treehouse it would build a whole chapter or two of my childhood and those very special friends and family, some of who are not with us today but they are there in The Family Tree House.

Enjoy those toys of the past, bring them out, dust them down and let the happy times play.

transformer tuesday #13

There has been lots of collage designs recently being designed cut and stuck recently and as the Mini1 always see what I'm up to in the studio Mini1 has been enjoying it so much and wanting to do her own, it's such a lovely way to create new creatures and friends, buildings and cities....
Yes there is another big plus as this cutting and sticking involves recycling again, so get your boxes, papers, and ideas at the ready to cut, stick and create some jolly wall art....

We used:
- recycled boxes, cut into shapes
- patterned papers
- gluppy glue
- scissors

This is what we had when we stuck our long panels together and they transformed a plain wall into Mini1's 'come alive jungle'
Our next collage is a big one to contrast with some of our favourite little framed ones, woohoo lets get cutting and transforming .......

Candy Stripe Cloud is filled with delights and fabness!
These wonderful fruityy shaped miniature shelves are our fab find for the wall. Mini1 just loves little things and how cute would her little treasures look on either the pear or apple shelf.

Transformer Tuesday #12

Todays transformation is not only a little late in the day but also it is not one of ours but of Martha Stewart especially for my sister!
We have oodles of plastic creatures and the kids love them when they're playing on their adventures, i do however think if a few could go missing it would be good and more aesthetic to do this to them!

Not only glitter I'd love to get the fluo paint on them, when we get round to our we'll share.

Martha used:
- plastic deer
- small paint brush
- white glue
- powder glitter
- bowl
