Love The Little Things 19th December 2014

Love The Little Things time again with Morgana over at But Why Mummy Why.

Another autopilot week on the blog for me.  Not had much chance for social media either, but we’re all still here!

Read

Spied a rather though provoking post by Amy over at 2boys1mum last night about raising a gender neutral child.  I’m not one for stereotypes and it just reminded me of my rage when Munch was told by nursery that blue is for boys and that only boys have short hair.  I’m not committed to the cause.  I do try to keep her mind open though.

Take a read…what’s your thoughts?

Watched

This vlog had me in tears this week.  Maybe it’s the music…maybe it’s the way it’s put together….or maybe it’s just the cuteness of the excitement on kids faces at Christmas.  Take a peek at the lovely Emma week 2 of advent video over at Life at the Littlewood:

Heard

By far the best thing I’ve heard all week!  I would love to witness something like this one day.  It’s so amazing (and I actually thought it was the bloke from Erasure!)

Made

Getting crafty in the lead up to Christmas and got a few bits from my favourite craft shop….Home Bargains!  This week we painted some tree decorations

Wore

The week before Christmas wouldn’t be the same without the Christmas Jumper!  I found this little number (This is not a Xmas Jumper) at River Island (although £20 online, but £30 instore…shame on you River Island!).  I teamed it up with leggings and my black boots from last weeks ‘wore’ for our office night out (which was pretty casual!).

And lastly..

We lucked out this week at Tesco, when Munch got to meet Santa who was outside.  We got a rather quick photo. I did want to stage a pose, but there was a rogue kid making a bee line for the main man, so I was lucky to get this, which as it turn out captures her true excitement!

Have you ever seen a bigger grin?!

Alternative Christmas Trees

December 17, 2014

Given that I’m stuck in renovation limbo this Christmas and I wouldn’t dare do a holiday home tour, like last year, I needed to find a way to bring my festive taste to you this year.  First up it’s alternative Christmas trees. We have 1 traditional tree in the house and next year I want to add a tree, of sorts, to all the living areas.

Christmas Tree Wall Art

Whether it’s laid out by lights, wood, or decorations, I really love these ideas for an alternative Christmas tree, which is ideal for a small room, or one with chunky furniture.

Wooden Christmas Trees

I love these! Completely fits my style around the house.  I would put one of these in the grown up living room, and decorate with the fragile decorations that need to be kept away from small hands!

Creative Christmas Tree Ideas

Ofcourse, the creative amongst you can knock a tree up out of most things found around the house or garden.  I love these ideas for an alternative Christmas tree. Alternative Christmas Tree ideas 1 Left to right: Ladder tree, Log Christmas TreeDeluxe wooden Christmas Tree
