A Crafty Day

My daughter Ava and I just love a spot of crafting. At the beginning of the school holidays, one of the first places we head is Hobbycraft, as it’s been our go-to craft supplier for an age now. When Hobbycraft asked if we’d like to get stuck into some crafty projects*, we both (literally) jumped…

Today I launched a giveaway on Instagram, the prize is a stunning vintage style mirror like this one above, that sits on my newly wallpapered fire breast here at Little House. I purchased it from Grace & Glory Home, a fab shop I discovered over on Instagram and I was blown away by the variety…
