Minikin handmade paper dolls by artist Adrienne Brown-David
I recently discovered the charming Minikin paper dolls by Adrienne Brown-David. This American artist and mother of four girls created a sweet line of vintage-inspired paper figurines. At first, she lovingly made them as  a special gift for her daughters to play with. She wanted her girls to have a uniquely personalised toy.  Eventually, that ...

Studio in our garden -- some inspiration and ideas
We're building a little studio in our back yard -- a space for a home office, and a place for guests to stay when they come to visit! It's going to be so nice to have that bit of extra space (and to finally have a workspace and desk instead of using our dining table!). I ...

Make your own Christmas wreath -- it's easy!
  This was one of those experimental craft projects... but I figured there is NO way we can't make our very own Christmas wreaths. So, I gathered some supplies dropped by a friend's house, had a cup of tea, and got right down to wreath-making work. And we are so happy with our experiment.... and the ...

The most beautiful wooden animals by T-Lab
My husband returned home from an overseas work trip with these beautiful treasures of wooden animals. They are aesthetically captivating, so very soft, smooth, light as a feather, and lovely-to-hold. You wouldn't even realise they were wood at first. Perfect for tiny hands, with such lovely undulating curves, and the most fragile little hand-painted lines ...

Waiting for baby... our nursery corner
The waiting game has began! I'm nearly 39 weeks pregnant and it can be really any day now... or not! I always find these weeks around the due date so strange. All is quiet and calm, everything is more or less prepared for the arrival of the baby. And no one knows when or how ...

Tips for decorating a teen girl's bedroom from Bodie and Fou
My friend Karine from Bodie and Fou got in touch last week to share her recent before-and-after renovation project of her daughter, Mila's bedroom. Mila is the same age as my eldest (and she's also really into surfing!) so it's always interesting for me to see the girl version of twelve years old. (I often marvel ...

Everything Under the Sun is a new book out by Molly Oldfield. The book is a collection of answers to 366 curious questions asked by children from around the world. Fascinating facts are accompanied by vibrant illustrations from a selection of great illustrators, making the book as cute as it is educational. The book is based on the award-winning podcast @everythingunderthesunpod also by Molly Oldfield, where she and other experts answer questions sent in from children. We’ve been listening to Molly’s podcast episodes in the car, and we’re all learning so much! We’ve learned about bees and wind, narwhals and unicorns, to Egyptians and mummies. It’s so cute! I can’t recommend the book highly enough. Whether you read a question a day, or dip into it whenever you are feeling curious, this is a book to treasure and share all year round. It would also make a wonderful birthday gift for any young person in your life. @mollyoldfieldwrites @courtneyadamo #babyccinobooks #babyccinoreads
