Wee Gallery - Monochrome Baby Toys and Nursery Decor

Wee Gallery sent Luther some black and white goodies… Luther excitedly helped me unpack the Wee Gallery parcel from America. Once he’d pulled out the wadding, he swiftly grabbed the organic cotton, penguin cushion and carried it around gleefully. I love eco conscious products and the Wee Gallery does its best to use minimal packaging…

Baby Lit – Classic Novels for your Child

Baby Lit have sent Luther some illustrated classics to expand his mind (and to keep his mummy sane) I made a huge effort to read to Luther whilst he was really tiny. He didn’t appear to be taking that much interest. However, now that he’s older he goes to his bookcase and pulls out the…

Riddle Magazine – Christmas Column

…“The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there; The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar plums danced in their heads” So here we are, my last column of 2016. I have often felt a bit melancholy at this time…

The Making of Luther’s Christmas Stocking

When Luther’s daddy and I got together I made him a stocking for our first Christmas. I was thrilled to find some of the same red fabric left over in a drawer and I’ve made Luther a matching Christmas stocking. I’ve cut the letters, and the squares for them to sit on, out of felt…

Personalised Christmas Books from Penwizard

I am feeling so festive! Luther has been sent a gorgeous personalised book from Penwizard. I chose to get The Snowman and the Snow Dog as the imagery reminds me of being little and it’s quite traditional, but they have Peppa Pig and Ben and Holly options on their website. I am absolutely thrilled with…
