Banana Bread Recipe

BANANA LOAF RECIPE I used to make Banana Bread/Cake or Muffins when the banana-lovers in my home were away or for some reason stopped eating them… in this new regime of ‘Staying Home’ I think taking a Banana and making it become so much more is pleasure for both the stomach and the mind. This is my favourite , its the quickest and easiest as well as the most moist I’ve ever made, and in the spirit of

Lighting Solution

LIGHTING SOLUTION I am a little obsessed with lights, not the ceiling downlight variety, but pendants and lamps of all description. The hardest thing about hanging your pendant is the position you want it to hang is most likely NOT where the electrician has wired it and so enter looped lights.  Yes you can love your light cords, now available in a variety of pattern and colours they are something to be admired not hidden away as in days

Love your bedroom

LOVE YOUR BEDROOM This one room needs to set you up for your day, it needs to inspire, rejuvenate, as well as excite you.   That’s a lot to ask in a space that is often neglected in terms of decorating.  Think about it; not many people get to see this room, but as its where you both start and finish your day it’s probably the most important to your well-being. Quick Tips Invest in a good quality bed

Best Christmas Ever

BEST CHRISTMAS EVER Just a few words and a few highlights from our Christmas at My Little House 2017.  It was a much quieter affair with just the close family.  Missing the annual soccer game, but loving the pool, which now occupies the grass that provided the Soccer field.   Hygge NZ Style! Life doesn’t need to be complicated, simple pleasures of laughter, good food and wine, family and pets.   If you stop and take in what you have

How to set up a Bar Cart

HOW TO SET UP A BAR CART There is something ultimately sophisticated about a Bar Cart or Drinks Trolley.  Popular in the mid-century they are finally making a comeback and they are better than ever.  But don’t be daunted by the Pinterest and Instagram beauties, you too can have a perfectly styled cart simply and affordably. The cart itself is a matter of preference, whether you love vintage, the glitz of a brass and glass trolley or a

Its a wrap

IT’S A WRAP Gone are the days we buy a three pack Christmas wrap bundle at the supermarket, no, we’ll leave that to Santa for the Children’s stockings.  Let’s face it, today we are all about aesthetics, if something looks beautiful then it warms our hearts and encourages our minds to seek out the beauty in everything around us. The Christmas Table at my little house is all about a theme, we’ve had Geometric Glamour, Woodland Winter, Vintage

That Shop

THAT SHOP “Have you heard about That new shop?”  Those were the words that inspired Wendy Martin to open one of her very own.   When she and her husband Simon moved into the property in rural Auckland two years ago she knew that one day the little outbuilding next to the house would become her own little cottage shop.  After Simon had done the hard yards with the structural and electrical work, Wendy set about making the interior

My Christmas Nest

MY CHRISTMAS NEST If you have been following me for some time you will know I have embarked on a journey of living a little more simply.  Taking time to appreciate the beauty in simplicity and quality.  I have shunned the chain store market in search of a more sustainable lifestyle where perhaps less is more.

Child Space

CHILDSPACE Creating a peaceful and calm home is one of my priorities, however each room must be reflective of the personalities that inhabit them and then come together cohesively as a whole house. Children’s rooms can be neglected, after all their interests wax and wane over time and keeping up with those trends or fads can become expensive. Merchandise is cleverly marketed to children, not you and so if your littlest is Barbie – mad you can be sure

Rosemary and Orange Shortbread

ROSEMARY and ORANGE SHORTBREAD I am a sucker for pretty things, pretty things that taste good, even better, so when I stumbled upon this gorgeous post on Lunch Lady Blog with a simple recipe, put together in cohorts with our very own Elenor Ozich  I had to try it.
